Bites from other Blogs

  • Just about any cake that you can think of would be welcome at a party, but somehow a Margarita Cream Cake, like the one that The Galley Gourmet recently baked, sounds as though it might be the perfect party cake. The super creamy “cake” requires no baking and is made with whipped cream, cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk – and is flavored with margarita mix, tequila and triple sec. A little bit of gelatin makes the mixture thick enough to slice, and a chewy-crispy coconut and salty pretzel crust makes a nice base for the dessert. It’s like a cocktail in a cake!
  • In the summertime, when strawberries are plentiful, it is great to have a few extra ideas on how to use them up. Strawberries are usually at their best when they’re not cooked or baked, so a dessert like this Strawberry Tiramisu Trifle from Jo Cooks. The layered dessert combines vanilla pudding, mascarpone cheese, coffee, ladyfingers and fresh berries. It’s easy to put together and is the kind of dessert that can be made well in advance, so that the flavors have plenty of time to marry. Chill it well before serving and you’ll have a sweet and satisfying dessert that is perfect for hot weather.
  • Another strawberry dessert can be found at Sips and Spoonfuls. This Strawberry and Pistachio Cake pairs strawberries with pistachios in a very easy to make, and very visually appealing, cake. The cake itself is made with a generous amount of pistachio meal, which you can make simply by grinding pistachios into a fine flour in the food processor, and pistachio milk, which is very similar to more common almond milk (which can be substituted here). The cake is topped with sliced strawberries that add a pop of color to the cake.
  • Chocolate chip cookies aren’t usually breakfast food, but when you combine them with cinnamon rolls then you have a winning – and breakfast appropriate – combination. Mis-Cake’s Oven AdventuresChocolate Chip Cookie Cinnamon Rolls with Brown Sugar Malted Glaze start with a sweet, fluffy yeast dough that is rolled out and stuffed with homemade chocolate chip cookie dough. The buns are rolled up and baked until they’re golden brown, and then they are topped with Malted Brown Sugar Glaze that makes then even more decadent. These are definitely over-the-top – but worth it for the chocolate chip cookie lover.
