Earl Grey and Lemon Mug Cake

Earl Grey and Lemon Mug Cake

Mug cakes are a lot of fun to make because they allow you to bake up a cake in less than five minutes, start to finish. I tend to experiment with flavors in mug cakes even more than traditional cakes because I know that I’m not sacrificing a lot of time or ingredients if a flavor combination doesn’t turn out to have the “wow” factor ...

Red Velvet Rocky Road Cake

Red Velvet Rocky Road Cake

Red velvet cake is delicious, but as a fan of red velvet cake, you don’t need to limit yourself to a traditional layer cake with cream cheese frosting.

Cranberry Pistachio Pound Cake

Cranberry Pistachio Pound Cake

Buttery pound cake is always welcome in my kitchen. Pound cakes don’t usually get too “dressed up” for the holidays and are served quite plain, more often than not.

Their dense, tight crumb will support the weight of all ... Read More »

Halloween is a great excuse to have some fun with your baked goods. This could include everything from throwing a bunch of leftover snack-sized candy bars into your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe or creating some elaborately decorated cakes.
