Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake

Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake

It’s nice to have a cake around the house. It’s nice to have something to slice and serve when the neighbors come over for coffee or when family drops in, but it’s equally nice to have a little something to treat yourself with when you’re at home and looking for a snack. I tend to think that a good, moist bundt cake or tube cake ... Read More »

Chocolate Pomegranate Bundt Cake

Pomegranates are packed with antioxidants, which means that there are a lot of potential health benefits packed into each fruit. Pomegranates are a bit difficult to eat, since each little seed – although tasty – doesn’t have a lot of juice or flesh surrounding it, so it takes quite a while to consume one. This is where pomegranate juice comes in, making it easy to ... Read More »

Deep Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry Mousse Heart

Deep Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry Mousse Heart

When I saw Wilton’s Tasty Fill Heart Cake Set, I knew that I wanted to try making one of the lovely heart-centered cakes myself. A cake with a heart-shaped center is perfect Valentine’s Day. After I picked up the cake pan set, all I needed to do was decide what flavor cake I wanted to make. I decided to work backwards and, knowing that I ... Read More »

Coca-Cola Cake

Coca-Cola Cake, the sheet cake

I was recently watching a documentary on the history of the Coca-Cola company and it got me thinking about whether I could use Coke in baking. I’ve used sodas, like root beer, before in barbecue sauces, but would the flavor of the soda come through in a cake or other baked good? I didn’t have to wonder for long because it turns out that there ... Read More »

Cranberry Orange Pudding Cake

Cranberry Orange Pudding Cake

Pudding cake will always be one of my favorite cool-weather desserts. As good as it is all year round, you can’t beat the warmth of a sticky, gooey pudding cake fresh from the oven on a winter evening. Chocolate pudding cakes are tough to beat, but I’m a big fan of citrus pudding cakes as well. Lemon, lime and orange all get top marks from me when citrus is in ... Read More »

Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake

Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake

One of the things that I look forward to in the winter is meyer lemon season. Meyer lemons are hybrid fruits, a cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon that has all the flavor of the lemon without the acidity. They’re really easy to work with and make for a nice change in recipes. In this Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake, for instance, there is ... Read More »

Candy Cane Angel Food Cake

Candy Cane Angel Food Cake

I got my first glimpse of this cake on the cover of Sunset Magazine about three years ago. With crushed peppermints enveloping the entire cake, it was quite a sight to behold – and so festive for the holiday season! I saved the picture and have been meaning to make it ever since. With my surplus of candy canes this year, I knew it had ... Read More »
