Peach and Strawberry Cobbler

Peach and Strawberry Cobbler

I like to think of this Peach and Strawberry Cobbler as my end-of-summer cobbler. This particular batch of cobbler was baked with beautiful fresh strawberries and a mix of perfectly ripe yellow and white peaches. The strawberries are probably some of the last top-notch berries I’ll get this season – hence the end-of-summer feeling to the dessert. It also helps that the colors in the ... Read More »

Blueberry Pudding Cake

Blueberry Pudding Cake

A pudding cake is a type of cake that separates into layers when it is baked, resulting in a fluffy cake layer on top of a thick, pudding-like layer. Chocolate pudding cake is a classic example, but pudding cake can come in a whole variety of flavors and can even be made with fresh fruit. In fact, a fruity pudding cake can be even better ...

Tropical Strawberry Guava Shortcakes

Tropical Strawberry Guava Shortcakes

Strawberry shortcakes are one of my favorite summertime desserts because I just can’t get enough fresh strawberries when they’re in season. I typically chop them up and add them to a shortcake whole, with just a little bit of whipped cream to dress them up. This time I did something a little bit different and added a tropical guava-spiked syrup to the filling. This made ... Read More »

Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cobbler

Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cobbler

When I make Snickerdoodles, or other snickerdoodle-inspired baked goods, I often have leftover cinnamon-sugar mix leftover that I don’t have much use for. Typically, I keep it in a small bowl or plastic bag on the counter and use it up by sprinkling it on a bowl of oatmeal or on top of other baked goods (and sometimes I just make another batch of snickerdoodles!) ...

Plum Clafoutis

Plum Clafoutis

Baking with plums is wonderful, not just because plums are so tasty, but because plums are a beautiful color and make for some of the most incredible looking desserts you’ll come across. The flesh of most plums is a reddish yellow color. Most of the coloring of the fruit comes from the skin, so I tend to leave it on when I bake with them. ... Read More »

Breton Apple Cake

Apple Cake

Most recipes tell you what a particular dish is – vanilla cake, chocolate chip cookies, etc – but some also give you a little more information by telling you about where that recipe is from. A New York-Style Cheesecake is a great example of this, and this dense and creamy type of cheesecake is instantly recognizable. Some recipes, however, are associated with different places and ...

Blueberry and Blood Orange Crisps

Blueberry Orange Crisp

Citrus is often used as a flavoring for desserts from scones to cakes, but pieces of orange and lemon don’t always make it into the finished product. Frankly, you wouldn’t want to have big pieces of orange or lemon floating around in all of your recipes, but they do deserve the chance to take more of a starring role once in a while. With ripe ...

Apple Cider Pudding Cake

Apple Cider Pudding Cake, served

When I think about pudding cakes, I picture a dessert that forms a pudding-like sauce at the bottom of the pan during baking. Chocolate pudding cake and lemon pudding cake are to of my very favorite recipes of this type. Throw some fruit into the mix and you have something that is a little closer to a cobbler than to one of those pudding cake ... Read More »
