Applesauce Brownies

Applesauce Brownies

I bake brownies all the time because they are such a crowd pleaser, but every time that I bake a batch, someone will tell me that they just have to pass on something so rich. Brownies are known for being decadent and delivering a big dose of chocolate in every bite. As much as people love chocolate, it is understandable that you may not want ... Read More »

Blueberry Buttermilk Clafoutis

Blueberry Buttermilk Clafoutis

Clafoutis are always a nice way to showcase fresh fruit in a dessert that is elegant, but easy to make. The custardy french dessert can be made with just about any kind of fruit, although it is traditionally made with cherries. I do like a cherry clafoutis, but I often save my cherries for pies, so I am much more likely to showcase other fruits ... Read More »

Crustless Raspberry Custard Pie

Crustless Raspberry Custard Pie

This Crustless Raspberry Custard Pie is not your typical custard pie. It is baked directly in a pie plate without a pastry or graham cracker crust beneath it, yet it still holds together well enough that you can easily slice and serve it, just as you would with a regular pie. The pie is creamy and tender, with more substance than you might expect a ... Read More »

It comes in full fat, low fat and fat free varieties. Most recipes simply call for sweetened condensed milk and are usually designed to work with the full fat ... Read More »

Mocha Bundt Cake with Coffee Glaze

Mocha Bundt with Coffee Glaze

Streusel-topped coffee cake gets its name because it is the perfect thing to serve with a hot cup of coffee at brunch or as an afternoon snack, not because it is coffee-flavored. In fact, most coffee cakes have no coffee in them at all – a fact which throws people for a loop sometimes when they actually go in search of a cake that has ... Read More »

Fresh Strawberry Souffles

Strawberry Souffle innards

There are plenty of ways to enjoy fresh summer strawberries. You can stuff them into a shortcake or pile them up into a pie, as well as add them to cereal and toss them into a salad. Shortcakes are probably my favorite strawberry dessert, but I’ve recently added a new recipe to my list of strawberry dessert options: a strawberry souffle. This light, fluffy Strawberry ...

Balsamic Vinegar Fudge Cookies

Vanilla Balsamic

Vinegar pops up in some baked goods as a quick and easy way to add an acid to a recipe, allowing a leavening agent like baking soda to get a little extra lift when added to a batter. Vinegar is rarely used as a flavoring agent and in the recipes that call for it, you can almost never taste it in the finished product. These ... Read More »
