- Pumpkin roll cakes are a staple at many Thanksgiving celebrations. They are sponge cakes, leavened primarily with egg whites and held together with a little bit of flour. Bell’alimento baked a Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll, so no one will have to miss out on a delicious dessert because of dietary restrictions. The traditional cake is filled with cream cheese frosting, but this one is even more decadent. It is filled with a Mascarpone and Nutella Filling, which is rich and creamy, with a hint of chocolate.
- If sweet potato casserole isn’t your thing, but you do like sweet potatoes, you might want to try The Cookin’ Canuck‘s Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Chipotle Pecan Streusel. This side dish is easy to make and impressive to look at, with a great combination of sweet and spicy elements – and it’s a great change of pace from more traditional recipes. And if you want to have some more spice on the side, bake a double or triple batch of the chipotle pecans and serve those in a bowl where you and your guests can munch on them, even without the sweet potatoes.
- What could be better than a chocolate layer cake? How about a Chocolate Layer Cake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting and Baked White Chocolate Cake Doughnuts, like the delicious looking cake that La Mia Vita Dolce made. This cake is possibly the ultimate party cake. It has a great combination of flavors and the cake is garnished with lots of miniature donuts! It has a real wow factor and each slice is like getting two desserts in one.
- The buttery Brown Sugar Bundt Cake with Maple Espresso Glaze from Dunk Twice is a great way to end (heck, or to start!) a meal. The cake is made with butter, buttermilk and brown sugar and is loaded with chocolate chips. It is drizzled with a glaze spiked with a little bit of maple syrup and a little bit of espresso. It’s a great combination that makes the bundt cake seem a lot more complex. Plus, it also helps the cake go very well with a big cup of coffee.
- Hedonia‘s Wake and Bake doesn’t even need a recipe. This easy to make dish uses leftover pizza dough, is topped with any kind of vegetables – from roasted squash to caramelized onions to slightly wilted spinach – and a bit of cheese, then slid into the oven to bake. Before it is done, you crack a couple of eggs on top and slide it back into the oven to cook them through. It’s a low fuss breakfast that ends up looking like something you’d find in a higher end brunch spot, and it is also a great way to use up leftovers.
