- Caramel and apples is a fantastic combination, whether you’re using both elements in a cake or dipping apples into caramel sauce to make Cinnamon Caramel Apple Pumpkins, as Bakingdom did recently. These sweet apples are dipped in homemade caramel that has been spiked with cinnamon for a little extra flavor. A few strands of licorice attached to the caramel make the apples look like pumpkins, perfect for any fall occasion. Of course, you can dip those caramel covered apples in just about any topping of your choosing, too.
- I can’t remember the last time I had strudel, but Peppercorns in my Pocket‘s post about Cheese & Apple Strudel is certainly putting me in the mood for a slice. This strudel is made with oh-so-flaky filo dough that is wrapped around a rich center of cream cheese, apples and walnuts. It is the perfect blend of crisp, crunchy and creamy in a dish that can be served for breakfast or for dessert. And it is a good excuse to use up some of the filo dough lurking in the back of the freezer!
- I was very impressed with the Mini Yellow Birthday Cake that Panini Happy baked recently. The cake itself is cute, a two layer cake that puts all of that birthday spirit into a single serving, but what I was really impressed with was the fact that the cake was baked in two ramekins on a panini press, rather than in an oven! This is a great example of making a kitchen appliance multitask and should provide some great inspiration to those of us panini press owners looking for an excuse to pull it out more often.
- Tiramisu is a dessert that is easy to infuse with many different flavors, as its creamy base is often just asking to be spiked with chocolate or Kahlua. Peanut Butter and Jelly Tiramisu sounds like a slightly less sophisticated twist on the Italian dessert, but Heat Oven to 350 will tell you that it is worth every bite. The creamy dessert has a peanut butter and cream cheese filling that separates layers of raspberry-kissed ladyfingers. Whole, fresh raspberries complete the dessert
