  • I love turnovers and hand pies. The pastry are simply delicious and the fact that they are so easy to make allows you to come up with all kinds of creative fillings, both sweet and savory. Port & Fin‘s Peach, Ginger & Goat Cheese Turnovers combine sweet peach jam, fresh ginger and creamy goat cheese in pockets of buttery puff pastry. The turnovers are fantastic for snacking, but they’re also an outstanding choice for entertaining, as they can be made in just about any size you might want to serve.
  • Do you like Cadbury Creme Eggs? If so, the Cadbury Creme Filled Donuts from Homemade Hooplah will help you get your fix long after Easter is over. The baked yeast donuts are filled with a homemade fondant that is remarkably similar to the filling found in a store-bought creme egg and is even colored to look like the two-tone fondant “yolks.” The donuts are topped with a chocolate ganache glaze, which doesn’t provide quite the same chocolate-to-filling ratio as the traditional eggs, but it does pair perfectly with a cream filled donut.
  • Lemon and poppyseeds are a classic combination, but lemons aren’t the only citrus that works well with those little black seeds. Words of Deliciousness put together an Orange Poppyseed Bundt Cake that is a nice change of pace from a lemon cake. The batter is flavored with both fresh orange juice and zest and the cake is generously drizzled with an orange syrup after baking to ensure that it has plenty of sweet citrus flavor. The poppyseeds give the cake a pretty speckled look and add a hint of crunch to the tender crumb.
  • If you enjoy rocky road, you’ll probably want to try your hand at the Rocky Road Profiteroles that The Baker Mama baked up recently. The recipe starts with chocolate choux paste, which is baked into fluffy pastry puffs and filled with generous scoops of rocky road ice cream. You could stop there – but you can take this dessert over-the-top by drizzling each profiterole with gooey marshmallow cream and rich chocolate sauce. Serve these as a decadent treat at your next dinner party.
  • Recipe Throwback: Tomato soup probably isn’t high on your list of must-have cupcake ingredients, but you just might be surprised to discover how delicious these Chocolate Spice Tomato Soup Cupcakes can be! The cupcakes are moist, flavorful and chocolaty, with that rich chocolate accented by cinnamon and cloves. You’ll never guess that there is tomato soup inside – or how much depth of flavor it adds! The decadent chocolate sour cream frosting is one of my favorites, too.
