Fig & Walnut Loaf Cake

Fig Cake

Today’s recipe is from The Triangle News and Observer.  It’s a fig cake, but instead of actual figs it gets its flavor and texture from fig preserves.  I had about 3/4 of a bottle of fig preserves leftover from another little cooking project, and since there are very few other places I use fig preserves, […]

Sour Cream Carrot Cake

Fuzz had a wonderful birthday catered by a local Mexican food place here in town. Things couldn’t have gone any better, but they did! The caterers gave us way too much sour cream, so after the party I had load of it to use in cakes, muffins, whatever. This carrot cake was the result. It’s […]

Dr Pepper Cupcake

I found some Dr Pepper hanging out in the refrigerator and decided to try something new. Or sort of new. This is a cupcake version of the old Dr Pepper cake. Unlike the layer cake, this one has a caramel flavored cream filling. You can leave it out if it seems like too much work, but […]

Neapolitan Cake From Scratch

I’ve been super busy so it took me a while to get around to it, but here’s the scratch version of Neapolitan Layer Cake. We loved it! The boxed cake mix version was good, but it was fun putting together this one with flour sugar and butter. For the chocolate layer, I used the most […]

Neapolitan Cake

To celebrate Fuzz’s 13th birthday, I made the famous “Neapolitan Cake” which has a layer of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.  Truth  be told, Fuzz wanted nothing to do with this cake because she can’t stand strawberry cake mix, but her friends thought it was neat.  I did too, but I like anything Neapolitan because I associate […]

Yellow Cupcake

This is my current favorite yellow cupcake, but today I tried a recipe that gave it a run for its money. It’s Stef’s Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake, which she makes with a fresh vanilla bean. I didn’t have any vanilla beans today, but I did have a few bottles of McCormick Vanilla Butter & Nut Extract […]

Fruit and Cream Tunnel Cake

Fruit and Cream Cake

When my adventures in Basque cake making were over, I had some pastry cream left and felt like experimenting.  Just for fun, I spooned a line of pastry cream down the center of some blueberry loaf cake batter, covered it with more batter and baked it.  The results weren’t impressive at first. The tunnel of […]

Impossible Cheesecake Pie

Impossible Cheesecake Pie

One of the first things I learned to make as a child was “Impossible Pie”, a dish named for the transformation that occurs as it bakes: Ingredients are spread in a pie plate, a mixture of biscuit mix, eggs and milk is poured over the top, then it goes in the oven where the mixture […]
