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

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 […]

Basque Cake

Up until last week I’d never heard of Basque cake, but someone brought it to my attention and I have become a little obsessed. For those of you unfamiliar with “gateau Basque”, it is a Basque pastry comprised of a round, thick, dense cake encasing a filling that is usually made with fresh preserves, pastry […]

Mini Key Lime Flavored Cheesecakes

Key Lime Cheesecake

We’re back from a little vacation to Fort Worth and Chicago — odd combination of destinations which involved picking Fuzz up from camp at TCU, then heading on to Chicago for some family fun. We walked all over the place, tried some new restaurants and saw a show at the Second City.  It was a […]

No-Egg Chocolate Cake

Today we tried a new chocolate cake recipe. Like the Depression era Wacky Cake, this one is made without eggs or butter.  But unlike Wacky Cake, this recipe calls for buttermilk plus a lot more cocoa powder, which gives the cake a deeper chocolate flavor. You can frost it with your favorite frosting, but we […]
