After having dinner at a steakhouse last week, we decided to share dessert. Todd wanted Key lime pie and I wanted cheesecake.  Fuzz’s job was to break the tie, but since she was indifferent we settled on cheesecake so long as I promised to make a Key lime pie later in the week. This dessert […]

Chiffon Cake

Have you ever baked a cake so popular everybody wanted the recipe?  According to what I’ve read, that’s how the Chiffon Cake came to be.  Created in 1927 by Harry Baker, an insurance salesman from California who had a baking hobby, the cake was so moist and airy that Baker was asked to serve it […]

Covered with her famous seven minute icing, she’d serve it with peppermint ice cream for the ultimate combination of temperatures and textures.

angel food cake

Happy Martin Luther King Day! To celebrate, I’ve been making some of our favorite southern foods, including angel food cake. We love angel food cake, but I don’t make it often enough. Part of the reason is I never know what to do with the 12 leftover egg yolks, and the other part is that […]

strawberry bavarian

Today’s dessert was inspired by the Angel Strawberry Bavarian I found on the Duncan Hines website. It’s an angel food cake  broken up and suspended in a matrix of strawberry flavored cream, and I say “inspired” because while I’d intended to make the actual recipe, I ran into a few obstacles. The recipe starts with […]
