Marbled Mini Bundt Pan Cake

Marbled Bundt Cake

Today’s recipe is for people in my secret club. It’s called “The Club for People With 6 inch Bundt Pans”. If you’re not in the club, it’s probably because you like big Bundts and that’s perfectly okay. But for a small family or someone who likes baking multiple cakes, a 6 inch Bundt pan is […]

Three Layer Chocolate Cake

It’s been a while since I posted a chocolate layer cake, but I promise you this recipe will make up for lost time. It’s our new favorite. At first I wasn’t sure this cake would be worth the time given the array of ingredients (two kinds of flour, both chocolate and cocoa) and the fact […]

Chocolate Pound Cake

Chocolate Pound Cake

Today’s cake was an excuse to use some of the cocoa powder I bought last week at Costco. Next time you’re warehouse shopping, check the baking aisle because you may get lucky and find the 24 oz cans of Rodelle unsweetened cocoa powder for about $7.00. That’s a good price for just about any cocoa […]

Earthquake Cake

I can’t believe it took me so long to try this recipe; and hopefully in years to come I’ll be serving it at potlucks, teacher appreciation events and Girl Scout meetings to make up for lost time. For now, I’m just glad I have a small “Earthquake Cake” to serve tonight. So what is Earthquake […]

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

In case you missed the news, yesterday was not only National Baking Day, but National Devil’s Food Cake Day.  And while I admit to not taking full advantage of the excuse to make a devil’s food cake, I made another type of chocolate cake which was just as good — a mayonnaise cake. If you’ve […]

Enhanced Cake Mix Marble Cake

Marble Cake

One of my favorite scratch marble cakes is this Triple Layer Mocha Marble Cake, but last week I had to pull something together quickly for a Girl Scout pot luck and felt like using cake mix. Since I’d had good luck with the enhanced Orangesicle cake, I decided to push that luck a bit by […]

Hershey Bar Bundt Cake

This may not be your typical Easter cake,  but it is the perfect post-Easter cake because you can make it with leftover milk chocolate eggs or chopped up chocolate bunnies!  Or you could just do it the old fashioned way and use actual Hershey bars.  Whatever type of milk chocolate you use, the result is […]

Happy Friday! And to celebrate, here’s a wacky but very tasty cake. It’s called ‘Tato Cake (though my relatives would have called it ‘Tater Cake) and it’s a chocolate Bundt cake made with Hungry Jack mashed potato flakes.  You can’t taste the potatoes in the cake, but they add bulk and give the cake a […]
