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 […]

Chocolate Cake

I’ve been trying various recipes from Hungry Jack, and this is one of them. It’s an easy to prepare chocolate cake baked in an 8 inch square metal pan and topped with chocolate mousse made with melted chocolate, a little bit of syrup, and freshly whipped cream. The cake part of the recipe was pretty […]

Sauerkraut Cake

One of the best things about leaving home for college was this:  I’d never have to look, smell or taste sauerkraut again.  Blech!  Okay, that was an overstatement, but I have some pretty bad memories of my mom spooning it out of a can, warming it in the microwave and serving it as a side […]

Double Fudge Fancifill Cake

My mom didn’t enjoy baking, but occasionally she’d find a recipe so tempting it would lure her to the kitchen. One of those recipe was the “Double Fudge Fancifull Cake”, a plain chocolate cake with a ribbon of cheesecake running through the center. I vaguely remember the cake from childhood and am thinking my mom […]

Triple Layer Mocha Marble Cake

Marble Cake

If you like marble cake and want to make it completely from scratch, here’s a good recipe. I created it by combining two of my favorite scratch cake recipes, a homemade mocha frosting (used as filling) and a new chocolate frosting which is now my favorite. So if you don’t make the cake, at least […]
