Cherry Chocolate Cake

So all that talk about extract was leading up to this cake. The original version was on the back of a Watkins cherry extract box, and since Todd loves anything chocolate-cherry, I knew this cake was in our future. The original cake was double this and baked in a standard size Bundt pan. I’m glad […]

chocolate cranberry cake

This may be the best little chocolate cake in the world; or at least under certain conditions. Condition one being there’s half a can of cranberry sauce you need to use and condition two, you want chocolate cake, but hardly feel like baking. This recipe is all that and more.

Birthday Cake

For her birthday, Fuzz requested a marble cake with chocolate icing and an assortment of decorating items so that she could decorate it herself. I think she did the job quickly because she’d spent a whole day at Six Flags and was ready to cut the cake and eat it. Happy Birthday Fuzz! The recipe […]

Scratch Irish Cream Cake

The ingredients list seems long, but it’s mostly basic pantry items and the cake itself is a “stir-and-bake” variation on Black Magic Cake.

Chocolate Cake

My mom’s birthday always falls near Thanksgiving which means our feast includes birthday cake. This year, because the recipe caught my eye and because I was baking a cake for my mother, I chose to make Mom’s Chocolate Cake from the current issue of Food & Wine. It’s by Marcia Kiesel who got it from her friend Joyce Cole. Joyce Cole got it from her mot

Chocolate Espresso Torte

As much as I love to bake, there are days when I just don’t feel like doing the work. When pulling out the ingredients seems too bothersome and not one recipe in a stack of cookbooks seems worth the trouble. Just when I thought yesterday was going to be one of those days, I found […]
