Coconut Mist Cake

It’s the end of the month, I’m low on ingredients, and haven’t been feeling particularly inspired in the baking department. I almost baked yet another batch of brownies, but then along came this recipe! It’s an old one from Baker’s coconut, and I loved that it seemed to be designed for the everyday baker interested […]

Orange Creamsicle Cake

As part of the Pillsbury Baking giveaway I posted a few days ago, Pillsbury sent me a few boxes of their new cake mixes to experiment with.  This cake (along with the White Chocolate Cheesecake Key Lime Bundt Cake) was one of the experiments. I wanted to see how using a popular technique for extending […]

Coconut Cake

This cake was inspired by a brand of cream of coconut I just discovered called Coco Real. Unlike the canned cream of coconut I usually buy, Coco Real comes in a 21 ounce squeeze bottle and cost less than $3.00. The convenience of being able to use small amounts plus the price reeled me in, […]

Today’s cute little coconut cake is the first the item I’ve tried  from The Cake Cook Book — the one I bought at Bonnie Slotnick’s shop in New York. It’s by some ladies who really know how to have fun. And the great thing is it’s still for sale on Amazon with prices ranging from […]

Mexican Vanilla Pineapple Pound Cake

Mexican Vanilla

I like the idea of Mexican vanilla, but the only time I can really taste a difference is when I eat Amy’s Mexican Vanilla ice cream. Whatever she uses is the best (in my opinion), and Amy’s Mexican vanilla is what inspired this recipe. Of course, not knowing what brand Amy uses, I just …

White Mountain Coconut Cupcakes

Yeas ago I clipped some cupcake recipes from Chocolatier Magazine. Yesterday I was going through stuff and found this one, which was fortunate since I’d been craving coconut cupcakes all week and hadn’t settled on a recipe. I’d had my eye on Ina Garten’s, but decided to go with Chocolatier’s since it called for cake […]
