A Less Sweet Carrot Cake

by on November 26, 2013 · 3 comments


If you love carrot cake but lean towards the less sweet versions, here’s one I recommend. Baked in a 9 inch pan, it’s a smaller cake; and proportionately, it has a bit less sugar than some of the most popular recipes. This cake also has a lot of add-ins including coconut, nuts and pineapple which […]

Football Cake Pops

Football Cake Pops

I’m hopeless when it comes to decorating, but this morning a friend came over and together we made some cute football shaped cake pops. These were for our local Pop Warner team, but I am looking forward to making them again when Super Bowl rolls around. My only complaint is that to make football shaped […]

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 […]

Grilled Pound Cake

The picture is what lured me into trying this recipe. Not my picture. My photo looks like this. It was this photo of a cake with such a smooth, even, brown looking crust that got me. It appears to be as smooth as a Sara Lee crust, and what happened to the edges? I guess […]

Elvis Presley

Have you ever divided a tube pan sized pound cake recipe between two loaf pans, and then been disappointed to find your two loaf cakes had very flat tops? This has happened to me many times, including when I made the half size, loaf shaped version of Elvis Presley’s Favorite Pound Cake. The texture is […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I found this recipe today while having my morning coffee and reading about the melting properties of shortening. It was on Crisco Canada, but what drew me in wasn’t the shortening (I used oil), but the pancake mix. I’ve made plenty of scratch sour cream coffee cakes, but was curious to see how a pancake […]

Perfect Pound Cake

I’ve made a lot of pound cakes, and while this one isn’t the densest and heaviest, it’s one of my favorites. It’s tight crumbed, slices neatly, and is light textured even even though it has a high ratio of butter to flour and sugar. Some people describe this pound cake as similar to the one […]

Good things come to those who wait, and sometimes to those who procrastinate. I finally got around to ordering some McCormick Vanilla Butter & Nut Extract and wish I’d done it sooner. It definitely lived up to my expectations, which had been set pretty high thanks to glowing reviews from people who said it was […]
