Voskos Greek Yogurt Pound Cake

by on October 3, 2012 · 6 comments


I have another Voskos Greek Yogurt recipe to share.  It’s for a simple pound cake that can be made without an electric mixer! Using vegetable oil in place of butter lets you skip the creaming, and adding lemon, vanilla and spices ensures there’s plenty of flavor.  The texture is dense but very tender (thanks to […]

Lemon Twist Oreos

You know that feeling you get when you’re in a public place and you spot a celebrity?  At first your brain is like “OMG!  It’s the woman from Modern Family” or “No way!  It’s that guitarist I haven’t seen since 1996 and here he is at the H.E.B.!”  and then you try not to stare […]

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 […]

old bake-off book

I love going through old Bake-Off books and looking at entries from years gone by. It’s always interesting to see what recipes become famous and which ones fly under the radar; for instance, this one from the 1969 Bake-Off in Atlanta. It’s a whipping cream pound cake made with sesame seeds toasted in butter. It’s […]

vanilla pound cake

Hello, and thanks for all the well wishes! It’s been a long week. I headed back to the kitchen yesterday, but my appetite had changed a bit and my usual rich, gooey, chocolate cravings were on the down low. What did sound good was a plain vanilla pound cake, and the King Arthur Flour Whole […]

Citrus Almond Pound Cake

by on August 24, 2010 · 19 comments


When I saw this recipe in Mark Bittman’s NYT column, I knew I’d have to try it immediately. Not only is the cake made in the food processor, which in past experience has yielded a dense, tender, moist and tight crumbed cake, but it uses for almond paste. Looking at the recipe and reading reviews, I […]

Neapolitan Bundt Cake

by on April 19, 2010 · 9 comments


I’m bumping this old recipe up for my friend Shirley because it’s a Neapolitan Bundt Cake kind of day. It’s surprisingly good I believe this is an old Bake-Off recipe, but am still researching to find out whether that is true.  Update:  The size of cake mix has been reduced, therefore this recipe probably needs […]

Lemon Loaf

lemon loaf cut

I couldn’t resist! Here it is, the Lemon Loaf Cake from Baking with Julia. I altered one step. Instead of adding the lemon zest to the batter, I mixed it in with the sugar and crushed it around a bit so that the sugar became lemony and fragrant. I’m not sure if it really made […]
