Red Velvet Cake

Today’s cake was inspired by one I saw at The Eleven City Diner in Chicago’s Lincoln Park. Todd and I had lunch there this week, and while we were too full to order dessert, I admired their red velvet cake from afar and made a note to bake one as soon as I got home.  […]

Coconut Cupcakes

In my never-ending quest to find tasty and interesting fats for baking, I bought a carton of Earth Balance Coconut Spread and used it in coconut cupcakes. Not that there’s anything healthy about these guys, but I’m trying to find alternatives to shortening and until I remember to go pick up some leaf lard at […]

Carrot Cake

I don’t know which was more fun — making this carrot cake from Allrecipes or reading the reviews. Out of hundreds of reviewers, I think only a handful of people made the cake as directed, while other bakers modified it, with the most popular modification being to substitute a cup of the granulated sugar with […]

Marble Cake

Let’s see. Chocolate cake or yellow cake or both? That’s an easy decision! And it’s why I love marble cake. You get two flavors in one. What’s strange is how seldom marble cake shows up on the dessert table these days. Or maybe it’s just not trendy in Austin? I’m not sure, but it’s always […]

Potluck Cola Cake

Coca Cola

I’m still working my way through the Coca Cola my sister-in-law left behind. Too bad she’s not here, because this was a big cake and we’re having to eat it all by ourselves.  Luckily cola cakes freeze well, so after the cake cooled I cut it into big squares, wrapped it tightly in plastic and […]

Piece of Carrot Cake

If you need an excuse to bake a carrot cake, this carrot cake needs you! The tasting panel chose it in a side-by-side comparison to another recipe, but I’d like to hear from another baker. The recipe appears similar to other carrot cakes, but the texture is tight crumbed and light and the cake is […]

Polka-dot-cake

UPDATE:  This giveaway has ended. For the past week I’ve enjoyed sampling Pillsbury® Bold Funfetti® mixes and frosting. At first I was a little skeptical, but when I started using the products I fell in love with the range of colors and potential for making creative treats like my new favorite — the Polka Dot […]

Lemon Pound Cake Made With Cake Mix

by on April 5, 2014 · 6 comments

Lemon Pound Cake

Today’s recipe is for an easy lemon pound cake using a pouch of Pillsbury Neon Yellow Funfetti cake mix. The original flavor of the mix is vanilla, but adding some lemon, lemon oil, butter, lemon instant pudding and cream cheese gave it a great lemon flavor and a soft, dense, pound cake texture that improves […]
