Chocoflan Recipe

Opposites do attract, and in epic dessert fashion! Discover the charm of Chocoflan – a masterful union of fudgy chocolate cake and creamy vanilla custard. That little machine that makes chocolate and vanilla swirled ice cream might just be my favorite invention (second to air conditioning, of course). Why spend precious time at the counter pondering the age-old question of “chocolate or vanilla” when you can have both? “Both” (or “one of everything”) is,  after all, my dining philosophy, and it’s one of the reasons I love to make this Chocoflan. In one unassuming Bundt pan, you’ll construct the...

Hummingbird Cake

Skip the boring banana bread and breathe new life into that overripe fruit with this tropical Hummingbird Cake recipe.  The Caribbean is calling, and this cake is the next best thing! “If you build it, they will come,” has worked exactly (at least) two times in history: once in a Kevin Costner movie and once for the tourism board of Jamaica.

There’s practically a national month or day for all your favorite treats: National Chocolate Mousse Day in April, National Hot...

Kentucky Butter Cake

This unique Kentucky Butter Cake is tender, moist and deliciously unique. The cake is soaked with a wonderful Butter Sauce then topped in an amazing Butter Glaze. I love baking cakes, and I love sharing my cakes with friends and relatives and, sometimes, total strangers. But not everyone feels the same way I do about heating up the oven and whipping up a yummy, homemade cake from scratch. I know lots of folks who cook all the time, but tend to shy away from baking cakes from scratch because they do not feel they can do better than a...

Coconut Sheet Cake

Incredibly delicious, super moist, Coconut Sheet Cake topped with a perfect Coconut frosting. As any good potlucker knows, you can’t just bring any dessert to a potluck. There’s a trick finding the right recipe, a balance that has to be just right. You want something that can easily be made into a large batch. But you also want something that will be popular enough (read: delicious enough) that you don’t take a bunch home. (The last thing I need in my life is to bring home two pans of brownies.) Today’s recipe is a perfect fit. This coconut sheet...
