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. It may be hard for those of us who dream of Montego Bay beaches to imagine, but in the 1970s it wasn’t exactly a tourist hotspot. In an attempt to bring more flights and full wallets in from...

Peanut Butter Pie

My Ultimate Peanut Butter Pie! A luscious, creamy peanut butter filling nestles on top of a rich, unique peanut butter ganache, all cradled in a peanut butter cookie crust. Peanut Butter heaven! Every spring – as the baking, burning, scorching heat of summer approaches – I go through all of my recipes for chilled pie. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love hot pastry pie.

It’s very tender and moist and I find it to actually be a bit lighter in texture than many cakes of its type. Red Velvet Cake Recipe Notes: This is one of the few recipes I actually lug out my sifter and use it. I think...

Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

  Here’s a recipe for simple, homey banana cake that I absolutely love! This cake is so delicious that the first time I made it, I couldn’t even get a photograph of it. My family ate it so quickly that it didn’t even get served on plates….it was devoured straight out of the pan! What a bunch of barbarians! But hey, I guess, they’re my barbarians…..LOL.   This cake is moist, deliciously tender and fairly fluffy. It’s obviously much lighter than a typical heavy banana bread, but not as light as, say, a chiffon cake. I think the photo gives...
