The first time I made this cake was for a pot luck. As my husband & I stood near the cake table, we overheard two women say, “Have you seen that coconut cake? Everyone says it is delicious!” This cake is lush & delicious, and pot luck approved!
If you love chocolate this is your pie! Decadently delicious and you won’t be able to stop at one slice. I must warn you, this thing is large, as it is made in a 9 inch pie plate. You can also make mini pies and all you have to do is adjust the baking time.
If you’re a fan of apples and pumpkin this is your pie! I used pecans in the streusel and pre-made pie crust. It’s perfect for all your fall celebrations! I also solved the problem of the soggy bottom you often get with an apple pie. A little 10-minute pre-bake did the trick.
My mom always called this prune cake, but since I made this with plums I’m calling it plum cake. It’s a simple recipe and so delicious. More importantly, it reminds me of my mom. My family really loves this cake. It’s not too sweet and is perfect for this stone fruit.
I was super excited to try Amoretti Artisan Natural Flavors & wow are they good! The mango flavor has such an elegant aroma & tastes like sun ripened mangos exactly! The vanilla cupcakes are made with Amoretti Almond Flour, honey & coconut oil. The mango buttercream icing was the perfect compliment & tastes like paradise. There is no way you could get this kind of flavor with generic extracts or flavors. This product is all natural & seriously dense: 2 oz = 24 oz of fruit purée. I’m hooked!
I have been making this recipe for years. Got it from my mom, who used to make a lot of strawberry desserts. This cake is quite easy – you just mix it up and put it in your baking pan. As easy as it is, I think it is very fancy looking. It for sure tastes good – my husband asks for it often. Very moist, not too sweet. He even asks for it for Thanksgiving. Go figure!
Coffee cakes are so versatile and show off seasonal fruit so nicely. This one is full of raspberries and is made extra moist with the addition of ricotta. Enjoy!
This cake is a family fav and so worth the trouble. It’s got two steps, but otherwise is very straight forward. It feeds a lot of people, mostly because it is quite rich. A small portion goes a long way!
This is my rendition of Boston Cream Pie. It was first created for the grand opening of Boston’s Parker House, now known as the Omni Parker House. As you can see it’s not a pie. It’s a vanilla cake filled with pastry cream and topped with chocolate ganache. At the Omni they spread some of the pastry cream on the sides and press almonds onto it. My hubs loves this dessert, so he usually gets it for his birthday or Father’s Day. Enjoy!
My mom used to have her friends over all the time for a “kaffeeklatsch” and she would serve all kinds of coffee cake. This is one of my favs. It’s moist and bursting with blueberries. Enjoy! (Tap the picture to head to the recipe!)
