RED VELVET CAKE Hello, Beautiful! Sometimes being bad is really very good…and with this cake, on a special Valentine’s Day (with someone or alone!) it’s even better. I’ve cut the original recipe in half to give you a single layer, but split it and stacked the gorgeousness into an impressive little number that will get…

A Holiday beauty!

CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT CAKE ROLL Chocolate and cake in the same dessert is wonderful.  Add in some cool, wintery peppermint-laced cream filling and let’s just swoon and get it over with, shall we?! So pretty! Your holiday table will love you for the effort you put forth to make this.  (And it’s not hard – don’t…

Holiday Gorgeousness!

PUMPKIN ROLL This is my version of the famous orange-label recipe.  It’s low-sugar, completely moist and spicy.  I took out the butter from the filling and added whipped cream.  It’s easier than it looks and always gets rave reviews. (Don’t be scared of a cake roll.  Even if it cracks or breaks it still tastes…

WHAT’S in that cake?!

FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE When I saw this recipe I was very skeptical…usually these kind leave a LOT to be desired. But this is one moist and delicious dessert!  And unless you told someone they would never, in a million years, guess what the secret ingredient was. It’s very flavorful and rises well…not eggy or too…

35-Second Lemon Cake in a cup…

(not my photo…from the web) 35-SECOND LEMON CAKE The chocolate version of this was such a hit that I started making other flavors.  Hon’s very favorite – so far – is the lemon using the regular extract from any supermarket. But to make other flavors, I love the LorAnn candy making oils.  They are super…

Make your chocolate healthier – add Zucchini!!

Mi Amore!

CASSATA CAKE What a lovely way to end a meal! An Italian dessert full of sweet ricotta cream between layers of light sponge cake soaked, in this case, in sugar free raspberry syrup.  So glorious! I’ve seen them un-iced, or completely covered with cream – either way it’s a wonderful thing.  Don’t be discouraged with…

Splendid satisfaction in 35 seconds!

35-SECOND CHOCOLATE CAKE Now here’s a sweet little sweetie that you can mix and cook in the cup and in – alright maybe 1 1/2 minutes tops – you’ll have a cute little cutie for a guilt free snack.  (But it’s only 35 seconds in the microwave…so there!)  Soooo good, for so not a lot…

Dark, dark chocolate…my favorite cake (this week!)

MOCHA CAKE This is always requested for birthdays, potlucks…just about anywhere someone wants me to bring a cake – this one is IT! I adore this – it’s very, very chocolaty and extremely moist.  (It’s not low-carb…sometimes you can’t mess too much with a great thing.  But it’s sugar free or low sugar, depending on…
