Pumpkin Cranberry Carrot Dump Cake

Tis the season for pumpkin and cranberries...in a dump cake!  I have never had any success with dump cakes and have never been able to get the simpliest of cakes right, until now.  This Pumpkin Cranberry Carrot Dump Cake turned out to be amazing!  We even ate some for breakfast!

Brownie Cake

I have been wondering if making a cake out of a boxed brownie mix (I used Ghirardelli) would work for some time now. I finally decided to try it on my birthday and my boys had been asking for brownies.  To my, and their, delight...the Brownie Cake turned out great, if I do say so myself.

Blueberry Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Pecan

It's July and it is hot as a firecracker outside and in!  I don't know who in their right mind would turn on the oven in this heat!  Well, except yours truly.  I had a reason behind my madness.   Wanna hear it?  Good....I thought so.  I figured, if I turned on the oven and made this fantastic Blueberry Coffee Cake for hubby and the boys, I could get a couple of breakfast meals, or snacks, out of it.....no turning on the oven a second time!  Make sense?  Maybe not but it was reasonable to me.  A huge plus since I, one....used up all the blueberries in the fridge that were going to go bad.  And two ..... I have been wanting to make this for a long time!


Hot out of the oven!

Butterfinger Cake

Do you love candy and cake?  If you are reading this, chances are you do or at least know someone that does.  Either way, I've got you covered with this Butterfinger Cake.  It’s been around a very long time and it could very well be your Mama, and your Grandma, made this cake.  Yes, indeed.  Chocolate, caramel, candy and cool whip!!!!  Shut the front door!  Hurry up and make this for yourself or that someone that you know that needs this.  Needing is a good thing, at least when you are talking Butterfinger Cake.  Right?

Pumpkin Spice Carrot Cake

Hubby bought me a food processor a few weeks ago and I am just now getting around to figuring out how it operates.  At first, it was very frustrating not having it seal correctly.  Now, it is a breeze to use, I don't know what I did different other than read the directions ~wink~ and love using it!  Yesterday, I decided to make a Pumpkin Spice Carrot Cake....using the food processor.  I wasn't happy with the outcome in the beginning since I ended up with a very wet egg and sugar mixture.  It was not at all what I envisioned, however, I decided to go forward with it anyway.  I'm so glad I did!  Though, I didn't know where I was going with it...pie or cake.  It turned out to be a little of both.  I have also made this cake using my stand mixer and it was tall, moist and wonderful.  My boys ate it all without icing!  Either way, you will love this!

Cranberry Coconut Cream Poke Cake

Holidays; music, laughter, togetherness and food!  That is what winter holidays bring to mind.  No matter the occasion, it is celebrated with food while people gather..laughter overheard while music fitting the day, plays softly in the background.  With our family, each person brings something. Grandma and her Chicken and Dumplings.  My other Grandma always made a Sour Cream Pound Cake. Mama and her Blueberry Cake.  Daddy always roasted the turkey.  Papa always manned the grill.  This Cranberry Coconut Cream Cake, if I had thought about it before, it would be my go to cake.  So easy..as most of my recipes are, and bursting with delightful flavors!  I know this would have been a favorite of my Daddy’s seeing how his favorite cake to eat was coconut.  Make this refrigerator cake to take with you on your holidays visits and be prepared to be asked to make it again and again.  Make this a day ahead as it gets better the longer the flavors have time to mingle.

Chocolate Pudding Cake

An old recipe passed down and around from generation to generation.  Old classics, from our parents and grandparents, are the ones that are dear to my heart.  Tried and true, they are truly amazing.  Withstanding the test of time to be made over and over and over, again.  Just reading an old recipe can make my heart smile with sweet and loving memories of years gone by.  ~heartfelt smile~

Devil's Food Mayonnaise Cake

I’ve heard about mayonnaise cakes for the longest of times.   Certainly they have been around forever.  Your precious mama and grandma, most likely, made them for you.  I’m pretty certain mine did even though I despise mayo or miracle whip.   If you have been around here, you know the story, how my mean sister made me eat a heaping tablespoon of the white stuff.  ~shivers thinking about it~  This is the only way I will ever eat it.  Ever! You will not notice it at all, I promise.  It makes the cake very moist, even when using a cake mix.  Go ahead and try it, you will be glad you did.  I will be making one from scratch soon and look forward to sharing it, along with two other mayonnaise cakes I made this past week.  Yes, my boys really love them.  They don't know what the secret ingredient is, I'm not certain I'm going to tell them, either.  ;)

Lime Pound Cake Loaf

I made this recipe, which is supposed to bread,  but is more like pound cake, and topped it with a refreshing drizzle of lime glaze.  I took it to the pool and in no time at all, it was gone!  So refreshing on a hot day.  Enjoy!

Dark Chocolate Coca Cola Cake From A Cake Mix

Two ingredients, well three if you add chips, nuts or marshmallows, in this moist and wonderful dark chocolate cake!  The icing, you can make as much and as thick, as you wish.
I made a lot of icing to pour over the hot cake so it ended up as a rich, very moist and almost like a pudding cake.  Gooey and decadent.  Eat it warm or cold, my preference, out of the refrigerator.  But, do, keep it in the fridge.  Grab a fork and spoon and dig in!

Vanilla Cherry Pie Bars

I found out that cake and pie filling make a wonderful fast dessert!  Numerous recipes have been around for a gazillion years doing this.  Where have I been?  I'm just glad I finally decided to make this!  Get that box of cake mix out along with the can of pie filling and make these yummy pie bars.   I've added vanilla chips as an option.  They are good, however, there was too much vanilla for me.  If you love vanilla, then, by all means, add the chips!.  Here is your slice, right out of the oven.  ~smile~

Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake

I made my Sour Cream Pound Cake lemony for Easter and it turned out wonderful, or so says my family.  ~smile~  I was going to use real lemons but didn't have enough to use in the cake and the glaze, and went with extract instead, which worked out great.  Next time I'll plan ahead and be certain to have more lemons on hand.  Happy Easter and many Blessing to you and yours.  I hope you enjoy the day, and this cake, with those dear to you.

Carrot Cake

I LOVE Carrot Cake!!  I think it is one of my all time favorite cakes.  While I was growing up my Beloved Aunt Ree Ree would always bake our favorite cake on our birthday.  That and a dollar or two in a card were treasured.  We were able to eat the first slice and shared the rest with pleasure.  Lately, I have been wanting one and just haven't been able to make one.  Each time I go to the fridge, I find the mini horses have eaten all the carrots.  I blame my hubby for that but no worries..the minis love carrots, too.

I watched The Pioneer Woman this morning and was inspired to make Sloppy Joe Hoagies and a Carrot Cake.  I wanted to make the Chocolate Dipped Granola Bars but didn't have time.  Perhaps in a day or two when the cake is gone.  The cake is an easy recipe to make.  It's one I have made for many, many, many, many years, yes, that long.  I usually make a little icing.  My boys and I eat it as is.  Hubby likes the icing so we let him eat it all if he wants.  Enjoy!

This recipe can also be found here.

Dark Chocolate Bean Cake with Raspberry Sauce

I am always looking for new recipes to make.  Especially ones I can sneak something healthy into like veggies or beans.  This time I used beans and nobody was the wiser.  It has a slightly different texture but not in a bad way.  It is a thin cake and will be eaten in no time at all.  I made this last night and it is already gone.  Make it for your family and don't tell them what the secret ingredient is.  You'll smile as they eat it and rave about their newest favorite cake.  Enjoy!



Dark Chocolate Bean Cake 

1 large can white beans, rinsed and drained
3 large eggs
1/2 unsweetened dark cocoa
3/4 to 1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 to 1 cup dark chocolate, chopped, or mini semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease 8" springform pan. 
In a food processor, mini processor (that's what I used) or blender,  pulse or blend, beans and eggs until smooth.  Put in bowl and whisk in cocoa, sugar, soda, salt, and vanilla extract.  Stir in chocolate chips, as many as you wish.   
Pour into a greased 8" in springform pan.  
Cook in preheated oven for 15 minutes, turn and cook another 12-18 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. 


Raspberry Sauce

2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen, I used frozen
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons granulated sugar, more if desired
1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract, optional

While cake is cooling, heat water and sugar until sugar is dissolved to make a light syrup.  
Add 2 cups raspberries to light syrup.  
You can add more water and sugar to make more syrup. 
Heat raspberries.
Spoon over whole cake or individual slices.  
Keep refrigerated if sauce is over cake.  

Enjoy!

Dark Chocolate Upside Down Cake

An old recipe my Grandma and Mama would make.  It's also known as Chocolate Cobbler.  Very simple yet wonderful.  It's just what your chocolate lovers are wanting!  A thin cake with a thick chocolate sauce. You can easily double this to make a thicker cake.  When ready to serve, cut a piece, flip it over with a spatula and see the amazement on faces gathered 'round.  
Enjoy!  Love and hugs!
