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?

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.  ;)

Chocolate Oatmeal Cake For My Birthday

Yep, it's my birthday.  My 50th Birthday.  One half of a century old.  I have boys.  A 9 1/2 year old and 5 1/2 year old twins.  Hubby of 24 years.  Beautiful friends.  Some loving family.  Dogs, cats, mini horses, big ole pigs and an old goat.  I'm a Blessed and Happy Old Girl!

Here is my birthday cake.  I didn't want an overly sweet cake.  This is dense, moist, rich and chocolaty.  You may want to use regular cocoa and semi sweet chips if you want a sweeter cake.  Love and hugs!

Dark Chocolate Zucchini Banana Cake

My precious oldest son made 6 A's and 2 B's on his final report card for third grade!!!!  I wanted to make his something special that was a healthier than my usual way of cooking.  I asked and my gorgeous friend, Ann of Sumptuous Spoonfuls, shared her recipe for Decadent Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread I loved the recipe the moment I saw it.   I love ALL of Ann's recipes for that matter!  
A quick trip to the store for zucchini, braving Tropical Storm Debby's rain bands and a stop by the Dr.,  I was bitten and scratched by one of our kitties this morning, I was all set to cook.  The bread...my boys call it cake, it's that good, has the rich taste a dark chocolate, a hint of banana, not too sweet (you can adjust sugar to your taste), and very moist!  A hit!  A little dense and oh so good! 
Well, what are you waiting for?  Go pick, or pick up, some zucchini!  <3 and hugs! 



Dark Chocolate Zucchini Banana Cake

2  squares unsweetened chocolate, 1 oz each, melted
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup nonfat yogurt
1 ripe banana mashed, approximately 1/2 cup
2 1/2 to 3 cups grated zucchini,  I used one medium
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup unbleached whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup milled flax seed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
cinnamon sugar to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 350F.  Oil or spray 9" spring form or cake pan.  
Melt chocolate according to directions. Cool.
Add cocoa, sugar, eggs and yogurt.  Mix well.
Sift together all dry ingredients.  
Add to wet ingredients and mix to incorporate. 
Pour in pan and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Turn and cook another 10-25 minutes.  Yeah, I know it's a wide range in time.  
I kind of lost track.   As always, my oven cooks different than yours.  Please adjust time accordingly.
It's done when toothpick, skewer or thin knife comes out clean.
Cool on rack and wait as long as you can.  Okay, go ahead and cut it now.  You deserve it!
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and enjoy! 





Enjoy!  Love and hugs!

Chocolate Ricotta Cake w/Bittersweet Yogurt Icing

I found a recipe on the side of Sorrento's Ricotta container for The Best Chocolate Cake Ever.  I just had to try it to see if it was telling the truth.  Changing just a little bit from the original and now waiting to see how it turns out......It was wonderful and my boys were any the wiser of my switch!  My oldest said it was the best while my twins keep asking for it for breakfast!  As far as the icing (frosting) goes, well, let's say I came about it mistakenly by not having enough ingredients on hand when I started the cake.  My boys loved the bittersweet taste.   Get the ricotta out of the fridge, you have a cake to bake!  Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!
