Who doesn’t love cake? Seriously. If that’s you. Get outta here. We’ve all had our share of great cakes, but if you want to spice things up a little, cake of the month clubs are a fun idea. The name really says it all. This type of club provides you with a cake each month. […]
Angelfood cake is one of those ubiquitous delicacies we all had in one for or another, sometimes so moist and delicate it left lasting memories, sometimes so dry and unremarkable we learned to hate the sponge cake.
But if you learn to make it fresh, any negative connotations you had before about it will melt into its soft crumb. Paired with this moody compote of blackberries and blueberries marinated together and garnished with a punch of licorice-laden tarragon, you have the makings of a very memorable dessert. Dollop the best organic whipping cream you can find alongside, and your guests will be talking for weeks about the meal.
Ever wonder what to do with extra ripe bananas? If you are anything like our family you end up with too many ripe ones, freeze them, forget about them, and they end up going in the trash! Luckily there are so many nice ways to use them, and this delicious and decadent pudding and cake hybrid is one of them.
The measurements call for two cups of banana puree– that should be about six bananas, depending on their size because they sure do vary! Make sure they are so ripe the skins are nearly black. You can achieve this quickly by placing nearly-there bananas in a paper bag with another ripening fruit such as an apple or a tomato. They share the same ripening agents and will help each other along.
Now here is a dessert the whole family can get behind! The sumptuous familiarity of fall in the caramelized apple garnish, and the warm comfort of ginger and honey in this decadent cake… what’s not to love! If your family is a big fan of the ginger flavor, feel free to grate some fresh ginger right on in the mix, a little goes a long way and can not hurt this hearty cake!
As for the whiskey caramelized apples, if there are some in your group who love the little extra ‘punch’ to their evening, I like serving a full shot alongside this desert. Why not? Find your designated driver for the evening and have second dessert helpings!
Slow Cooker Blueberry and Cinnamon Swirl Bread is a great homemade slow cooker meal that is sure to please you and the whole family. This recipe is even great for those times when you need to take a dessert into work or to a gathering. This bread is not just an average bread recipe as it has blueberries in it and a cinnamon swirl that twists and winds throughout the bread itself. I absolutely love making this recipe because it is not too difficult at all. In fact, prior to this recipe, I always had a hard time making bread in the oven. It would either burn or not be cooked enough in the oven or it would just not taste the way it should.
