For some reason, I don’t have many recipes using buttermilk. Lately, when I’ve had extra buttermilk from making one thing or another, I try to find a new way to use the rest. Lucky for me, through my recipe testing, I have stumbled upon this Buttermilk Pound Cake recipe! This cake is a great use of buttermilk, and makes enough for a crowd. One of the things that I like most about this Buttermilk Pound Cake is that it is lightly sweet and the top has a slight sugary crispness.
When I first made this Blueberry Buttermilk Cake, it disappeared within about 30 minutes (okay, maybe less…) of slicing into it. Between my two children, my husband, and myself, we devoured it. And then wished I would have made two. You could easily serve this cake for breakfast, dessert, or anytime in between. It is simple and flavorful. Plus, you can use whatever berries are in season, or even frozen berries if that is what you have on hand.
I first made this cake one year when my family was visiting around my Dad’s birthday. This was his “birthday cake”! Ever since, my son has called it “the cake that we had for Grandpa’s birthday” 🙂 Regardless of the occasion, it is an excellent cake to share with family and friends. Your kitchen will smell like fall while it bakes in the oven! Not only is it a delicious dessert, it isn’t overly sweet and I wouldn’t blame you if you had a slice for breakfast… In fact, I’d probably join you!
I love fall. One of my favorite things about fall is the abundance of apples! This is the first of two simple apple cakes that I plan to share with you all this season. I hope that you’ll love it as much as our family does. Tart apples with a little spice and a subtle maple glaze… The giant pan never lasts more than a couple of days!
Need a fun, simple, and delicious dessert this summer? No Bake S’mores “Cake” can be prepared ahead of time, and doesn’t even involve the microwave. Everyone will love this sweet dessert that looks like it took much more effort than it actually does. It’s always fun to have another s’mores recipe for the summer… Especially this summer that just won’t end!
You would probably never guess these cake-like brownies had vegetables in them. They are so moist and full of chocolate flavor. They also do not use any eggs, so they are a great for people who have that allergy. While I won’t claim that these are healthy because of they contain vegetables, I will maintain that these Zucchini Cake Brownies are sure to be a hit!
My husband’s birthday was this past Sunday, and I wanted to make it extra special for him. He has been working on growing a handlebar mustache for several months now, so I knew he would appreciate me recognizing his efforts with his birthday cake! I present to you, The Mustache Cake.
Happy Birthday, dear husband! I love you, and I hope 2013 is your best year yet!!
I recently made this Peanut Butter Sheet Cake to take to a family reunion over Memorial Day weekend. It was very well received and several people asked for the recipe. It’s a great recipe for when you want to make dessert for a crowd.
The name of this cake says it all. It’s gooey. It’s buttery. And oh boy, is it rich! It had been a few years since I’d made the cake, and I was excited when my husband suggested it.
I’m not going to try to avoid the question on this one, I’ll just start with the honest truth: I’ve made ONE traditional cake from scratch. Once. That’s it. It was some time ago, and I don’t remember it being that amazing. Boxed mixes, my friends, is about as far as it gets when it comes to me making cakes. However when it comes to frosting… I have bought fewer than 5 cans of that junk in my lifetime. I just can’t do it… I mean, have you read the nutrition label? Most are chock-full of trans fat, the horrible-nasty-absolutely-no-good-for-you kind of fat. Steer clear!
But what alternatives do you have to canned frosting? Making your own isn’t incredibly difficult, and tastes much better too. If you like the flavor of cream cheese, then this Cream Cheese Frosting recipe is the way to go.
Once you’ve made your own, you’ll never go back.
