I used this recipe for Lola's first birthday cake...it is great! I ommitted the nuts for her and added more cinnamon. Smiles! I am going to have a leftover piece now!




Pumpkin Apple Harvest Cake
By Cait Johnson, author of Witch in the Kitchen

INGREDIENTS

1 cup cooked or canned pumpkin puree
2 large eggs, beaten
3/4 cup organic sugar
3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped apple
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Whipped cream or confectionersí sugar for topping (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 325F. Prepare an 8-inch round cake pan by greasing and flouring it.
2. Combine pumpkin, eggs, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger, and salt, stirring to combine. Add apples and nuts, stirring again. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. NOTE: all the store had was pumpkin "ready" for pie in a can, so I had to increase the bake time to 45 minutes.
4. Cool the cake, still in the pan, on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert the cake onto the rack, remove pan, and cool cake completely.
5. When ready to serve, turn cake on to a pretty plate and top with whipped cream or confectionersí sugar, if desired, or serve plain.

ps. If you make the cake, smooth it out when you put it in the pan as pumkin makes it bake in whatever shape it goes in there with.

p.p.s. I used my fav cream cheese icing recipe; whatever you like.

Default Re: I need a REALLY great dessert recipe

This is THE GREATEST CHOCOLATE CAKE EVER.

http://www.razzledazzlerecipes.com/c...olate-cake.htm

It is not that hard to make but you do need a 9-inch springform pan, a 9-inch cake plate (I usually just use the bottom of my springform plan, actually), and a baking rack.

I usually garnish it by buying a bar of white chocolate, microwaving it so it's a little soft, and using a vegetable peeler to make shavings that I can sprinkle over the cake.

Once I made it when my parents had guests and my mom's friend didn't believe that I made it myself. She thought it came from a bakery.

You heard me. I said Ugly Cookies We also call them "Cowboy Cookies"

1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups oats - quick cook

Preheat oven to 350. Cream sugars and butter. Add eggs and rest of ingredients (I add flour next, slowly, then everything else). Mix well. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Bake about 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.

Yields about 8 dozen for tablespoon dropped size cookies. Of course, I am not known for making tiny cookies so I get about half that

I made this for my hubby coming home

this was the start of it


and decorating it




and the finishing touches





Thanks for look




ETA:

Recipe


This is how I make it ... I used to have a recipe but lost it and I did it from memory

Just get a white cake mix and of course follow directions in preparing it
Then I added a couple strawberries cut up and diced into the cake mix and mixed it all together

Poor in round cake pans and bake

Let cool all the way before icing the cake at all


Icing .... this is the best part

8 oz Cream Cheese
Large Tub of Cool Whip
1 Cup of powder Sugar

Let the Cream Cheese Soften and then blend all the ingredients together and there ya go, yummy Icing

I take the one of the round cake pans (bottom layer and spread icing and some strawberry glaze in the middle (as much as you would like/prefer) ) Then I add the top layer and add the icing to the rest of the cake, add my strawberries to decorate and then I drizzle the cake with the strawberry glace and some more of the original icing!

Of course the Cake has to stay refrigerated

any questions just ask enjoy!

Talking *DELICIOUS DESSERTS*

So I was looking for different cake-in-a-jar recipes online when I came across one for Pina' Colada cake. I thought that would be something different and summery to make and send over to DH and some of his buddies. I never cook anymore, so I devoted my Memorial Day to this project while Cameron spend time with his dad.

I used the following recipe from Razzle Dazzle Recipes:
Pina Colada Jar Cakes

1 can (20oz) unsweetened crushed pineapple
1 stick + 3 T unsalted butter, softened (11 Tbs)
3 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
4 eggs
1/2 cup dark rum
3 1/3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup coconut, sweetened flaked

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Before starting batter, wash 8 (1-pint) wide mouth canning jars with lids in hot, soapy water and let them drain, dry, and cool to room temperature.


Generously grease inside of jars. Drain crushed pineapple for about 10 minutes in a colander, reserving juice. Puree drained pineapple in a food processor. Measure out 1 1/2 cups puree, adding a little juice if necessary to make 1 1/2 cups. Set puree aside. Discard remaining juice or reserve for another use.

With an electric mixer, beat together butter and half of brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, then remaining sugar. Beat in pineapple puree and rum and set aside. Sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Gradually add to pineapple mixture in thirds, beating well after each addition to make a thick batter. Stir in coconut.


Spoon 1 level cupful of batter into each jar. Carefully wipe rims clean, then place jars in center of preheated oven. Bake 40 minutes.


About 10 minutes before cakes are done, bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Put in jar lids, cover, and remove from heat. Keep lids in hot water until they're used. When cakes are done, remove jars from oven.


If jar rims need cleaning, use a moistened paper towel.
Carefully put lids and rings in place, then screw tops tightly shut. Place jars on a wire rack; they will seal as they cool.

Makes 8 cakes

I was very nervous considering I never cook and I've never been good at it, plus I have never made anything like this. But I decided to be brave and give it a shot. I ended up making 2 batches of batter to do 12 jars (since thats how many I bought). The baking went well and I just had to leave them in about 5 minutes longer than the recipe called for.

I had my dad (the master chef) taste it and he said it was a heavy cake and needed something to make it "pop". He said a heavy icing would be too much so we started brainstorming on something light that didn't need to be refrigerated and would do well taking a week to get over there. So we decided on these ingredients and started playing with different combinations till we found one that we liked to use as a "drizzle icing"...

Light rum (shhhh dont tell)
Pineapple juice
Crushed pineapple
Lime juice (small drops)
Coconut
Powdered sugar


So to make a long story short, I am VERY pleased with how it turned out. I kept a jar here for us to try and I just tasted it. I must say I am proud. Even my dad said it was good (which means alot coming from someone who has based his career around food for a long time and is very snobby about food). So its on its way over as of today. I hope they like it. You ladies should try it

Exclamation *DELICIOUS DESSERTS*

I made this cake as a birthday cake for my son for school. We needed a 'beach themed' cake because today is beach day at school. This was so easy and turned out sooooo great that I had to share!!



Ingredients:
  • 2 baked 8″ round yellow cakes
  • 8-9 cup capacity new, plastic, washed sand pail
  • 3 oz. package vanilla pudding, prepared
  • 3/4c. crushed graham crackers or vanilla wafers
  • Chocolate shell candies*
  • 1 plastic shovel
Directions:
  • Cut the cake into 1 inch pieces. Fill the pail, alternating layers of cake pieces and pudding, ending with the pudding.
  • Sprinkle on the crushed cookie sand and top with shell candies.
  • Serve with the plastic shovel!

This is the basic recipe I used, but I only made one cake and used more pudding. I used graham crackers for the sand. For the one pail that is tipped over, I made it standing up, then just laid it on its side and used the shovel to pull some of the cake out of the bucket so it looked like it has spilled. Then I covered it with more graham crackers so it would look like sand.
I used candy shells, sharks, fish, and crabs.

Default *DELICIOUS DESSERTS*

Neiman-Marcus Cookies

When decent people get screwed over, this is the result!

Let's let them have it! THIS IS A TRUE STORY!

My daughter and I had just finished a salad at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas , and we decided to have a small dessert. Because both of us are such cookie lovers, we decided to try the 'Neiman-Marcus cookie. It was so excellent that I asked if they would give me the recip e, and the waitress said with a small frown, I'm afraid not, but you can buy The Recipe. Well, I asked how much, and she responded Only two fifty - it's a great deal I agreed to that, and told her to just add it to my Tab.
Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement, and the Neiman-Marcus Charge was $285.00! I looked again and I remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two salads and about $20.00 for a scarf. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement, it said, ' Cookie Recipe-$250.00. ' That was outrageous! I called Neiman's Accounting Department and told them the waitress said it was ' two fifty ' , which clearly does not mean 'two hundred and fifty dollars by any reasonable interpretation of the phrase.
Neiman-Marcus refused to budge. They would not refund my money because, according to them, What the waitress told you is not our problem. You have already seen the Recipe. We absolutely will not refund your money at this point. I explained to the Accounting Department lady the criminal statutes which govern fraud in the State of Texas . I threatened to report them to the Better Business Bureau and the Texas Attorney General's office for engaging in fraud. I was basically told,Do what you want. Don't bother thinking of how you can get even, and don't bother trying to get any of your money back.
I just said, Okay, you folks got my $250, and now I'm going to have $250 worth of fun. I told her that I was going to see to it that every Cookie Lover in the United States with an e-mail account has a $250 cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus...for free. She replied, I wish you wouldn't do this. I said, Well perhaps you should have thought of that before you ripped me off and slammed down the phone.

So here it is!

Please, please, please pass it on to everyone you can possibly think of. I paid $250 for this, and I don't want Neiman-Marcus to EVER make another penny off of this recipe!

A quick mini-cake for one person.


5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
