Hershey’s Black Magic Cake

I haven’t been baking as much as I used to as when I started this blog (not that long ago) because quite frankly we all have crazy sweet-teeth and absolutely no self control. So every time I baked something (which was 2-3 times a week), it was gone within a day. I kid you not!…

Chocolate Striped Cake

I always loved watching my mom make Marble Cakes when I was a kid; there was always something so magical about the way it looked when she cut through it and you got to see the design. It was one of the first recipes I shared on this blog. I’ve been experimenting with some other designs and…

Chocolate Pudding Cake

I’m a real sucker for a good lava cake, it’s something I’m always looking out for on a restaurant menu! I’ve been working on a mug cake recipe which I haven’t quite mastered yet because it always ends up too caky and not gooey enough. Hopefully I’ll be able to share that soon once I…

Double Chocolate Layer Cake

I don’t often use buttermilk in recipes because I never usually have any in the house, but since it does add a nice touch to the cake I do enjoy using it from time-to-time. This time I even thought, what the heck lets get some heavy cream too and make this cake even more luxurious….

Apple Cake with Cinnamon Sugar

We make apple cake fairly frequently at our house, probably just as much as banana bread; It just seems to be a universal favourite. I’ve tried quite a few variations but this recipe seems to be the top contender at the moment, because it is really moist and dense, with a sweet crispy topping. It’s…

Almond Cherry Cake

There are usually at least half a different kinds of fruit in the house since everyone (other than myself) has a smoothie as a part of breakfast, or I use them with baked oats (see recipes for Fruity Baked Oats, Banana Oats French Toast). So when I want to make something other than chocolate there…

Devil’s Food Birthday Cake

I I love trying new recipes, which unfortunately means I  don’t get around to repeating some of the favorites soon enough. However I’ve made this Devil’s Food Cake a few times, because it’s a great go to recipe and is very versatile. I’ve used it to make both a single layer cake with a glaze…

Chocolate Glaze (No cream)

No one in my house seems to like American Buttercream Frosting; It’s too sweet and I find the texture too grainy irrespective of what recipe I’ve tried. So i’m always experimenting with alternatives, and this one seems to have gotten the best response so far. It’s an easy, pourable glaze and works well on any…
