• Six Layer Whipped Ganache filled Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

    This is not the recipe I had planned to share with you this week, but when I saw these pictures I realized, it’s time y’all met the fabulous chocolate cake I made for my birthday!   Isn’t she beautiful!     This six layer beauty starts with the same classic chocolate cake recipe used for my Double Chocolate Birthday Cake last year. This recipe makes enough batter for 2 deep layers, or you can split it into three pans. I chose to bake it in three pans and then cut them in half to have six layers. Yes, you read that right, SIX layers of chocolate cake. When you’re turning 30…

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

    Hi y’all! It’s been a while since we talked but if you were sitting in my kitchen today I’d make you a cup of coffee, serve you a slice of this cheesecake, and catch up on what’s going on in your life. But since we can’t sit down and chat today, here’s a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake that is a favorite at our house. But first I have to warn you, this cheesecake is indulgent. It all starts with a rich and creamy cheesecake that is filled with cookie dough and chocolate chips. A small slice goes a long way, which means it will last longer or…

  • Crumb Coffee Cake

      I love a good coffee cake with my coffee on Saturday morning. But there is no need to wait until Saturday morning to enjoy this Crumb Coffee Cake.     The Crumb topping makes this coffee cake a little fancier than the Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe already on my blog. There is something classic about a Crumb Coffee Cake and this one has the perfect ratio of crumb to cake. The cake is light and fluffy and the crumb topping is full of wonderful things like brown sugar and cinnamon.     Buttermilk makes the cake extra moist and I know I’ve already mentioned it, but just take a look at how…

  • Oatmeal Cake with Caramel Icing

    So I know it’s not quite fall yet, thanks to my hubby for reminding me this week that we still have a couple weeks of summer left. But since I want you to be fully prepared for fall and all of the delicious food that comes with it, today I’m sharing a cake that just screams fall.     This Oatmeal Cake is another recipe from my hubby’s mom. Now don’t let its plain name fool you. This cake is full of flavor and is incredibly moist. I don’t know if mentioning moist just once is convincing enough. This Oatmeal Cake is what a moist cake dreams of being.  The recipe…

  • Double Chocolate Cake

      So last weekend I celebrated my birthday and like most food bloggers, I made my own Double Chocolate Cake. Now don’t go hating on my hubby for making me make my own birthday cake, he offered to make one for me. He actually has made me a birthday cake in the past, but this year I was dreaming of this amazing Double Chocolate Cake that I’m sharing with you today.     This recipe makes a lot of cake. Unless your cake pans have unconventionally high sides, I recommend splitting the batter into three pans. Since I only have two 9-inch cake pans, I bake two layers and then wash one of the…

  • Mini Lemon Cheesecakes

    We love cheesecake at our house! But I don’t love all of the time involved in baking and chilling! A couple years ago I discovered mini cheesecakes that are baked in a muffin tin and my life was changed for the better.     There are two great things about mini cheesecakes. First is that they are baked and ready to enjoy in a fraction of the time of traditional cheesecake. Read, you can bake and enjoy them in the same day! And second is they are portion controlled! Since these cheesecakes are healthier than most traditional cheesecake, I certainly won’t tell if you decide to eat more than one at a time.     I have recently rediscovered…

  • Sour Cream Coffee Cake

    Growing up coffee cake was one of the breakfast foods my mom made all the time, probably because it could easily feed our large family. I remember many breakfasts sitting around the kitchen table with my family, eating coffee cake and talking.     Now, this isn’t the recipe I grew up eating, But this cake tastes even better the next day. Yep, you heard that right, it tastes even better the next day. So go ahead, bake it the night before and then sleep in. The sour cream keeps the cake moist and gives it a delicious flavor. I love baked goods that include sour cream!     Using melted butter in the topping creates little craters in…

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

    As I’m typing this post I’m realizing this is the third chocolate chip recipe I’ve posted. I think it’s safe to say that we have a slight chocolate chip obsession at our house! When I made this over the weekend the hubby said that he had forgotten how much he liked it!   For the longest time, I wasn’t a fan of cookie cakes, I thought most of them were hard and bland. But after trying several recipes without success, I found this one and didn’t look back. This cookie cake is soft and chewy because of the brown sugar, cornstarch, and extra egg yolk.     One of the best things about this…
