aka: 'How to Make the Perfect Cheesecake' This recipe includes very detailed instructions for preparation which is the key to any great cheesecake. *This is my signature recipe that I have spent many many hours perfecting the
ingredients and techniques for. This is not 'NY Style' but real 'NY Cheesecake'.
The end result is a wonderful cheesecake that some will tell you to eat with a towel, because it's like an 'O' in your mouth.
These cupcakes are the "I'm-trying-so-hard-to-stop-pretending-these-are-a-main-dish" type, when prepared with recipe #213910 as the icing--the Guava Cream-cheese filling. I hulled out a small circle in the middle of the cupcakes and filled them with this. Undeniably addicting! Found this idea on an online blog.
This is the apple pie I've been making for years and if using Pillsbury pie crusts (ready-made pie dough in the dairy section) is the perfect pie-making project for kids. Recipe adapted from an old church cookbook.
For Zaar World Tour - Scandanvia - Finland. I've been making this simple coffee cake for years -- actually this is the first cake I ever made by scratch soon after I got married eons ago - it is not too sweet and is great with coffee served for brunch or as cut in squares snacks. Recipe source: The Finnish Cookbook
I got this recipe from my Mom's recipe collection. Flecked with apricot bits and flavored with rum and almonds, this is a moist and delicious pound cake. The recipe calls for light rum, but I have used dark rum and it was just as delicious. If you have the willpower, the cake tastes even better if wrapped when cool, and left overnight before cutting. I didn't name the recipe, but I don't know if I would classify this as a Pound Cake as it is quite light, just a bit denser than an angel food cake IMHO.
Ever since I joined Zaar I wanted to post this wonderful, never-fails-to-impress recipe. I know there are dozens of carrot cake recipes on Zaar, but I haven't come across one exactly like this one. It bakes perfectly at any altitude and is scrumptious. The metric measures are the ones I use.
There are many great gooey butter cake recipes out there but this is different from the cake mix variety because it has a yeast dough bottom. I grew up eating these cakes from a little bakery in Clayton, Mo and this recipe is as close to those as I've ever come across.
This is a super easy and unique dessert.
I love unique recipes to surprise my friends with. And I love avocados! I have used gingernut/ginger snap biscuit/cookies for the crumb crust. I have also substituted lime juice and zest for the lemon juice. Enjoy.
Do you like baked apples? Do you like cake? Then you will love this treat. This cake will make a wonderful dessert or a different treat for an afternoon break. I use very small apples for this cake. I love the baked apples flavours in combination with a more dry texture of the cake. The cake is not overly sweet and will take up any juices from the apples. The taste of the slightly tart apples, which are still a bit firm after baking and the fluffy texture of the cake is great. The apples are stuffed with my favorite combination of marzipan, raisins and rum. If you want to make it for kids, you can sub the rum (see note on this). Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
