This makes a beautiful cake. I made it this week for a lunch at work. The recipe comes from the February/March 2002 Taste of Home's Light and Tasty magazine. I made some minor adjustments to reduce the amount of sugar.
I made my daughter's wedding cake using this recipe. It turned out fantastic. The texture is just perfect for a wedding cake -- not too fluffy so it breaks from the weight, but also not overly dense. The flavor, texture and moistness were just right. I made two batches of the batter for a three-tiered wedding cake using 14", 10" and 6" pans that were 3-inches deep. I had enough extra batter for a 9" layer (not a deep pan). This recipe was originally created by Rebecca Sutterby.
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.
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.
I have been in search of a recipe for an alternative whipped topping for some time now. I don't want any chemicals or dairy in it. I came across this today from Vegsource.com. but changed a few things to suit my needs. This is creamy and light and absolutely delicious.
In Portland, Oregon there was a restaurant called the Hillvilla. It was most famous for it's pumpkin pie. When the baker Eddie Palaske died, this recipe was posted in the Oregonian in his obituary, he was so well known for it. The special seasoning for this pie is different, but makes the best pumpkin pie that I have ever eaten, and when I make it for holidays, it gets rave reviews! I have not used any other recipe for over 25 years! I am sure you will love it! The time listed to prepare does not include cooking time.
