I love to cook, but deep down inside, I know that what I really am is a baker. There is nothing better to me than to have something sweet baking in the oven, with lots of 'warm' spices. Makes my house a 'home', if you know what I mean.
This recipe goes back to when my son was small and that is quite a while back, and I still make them, these are moist and rich no need for an electric mixer for this recipe it's all mixed with a wooden spoon, I have even added in chopped walnuts or mini chocolate chips, my recipe #89207 works great with these :)
If you love lemon the way our family does you will love these lemon squares! Just the slightest hint of coconut in the bottom layers gives it just the right touch. Lemony delicious layer completes the top! Hmmmmm! So delicious you won't be able to stop at just one!
I originally got this recipe from verybestbaking.com. It was posted there in the swapped recipes by L.Terrell. I have made a few adjustments to the original recipe and I often double the praline topping because it's so good. It's very yummy and very easy!
This is the best Cinnamon Raisin Bread I've ever had! It really has a great consistency and smells WONDERFUL while baking. I made this for the first time about a year ago and since it makes 3 loaves, I gave one to my neighbor. Now she asks for it constantly and since it is so fun to make, I oblige her, plus I get to keep the other 2 loaves!
I make this recipe when I have no energy to make one of my more elaborate desserts. It's very easy to make, and the cookies come out soft and bakery-perfect! I love this recipe so I've translated it off the ynet.co.il site, which credited Osnat Roth of the Tusha Patisserie in Tel Aviv.
These comments are from their cookbook:
"At Magnolia we decided to make our cake not quite a traditional yellow cake or a traditional sponge cake, given the use of whole eggs in our recipe. We're sure you'll agree this recipe is moist, delicious and makes a beautiful layer cake or cupcakes for birthdays or any celebration. Frost with pink buttercream icing and lots of colored sprinkles as we do, and feel as though you're at your seventh birthday party all over again!"
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.
It's the muscovado sugar that gives these brownies its decadent treacle flavor. I've made them while in England and shared them with the teachers of modern languages (I've taught German in Kingston, near London). They were a big hit! I've never made them in Switzerland so far, as it is hard or even impossible to purchase muscovado sugar. I may try to replace the muscovado sugar with brown sugar, but I know it won't be the same. Maybe I should just wait until I go to England again...
An old recipe from my MIL Libby.The directions for baking are not here as she used a wood stove. Watch them as I am guessing on the time and temperature. She made these a lot when Rudy was growing up. They are wonderful. She loves anything with coconut. Her Mother kept a jar of it just for her.
I love this yummy little oatmeal cookie packed with nuts and raisins and a wonderful combination of spices and then topped with a drizzle of brown butter glaze. It is another of my favorite Paula Deen (FoodTV) recipes. If you can keep yourself from eating them all the day you make them, they are even better the next day (stored tightly wrapped).
