My dear friend Lisa made this one day and brought it to work to share. I BEGGED and pleaded her for the recipe because it was so yummy and delish! I was shocked at just how simple it is when she emailed it to me. She got it somewhere on the web- she thought it was cdkitchen. Hope you enjoy it!
Don't like too sweet pecan pie? You'll like this one then, it's mostly nuts with just enough filling to hold them together. Nice change of pace and very decadent. I saw a pecan pie at a local Creole restaurant, in a suburb of Washington DC, that gave me the idea to develop this one.
This is an ivory colored buttercream with a slight tang. I like to fill carrot cakes with it, but it's good enough for any yellow cake as well. From Rose Levy's "The Cake Bible". One batch should be enough to fill one 9-inch cake.
Milk chocolate variation of my chewy and fudgy brownies that I developed to use-up some extra milk chocolate that I had around after x-mas.... A bit lighter than the other, good compromise taste for those that aren't instense chocoholics. Lots of options!
My godmother made these brownies for my brother and I when we were growing up. All I remember is that they were my favorite and I couldn't get enough of them. Believe me, I tried! I am still a huge Kahlua fan and these brownies are , by far, one of my favorite ways to enjoy it.
*A batch of these also make a GREAT gift during the holiday season!*
This recipe was shared with me by a DF when she brought it to one of our Lady Elks Pot Luck Dinners when I lived in Nevada City, CA. All though there is another recipe for a bread pudding with Jack Daniel's sauce it is NOT the same, and this is the recipe my family requests on many of our get togethers.
This makes 2 large pans of pudding, and can be halved, or freeze one for later.
This chocolate cake from Canadian chef Christine Cushing is great to make when you want something a little more special but forgot to take butter out to soften. Decorate it with a sprinkle of icing sugar or with your favourite icing.
I was looking for a cassada cake recipe, and nothing appealed to me, mainly because they all called for citron, which I don't like, so I came up with my own version. But I cheated and used a white cake mix instead of scratch. It turned out nicely and was devoured when I took it to work for a birthday.
