I really enjoy cheesecake and prefer a simple straightforward one. I don't need lots of fancy additions. But if you prefer a "dolled-up" version, throw something on top! My friend, Linda, gave me this recipe a long time ago. It always comes out perfect.
This great cake was shared by a fellow poster named Carmen on a cooking board I frequent and was quite the hit with those who tried it, myself included! This originally came from a Taste of Home publication submitted by Oma Rollison. This is terrific and needs no frosting making it a perfect snack cake.
A Land-O-Lake classic recipe. I've learned the hard way not to roll the crust out on waxed paper. Just make sure you flour the counter extremely well. The easiest way for me to move the crust from the counter to the pan is to fold it over, flour the top if necessary and fold it over again.
Before Cool Whip and instant pudding, this was how a cream pie was made. If you leave out the bananas, you have vanilla cream pie. If you add 1 cup shredded coconut to milk as it's being heated, you have coconut cream pie.
This great pie recipe goes back over 100 years. The recipe came from my grandmother's grandmother who was living in Charleston, South Carolina during the 1860's. Family history has it, that during the Civil War, since pecans were in short supply in the South, oatmeal was substituted for the traditional pecan pie and the results were astonishing. Now served at every family gathering since that time.
My Aunt Emma made the best bread pudding I've ever had. She passed away about 5 years ago and I just ran across a copy of her recipe in my recipe box. Thought I'd share it with you. The brown sugar melts as it bakes on top so it kind of has a caramelized sauce built in. Crumble the brown sugar over the top between your fingers so it doesn't all sink.
This recipe appeared in Our local newspaper about 20 years ago. The recipe comes from an old lady who was a dear friend of Elvis. She made this cake for him every Christmas and on special occasions. She made the paper promise to keep her name anonymous for fear that people would deluge her Tupelo Mississippi home with requests by fans to make her cakes for them.
