Absolutely amazing, this recipe was passed on to me by a dear friend many years ago. Good any time, it has been a tradition to serve it on our holiday dessert table.
Very quick and easy to make, this is one the kids will gladly help with!
I grew up with a dessert called Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. It was a package mix. This is the closest to the original recipe I've had. Similar to other brownie cakes listed but less ingredients and microwave cooked. One of my all time favorites.

Very easy to make and is a wonderful treat. The recipe as posted is 233 calories. I lightened it up even more by using the Splenda brown sugar substitute.
This is my favorite little vanilla pound cake. It's perfect for 2 people. It makes a great base for strawberry shortcakes! Top it with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate... yum. I have done a bunch of diferent things with this perfect little cake. It has a wonderful texture and melts in your mouth. You can easily double this but don't double the baking soda, just leave it at 1/8 teaspoon.
I adore this little lemon pound cake. It's the perfect size when you just need enough for 2 people. The bonus is... it's quick and easy to put together. I can have this in the oven in less then 5 minutes. How great is that?!? This doubles very nicely for when you need a little more but still don't need a big dessert. When doubling, don't double the baking soda, just leave it at 1/8 teaspoon.
This rich and creamy frosting topping a devil's food cake is one of my birthday requirements! Years ago, my mom altered a basic frosting recipe by replacing half of the milk with Kahlua. It really enhances the chocolate flavor. This must be refrigerated but it won't take up room in the fridge for long!
Light yummy dessert. I usually use low fat milk. When using a preprepared shell, I find these to be rather sweet for my taste but makes for quick easy making. My personal preference is to make a half batch of my recipe #177343 and use.
A great icing that we used in Wilton Cake Decorating Class. Would produce amazing results everytime. Thinning is done easily by adding water. This recipe makes "stiff" consistency. To make "medium" add one tablespoon milk or water. To make "thin" icing (perfect consistency for decorating a cake with the basic coating) Add two tablespoons of milk or water. If you want pure white icing, which is the perfect base to tint, use the white crisco shortening and any clear vanilla extract (wilton makes a great one). Using any others will give a faint creamy color that may affect the shade you try and tint with. Using water will give you a stable product that needs no refridgeration and the icing will keep indefinately in the fridge if you keep it in a covered container. If it dries out in the fridge you can always just add a bit of water to bring it back to the consistency you need. If you over thin at any time, just add more icing sugar to thicken. Very versatile product!
This icing is from Wilton, I did the cake decorating course last year and this was the recipe used. This basic recipe gives a stiff icing which is great for making roses and other flowers, but can be thinned down by adding a teaspoon of water at a time to get the consistency you need, for a medium icing for piping add an extra 1 teaspoon of water/milk. For a thin icing to put a base frosting on the cake, add 2 teaspoons of milk/water.
I usually use a combination of almond and vanilla extract, and if you are maikng a pure white icing use a clear extract, Wilton do a range of these.
Italian Rum Cake is a delicious 3 or 4 layer cake, which is a tradition for birthdays/special occasions in many Italian families. There are 3 basic parts to the cake; sponge cake layers, pasticciera cream (filling) and (stabilized) whipped cream. Below are the recipes for all three parts. If you make it with 3 layers, omit the whipped cream layer. The sponge cake and pasticciera creams may be made a day ahead. The whipped cream should be whipped just before assembling the cake. Prep/Cook times do not include the 3-4 hour chilling time for the pasticciera cream.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an egg leavened cake! The egg yolks and whites MUST be beaten to the correct volume and consistency or the recipe will not work. Also, the other ingredients must be folded in (beaten WHITES folded INTO the YOLK/sugar mixture NOT the other way around) in the order given in the directions or the cake will not turn out. The finished layers will be thin depending on the size of your pan. The smaller the pan, the thicker the layers and the longer the baking time needed.
If you are expecting this cake to turn out like a "Génoise or American sponge cake," you will be disappointed as this is not a Génoise sponge recipe.
A light, cream puff-like pastry filled with a sweet egg custard and fresh, organic strawberries. Garnished with a drizzle of bakers chocolate and a dusting of powdered sugar, it's the perfect summer treat!
An excellent cake from Dr Oetker German Home Baking that's simple and easy to make. Hazelnut cakes are also made in Switzerland and probably other European countries. If you have a kitchen scale I would recommend using the weight measurements as they're more accurate but to make it more friendly to North American kitchens I added volume measurements in brackets. You can find bitter almond essence in German delicatessens and in some supermarkets.
Received this recipe at the Christmas WIne Trail. It is to die for! How many times can chocolate burst into your mouth in a bit of a bubble, savored by every taste bud and then give a bit of a silken smooth refresher as an afterthought. This reipe does it and then some. Enjoy
