This is not your normal apple tart. The healthy date, nut crust allows you to indulge without guilt or compromising flavor. It takes no time to prepare, and will please and satisfy anyone who loves apple pie, you will love me for this one
The addition of cocoa and cinnamon makes this a Mexican classic! You can make this into one 10-inch bundt, two 9x5 loaf cakes, or four 8x4 loaf cakes. NOTE: Don't overbake or this will be dry. Posted for 'Zaar World Tour II.
While this recipe is good any time it is the first one requested when the fall apples ripen. It was passed to me by a family member. The recipe calls for an 8x8 deep baking pan. Family member uses a corning ware casserole dish for the baking which makes for a lovely dessert. I often bake it in a pie plate and when cool slice and serve as you would pie. Using white sugar in the crumb crust has it so tasting like pastry. Quick and easy to make. NOTE - recently found this recipe from an old family cookbook is called aunties 'Old Fashioned Crumb Cake' and calls for baking in a 425 oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until brown and crisp. Just made it and found baked at the higher temperature it very like an apple crisp - an absolutely delicious version of Almost Apple Pie and another great apple dessert to serve family and friends. Ovens vary - I used a slightly lower oven temp.
If you like lemon, you're going to love this cake! Saw this recipe being made by the Barefoot Contessa on FoodTV and just had to have it. Not being overly experienced, I was a bit intimidated by the recipe. However, it is not very hard, looks great and the taste is incredible! Cook time does not include time for the cakes to cool.
A British tea time favorite. This is sweet and tart. Try it on scones, muffins, and tea breads or layer on Angel Food cake with Raspberries and recipe #54868! I've also microwaved this just watch and stir a lot. For orange or lime curd, substitute appropriate fruit rind and juice. Proceed as directed.
FYI- When filling a cake with this be sure to pipe a rim of frosting on the edge of the first layer, then fill inside with the chilled lemon curd, place top layer then frost.
I can't believe I'm sharing this family recipe. It's the signature Jansen Family Recipe and no family gathering is complete without it. I'm submitting it for a request for recipes and ideas for a sleep-over/birthday party event. It's from my Mom, it's old, I have no idea where it came from. No need to drag out the mix-master for this, just a bowl and a pot is all you need.
The original recipe makes 6 individual sized chocolate cakes which is fine for a dinner party, but for everyday snacking, I prefer to make this in a Bundt pan. It is a very moist, delicious cake that keeps well for several days.
The holy grail of chocolate frosting! The secret is the cream cheese. I actually don't like cream cheese, but you can't taste the cream cheese in the frosting. The cream cheese somehow adds just the right touch to the chocolate flavor.
