This dough is extremely versatile. You can use it the same day or refrigerate for up to 3 days.It is rich, sweet, tender and easy to work with. I get compliments on it no matter what I use it for - cinnamon buns, filled braids, yeasted coffee cakes, whatever you can imagine. I sometimes use maple extract or orange extract instead of vanilla to match the filling.
I got this recipe out of a Taste of Home book last summer and I love this recipe. I made it for a BBQ and my daughter requested it as a birthday cake. I've also used strawberries and blueberries for 4th of July celebration. The recipe recommends slicing the cake with a serrated knife. To split the cake into three layers I use dental floss - Makes a nice clean cut.
I have created this recipe, using a variety of other recipes for a base and then changing many things to meet my intense lemon craving! These go together very quickly and they are very tangy, on the too-tangy side of wonderful almost. If you lovelovelove tangy lemon and want a nice crisp crust with a higher ratio of lemon to crust, please try this recipe and tell me what you think!
A creamy pumpkin cheesecake topped with whipped cream, pecan halves, and caramel sauce. A hint of brandy enhances the flavors of the pumpkin and spices. Using gingersnap cookie crumbs further enhances the flavor of the dessert.
These are to die for! Now that I've got nut allergies to deal with in my household, I make these without the nuts and with extra crumb mixture (1 1/2 times the crumb mix), but the nuts are really good to cut the sweetness. The recipe is originally from a land-o-lakes pamphlet. Part of prep time is cool time.
This is a unique family recipe that is originally from my great, great aunt. I have not tried it, but submitted it in response to a request. I'm sorry I don't know the serving size or exactly how long it takes to bake!
A beautiful cupcake for Christmas -- or Valentine's Day. The cake has become almost traditional for the upcoming season and now here is an individual-sized serving to highlight a dessert tray. The recipe came from a book of cupcake recipes and decorating ideas. I'm sorry to say I know neither the name of the book nor the author but am grateful to have gotten such a great recipe! Note that the recipe for a suggested frosting is included at the end of the recipe, but any white frosting of your choice may be used.
Edited to add: The recipe comes from the book "Hey There, Cupcake!" by Clare Crespo. It contains lots of decorating ideas.
