This recipe is one of my Adoptees. After making it, I felt it needed something to perk it up a bit and Chocolate Fluff Icing recipe#81988 was a perfect addition. This cheesecake has a different texture than traditional cream cheese cheesecakes but delicious none the less. Enjoy!
My most-requested dessert recipe. Moist brownie bottom topped with a thick peanut butter filling and topped off with a chocolate glaze. Please watch the brownies carefully and remove from the oven when toothpick comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it. If your toothpick comes out completely clean then they are overbaked and you will end up with a "cake-like" brownie. Glass pyrex baking pans have yielded the best results in my experience. Note: This recipe doubles beautifully!
I adopted this recipe 9/06. It is incredible. The great reviews are not misleading. I don't get why the instructions tell you to trim the cake. I just chilled the cake for a bit and then spread the frosting on the sides of the cake. This will be my main chocolate cake from now on. I didn't take a great picture of the cake, but the one I took gives you a hint of how much I loved this cake. I didn't share it, I just got a fork and ate it for 3 days right off of the platter. The original description follows.....
This is a super chocolatey buttermilk cake and icing. Very easy to make. This cake is "the" employee comfort food at the catering company where I work.
A Chocoholic's delight! This cake is a bit time consuming to make, but worth the trouble! On the plus side, it can be made in stages, and assembled the day of serving. Prep time includes chilling time.
This is a take on the Nestle Tollhouse recipe. Only one added ingredient, dark brown sugar, melted butter and a smidgen more flour make the difference... I had to sell my soul to my aunt so she'd tell me why hers tasted soooo good! Chewy chocolate chip cookie heaven!!!!!
When our daughter played basketball one of the mom's brought this to a dinner and I have been making it ever since. You can also use your favorite candy bar ie: butterfinger etc. I also put it in a trifle bowl and it's the hit of the party.
This is a great old-fashioned chocolate fudge cake--the cake to turn to for "Chocolate Cake Occasions." This cake is moist, with a fine grain and excellent flavor. Since both kids and adults love this cake, it's great for family gatherings or birthday parties. You could even go as far as to making a double chocolate cake by adding 1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate bits tossed with 1 Tbsp. sifted flour mixture, and add to batter after adding melted chocolate. Great any way you prepare it! (From The Perfect Cake by Susan Purdy)
This fudge recipe is from Taste of Home magazine. I have been making it for several years and everyone just loves it! It makes a lot and is great for gift giving at the holidays. For gifts, I usually pour into 3 separate disposable baking tins (the biscuit size).
This is my favorite chocolate mousse French Silk type pie recipe. You can change this to suit your tastes, like using semisweet chocolate chips if you prefer a not-so-sweet dessert, or using graham cracker crust instead of chocolate crust. You can also garnish this with chocolate kisses, chocolate shavings, more whipped cream, etc.
Girl-type comfort food. But guys, don't be afraid to approach! This works almost as well as a tub of ice-cream for drowning ludicrous sorrows, inextricable squabbles, non-existant hunger, unreasonable resentment, immature grumpiness, unnecessary annoyance, and gaaaawwwwd-i-need-chawwwwkklaate syndrome, but only if the instructions are followed carefully. One mistake and the whole thing is ruined!
I like to get creative with boxed cake mixes. It's more convenient and less time consuming than making cakes from scratch. The mayonnaise in this cake makes it really moist. You cannot tell the mayonnaise is in it. Since mayonnaise is made with eggs and oil, there is no need to add oil to this recipe and it uses less eggs. Instead of the 3 large eggs the directions on the cake mix box calls for, this recipe calls for 2 large eggs.
