The mayonnaise in this may sound strange, but it it the "secret ingredient" that makes the cake so moist. I recommend not using Miracle Whip as it contains spices and flavorings that might alter the taste. They make great cupcakes too.
Another great recipe from my 5th grade teacher/ranch cook. This is an old fashioned recipe that calls for lard which you can find in most baking isles at the store. Do not substitute because that gives it the crusts flaky texture. It will remind you of grandma's.
This is a very simple recipe that tastes so good you'll want to hide them! I have made candy to sell at Christmas time off and on for the past 12 years and these are a must have! This is a very small batch and I am guessing the # you'll get because you can make them like a snack size almond joy or a half bar with 2 almonds, so the size is as you wish. I have made this times 4 the amount with out any problem . They keep very well in an airtight container in a cool place for 1 month.
These are so soft and yummy! They remind me of some I had as a child that a neighbor made all the time. I am so glad to have found this recipe. For convenience I use instant potatoes a lot and it works fine. These are even better the next day which to me with bread is rare, so I plan to make them for Thanksgiving this year.
This is a combination of a couple of recipes. I wanted an apple muffin recipe with oatmeal in it and a streusel on top. I also had one with a caramel drizzle so I just combined the best of three recipes! This can be doubled.
I got this recipe from my sisters MIL. I love the sweet tangy flavor from the apricots paired with the coconuts and nuts. They are wonderful and keep great in an airtight container. They freeze well to.
I love to buy the garlic bread with the whole cloves of garlic from Costco, however I can't always get there when I want. I fiddled around a little and this one is pretty close, you do have to plan ahead because the sponge takes at least 18 hrs but the bread is well worth the trouble. This bread makes the BEST grilled sandwiches! I also like to butter it and grill it to go with a salad. YUMMY!!!
This is so good! We are big time garlic eaters so I add much more! It makes a pretty presentation so it is perfect for a buffet, but yummy enough to make just because. I serve it with soft french bread baguettes.
This is so moist and good. My kids love it, and it makes a great after school snack. If you'd rather ,you can omit the nuts. Also cream cheese frosting works well with this too. UPDATE: to prevent graininess from the brown sugar in the frosting, mix the brown sugar and milk together in a sauce pan and cook on medium heat till sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool and mix w/ other frosting ingredients with a hand held mixer till smooth.
