  • caramel cake

    caramel cake

    This is a simple and straightforward cake you can make with store bought caramel if you’d like, but the caramel sauce recipe is fairly easy and straightforward too, and once you realize how easy it is to make, you’ll not want to use store bought caramel sauce again. You can also double the recipe and…

  • coffee black walnut pound cake

    coffee black walnut pound cake

    Black walnuts. They really are an acquired taste. Not as popular as English walnuts, black walnuts can be a little spendy, unless you buy them still in their shells, but then their shells can stain your hands and are quite hard to crack open without at least a hammer. Plus, once you do manage to crack…

    colomba di pasqua 

    Happy Easter! I wanted to create something festive and in keeping with the season. Although this usually contains dried fruit like golden raisins or candied peel and is often baked in a paper liner that’s shaped like a dove, I didn’t have any of those things.

    Good Morning! Ben and I are celebrating one of our anniversaries! Today is the anniversary of the day we met, sixteen years ago! Crazy, huh? Even though we also have a wedding anniversary every June and usually do not have big celebrations with either, this one feels more special to us. I think because for…

  • malted hazelnut coffee cake

    malted hazelnut coffee cake

    The brown butter, hazelnuts, and coffee extract all complement the malted milk flavor very well in both the cake and the streusel topping. This can be enjoyed by itself as a snack, or if you want to get real decadent, top with a scoop of French vanilla bean ice cream. I made this for Ben…
