Blackberry Clafoutis

Made this recipe yesterday:  http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/08/the_great_cobbl/ The noteworthy thing is how much better this clafoutis turned out than all my previous attempts (ok just one previous attempt). The recipe does not specify what kind of vessel to use for cooking, but I used a tart pan, which turned out to be the perfect size. The top…

Pineapple Bourbon Upside Down Cake

This is one of my favorite cakes ever. Eric Wolitzky spent his entire run on Top Chef: Just Desserts having crises of confidence because he was a baker, not a pastry chef by trade, but really, who cares if you can bake a macaron. This cake is where it’s at. I have made it twice…


Buttered Caramel Ice Cream with Raspberry Swirl

Apple-Raspberry Crumble with Oat-Walnut Topping

Some Personages came to visit over the past weekend and in addition to demolishing my chocolate cake they had to go and make this recipe as well. It was delicious and gone the same evening. We are all fatties. But we didn’t eat dinner so it’s OK right? The previous day we went and picked…


Chocolate Cake with Mocha Frosting

Yes, I did just  make this cake last week in cupcake form. But look at it. Clearly this beauty was just hovering in the ether waiting to be made. And it was frickin delicious too. I took the chocolate frosting from this recipe, made with some high quality Via instant coffee, and paired it with…


Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes

Turned this recipe into cupcakes. Started out with 24 yesterday, here’s all that’s left. No, we did not eat 21 cupcakes by ourselves. Schmoops might have done it given enough time though, I think he’s leaving me for the buttercream frosting. The cake didn’t rise into perfect domes like my Banana Cupcakes, but the flavor…
