  • Strawberry Cake

    This strawberry cake is not made with Jell-o or food coloring so don’t be surprised when it comes out of the oven and is not bright pink. This cake still packs a mean strawberry kick. The top of the cake does not dome and the crumb is very tender due to the amount of fruit preserve and fresh fruit. Add a layer of jam between layers or in the center of the cupcake and top with a delicious whipped cream frosting to really capture the lightness of the crumb.

  • Snickerdoodle Cookies

    This recipe uses the simplest ingredients, but it’s almost impossible to eat just one snickerdoodle. The edges are wonderfully crisp while the inside is soft and chewy. Although similar to a sugar cookie, the snickerdoodle is rolled in cinnamon sugar just before baking, giving the outside a dark crackled top.

    You either love it or you hate it but carrot cake is never going out of style. One bite of this cake just might win you over if you are not a fan of carrot cake. It’s rich, moist, and full of great flavor. When covered with a creamy goat cheese frosting or traditional cream cheese frosting it is hard to resist. Applesauce can be substituted for pineapple and if you are allergic to walnuts they can be omitted from the recipe.

  • Caramel Browned Butter Chocolate Filling
