Almond Cake

Alert the media- cake doesn’t need flour. Or butter. Or milk. It needs eggs, though. Sorry vegans. And vanilla. But did you know that with almond flour, a bit of sugar, eggs, and vanilla, you can make the best, most moist, easiest cake in the world? It’s fat free, to boot. Add some cocoa powder…

Tres Leches Cake

This is a foolproof cake. You can’t mess it up, no matter how hard you try. It’s a sweet cake that’s good whether it’s light or dense, browned or spongy, soaked or dry. You can substitute evaporated milk for condensed milk (which I would NOT recommend)- and it’ll still be good. It’s foolproof. I used…

Cappuccino Cupcakes

Let’s not talk about how long it took me to spell capuccino cappucino cappuccinno cappaccino cappuccino right. Let’s talk about these cupcakes. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of cappuccinos- I like lattes, mochas, and anything with vanilla in its name. In essence, I know what they are- all the times I’ve been in Starbucks,…

Stovetop Apple Spice Cake

You know the drill. I wanna make a cake. I make the batter for a cake. My oven is broken. I forgot about the broken oven. I have to do SOMETHING with the batter. I dump it in a mini pot on the stove. It burns a bit around the edges, but honestly, in this…

No-Bake Cheesecake

Let me tell you a little story. There was cream cheese about to go bad. And I wanted cheesecake. So, I decided to make cheesecake. Y’all with me so far? Good. So, I arrange all my ingredients. I’ve decided to make a classic cheesecake with berries on top. I’ve taken my ingredient shot, when I…

Cake Mix Cake (But Don’t Tell Anyone)

Right. Here’s how it went down. I, the ultimate food snob, made a cake mix cake. It wasn’t on purpose. It was going to go bad! And I wanted cake without putting any real effort into it. Holiday stress is getting to me. Well, my stress isn’t really caused by the holidays, but if I’m…

Mexican Chocolate Caramel Cake

In a cookbook I read a little while ago, there was a cake called “The winning hearts and minds cake”, so called because it, well, won hearts and minds. This cake is like that- except more. I’m talking 10,000 times more. Normally, I attempt to hide my narcissism, but I’m not even going to try….

Ginger Cake- Central African Republic

So, I was looking for a recipe from the Central African Republic, which can be pretty difficult if you have no cassava or manioc. But then I found this ginger cake! I loved it’s simplicity. See, when there’s not many ingredients, it’s just that much easier to mix it up! And this cake, even in…

Biscuit Cake

This is one of my mom’s recipes. I don’t post them very often, but after trying out this recipe, I think I should. I was trying to find a way to use the chocolate buttercream I made yesterday, and although when she suggested it I was skeptical, it’s turned out to be one of the…
