St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

I’ve made St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake on this site more than once. But honestly, what’s one more recipe? In fact, this is the best recipe that I’ve tried yet. This recipe baked how it was supposed to, without being overdone, on the first try.

Maryland Fudge Cake

Every now and then, I come across the perfect recipe just when I am looking for it. Sometimes I see a recipe and think, “I should make that sometime.” Other times I come across a recipe and think, “I can make that tonight!” or “I […]

Nutella Cheesecake

I was going to make something for a going-away party, and when I asked what the guest of honor’s favorite desserts were, her friends all said that she loved chocolate and peanut butter, Nutella, and the Brownie Cheesecake that I made last month. So it […]

Brownie Cheesecake

Brownie Cheesecake

I rediscovered this brownie cheesecake when I was going through my recipes to make something for Alex’s birthday (ultimately, a chocolate caramel cheesecake) a few months ago. I honestly don’t remember when I first made this – it could have been years ago, could have been […]

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Since I posted last, the weather took an unseasonable turn. We had a weekend in the 70s! Most of another week was in the 60s. I took Amelia on walks and to parks several days to let her burn off some of her endless 2-year-old […]

Chocolate Sheet Cake

Chocolate Sheet Cake

My mom has had a recipe in her recipe box for a chocolate sheet cake for as long as I can remember. She kindly texted me a copy of it a few weeks ago when I really, really wanted to make a sheet cake. I […]
