Maple Bundt Cake |

This time of year pumpkin reigns supreme. But seeing as I’m not the biggest fan of pumpkin, I look to other flavors to satisfy my comfy-cozy sweet tooth cravings. Flavors like caramel, brown butter, and maple.

Maple syrup is a staple I always make sure to have in my kitchen. We mostly pour it over our favorite buttermilk pancakes, but occasionally it finds its way into other things too, both sweet and savory. I stumbled across this recipe for a maple bundt cake and I just knew it would be awesome.

And it is! Continue Reading…


Layers of yellow cake filled with a creamy raspberry icing and all covered with white chocolate meringue buttercream is a summertime cake worthy of any occasion.

Raspberry White Chocolate Cake |

In about one month, more or less, I’m going to be a mother of two. I’m excited and nervous, and pretty much feeling everything you’d expect. We are so not ready for baby brother’s arrival (baby clothes are still in storage and too many necessities still haven’t been purchased) but I can’t help but wish he’d come early. Tomorrow, even. I am just so done.

But as anxious as I am to have this baby out, I’m trying to relish these last days before our lives get turned upside down again by a newborn. I’m taking naps, cuddling with my three year-old on the couch while he watches cartoons, and I’m baking up all my cravings.

Yellow cake with a fruity filling and fluffy icing? Done and done. Continue Reading…


Light as air angel food cake scented with coconut and topped with fresh berries. It’s a perfect summer dessert!

Coconut Angel Food Cake with Berries |

Since angel food cake is naturally fat-free, it’s okay that I’ve eaten almost half of this cake in a single day, right?

I just couldn’t help myself. This cake turned out every bit as lovely and delicious as I’d imagined. I’ve had a growing collection of egg white in my fridge that finally needed to be dealt with and a morning free for some impromptu baking, and an angel food cake was calling my name.

It’s rich, creamy and intensely chocolaty, and it couldn’t be easier to make! Plus it’s the perfect topping for cakes, cupcakes and more.

Super easy and decadent fudge buttercream frosting, perfect topping for any cake or cupcake |

Baking and assembling a cake is hard enough without adding a complicated frosting recipe to the mix. Everyone needs a few easy frosting recipes up their sleeve and this is one of my favorites. It always receives rave reviews and every time I whir it up I want to dive in headfirst into the silky chocolate. Although I usually settle for a few finger swipes instead. Continue Reading…


Layers of chocolate wafers, a peanut butter-cream cheese filling, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups make up this simply stunning no-bake icebox cake.

Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter Icebox Cake |

Icebox cakes are my new favorite thing. They’re fun, easy, and require no baking. The only real challenge is patience. Icebox cakes need a good 24 hours or more to work their magic and if you can wait that long, you will be well-rewarded.

The other thing I love about icebox cakes is how versatile they can be. Any flavor and ingredient combination you can dream up is possible. Are you a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup lover like me? Then you’ll fall head over heels for this Reese’s chocolate peanut butter icebox cake. I’ve been dreaming it up for months and last week I finally made it a reality. Continue Reading…
