As a kid, I absolutely adored pound cake, dense, moist and buttery rich pound cake. I mean, c'mon, what's not to love?! But as I grew older, I found plenty of things to not love of my beloved pound cakes. For starters, the astronomical fat and calorie content!
Although I like to pretend I”m from the South (3 years counts, right, right?!) the y’all isn’t in the title for that reason. In fact, it’s more of a tell tale sign of what this cake was SUPPOSED to be. Now, let me first state that this cake is effing amazing, pardon my French. I mean, how can anything with peanut butter and whole wheat flour not be?
This cake has happy childhood memories written all over it. When Mom would make Judi’s Creme de Menthe Cake , it didn’t matter the season, it always felt like a holiday. My mom was always known for having some Chocolate Mint Brownies stashed away in the freezer. For emergencies, ya know. That flavor combo is still one of her favorites, and I can’t help but think of her every time I see it. So it comes as no surprise that this cake, a recipe she got from our farm neighbor and friend, Judi Fritz, was made quite often at our house.
Green Velvet Cheesecake Cake St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon, and because I have a very Irish (& proud of it) husband– it’s my duty to share a few St. Paddy’s Day recipes. I know, I know… here she goes again with the cheesecake cakes, right?
Mardi Gras kicks off next week, so it's time to grab your beads, stock up on hurricane mixes and get all your ingredients to make a sinfully delicious King Cake! However, just a sliver of traditional King Cake can set you back 500 calories and 15 grams of fat! Instead of using up a meal's worth of calories in just dessert, swap your traditional King Cake recipe for this lighter one instead! This King Cake recipe is made with applesauce and oil instead of butter and filled with light cream cheese, so this moist, flavorful cake only tastes indulgent! Plus, the addition of flakey coconut in the filling gives this cake an almost tropical flavor.
