Simple Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles

I am so not ready, not even close. The post-it note hanging from my monitor that I creatively titled “Thanksgiving” has one item written on it – Turkey. Apple and Berry Strudel. Cherry Clafoutis. I’ve always wanted to make a clafoutis, but never had until recently.

Cherry Clafoutis

Something about the name sounds so romantic to me (maybe because it’s French?) , which is odd considering this is really quite an easy, homestyle dessert. What is a clafoutis, you ask? Raspberry Berry Pie Bars. Summer Berry Custard Bars Custard bars with summer berries-yeah, this one will see a few more forms as I play with different fillings.

Bestofcakes: sweets <3. Brownies. Cinnamon Toast Rolls. The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate.

Cinnamon Toast Rolls

I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious. In honor of their ancestry, I call these little gems cinnamon toast rolls, and here’s all you need to make them… Yep. That’s it… some soft white bread, some butter and some cinnamon sugar.

I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago.

Nutella Mug Cake

None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix.

The first time I made this it came out looking more like chocolate molten lava pudding. Of course there’s nothing wrong with pudding, except if you have 8 guests that have paid to eat at your supper club and what is on their plates looks like a big pile of brown mush. Then it’s not such a good thing. I definitely had a ‘what the hell do I do now’ moment when I pulled the ramekin off the cake and the whole thing oozed all over the plate except for a thin crispy crust.

For a moment I thought I would simply call it molten lava pudding.

In fact, I probably have more bread baking supplies and tools than some bakeries and with that came a serious addiction to the King Arthur Flour website.
