A lovely, layered dessert known as a “magic cake” has been pipping up on blogs all over the place lately.

Try next time full recipe. And after that with a lemon zest. Halved recipe and still worked fine. (TOven) cooked a little bit less time ( 5-15 minutes less) because of that. Wonderful recipe, really simple but with an amazing texture. Sorta like a custardy cheesecake. AMAZING. Experiment with cooking times to have it more custardy. Not much sugary, just the right amount. Serve with whipped cream and strawberries(Momo also liked with maple syrup) 2nd attempt. Tried whole in a bigger pan (not squared). Works perfectly. Less time cooked, tons custardy!! Amazing. It just seems to brown very easily on the top but that can also be because of TOven Try next time in the right pan and with lemon zest or other flavour. – ifihadadollar4everytimeiopenanaccount

The cake is a dessert which magically turns itself into layers of cake and custard while baking in the oven, and it reminds me a lot of an impossible pie.

(to keep, try again whole, awesome and simple, family recipe)Buttermilk Magic Cake

Impossible pie is a type of custardy dessert that has a small amount of flour in it which allows a distinct “crust” to form during baking and give the pie two layers with very little work. Magic cake works in a very similar way, but has the custard on the bottom, rather than on the top like the impossible pie. Magic cake is quite easy to make and this version of it uses buttermilk for a wonderfully tangy, buttery flavor that is addictive.

The cake starts by mixing up a thin batter, using a relatively small amount of flour for a cake batter, then egg whites are folded in to it. The vanilla and buttermilk cake is delicious, with a dense and custardy texture that you won’t find in any other kind of cake. Preheat oven to 325F. (to keep)Red Curry Chicken. This red curry chicken is as easy as cooking gets.

(to keep)Red Curry Chicken

After making the miraculously simple 15-minute Coconut Curry Noodle Soup recipe a few months ago, I realized what a magical ingredient canned curry paste is. It adds a ton of flavor with minimal effort––emphasis on minimal. This recipe has fewer than 10 ingredients, takes less than a half hour to make, and it’s a one pot meal worthy of any weeknight. If you’re wondering where to find red curry paste, head to any Asian grocery store, and look for a little red can labeled…you guessed it––red curry paste. Cantonese Pan-Fried Rice Noodle Rolls with Dried Shrimp (煎蝦米腸粉) Ah, fried noodle rolls (煎蝦米腸粉), that brings back some sweet childhood memories when I was living in Hong Kong.

Cantonese Pan-Fried Rice Noodle Rolls with Dried Shrimp (煎蝦米腸粉)

I remember it was one of my older sister's favorites and she would have to get this when we went to the Chinese Dim Sum restaurant on the weekends. In China, people typically enjoy this dish during breakfast time. Since it's made from rice with simple ingredients, it's versatile and can be stuffed with any ingredient of your choice.

It is a very popular street food there for everyone. Rice noodle rolls are basically made from flat, thin rice noodle sheets. Spiced Lentils and Rice. Spiced but not spicy, this Middle Eastern-inspired lentils and rice recipe gets its rich flavor from cinnamon, cloves, and cumin.

Spiced Lentils and Rice

This is a “throw it all into your rice cooker and walk away” recipe. I’ve recently started experimenting with putting foods other than rice into the rice cooker, and I love not having to watch over it as it cooks. The one I own is a super-cheapie Black & Decker with two settings, Cook and Warm. I’m not exactly thrilled with its performance, so I suggest getting a more expensive, fuzzy-logic type of rice cooker if you can afford it. If not, the inexpensive ones work well, though I’ve found that I absolutely have to spray or brush the bottom of mine with oil, or it spits viscous, white droplets out of its vent-hole as it cooks, covering my upper cabinets and counter tops with rice spittle. Ridiculously Easy Lentil Soup. This quick and easy vegan lentil soup tastes like it’s cooked for hours, but with a pressure cooker, it can be on the table in about 30 minutes.

Ridiculously Easy Lentil Soup

Regular stovetop directions are included. May is the month when I generally give up on opening our screened windows and settle into the reality of air conditioning. While not as hot as the sauna that is June or the pressure cooker that is July and August, the end of May usually gives us Mississippians a good taste of the summer heat to come. But May can surprise us with some rare cool nights and sunny but mild days, which is what was going on this week, the last week of school for my daughter…and of freedom for me. Well, relative freedom. Easy, Spiced, Chickpea Potato Patties (Vegetarian) Potatoes and Lentils unite in these delicious little, spiced, vegetarian Easy Lentil Potato Patties patties – best eaten on a bed of greens with some avocado cream sauce and Sambal Oelek.

Easy, Spiced, Chickpea Potato Patties (Vegetarian)

My daughter fell in love with all that she saw during our short stay in Oregon, earlier this month. She fell so hard that she’s convinced there’s no place quite like it (at this point in her life, am just glad she fell for a place and not a person). And, I understand. I loved hiking the foggy, overgrown trails around Short Sands Beach and the trails around Multnomah Falls just as much as she did.

But, as far as waterfalls go, Amicalola Falls here in North Georgia, has Multnomah Falls beat – at least, in my humble opinion. From its top to its bottom, Amicalola Falls is said to plunge more than 729 feet, that is supposedly more than four times the height of Niagara Falls and 100 feet more than Multnomah Falls! 1-Pot Vegetable Green Curry. This 1-pot curry is made in 30 minutes with ingredients you likely have on hand right now.

Plus, the vegetable and protein options are customizable. Let us show you how it’s done! Spicy squash salad with lentils and goat cheese. Odds are, this week is full of sugar for you.

spicy squash salad with lentils and goat cheese

Chewy sugar, hard shiny sugar, sugar molded into candy corn, fluffed into marshmallows, coating adorable little popsicles of cake, wound with brown butter around grains of puffed rice and that doesn’t even include the peanut butter cups you’ll pilfer from your kid’s trick-or-treat bucket this weekend followed by the sweet slide from Thanksgiving’s marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes and December’s minty candy canes.

I, for one, could really go for a salad right now. I’ve been roasting a lot of squash and sweet potatoes lately, usually for the half-toothed member of our family and one day, I was looking to turn it into more of a fall salad and I stumbled upon a recipe from Bon Appetit. I nixed the arugula because the stuff I found at the market was spotty, and anyway, (gripe alert!) The results are deceptively filling: this is main-course salad material, as it should be. Butternut squash and caramelized onion galette. I love fall.

butternut squash and caramelized onion galette

I mean, I know how decidedly unoriginal that is to say, but I can’t help it. I just want to inhale it, take a picture of every flame-thrown tree, mull over all of its cider and crunch through all of its dried leaves. I have been fortunate enough to marry someone who feels exactly the same way, but the only problem is figuring out how to make fall longer than it is and that solution, my friends, is to drive north to catch the early show.

Cabbage and mushroom galette. I don’t think I have ever met a galette I didn’t like.

cabbage and mushroom galette

In fact, my only grievance is that I do not have more galette recipes on this site. Two years ago there was a wild mushroom and stilton galette and last year there was a butternut squash and caramelized onion galette but since then? Nada. Let me serve to fix that right now. Cauliflower cheese. What, you’ve never had cauliflower cheese before? Why, it’s right up there on the American Heart Association’s recommended diet, above the kale and below the oat bran. Okay, well, maybe just the cauliflower is. Black Bean Quinoa Salad with Orange Lime Dressing. Anytime we return home from traveling, I crave big leafy salads and all of the green smoothies. My body misses the 24-hour veggie stream it usually receives when I’m home and in control of my diet. So when we got back from our respective trips last week, the first thing I added to our meal plan was a big Mexican-inspired salad.

So healthy, filling, and fresh – just what we both needed. We have a pretty standard taco salad we like to eat that includes black beans, guacamole, greens, tomato, onion, lime juice and salsa. But sometimes it’s good to switch things up. Mediterranean Lentil Dip. Can you ever really have too many dips in your life? I think not. Care for one more? I hope so, because I have the simplest, most flavorful Mediterranean-inspired dip loaded with healthy ingredients + protein. Lentil Kale Curry Salad With Roasted Vegetable. This is the salad of my dreams. Crunchy kale with lentils and a creamy tahini sauce, roasted curry vegetables, and a tangy green curry dressing. The ultimate plant-based salad is happening. You need this recipe in your life. Curried Lentil Sweet Potato Bowl.

A nourishing, hearty bowl that’s perfect when you’re craving takeout but want something healthier instead. Plus, it’s ready in just 30 minutes! Let’s make curry bowls, friends. This bowl is inspired by my Coconut Curried Golden Lentils, which are insanely flavorful and ready in 20 minutes. And they pair perfectly with the flavors going on in this dish. In addition to lentils, I decided on cauliflower rice, easy roasted sweet potatoes, and steamed kale. I hope you all LOVE this bowl. Creamy Mango Lassi Smoothie. When eating out, I’m often unable to enjoy the chai latte and mango lassi on menus because they contain dairy. 30-Minute Moroccan-Spiced Lentils. Lentils know no bounds. They’re the perfect high-protein, high-fiber food that take on just about any flavor you add to them.
