Chocolate Cake with Raspberry White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting As good as the cake I shared with you yesterday was (and it was mighty good), I simply could not resist pairing that heavenly white chocolate cream cheese frosting with some real chocolate. And since two cakes are certainly better than one, only a week after I made the raspberry cake I went ahead and threw this puppy together. I used the recipe that my friend Lindsay uses for her chocolate ganache cake and it worked beautifully. The frosting tasted just as good on this chocolate cake as it did on the raspberry cake. The subtle flavor of raspberry in the frosting complemented the richness of this classic chocolate cake very nicely. I can’t decide which cake I liked better.

The Perfect Crusting Buttercream I use this recipe when making my rose cake, my hydrangea cake, or any cake that I want the frosting to be able to hold its shape! Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) or to eat during a football game.

Better-Than-Crack-Brownies I’m sorry for doing this to you. I really am. But see, last Friday while I was on a 10-hour road trip heading for vacation, I received this recipe from a reader named Liz. Apartment Therapy The Kitchn - StumbleUpon It didn't totally blow up my radar, however, until only a few weeks ago. I was celebrating a bachelorette with some of my favorite girlfriends at a too-cool-for-school Atlanta restaurant. We had already overindulged in one too many courses of food, but our waiter gently encouraged us to order the sampler platter of desserts. Never one to say no to sweets, I caved against my (stomach's) better judgement.

Wednesday Baking-Ice Cream Crunch Cake This is yet another no-bake recipe for you to use when it’s just too hot to turn on your oven. I found this recipe years ago when I signed up for a Recipe-A-Day email list. It’s not the most frugal recipe ever (brownies or some other baked good will usually be cheaper), but it’s a lot cheaper than a prepared ice cream cake is, especially if you manage to find ice cream on a good sale. This makes a fairly large cake so if you have a small family, you might want to cut the recipe in half.

A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. King Arthur Flour – Baking Banter - StumbleUpon Love brownies. Love their shiny, flaky top that shatters into micro-thin shards that shower onto your fingers as you eat. Love their dark, gooey center. Their “chocolate nirvana” flavor.

It’s made with butter AND cream cheese. It’s dense, chewy, chocolatey and very delicious.
