2 Ingredient Flourless Nutella Cake I am so so so excited to share this recipe with you today that I created. Yes, it’s only 2 ingredients. And I mean really two ingredients. Not one of those recipes that say two or three ingredients and then one of the ingredients is something like “pre-made dough” or “cake mix.” (Not that there is anything wrong with those recipes.) All you need is Nutella and eggs. With only two ingredients, it’s so simple to make. And the taste? Here are some updated photos from a recent version where I did 1 1/2 times the recipe to get a taller cake. I haven’t been this excited about a recipe since I made my bacon fried eggs or my nutella lava cookies. For more Nutella recipes, you can check out my collection here. Notes: So there’s been a lot of comments on this post and while many people have made it successfully, there have been a few people who complain their cake tastes “eggy” or it didn’t work. * Finally, give the cake sufficient time to cool and rest.

Baked Cheater Churros Baked Cheater Churros Oops, I meant to update two days ago but I had so much going on! My sister and her boyfriend came up to visit over the weekend, my DB had his law school ball, and I’m traveling all over the states.

Strawberry 2 Ingredient Fudge This 2 Ingredient Strawberry Fudge has consistently been one of the most popular recipes on my site! It’s sweet and creamy and SUPER simple to make! So Valentines Day is coming up. We aren’t big Valentines people in our house. Not that I don’t WANT Valentines stuff. I mean, if my husband came home with flowers and chocolates and jewelry I certainly wouldn’t turn him away. But the thing is, one of our kids has a birthday on Valentines, so I lose. Valentines is now, “all about the children”…much like EVERY OTHER DAY OF MY LIFE! So instead of romance, I get Star Wars Lego assembly and video games and instead of a candlelit dinner, I get kid’s choice, which many years has meant McDonalds. I mean, can you imagine that they can choose any place to eat dinner and they choose McDonalds? So, yeah, kids ruin everything. Moving forward, remember a few months ago when I was all angry at the universe for keeping fudge secrets from me? Well, the universe and I are officially BFFs again. We made up. Or hearts.
Soda Can Cupcakes These crazy simple Soda Can Cupcakes involve only a can of soda and a box of cake mix! It’s magic! I am all about a shortcut and these cupcakes are the epitome of shortcuts!! I while back I made this cake. It had 2 ingredients and was really delicious…So we’re gonna do that again today. All you need are 2 things…cake mix and a can of soda. Seriously! Why in the world would I ever use eggs and oil again? I saw this idea on Pinterest, but apparently I forgot to Pin it and searching again and again I couldn’t find the source…but I did a quick google search and found that it’s all over, so I don’t feel so bad. Soda Can Cupcakes. Here’s what you need…. I used Funfetti and Cranberry Splash Sierra Mist. **I know you are going to ask this…I don’t know if this works with diet soda. Here’s all you do… Pour a can of soda into your dry cake mix. Using a whisk, mix your cake mix and soda until most of the lumps are gone. I will look like this… Fill your lined muffin tins about 1/2 – 2/3 full of batter. Notes
No-Bake "Food Storage" Granola Bars ($0.08 each) $0.11 each 50% savings save $61.70 yearly "If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear." Now THAT is some sound advice. That uncertainty is a big reason my family has an extra storage of food supplies at home. Stocking up months worth of basic food items might sound strange/fanatical to some, but it gives me peace of mind to know that if something bad ever happened and if, for whatever reason, it became difficult to obtain food, we'd be okay... or if we lost our income... or, if something happened to our friends or neighbors we'd be able to help them out. We store things like wheat (that I grind into flour at home), oats, dried beans, dried pasta, jarred pasta sauce, peanut butter, boxed cereal, canned fruits/veggies, extra baking supplies, etc. The other day I was looking for new ways to use oats (besides cookies, oatmeal, and breads). So, why make your own when there are already a ton of granola bars on the market covered in sweet chocolate and filled with gooey caramel or peanut butter?

two-ingredient maple soufflé I know, I know. You read that post title and thought to yourself, Katy is clearly messing with us this morning. And then you thought, Seriously, Katy? You got us all excited for what is obviously some kind of very cruel joke, because who on this planet can craft a soufflé out of two ingredients? Well, I can. But… I suppose if you really want it that much. It sounds weird to pair eggs with maple syrup, but eggs in soufflés are essentially an invisible ingredient — they give structure and density to something that otherwise tastes like flavored air (in fact, if your soufflés taste like egg, you’re probably overcooking them). You may notice that in this recipe, I don’t ask you to butter and sugar the ramekins. Please. two ingredient maple soufflé recipe INGREDIENTS 2 eggs 1/3 cup maple syrup (I use Grade A Dark Amber) DIRECTIONS Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together the two egg yolks and maple syrup until evenly distributed. Serves 4.
Advent Day 8: Eggnog Muffins I created this recipe after seeing Ice Cream Bread on thekitchn.com. I figured if one could make that bread using ice cream, then why not use eggnog in place of ice cream- it’s eggs, sugar, and milk too. These little muffins are a breeze to make and a serendipitous discovery as well. Eggnog Muffins1 1/2 cups self-rising flour**2 cups regular eggnog, not lite or lowfat In a large liquid measuring cup, measure 2 cups eggnog. Eggnog Icing1/2 cup powdered sugar2 1/2 tsp. eggnogfresh ground nutmeg for sprinkling, optional Mix well. **If you do not have self-rising flour, for every one cup of all purpose flour add 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt. Note- I made the first batch of muffins in cupcake liners and felt they were a bit difficult to release from the paper. Can also be baked up in one dozen greased, 4 ounce jelly Mason Jars in 18 minutes! Come back tomorrow for Day 9.
Chess Squares When I was in New York a few weeks ago we stopped by one of the most unique bakeries I’ve ever visited, Momofuku Milk Bar. Noted for their unusual concoctions like cookies made with potato chips, birthday cake truffles, and cereal milk ice cream, I’d been wanting to visit Momofuku’s and try a slice of their famous Crack Pie since I came across the recipe in the LA Times last year. The thought did cross my mind that I could actually, you know, make the recipe myself, but one thing kept stopping me. It’s decidedly fussy. With 22 ingredients (including 8 egg yolks, ugh) and the advertised one-and-a-half hours of labor-intensive preparation, I just kept putting the whole thing off. When I did finally get the chance to taste it two weeks ago, I immediately flashed back to my college days when my girlfriends and I would flounce around in the kitchen, throwing dinner parties for our boyfriends, and making sinfully sweet treats for church Bible studies. Oh right. Gooey Butter Cake. Doh. Doh.
Easy Oreo Mint Chip Ice Cream Cake I love the idea of serving ice cream in fun ways. And this one is just that. A fun and easy no-bake mint chip ice cream cake! Yes and yum! And it doesn’t hurt that it’s stuffed with mint Oreo cookies either. They’re in the crust, in the “cake” and on top too. Want to make one? Okay good! Mix the crumbs with melted butter and then press into the bottom of a 7-inch springform pan. Time for the ice cream. It’s not my fave…my first choice would be chocolate of course… but it’s a fun flavor for St. Spread a layer of ice cream on top of the cookie crust base. Add in some oreos and then layer on more ice cream almost to the top edge of the pan. Then layer on some whipped topping and place in the freezer for at least three hours. Note: Next time I would break all the cookies into pieces to make the cake easier to cut. When you are ready to serve, unclasp the springform ring to slide it off from around the cake. Then just separate the plastic wrap from the base to serve. Just slice… And bite! Ingredients
Kiss Pies Only 5 days before Christmas! Woohoo, is everyone ready? What a great time of year. This really is the best…..even if I feel like I’ve gained 50 lbs the last month! I’ve got such a fun little pie to share with you today that really couldn’t get any easier. I am talking 2 main ingredients people I decided to use the rest of my Mint truffle Kisses, but ANY Hershey kiss will work beautifully here. Hope you enjoy! Here you have it, some refrigerated pie crust and any Hershey Kisses I used these bad boys! Unroll your pie crust after it’s been thawed and place the first group your kisses around like so. You’ll cut a 2 1/2- 3 inch circle for each kiss. You’ll brush a light egg wash over each little pie…. ….and sprinkle with sugar. Trying to do this with one hand while taking the photo=dumping of sugar, lol! Here they are, I seriously love these! Awhhhh, look at these little Kiss Pies Little cuties.
