Be still my little mouse heart: This is the best chocolate cake I’ve ever made.
This French Cheesecake is my favorite Secret Weapon Dessert. Easy to make. Easy on the eyes. Practically guaranteed to stun everyone—including your best friend’s chatty new girlfriend—at your dinner party into blissful, dessert-nibbling silence. This recipe comes from an old family friend. In fact, a bunch of you requested the recipe when I first posted […]butter, cheesecake, cream cheese, raspberry
Hey, you! (Yeah, you!) Summer’s coming. Let’s go to the playground! Oh, or maybe the roller rink. Or both. Sorry…this cake makes me feel like I’m about 12 years old again. And I’m loving it. (Slumber party, anyone?) This is one of the best chocolate cake recipes I have, hands down. It’s also one of […]baking, cake, chocolate, eggless

I prefer mine plain with […]butter, cake, dessert, eggs, sugar
Let me start by saying: This is kind of ridiculous. Let me also say: I know how to make homemade chocolate cake. In the oven. Ask The Angry Chef, my mother, or my friends. I can make simple ones or elaborate ones. I can make complicated cakes with layers and fillings that are piled high […]baking, cake, chocolate, chocolate cake, microwave, oddities
I swear I’ll post a salad recipe one of these days. I do eat green things. Honest. This cake is one of my all-time favorites. It’s dense, moist, and rich. It’s not a molten cake, but it’s plenty gooey with pudding-y goodness (call it a cross between cake and fudge). It’s bursting with four different […]cake, chocolate
