2015-02-26-4082 Salted Caramel Banana Cake

Warm buttery cake with the wonderful flavors of banana, chocolate and salted caramel perfectly balanced! Sound good?

This cake is perfect for when you want to impress but you don’t want to be fussing over dessert. There are only so many hours in the day! Right? :)

If you have bananas around the house that have browned, this is the cake to make. Enjoy my friends!

The chocolate morsels may look a bit larger than usual because they are. They’re chocolate caramel Delightfulls. In case you haven’t used them yet they are a slightly larger morsel, because they have a filled center. So they pretty much have to be a little bigger. For this cake I used chocolate-caramel morsels.

They’re kind of fun to work with because it’s an easy way to get two flavors a the same time.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake is the perfect cake to celebrate any day of the week!

Peanut butter and chocolate make this cake pretty much perfect in my book! It’s perfect for bringing to a special event, family gatherings, birthday parties, pretty much any occasion you can think of!

Once it has dried, this cake transports very well!

Hope you enjoy! 2015-01-12-3736 For this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake I used Toll House Chocolate and Peanut Butter DelightFulls. That’s why the chips may appear slightly larger than usual, because they are. [Read more…]

My Frosted Cookie Cake Pie has all those wonderful flavors loved by everyone! It’s not too often you get pie, cake, cookie, buttercream frosting and sprinkles in one dessert! :)

Frosted Cookie Cake Pie is one of those things we’ve probably all thought about trying at one time or another. Or maybe something along this line anyway.

I have been thinking about it for a while, so it seemed like time to make my own version, and I’m glad I did the kids absolutely LOVED it!

If you are not familiar, Cookie Cake Pie is just as wonderful as it sounds! I went with more of a Halloween look and feel, being that it is that time of year! So, for my Frosted Cookie Cake Pie you start with a frozen deep dish pie crust, add your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough, then pour in bright orange cake batter (for Halloween of course) and bake! Let it cool completely, frost and add all the fun Halloween sprinkles you want to!

Applesauce Muffin Cake

Applesauce Muffin Cake_2617

My Applesauce Muffin Cake is a fantastic back to school breakfast or snack to make for the kids! They will love it!

Be sure to follow me on Pinterest!  

Applesauce Muffin Cake_2617

Applesauce, cinnamon, and muffins are always a winning combination! According to my tasters (myself included) this one is a winning combination, especially with just the right amount of my vanilla glaze on top!

You could easily put this together the night before and in the morning you’re set for a wonderful breakfast. The kids and husband will love it, and everyone’s happy! Such a nice way to start the day. :)

Or if you prefer, you can put a few slices in a container to take to work with you to share with your favorite co-workers. You will make their day!

Enjoy!

AMC_2610

Honestly, what makes this muffin cake so moist and wonderful is the applesauce. Like they say, if you want a great recipe start with great ingredients!

Trust me when I say, this has nothing to do with price! We’re talking about good, quality applesauce that you normally enjoy as is!

AMC_2613

For this recipe, I started off with Taste of Home’s Applesauce Muffin Recipe. However, I wanted to make this even more special so I added a light crumble layer and a little vanilla glaze. A blogger has to play, right?

AMC_2627

This applesauce muffin cake is amazingly delicious! The recipe I started with is delicious by itself, but after adding the light crumble layer and the vanilla glaze it just takes the muffin cake to a whole new level of wonderful!

If you don’t eat the entire muffin cake at one time that’s just fine, it will keep. However, I do strongly recommend that if you reheat the cake one slice at a time, reheat in the microwave as desired, then add the glaze.
