Today I decided to flip them out of the mini muffin pan and use the bottom as the top. Why? Just kind of felt like it. You can use them however you want to!


There is wax paper down there to catch the extra glaze that drips down. It makes clean up so much easier.


Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Bites

Ingredients:  2015-04-16-5248

1 regular size lemon cake mix

3-1/2 oz. package instant lemon pudding mix

4 large eggs

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup water

1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds

2- 1/2 cups powdered sugar

4-5 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

Lemon juice

Rainbow sprinkles, or any bright sprinkle


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two – 24 cup mini muffin pans well with cooking spray. Using a stand mixer, or handheld mixer blend cake mix, lemon pudding mix, eggs, oil, water and poppy seeds. Mix well, for at least 2 minutes.

2. Fill each mini muffin cup 2/3 full, filling all 48 muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Empty onto wire rack so that the top is now the bottom, or keep them right side up.

3. For the glaze, place powdered sugar into a large bowl. Drizzle lemon juice stirring until smooth and desired consistency. If you would like a thinner glaze you can add water; do so by adding 1/2 tablespoon of water at a time. Or more lemon juice can be used.

With your fingers or tongs, dip the top of the cake bites (which were the bottom in the pan) covering the entire surface. Place on wire racks lined with wax paper to catch any drips. Immediately add sprinkles to top (the bottom in the pan), if using. Let the cake bites stand until glaze is set completely.

Makes 48 cake bites.

Glazed Chocolate Donut Holes


My Glazed Chocolate Donut Holes make the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert! Moist, dense and of course chocolaty delicious. :)

2015-02-15-4468 Glazed Chocolate Donut Holes

You guys…these donut holes are crazy delicious and they are baked not fried, so nothing to feel guilty about right? Lol!

These donut holes really are so easy to prepare! Don’t worry about needing a donut hole pan, just make them in a mini muffin pan.

Truth be told, the only reason I used a donut hole pan is because I got a couple as a gift last year. These donut holes are so easy to make in a regular mini muffin pan, that’s how I usually do it at home. Today I just felt like changing it up a bit.


The center of these donut holes is moist, dense and wonderful! If you look close enough you can almost see the mini chocolate chips baked into the donut hole.

Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Donut Holes_009

These wonderful little donut holes are baked, not fried, and they are such a special treat!

We love donuts here, they come in second only to cookies. You know those wonderful little packs of donut holes you can buy? I’m going to explain how you can make a very similar donut hole at home.

These are light, fluffy, sweet, and have a wonderful chocolate flavor, with just the right amount of peppermint mocha. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again. I like peppermint in moderation. I wanted a donut hole where you taste the chocolate flavor first, and then the peppermint mocha, and that’s what I created.

So, if you want a donut hole with a wonderful, balanced flavor, and a perfect homemade glaze, this one’s for you!

strawberry-banana muffin cake

My Strawberry-Banana Muffin Cake is like a strawberry muffin with plenty of mashed banana added, healthy yogurt, and then as you would guess, made in a pan, just like a cake.

My boys went crazy over this muffin cake and even Sir Picky Pants (my youngest) truly enjoyed both the flavor and moisture of this one!

Shhh, don’t tell anyone but I start the recipe with a cake mix. No one will ever know, unless you tell them. :)

Keep this recipe friends – it’s simple and yummy!!

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Mini Loaves with PB Glaze

Peanut Butter Banana Mini Loaves

I can’t wait for you guys to try this Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Glaze. It is so good! As I have said many times, I make a lot of banana bread throughout the year. Really, it’s almost a staple at our house.

Sure there are a lot of great banana bread recipes out there; but I especially like this one because it has all of my favorite elements in it. I took my favorite parts of numerous recipes, put them all together, added a little glaze and I’m happy to say, this is what you get!

Just like any other recipe, you certainly change out any of the ingrdients and these banana mini loaves will turn out just fine.

These also freeze very nicely! Although, if you freeze them, I urge you to wait with the glaze until you thaw them again. That’s one thing I really like about banana bread; it freezes well. These also make a great gift. :)



1 box (15.25 to 18.25 ounces) yellow cake mix

1 package (3.4 ounce) Banana Cream instant pudding

4 eggs, at room temperature

1 cup vanilla almond milk (water also works fine)

1/4 cup oil

1/2 cup Planters Banana Granola Nut Peanut Butter (you can also use regular peanut butter)

1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


1/2 cup powdered sugar

2-3 tablespoons Planters Banana Granola Nut Peanut Butter

2 tablespoons Coffee mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream Creamer (you could use regular instead)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 5 foil mini loaf pans with cooking spray; set aside.

2. Beat cake mix, instant pudding, eggs, water and oil in a large bowl with mixer for two minutes, or until well blended. Add bananas, peanut butter and chocolate chips, mix just until blended.

3. Pour mixture into 5 foil mini loaf pans sprayed with cooking spray.

4. Bake 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. When cool, make the glaze. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients well with a small whisk. Drizzle on top of the banana bread.




MM TIP: I frequently use Planters Banana Granola Nut Peanut Butter in baking, but you don’t have to. Regular peanut butter will work just fine. FYI – occasionally I can find the small jars of the Banana Granola Peanut Butter at the Dollar Store. You might want to check your nearby Dollar Store. :)
