I’m a big fan of potatoes, whether they’re baked, scalloped, fried, roasted, mashed…you name it! But what about potatoes for dessert…sweet potatoes, that is! That’s where this Sweet Potato Cinnamon Cake comes in, which I found in a cookbook called 300 Best Potato Recipes: A Complete Cook’s Guide. It has lots of different tasty potato recipes in it, from appetizers and soups to main dishes, sides, and desserts. This isn’t a new book—I actually reviewed it a few years ago, and I really loved this recipe from it!
If you like carrot cake, you’ll enjoy this cake. A friend of mine tasted it and said she actually liked it better than carrot cake! It’s wonderfully moist and the cream cheese icing is very yummy. The original recipe says to frost the top and sides of the cake, but I just frosted the top so I Continue reading
If you are a chocolate-lover, here’s a recipe you need to try! This Chocolate Zucchini Snack Cake is a cross between a cake-like brownie and a chocolate cake. It’s so simple, it just has semi-sweet mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top instead of frosting.

I think I like caramel apples so much because of the gooey, buttery caramel and crisp, slightly sweet and tart apples. Yum! What could be better? Maybe nothing. Or maybe this Caramel Apple Coffee Cake. It has yummy bits of caramel and chopped apple, and a sweet, crunchy, brown sugar/oatmeal topping. There’s also some Greek yogurt mixed in the cake batter to make it extra moist. It tastes best served warm, while the caramel bits are still soft and gooey. It makes a sweet autumn breakfast with a hot cup of coffee or tea!
Sometimes you can tell just by reading a recipe that it’s going to be good. That’s how I felt about this recipe when I saw it in an old cookbook from the 80’s, the Nestle® Toll House® Recipe Collection. I first made it several years ago for a breakfast gathering and everyone Continue reading
I recently made these chocolatey mini bundt cakes for a little birthday celebration and I had promised to post the recipe soon…so here it is! These little brownie cakes are great for special celebrations or even just when you want to indulge in a chocolaty treat for yourself. If you eat these little cakes while they’re still warm, the outside is a little crispy, with an inside that’s dense and fudgy.
