Strawberries and Cream Cake Squares

When I was making this dessert, I was thinking these would turn out more like cookie bars, but they’re actually pretty cake-y. They’re a little bit cake and a little bit cookie bar, so I decided to call them Strawberries and Cream Cake Squares. You definitely need to eat these squares with a fork, so I guess that makes them a little more cake than cookie!

Cherry Dump Cake

After cleaning my kitchen cupboards, I found I had a box of yellow cake mix and several cans of cherry pie filling—exactly what I needed to make Cherry Dump Cake! If you’ve never had this before, it’s quite a treat and sooooo easy to make! To me, it’s a little more like a cherry crisp than a cake, but whatever you call it, it’s yummy! The recipe also calls for some butter and almond (or vanilla) extract, which I pretty much always have on hand.

Never-Fail Sweet Potato Pie

This is the recipe for the first sweet potato pie I ever made. I don’t make pies often, so I needed an easy recipe, and I found it at a site called the Sager Creek Vegetable Company (the site is no longer up, so I can’t link to it). This recipe makes three, yes three, sweet potato pies, so it’s perfect if you’re needing to make lots of pies for the holidays!

These Mini Apple Bundts are big on apple flavor, with diced fresh apples, cinnamon applesauce, and apple juice mixed into the batter, making a tasty treat that is so good and moist! Another plus is that they’re easy to make—a box of yellow cake mix is used in this recipe too!

Frosted Chocolate Chip Mocha Brownies

I’m a big mocha fan—how about you? I’m a big brownie fan, too, so you’d think I would have made mocha brownies a long time ago. I finally got around to making them, after finding a recipe on the Community® Coffee Blog called Grandma W’s Extra Chocolaty Frosted Mocha Brownies. I modified that recipe slightly by adding mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter and making my frosting a little thicker. They turned out soooo good! These brownies are rich and very chocolaty, with a great hint of coffee flavor! The perfect dessert for all of you chocolate and coffee lovers out there!
