Quick Breads, Muffins and Cakes...Oh My!
Coffee Can Pumpkin BreadBack in the '70's when I was still in high school, my sister's neighbor swore me to secrecy when he gave me this recipe for pumpkin bread. It was, and still is, the best pumpkin bread I have ever had. We baked it in coffee cans back then and I still do now, but occasionally I will bake it in mini-loaf pans as well. I have since seen similar recipes on the Internet, so I guess the cat is out of the bag...
Chocolate Chip Zucchini BreadMy mother-in-law gave me this recipe almost 30 years ago. It was the first time I had tasted zucchini bread and, to this day, it is the only recipe I have ever used. Around the holidays, I like to wrap a loaf in cellophane, tie it with a ribbon and give it as a gift.
Chocolate Cake with Fudge FrostingI originally made this cake with a peanut butter frosting and it is really good. But then I found this fudge frosting recipe and combined with this cake it was fabulous! This is the most requested item to make for work.
18 Carrot Snack CakeNeed just a little cake? Here, I adapted an old recipe for carrot cake to make just an 8" sized cake. I actually counted out 18 mini carrots, just so I could call it an 18 carrot cake!
Peach Schnapps CakeSometimes you just need to make something out of a box. I don't remember where the recipe came from, but the end result is really good. WARNING: Plan on taking it somewhere else as soon as you have made it---don't put yourself in the position of being left alone with this cake.
My Favorite Coffee CakeThis coffee cake recipe has been in the family for years. I often take great liberties with it by swapping out ingredients. Try changing the flavors of the cake mix and the pudding, or swirl in some chocolate syrup instead of cinnamon/sugar. However you change it up, it will be sure to please!
Orange Scented Sweet Potato Pound CakeI was on a mission to find new and different ways to use my beloved sweet potatoes. Here I made a delicious light and moist sweet potato pound cake with hints of orange, ginger and cardamom.....perfect for Spring!
"Holy Moly Guacamole" Avocado CupcakesWho knew that combining an avocado and a lemon cake mix could be so delicious?!!
Toffee-Banana BreadI'm not entirely fond of everyday banana bread, so I tend to monkey around (pun intended) with the recipes. Here, I added some chocolate covered toffee chips....yummy!
Chocolate-Pumpkin CupcakesI found a fabulous 4-layer chocolate pumpkin cake recipe that wowed everyone. Here, I made the cake into cupcakes, added a buttercream frosting and topped it with a little candy corn. Very cute. Very tasty.
Red Velvet CupcakesMy MIL asked me to make these many weeks ago and I finally got to it. I searched the Internet and combined what I thought sounded best. In the end, I topped them with a buttercream frosting, but a nice cream cheese frosting would be good, too.
Banana Bars with Cream Cheese FrostingMy husband and I have always loved those frozen Sarah Lee banana cakes. They disappeared for a long time, and though I do see them in the stores again, this recipe is even better. I know this because my husband said so. :)
Pineapple Muffins with Coconut StreuselI just love the pineapple flavored Greek yogurt and was pretty sure it would make a tasty muffin. I was right!
