Growing up, this cake was the one at family gatherings. Doesn’t that speak the loudest about a dessert? It’s a pound cake. A chocolate pound cake. The icing makes it a showcase (and it’s what us children wanted to sneak a bite of as we ran by – because it tastes just like fudge!) : Nana’s Famous Chocolate Pound Cake Cake: 2 sticks butter 1/2
I made another recipe found on Pinterest! This scrumptious blueberry breakfast cake I made with egg substitute so Lil’ Buddy could enjoy it too. We mixed it up one night last week as the highlight of breakfast for supper. You must click over to Alexandra’s Kitchen to see her delicious photos. You’ll want to make it too! The recipe here.
No sifting. No alternating. Just put it all in together and bake it. Make this cake and I promise you won’t think the same way about pound cakes ever again.

Then she either cuts it in half for two gifts or fills large muffin tins to make mini pound cakes. A recipe I’ve been making for years is Southern Living’s two-step pound cake. It is so simple to make – just throw it all
I’m sharing our favorite spring green, celebratory cake at $5 Dinners today! Any cake with more than two layers is a special celebratory cake in my cookbook. A spring green cake even more so. At the first sign of brilliant blue skies, I start to think of making my Aunt Kathy’s Lime Cake. Will it be for Easter, Mother’s Day, a birthday or a bridesmaids
We made this last year and it was great! Easy and fun from Everyday Celebrating. Even if it sorta cracked and fell apart because it was made with egg substitute. Even if, because it cracked, we couldn’t ice the whole thing. Still, it made for laughs and a great last-minute-use-up-your-Easter-Peeps easy. We improvised and just slathered the top with the canned icing. Then, we may
