Glazed Lemon Cake

Yes, I did buy the big bag of lemons at Costco. 🙂 So now I need to use them up! This cake recipe is for a light cake with a lemony glaze on top. If you like lemon you will love this cake. Lemon Cake Cream together: 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup canola oil 1…

Red Velvet Cupcakes

  Red Velvet Cupcakes are generally adored by all but the thought of adding that much red food colouring (up to 2 tbsp!) makes me a little nervous. So, I went in search of a natural red food dye and did not come up with anything in my local city except beet root powder. The…

Carrot Cake

I had carrot cake over Christmas and thought it would be a great cake to try and make eggless. The cake I had used crushed pineapple and coconut along with walnuts. My family is not too keen on pineapple or coconut so I left them out and I did use pecans as I had some…

Apple Cake

Nothing much tops the smell of apples and cinnamon baking in something heavenly or simmering on the stove turning into applesauce. I had a bag of apples and instead of the usual apple crisp I decided to make an apple cake. I used my best white cake recipe which has cream cheese in it and…

Boston Cream Cake

I am not much for messing with deep frying but my husband loves doughnuts and every once and a while I feel guilty that my son can’t go to Tim Horton’s and have a doughnut so I make some. This is another doughnut recipe, this time a cake doughnut recipe. My other doughnut recipe is…

Best White Cake

I wanted another white cake recipe to have with fresh berries but this time I wanted to use real butter. This can be difficult when making a white cake as the butter tends to make things crumbly. So, I added in some cream cheese to help keep the cake together and the flavor of course…

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

My 12 year old son wanted to make me a cake for Mother’s Day. Let me follow that up with the fact that I don’t like people in my kitchen. I’m a bit of a control freak that way :). And since he is not very experienced it takes him forEVER to make anything. However,…
