Stout & Chocolate Cheesecake

Stout & Chocolate Cheesecake

With Candied Bacon

Posted on April 17, 2014

Basically I saw this and said the words Stout & Chocolate Cheesecake With Candied Bacon to my husband, the Baron of Baking. Stunned, he stopped everything and slowly turned to me. “Yes” was all he whispered.

That was how this started. Literally seeing the name of this heavenly delight, that is in no way healthy to be honest, and hearing the one word whispered. An affirmation that my husband and I were meant to be. We share a love for bacon, and cheesecake, and chocolate. Yep. I love to cook, he loves to eat. I think I am getting off topic here…

I didn’t exactly have a recipe to start with, so I went with a couple of my favorite recipes and this is what happened.

Smoked Date Squares

Smoked Date Squares

Sweet Snack Food

Posted on April 01, 2014
Smoked Date Squares are a hefty, coffee cake-like delicacy with a satisfying finish. Add a little smoke and you have a grilled delight that is sure to please. You want to use apple, cherry or maple for the smoking because of the sweet qualities of the smoke they produce. The rest of this comes together fairly quickly, and goes the same way. Once sliced and served, it will go fast. The only thing I found odd about these Smoked Date Squares was that they retained their heat for quite some time. I am talking they were still warm 4 or so hours later! (I was letting them cool on the counter)

Cake Pops

Cake Pops

on the Grill

Posted on April 01, 2014
As you know, I love to make things for others’. When there’s an opportunity, say a birthday, then I am right there with some creation that makes people smile. So when it was a co-worker’s birthday, I decided to try my hand at making Cake Pops. I must say, I was a little apprehensive at first, considering my first attempt (I admit it) did not go well indeed. …in fact neither did my second attempt. But you know what they say. “Third time’s the charm”. And charmed it was. They were a big hit! Delicious and fudgey, they turned out pretty fantastic. Here’s how I made Cake Pops on the grill.

Peanut Butter Dream Brownies

Peanut Butter Dream Brownies

A brownie that's so much more!

Posted on March 17, 2014

Peanut Butter Dream is a recipe that I thought of when I made my Minty Fresh for the Baron of Baking. It’s actually in an old issue of the Recipe Club as the exclusive recipe, but it’s just so good that I think the whole world deserves to try it.

I know what you’re thinking. How can this recipe have anything to do with St. Patrick’s Day? It’s not green and there’s definitely no beer in it. It starts with the fact that I was going through my Irish Cuisine Cookbook, looking for inspiration and there was my Minty Fresh in the book! It was called Shamrock Brownies, or something to that effect, but there you go! And the connection is that these Peanut Butter Dream Brownies were something I dreamed up for a birthday while I was making the Minty Fresh.

These Peanut Butter Dream Brownies are absolutely incredible. They’re sweet, and slightly salty, and a small pan will go very far.

Irish Apple Cake

Irish Apple Cake

Delightfully Spiced Cake

Posted on March 17, 2014

Irish Apple Cake is possibly the quintessential Irish dessert. The apples give it sweetness, while the cinnamon and ginger spice it perfectly, and the chopped nuts add texture. This cake can come together in a variety of ways, depending on how you want it to look when you’re done, but one thing that stays the same is the taste.

I made a large bundt cake version of Irish Apple Cake for this recipe and took it to a friend’s to share. The whole thing was gone in under 30 minutes. There were only 6 of us. The fragrance alone had everyone’s eyes rolling back in delight. Make it for yourself and see!

Cinnamon Raisin Doughnuts

Cinnamon Raisin Doughnuts

Celebrate National Doughnut Day

Posted on November 05, 2013
Today is National Doughnut Day! It is actually one of two celebrated. The first being on the first Friday of every June. But, like bacon, the Doughnut is something so delicious that you have to celebrate it more than once a year. (Personally I celebrate bacon every day) Sure you can celebrate the easiest way, by going to a doughnut shop and buying one. But why not have the satisfaction of making your own delicious doughnuts! And delicious they are! These Cinnamon Raisin Doughnuts are spectacular in their sweet and doughy goodness. Glazed with a crackly finish, they burst with taste in your mouth. Make them with traditional cake and pastry flour or go gluten free with this recipe too!

Flourless Smoked Chocolate Cake

Flourless Smoked Chocolate Cake

Dense But Delicious

*Myself and the Baron of Baking (my husband) had an issue that the whites would not stiffen at all. No matter what we did.  There are some reasons that this can happen.

  • Bowl was wet or had debris in it before you put in the egg whites. Make sure that your bowl is clean and completely bone dry before adding the egg whites.
  • Stiff peaks won't form if you got yolk in the whites, even the tiniest amount will throw everything off. Try adding ¼ tsp. of lemon juice or cream of tartar in for every 2 egg whites.
  • Stiff peaks still won't form. Are you using the wrong attachment in the mixer? You need to be using the whisk attachment if you are using a big stand mixer, or a hand mixer. Don't use dough hooks, the "k" attachment or anything but the whisk attachment when making anything like meringue or whipped cream.

So I was not going to crack into another 6 eggs for their whites and try again. The Baron agreed with me. So we folded the egg-white mixture into the chocolate mixture and poured it into the springform pan. There was a little bit of leakage, which was caught by the baking tray that we used under the springform. I was surprised that the cake came out at all, but it was tasty. It did not rise at all, it was dense, but delicious. If the egg whites had come out, it would have been lighter, but just as good.

Next time I want to dress this up with perhaps a ganache, a caramel top, or maybe some sort of peppermint - thing for christmas. What would you top this cake with? Leave a comment and tell us how you would dress up this interesting cake.

Poached Pear Crisp

Poached Pear Crisp

An Autumn Dessert

Posted on September 28, 2013
I was inspired by a photograph on Pinterest when I contemplated this recipe. I started with research into poached pears. I would have just grabbed the common Bartlet pear for this recipe. But thanks to the author and blogger David Lebovitz, who explained in delicious detail, how to properly poach a pear for the best results I chose Bosk. Thus informed and inspired I set out to make a delicious fall dessert. Something that would warm me up and make me smile even though the weather has turned cold. Tell us about your favourite fall dessert in the comments section below!

Apple Pie Egg Rolls

Apple Pie Egg Rolls

Deep Fried

Posted on June 17, 2013
These are a fantastic and different treat. But they’re no good the next day, even if you bake them on the grill to get that crisp back. If you’re making extra that you don’t think you will eat, don’t fry them, but freeze them right away.
