Reheat covered at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until warmed through. Uncover and glaze. Razzle-dazzle: This one recipe makes two 9-inch pans of rolls. Bake […]

These brownies are decadent! And they are delicious straight from the pan, especially if brushed with Kahlua while cooling.

Applesauce Spice Cake

This is my husband’s favorite cake, easy to assemble any month of the year because it relies on applesauce. Use unsweetened or sweetened – whatever you have on hand. And if you want to dress up the presentation, make a quick glaze whisking together 1 cup confectioners’ sugar and 2 tablespoons milk or lemon juice […]

Bette’s Chocolate Kahlua Sauce

What I love about this recipe is that it pulls together quickly from a handful of ingredients. And stored in the fridge, it keeps 10 days to two weeks. Store it in empty clean jelly jars and canning jars. For an easy and decorative topper for those pint-size canning jars, place a paper cupcake liner […]

One of the most popular Cake Mix Doctor recipes, Gooey Butter Cake is the signature cake of St. Louis where it was invented in the 1930s. Many variations of this cake exist, both from-scratch and using a cake mix. What makes my version appealing is that it is faster to prepare using a mix. The […]

Gluten-Free Saucepan Brownies Recipe

Naturally gluten-free, these brownies are so fudgy, chewy, and chocolaty, you’ll never miss the flour. That’s because the cocoa and cornstarch in the recipe give just the right amount of structure to the brownies. The flavor comes from the butter, cocoa, vanilla, and chocolate chips. And the ease comes from making them in one pan […]
