Mini Bread Puddings

Mini-Bread-Puddings-recipe-h

I feel like the first thing we need to talk about today is that sauce. I’m going to say the name of it, but I want you to be sitting down first. Ok, are you ready? Brown sugar whiskey caramel sauce. I know. Just roll me out of here when I’m done bathing in it. [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Yeasted Coffee Cake

I partnered with Fleischmann’s® Yeast to bring you this photo series. Thanks for letting me partner with brands to keep the lights on around this place. All opinions, words and photos in this post are my own. I’ve been big on breakfasts lately. Anything warm that I can make the night before and re-heat in the morning [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Coffee Cake Muffins

I’m going to need a slow clap starting now. When the oven timer goes off, you can begin. When I pull these out of the oven, start to pick up the pace. When I undress a muffin, go ahead and burst wildly into applause. These mini coffee cakes deserve it. My friend Heather requested a [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Pumpkin Tiramisu

Where has all the tiramisu gone? Did 1995 take it all? Did the Olive Garden serve the last slice left in this world? I feel like it used to be so prevalent on dessert menus, but not anymore. And I think that’s a shame. Tiramisu is one of the easiest, most impressive desserts I can pull [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Carrot Cake, naturally

Skinny Mini Carrot Cake @dessertfortwo

Because sugar free week can’t be all cold and creamy ice cream, I made us miniature carrot cake bites! They’re naturally sweetened, which, in my book, means:  no funky sugars, chemicals, or trips to the health food store required—not that I dislike going to the health food store. Actually, I love love love it. Some [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Microwave Chocolate Mug Cakes

Easy-Chocolate Mug Cakes | @dessertfortwo

I’ve been having late-night dates with chocolate lately.  Just me, my microwave, and a mug of hot chocolate cake.  When the microwave beeps, it’s almost like the doorbell–my date is here to pick me up! Judge me if you wish, but there’s no one else I’d rather hang out with on a Friday night than a [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Bananas Foster Baby Cakes

I just can’t help it, I’ve got the Big Easy on my brain.  And if the past few weeks’ baking is any sign (which, um, is totally is), y’all have a lot of purple, green, and yellow sprinkles headed your way. Mardi Gras reminds me of our honeymoon in New Orleans, and although it’s been [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Valentine’s Day is a big deal around these parts, and I’ve got loads of cute desserts for two to share with you this year.  First up:  this spicy cinnamon apple cake.  I made a cinnamon cake in a 6″ round cake [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Chocolate Petit Fours {cake mix}

Chocolate-Petit-Fours-cake-mix-091

(If you don’t know, petit fours are individual pieces of cake draped in their own frosting.  They are the original cake pop. Bakerella, I mean that in the most respectful way). I feel like I know exactly how it went when a Southern woman invented petit fours.  I imagine a gentlewoman, much like Scarlett O’Hara, [ Click to continue Reading! ]
