Coffee Cake Muffins

Small batch of coffee cake

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! ]

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! ]

Red Hot Cinnamon Apple Cake


Welcome to February!  February is for lovers, and I’m so happy it’s finally here! 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}


(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! ]

Mini Pumpkin Bundt with Bourbon Glaze


Well, friends, I just opened a can of pumpkin.  And since my recipes use only 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup of pumpkin at a time, get ready for pumpkin inundation.  You’ll love it, I promise. This mini pumpkin bundt with bourbon glaze went quick in my house.  I’ve been wanting to develop a recipe for [ Click to continue Reading! ]
