12 Tasty Ice Box Pies

YOU GUYS…summer is the worst.

It’s hot, muggy, and literally impossible to turn your oven on without heating up your entire house. This, of course, makes it near impossible to enjoy a yummy cake in the summertime…unless it’s an ICE BOX CAKE.

Made almost completely in your freezer and featuring such delicious foods as whipped cream, ice cream, and fruit, ice box cakes and pies are an awesome summertime staple. They’re great for summer birthdays, BBQ’s, or just to cool down on a hot summer afternoon.

Often inspired by delicious cocktails (like pina coladas and margaritas), ice box cakes make it slightly easier to enjoy the bright summer sunshine!

9 Delicious Dump Cake Recipes

Let’s be real…sometimes you want a little something sweet but you just don’t want to turn on your oven or dirty up more than a dish or two…or maybe you actually do have an unexpected guest that comes to visit and you want to whip up something quick and easy for dessert…

No matter what the reason, dump cakes are a great go-to for weekday desserts or last-minute treats. Often mixed and baked right in a cake pan, dump cakes are equivalent to a chop n’ drop recipe that gets you in and out of the kitchen in no time.

Some of these are made in slow cookers while others bake in the oven. Most require less than a handful of ingredients, so if you have cake mix and some chocolate on hand, you can create a decedent dessert that tastes like you slaved away all day!

17 Tasty Mug Recipes

Sometimes you just need a little taste of something sweet.

Thankfully, there’s no better time to turn to the 1950’s staple of good home cookin’: the microwave.

These microwave cup-cakes are great for enjoying on your own, or sharing with a special someone. Prepared, mixed and baked all in a large coffee mug, these recipes are perfect for late-night cravings or quick and easy desserts for two (or let’s be honest, one) ;).

Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Bread

Here’s your homework for the day.  Go into your recipe collections and find all the pumpkin spice cake recipes that you have.  Gather them together and throw them the F away…because this Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Bread is a legit game changer.

swirl-bread

Soft and delicious, this pumpkin bread is great for breakfast or dessert.  You can add a sweet cream cheese glaze on top for added richness, or just serve it as is because it’s just that good.

Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Bread

Ingredients:

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup canned pureed pumpkin
  • ½ cup bittersweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa or hot cocoa mix (either one will work! It’s mostly for color)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat a 9 in. loaf pan with non-stick spray.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Mix together and set aside.

In another large bowl, combine butter and sugar.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.  If your butter is room temp, you can also beat with a whisk by hand, which is what I prefer…but to each his own!  Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla, beating well until combined.

Alternate adding flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with flour, and mixing until everything is just combined.  Fold in the pumpkin.

Divide batter in half.  Add melted chocolate and cocoa powder to one portion.  Mix to combine.

Alternate adding pumpkin and chocolate batter to prepared pan.  Using a knife, swirl batters together.

Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.  Let cool completely, then remove from pan.

Your kitchen will smell amazing and your stomach will thank me.  And you’re welcome.

If you want to make a cream cheese glaze, you can combine 2 tablespoons softened cream cheese with ½ cup confectioners’ sugar and ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract.  Add 1 teaspoon milk, and continue adding milk little by little until you achieve the right consistency.

12 Decadent Dessert Recipes (with BEER!)

Tis the season for sweaters, pumpkins, scarves, and boots…which means it’s also time for hot apple cider, strong coffee, and tasty stouts and porters.

OOOOOOH YEAH.

I could easily drink stout year-round, but I love it even more in the fall.  Often flavored with chocolate or coffee, stouts are the perfect ingredient to add to chocolate cakes and pies for added depth and flavor.

I’ve used Guinness in my baking before (check out my recipe for Guinness cupcakes!), but there are so many other (and BETTER) stouts and porters to use in your fall and winter baking…

So crack open some cold ones (for baking) and pour some whisky (for drinking) and enjoy these 12 chocolatey, decadent desserts all made with beer.
