Classic Crumb Cake

Pin It!

This weekend I used another recipe from The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook. It is described in the book as a classic coffee cake. You can also watch the author Cybele Pascal make this recipe in a Martha Stewart clip here on the author’s website.

This was another easy recipe! While it was baking Mr.K and my dad were downstairs working on finishing our basement, they could smell the cake baking and were eager to try a piece when then came up. It tasted great as expected, and I’m sure I’ll be making this one again!

Donuts

Pin It!
After being back in Orlando last week and having more treats at the Babycakes Bakery I came home with a craving for some donuts! This past weekend I tried a recipe from the Babycakes Covers the Classics cookbook.

I made the plain cake donuts, with cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. They tasted pretty close to what you get in their bakery, still warm from the oven is best!

Now that I have a donut pan I’ll have to try some different flavors from this cookbook.

Blueberry Boy Bait

Pin It!
This past week I made this moist, buttery coffee cake with its crisp, cinnamon-sugar topping from The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook. It’s based on an old-fashioned recipe from the 1950s, called Blueberry Boy Bait, a coffee cake named for the effect it had on teenage boys. You can also find the recipe here on the author’s website.

It was easy to make, and tastes great, definitely a hit in our house. The hardest part is waiting for it to bake for an hour in the oven! I can see how it doesn’t last very long as the book claims. I kept half in the fridge and it almost lasted a week, so today I made another.

This is one of my favorite recipes in the book so far, and I’m sure I’ll be making it many more times!

Birthday Time!

Over the weekend it was birthday time for my Dad and Mr. K’s Dad. Their birthdays are one day apart, so we had both of our families over for cake.

This year it was a white cake with a chocolate whipped filling, and buttercream icing, topped with writing in chocloate.

Everyone seemed to like it!

Banana Pound Cake

Another copycat recipe from the Fast Food Fix book – Starbucks Banana Pound Cake. Whenever I make this Mr. K has to take an extra piece or two for his co-workers as they have become addicted to it as well!
