Welcome to: Sweets & Treats
Anna Olson, celebrity chef and host of Food Network Canada’s Bake with Anna Olson, knows a thing or two about baking – and now she has something extra special to share.
“A whoopie pie is really not a pie at all, but is more like cupcake meets cookie,” she begins. “This recipe will give you two tender, cake-like cookies sandwiching a fluffy chocolate filling.”
One of my favorite dessert recipes is apple crisps. I’m not a big fan of apple pie or any pie for that matter. I like my desserts simple. If I want something sweet to eat I usually go for a baked or cooked apple recipe such as apple crisp or I’ll make strawberry shortcake.
I often see recipes that say “best carrot cake recipe”. I’m not sure there is really a ‘best” recipe, however depending on what you add to the recipe I’ve tasted many variations of carrot cake.
Here are two apple cake recipes made from scratch. The first is a coffee cake and requires yeast and time for the dough to rise. Both are delicious served warm out of the oven, and may be topped with whipped cream if desired.
You may want to line a baking pan with the paper towels to prevent greasy countertops. The doughnuts should take about 3 minutes to cook.
Combining summer’s sweet cherries and tart-sweet blackberries with tangy yogurt creates delicious popsicles – a cool treat to make with kids and enjoy all summer long.
Sizzling hot summer days whirl you out of the kitchen to cool places, beaches, pools, rivers and lakes. Food gets simple and moves away from the kitchen to an outside barbeque, as the kitchen stove gets too hot to handle. Sometimes however, you do feel the urge to make something delicious and beautiful for dessert. This citrus sorbet recipe served in the hollowed out peels of the orange, mandarin or lemon is the perfect thing to make for a summer celebration.
