Whole Wheat Apple Cake

This is a delicious cake enriched with fresh fruit and lusciously spiced. It tastes better the next day when the flavors really come together and the tartness of the apples settles. It is worth warming slightly before serving. Adding allspice takes away the slightly bitter taste of the whole wheat flour. Happy baking!

Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding

Combination of 2 classic recipes: bread pudding and pumpkin pie. I put this together on a whim and loved it. Taste is more comforting than sweet. Great served warm or cold and can be complemented with whipped cream or milk.

Halloween Macarons

Rating: Unrated
Macarons colored for Halloween with a mascarpone-caramel filling. After much trial and error, I was able to perfect a macaron recipe that worked for me. I am a reluctant baker but this seems to work even for a scatterbrain like me. It is very important that certain guidelines are followed to ensure a proper cookie. These are worth every effort. I recommend weighing the ingredients instead of using volume measurements.
