Chocolate and beets are a natural pair. The earthiness of the beets contrasts with the richness and sweetness of chocolate. The milk chocolate frosting on this cake is laced with orange zest—orange tastes great with both chocolate and beets.
Sticky toffee pudding is a rich British dessert that’s basically an exceptionally moist date cake with caramel sauce poured over the top. Steaming in the slow cooker is an absolutely foolproof way to make it. The maple syrup in the easy caramel sauce is an unorthodox American addition—but maple goes so well with dates.
Have your glass of merlot and eat it too. . .in a gorgeous, rich chocolate cake. This one by CT baker Amanda Glover is our new favorite chocolate cake.
All the soft, chewy and creamy goodness of classic oatmeal cream pies—without the crinkly plastic wrapper!
A favorite on Amanda Glover’s mobile bakery, an Airstream she calls Sweetie, patrons sometimes can’t believe this spin-on-a-classic chocolate chip cookie is gluten free.
