A gossamer little almond cake, fortified with marzipan (almond paste) and slivered almonds, finished with a pirouette of plum jam makes this a dreamy tea cake for after the ballet.
Oatmeal streusel topping makes a nice change from the usual walnut variations.

This is a lofty spice cake, perfect for Thanksgiving, Halloween coffee klatch or anytime at all in fall. The cake is fine-grained, delicate but moist -this is not a heavy cake, and gently spiced. It features a penuche-style sweet pecan brown sugar glaze. Alternatively, I offer a vanilla scented cream cheese glaze for more glaze/cake contrast. And sometimes.....I don't do glaze or icing but instead, opt for a spicy, streusel topping, like the one used in sour cream coffee cakes, and apply that before baking. This is an amazing cake. Our testers bring their baking to work, volunteer venues, to schools, and groups they are involved with- This particular cake drew raves from anyone who had but a tiny crumb!
A unique way to present homey, sweet , spicy quick bread. You can also use this batter to make a few dozen muffins which freeze well. A touch of apricot jam makes this especially mellow and moist.
Shortcake by any other name, in any guise. This is so good; no wonder some 2500 people have downloaded this favourite BB recipe. Berries and a coating of Swiss chocolate on a buttery scone, aka rich, buttery shortcake base. This recipe is the bomb which explains why it is downloaded constantly. It has shades of country fair crossed with Black Forest Cake - Nothing but nothing is as fresh, decadent, and easy or crowd-pleasing as this cake.
You know those delightful chocolate oranges by Terry's? A whole chocolate orange splits into milk chocolate, orange-scented wedges that are just wonderul (and a traditional holiday gift). The Terry's orange is always a welcome sweet treat but really divine, if you coarsely chop one up and add it to this tender, buttery cake. You can marbleize this cake or leave it as a vanilla-orange batter, with the Terry's Orange pieces, flecked throughout the cake. This cuts into thick, moist slices of cake - not as heavy as most pound cakes and richer than a quick bread.

Gilding the lily – sure, but why not? A little sweet milk for flavor, some sour cream for additional dairy fat (it’s not a dirty word, shame on you) and some buttermilk for the extra acid and rise it affords. Stone ground cornmeal is best – the rest is like yellow sawdust. Make this in a graniteware pie pan to authenticate Americana corn bread baking or use a 10 inch cast iron skillet (The Lodge, America's best know cast iron cookware makers offer the best cast iron skillets(a square one is another good choice for cornbread). Nowadays The Lodge cast iron classics come pre-seasoned – for the prettiest cornbread ever, check out www.Lodgemfg.com)
Two English inventions (scones and nippy dry mustard such as Coleman's) come together quite nicely. Don't spare the cheese - measure a bit more and it's fine and don't spare the quality either. Opt for a flavorful, strong orange Cheddar. These scones are lofty, golden-crusted and buttery - pure heaven. Perfect with a good cuppa Breakfast tea or a fine Assam.

You might call this a coffeecake with all the wonderful elements and flavors of soda bread. Moist, fine-grained and a good keeper. It is an Americanized soda bread and a great introduction for neophytes. If you have some Kerry's Irish Gold butter, this would be over the top delicious but American or Canadian sweet butter is just fine.
