This Spanish cake roll, also associated with Puerto Rican cuisine, is similar to a Quebecoise Yule Log or British style sponge roll jam cake. It features a light sponge cake that is filled with rum/vanilla whipped cream. You can also fill it with jam or a thin layer of dulce de leche, and then the whipped cream for this deluxe recipe. Brazo Gitano translates as Gypsy’s Arm. It makes a perfect holiday cake.
Mellow and sweet, this is as old-fashioned as chocolate cake gets. Like most great chocolate cakes, this is equally good as a layer cake or 9 by 13 inch sheet cake. The exclusive use of brown sugar offers a subtle caramel afterglow to this moist, hunk of a cake but the piece de resistance is the ½ inch of meltingly divine, real fudge frosting (but not to worry – no candy thermometer required – this is a unique, quick ‘easy fudge that sets on the cake). Can you have too many chocolate cakes in your repertoire? Can a baker have too much flour?
My son Benjamin inspired me (i.e. he actually got me to stay up way past midnight baking) to make this golden pastry tart, filled with decadent brownie middle, and capped with yet more buttery pastry. It's amazing warm or cold, with ice-cream or pure and simple, as is.
The classic and my nemesis cake from my hotel school days. To make this chocolate, substitute ¼ cup cocoa for the ¼ of the flour and omit the cornstarch. You can also fill this with a regular butter icing and use a whipped ganache frosting, as this frosting is here, or fill the log with softened ice-cream and serve, with hot fudge sauce au denier minute (at the last minute) as we say in these parts.
This is a cake for simple times. Butter, sugar, eggs.
Toasted pecans and a single large presentation make this extra special - what couldbe better than buttery nuts, buttery pastry, and a slather of whipped cream and crown of beautiful strawberries? You can vary this by using vanilla ice-cream instead of whipped cream.
Mouth-watering, buttery and tender, this is just a lovely morsel called crumb cake.
This is really more of a brown sugar tea cake you will devour, than a bread but butterscotch bread sounds more interesting. It is a light, moist, deeply caramel tasting cake, with a thin sludge of brown butter fudge topping. A one layer pan cake that is a nice change from chocolate.
This butterscotch-y chocolate chip cake is quick and homey – and pleases kids and adults alike. Like a Tollhouse Cookie, but in a slice. A great coffee, tea, and cold milk cake – a lunch box dessert. Most people use semi-sweet chocolate (coarsely chopped or chips) but I actually use (and prefer) milk chocolate chips for this recipe.
Robin Hood Cake and Pastry Flour does wonders in this tender cake
