A butterscotch-scented cheesecake batter bakes up into squares that are tote-able and divine - and just the thing when you want a little (vs. a huge) cheesecake. Dust with confectioners’ sugar or a dollop of whipped cream or drizzle on warm caramel sauce if serving as a plated dessert. The elusive 7 by 11 or 8 by 10 inch brownie pan is usually found at K-Mart of Wal-Mart. Wilton makes a fabulous one that is nonstick but scratch resistant and you can use metal utensils on.

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.

Dig out that Bundt pan

I heard about a bakery that somehow combined cake mix and a yeast dough to make great cinnamon buns and was intrigued to try my own version. Wow! This recipe makes a light, almost feathery cinnamon bun. Chill overnight and bake off first thing in the morning for fresh buns by the time The Sunday New York Times arrives.

I never use a Bundt cake for this but of course you can. I use an angel food cake pan. But the main deal here is that you get to use up one of those cans of Ocean Spray cranberry sauce you have stocked your Thanksgiving pantry with. This makes a fine textured cake with saucy hints of cranberries and oranges in a wonderful waltz of the ‘bog’, that is citrus and Cape Cod’s finest fruit. An orange glaze cascades over the moist cake for a refined holiday treat. Great with a cup of mulled cider or even eggnog. 

Heaven in a cake - dulce de leche and apples tucked inside a butter-based batter make for a delicious and easy coffee klatch cake.

A simple little decadent chocolate cake with a smack of bourbon and a caramel espresso sauce you drizzle over. It is simply lip-smackingly good. A fussy cake without the fuss - all you need is a pot or two and a wooden spoon. This recipe was inspired by one found in the novel (which you must read if you love reading about bakeries and life) by Judith Ryan Hendricks, called Bread Alone. In the book, the recipe is called Patty's Cake. I made adjustments as the cake as it was, didn't quite pan out for me but the base concept is amazing - fudge cake with toffee sauce. Amazing!


Toffee and Turtle bars come out to play in a cheesecake scrimmage. This is an ultra-smooth, caramel-laced cheesecake that takes just minutes to prepare. You can use any chocolate coffee toffee bar in this recipe. Heath Bars are fine and Skor Bars are excellent and Turtles are, well ...turtles (the pecan toffee ones, not the real ones).

A luscious butter cake, topped with caramelized chunks of pineapple. Serve with whipped cream, lemon sherbet or mango sorbet. If you want your cake nut-free, simply sprinkle brown sugar on the pineapple to caramelize the topping while the cake bakes. This is one of the most luscious golden cakes, with surprises of tangy pineapple in every other bite.

This is the best of both worlds – gorgeous golden chiunks of carrot cake are set in a decadent cheesecake batter and topped with a bit of caramel and white chocolate drizzle as the ‘cream cheese’ icing.
