Light As A Cloud Lemon Yogurt Pound Cake

1 Comment | Written on April 8, 2015 at 4:13 pm , by

This Light As A Cloud Lemon Yogurt Cake is perfect for your weekend dessert ideas, and is best served for a large group of people after a hearty meal. We especially love this easy recipe for this time of year because it takes full advantage of the citrus that happens to be in season. Plus, with the addition of yogurt, this is actually a cake recipe that has a bit of protein to it. This tastes great with some Earl Grey tea on the side, and can even be frozen and thawed to serve when you’re ready to enjoy it.

Luscious Japanese Daifuku Cakes

No Comments | Written on February 27, 2015 at 4:29 pm , by

No, that’s not a typo and we didn’t sneeze. Daifuku means “great luck” in Japanese and is a type of cake served in the country. If you’ve never tried them, you’ll love the wonderfully dense flavor and delicate lightness to the dessert. Try them the next time you’re having a dinner party, as they’re a wonderful dessert to enjoy while people are having conversation. As a single serving dessert idea, they also make a great item to bring along to your next potluck. Serve these with some coffee or green tea on the sides and people will love them!

You Can’t Deny This Baklava

2 Comments | Written on February 26, 2015 at 9:08 am , by

Baklava is such a wonderful dessert that comes from Greece (or Turkey, depending on who you talk to). We love it because it’s loaded with wonderfully sweet flavors, and is lighter than something like a brownie. This makes a wonderful winter dessert if you’re getting tired of all the cakes and pies but still crave a sweet dessert. This goes wonderfully with your favorite tea or coffee, and we like to enjoy it as a weekend breakfast.

Irresistibly Nutty Waffle Fruit Cups

If there’s anything we love more than a waffle recipe, it’s a waffle cup that’s stuffed with fresh fruit. This recipe might look like something you buy in Europe from a fancy pastry shop, but it’s an unbelievably simple breakfast or dessert that you can pull off at home. All you need are a few simple ingredients you probably have at home. If you don’t have one of the shallow waffle presses, feel free to make this a crepe on a griddle instead!
