Chocolate Barley Bundt Cake Recipe

June 23, 2016 | by Lisa | sweets

Making a cake with barley was new to me and it turned out fabulous! It did taste a little more grainy than with all-purpose flour, but I actually liked the taste more. I could not find barley flour at my store, so I bought pearl barley and used my blender to grind it, which could explain the grainier taste.

Burmese Semolina Cake Recipe

| by Annie | sweets

Semolina Cake is a dense coconut-flavored snack cake made with semolina flour — the same flour used to make pasta. I decreased the sugar a bit from the original recipe and since I love cardamom, I increased that spice a bit as well. Semolina Cake is delicious served with hot tea or coffee.

Stained Glass Cake Recipe

| by Annie | sweets

The Stained Glass Cake Recipe from Jell-O has been around for ages. It’s easy to prepare and kids love it. I got a little impatient when preparing this recipe and added the Jell-O before it was fully set, so the cubes did not hold their shape. It still turned out pretty, but be sure to give the Jell-O the minimum 4 hours it needs in the refrigerator.

Kathleen Grissom’s Molasses Cake Recipe

May 25, 2016 | by Lisa | sweets

Kathleen Grissom, author of The Kitchen House, developed this recipe with her daughter. The only change I made was to put in in a mini cake pan. The batter smelled so amazing the kids and I couldn’t resist eating it by the spoonfuls. I hurried and took the pictures as fast as I could because there were salivating mouths hanging over it, but, looking back a dollop of whipped cream on top would have been the topping on the cake.
