Imagine fall in a bite. This caramel apple cider bundt cake is like the cake version of apple cider doughnuts, with loads more apple flavor, and caramel.   My favorite seasons always have been the transition seasons, Fall and Spring. The weather is mild, there are so many activities, and the flavors are so vibrant with early fruits or the end of summer harvest. When apple and caramel season, i.e.…

Flourless Black Forest Cake is a gluten free treat inspired by in-season cherries and classic Black Forest Cake.  I forget about flourless chocolate cake. Tucked at the bottom of most dessert menus as a token “gluten free” option, I think it’s easy to assume flourless chocolate cake isn’t as “exciting” as less familiar items with longer names. Until, of course, we want something rich, unapologetically chocolate, and so decadent it’s…

Black forest cake is a traditional German torte originating from a bakery in the Black Forest. This recipe is a more chocolate-rich version of the original.  I developed a whole new appreciation for the original fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm last year on our trip to Germany.
