Black Forest Cake

Black forest cake is a traditional German torte originating from a bakery in the Black Forest. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

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. We drove through part of the Black Forest – the setting for many of the tales. It’s absolutely gorgeous, but a dense…

Chocolaty Chocolate Cupcakes

What's the point of chocolate cake if there's not chocolate in the batter? Problem solved with these chocolaty chocolate cupcakes! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

What’s the point of chocolate cake if there’s not chocolate in the batter? Problem solved with these chocolaty chocolate cupcakes!  I’m a big fan of melting chocolate right into cake batter. I like my chocolate cake to taste distinctively of chocolate. The only problem with that is that sometimes, like when baking cupcakes, it doesn’t really result in a domed cupcake. I also like domed cupcakes. So once I realized…

Classic flan gets a citrus liquor twist in this Grand Marnier flan recipe. Flan is a delicious, cooling, custard dessert common in Latin cuisine.  Here’s a fun fact I learned recently – flan has Roman roots! Apparently, a savory version was introduced to Europe by the Romans, and the rest is history. Who knew? Anyway, I thought this was a fun little bit of food etymology perfect for sharing to start…

Which were…

Orange Curd

Citrus curd without the pucker, this orange curd recipe reminds me of a creamsicle. Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

I heard a radio DJ yesterday listing off four or five words that women hate to hear in conversation. I agreed with a few, because they’re just awkward words to used outside of very specific situations, but curd was on the list and I’m not sure why.
