Morning! Good Day! Happy Evening…whatever time your are checking in…wishing you the best day ever and I hope you brought your appetite as we take a look at
The Father’s Day Baking Special!
The big day is just a week away so I thought I would collect a few yummy baked treats that Dad or that special Man in your lives would love!!!
Where to start the search?
Ok…My first extinct is always
I could not settle on just one…so here are some recommendations that come to you first hand!!!
Let’s start with a luscious…decandent…easy to prepare Chocolate loaf cake from
it is called her
Everyday Chocolate Cake and I think she named it that because it is something you could eat EVERY DAY!!!! I think Dad would love this one…you can serve it plain
jazz it up with a little bit of whipped cream…ice cream…berries…preserves…chocolate syrup…maybe some salted caramel (that’s my pick! : ) one way or another it is YUMMY!!!
Now here is a chocolate cake that I have to mention…why? Because I personally think it could be the best chocolate cake ever in the history of the world! Warning: reserve a few hours for this one over the course of 2 days!!! What you will wind up with is an amazing blend of chocolate…salted caramel and dreamy creamy icing topped with the finest of salt…in three words…
TO DIE FOR!!!!!
it is the
Sweet and Salty Cake
from the creators at
This cookbook is one that is so worth having…
but if you just want to try this incredible recipe…our friend
Martha has provided us with it on her website…
I am telling you…it is worth it…it really is! really!!!!!! But remember…it truly needs the time…love and care!
Now that you have been introduced to the
“Baked” Cake…check out the different spin on it that
What a fabulous baking blog!!!
This is a much easier approach to the recipe and maybe the perfect place to start!
that is one scrumptious cupcake…you can NEVER go wrong with cupcakes! I will share with you that we have tried the recipe in cupcake form and added caramel sauce under the icing…a great compromise and always FABULOUS!!!
Now I thought I would search with a “guys” perspective so I keyed in Mr. Triple D…Guy Fieri! So this is his recipe to get to dad’s heart!
I have to tell you…the recipe is simple…chocked full of great ingredients and one that dad would be sure to love! As far as the glaze…you can use this yummy topping or come up with one tailor made for that special “guy”. Yes…I do watch a bit too much of the Food Network Late at night and Diner’s Drive In’s and Dive’s is always on!!! (I pretend that they don’t use meat and I substitute it with mushrooms and tofu in my brain : ) LOL!!!! I think this one will be a winner!
Now here is something Dad might really love for breakfast…
You can not go wrong with these!!!! Get the kids involved…they will LOVE IT!!!
I don’t usually include my own creations in the mix…but I have a few that I really know DAD would love! The first one is called:
I was watching Cake Boss one evening and saw what they did with the discarded cake trimmings and I thought it was brilliant and decided that I had to recreate it in some way…then I wanted a coffee cake that was not dry as some crumb buns tend to be…so I tweaked and tweaked and came up with this…
trust me…it works!!! hint…if you don’t want to make a second cake for the crumbs…get yourself a store bought pound cake and viola…you are ready!!!! Check it out… I know you will all enjoy!
Here’s another one that I think Dad would love…
hint…use dad’s favorite candy bar chopped up in these…WINNER!!!
One more from my collection…
If dad is a carrot cake fan…this is for him…after tweaking grannies recipe…it is picture perfect!
Here’s a great recipe from
How creamy and dreamy do they look! Dad will LOVE them and so will the kids!
Here’s one that Dad might find fun!
It is something you can’t have very often…but on a special day like this…maybe a bit of Paula Deen’s
Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding might be in order!
To all my readers that thank me all the time for showing them all kinds of healthy happy vegetarian recipes…I apologize for the above content : ) It’s always fun to splurge and what better reason then to celebrate that
Stay tuned for some more
