My Easy Apple Crisp recipe is very popular here at Patty Cake’s Pantry, and we eat it often. I have a friend who can’t tolerate gluten, and we needed to bring a dessert to her for dinner. I decided to see if I could modify my original Easy Apple Crisp to make a gluten-free version. It turns out that the modification was also pretty easy. The recipe was a huge success,
Chocolate Mousse Cake is another no bake dessert that’s simple and delicious and is sure to become a family favorite. Creamy and delicious, this is the perfect decadent dessert. This recipe is similar to the Chocolate Eclair Cake recipe that we published in December of 2015, but since we are making it in our 30 days of cans, we substituted canned evaporated milk in place of fresh milk in the mousse. This is such a fun and simple dessert, we will be making it several times this summer.
This recipe is similar to my easy nectarine cobbler, but it’s made with canned fruit instead of fresh, and we’ve swapped the butter for a mild flavored oil. The result is a super delicious cobbler that is somewhat reminiscent of a bread pudding in texture, except for the crispy top. It’s a favorite with our family, and I’m certain it will be a favorite with yours, too.
Peach Melba Jello Salad contains all of the flavors of a traditional Peach Melba, but instead of poaching peaches in syrup, and serving them alongside ice cream topped with raspberry sauce, we are getting this great flavor combination in a pan of gelatin. I admit it’s not really the same, but it’s still good. This recipe for Peach Melba Gelatin can be made a day or two in advance and stored in the refrigerator. It’s fun, and it’s kid friendly.
I usually reserve my fudge recipes for Christmas, but I had a bit of leftover chocolate, and I love chocolate. This month is all about shelf stable recipes, and my homemade fudge recipe fits the bill. Today’s recipe for Rocky Road Fudge is a variation on Patty Cake’s Famous 5 Minute Fudge, and it’s one of my favorites.
Mango Graham Freezer Cake is a delicious combination of fresh mango in a sweet milk filling layered between graham crackers. There’s something irresistible about the combination of tropical fruits and the sweet milk. Mango Graham Freezer Cake is simple, delicious, and refreshing. It can also be made ahead of time and stored, covered in the freezer for up to a month until you are ready to serve it. Unfortunately, it never lasts that long around my house. The still frozen cake disappears, one piece at a time, from our freezer.
Everyone loves Peppermint Mocha Lattes, right? Why not make a peppermint mocha cookie? The best part is that these cookies start with a devil’s food cake mix and are ready for the oven in record time. The end result is a dark chocolate cookie with crushed peppermint embedded in the top. It’s festive looking and delicious.
Here’s another variation on cake mix cookies. This time, we are making m&m cake mix cookies. We start with a yellow cake mix amd add a cup full of m&m’s. These cookies can be made with whatever color m&m’s that you need to make them appropriate for whichever holiday or occasion is next up on your calendar. They are the perfect addition to a cookie tray, too.
These simple oatmeal raisin spice cake mix cookies are easy to make and loaded with flavor. The recipe begins with a boxy of spice cake mix, and I’m sure that these will become one of your regular cookie choices when it’s time to bake. They are fast becoming a favorite around our house. The cookie dough for this recipe is thicker than the usual cake mix cookie dough because of the addition of the oats to the mixture. As a result, they tend to stay fuller which gives you a finished cookie that is smaller in circumference and thicker. If […]
