Easy Baklava Cake

Honey, dates and nuts are hallmarks of baklava. I've introduced the Middle Eastern delight to the American classic yellow cake. The recipe is easy. The result is delicious! 

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Glaze

Cinnamon, pumpkin, maple agave and syrup are the stars of these baked goodies. Baked bits of brown sugar and butter nestle soft rolls. The recipe is adapted from the Bakerella blog.

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Mascarpone Cream Cheese Frosting

Cocoa fans will definitely enjoy this rich recipe. And the mascarpone frosting is one of the best I’ve ever tasted. The recipes are from Julie Richardson’s Vintage Cakes. The baking times are adjusted for cupcakes.

Note: If you don’t have buttermilk in the fridge, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to 1 cup of whole milk. Stir. Then let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes. The mixture will look lumpy but it works! (No need to strain, just use the whole cup of lumpy milk.)

Fuji Apple Cookies with Maple Syrup Glaze

Bits of finely chopped Fuji apple snuggle with brown sugar and vanilla almond granola. A drizzle of maple syrup glaze provides the perfect garnish. Breakfast, dessert or snack? You decide. 


Shrimp Scampi

The white wine provides a symphony of sweetness that combines well with the shrimp. Alcohol content does reduce when cooking. But, if you do have concerns, use white grape juice with a squeeze of lemon as a substitute.

Also, fiery red pepper flakes add heat to the scampi. However, if you and your family prefer tear-watering spices, add more. 

Pumpkin Butter Kiss Cookies

Pumpkin butter spices mingle with dark chocolate in a moist cookie sprinkled with Demerara sugar.  

Quick 'n Easy Asian-Style Quinoa

The following recipe is adapted from  Vintage Cakes by Julie Richardson.

The Ninja Baker's Family Fave Lasagne

Cheeses of any sort work well in this lasagne. Ricotta is very nice. Skip cottage cheese though. (It tends to make the dish watery.)

This lasagne was tailored to the vegetarian tastes in our family. A bit of cooked sausage would work nicely if you crave meat.
