Substituting plain Greek yogurt for plain yogurt or buttermilk in baking is just not the same!
I love to bake, but I am basically a lazy baker. It has been a really long time since I baked a cake from scratch. I am not a very discriminating cake-eater. I was thrilled when I discovered that adding melted butter instead of oil to a cake mix seriously changes the texture and taste of the finished product. I can, however, recognize when I’ve eaten something good. This is a really good recipe! Thanks Amy and Pam for letting me share! Banana Cake Cake 1 1/2 cups ripe banana, mashed (about 4 – 6 medium-large) 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 3 cups flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup butter, room temperature 2 1/8 cups white sugar 3 large eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups buttermilk Cream Cheese Frosting 3/4 cup butter, softened 12 oz. cream cheese, softened 6 to 7 cups powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1.

It’s true…after I discovered the Cake Batter Krispie Treat recipe, I have been on the hunt for good deals on candy sprinkles so that I will always have them on hand. Just this afternoon I found some pretty, springy sprinkles at the 99centsonly store – about 1.7 oz for just under a dollar. Good deal, right? I thought so, too…that is until Megan bought me a box of these… Yep…a whole 10 pound box of the prettiest candy sprinkles EVER for just $15.99 for the whole box – Costco Business. Aren’t they beautiful? I feel an urge for some Cake Batter Krispie Treats! It could just be the beginning of a quest for desserts with sprinkles included. Who needs a ticket for Mega Millions when you have a box of these! I am the luckiest girl around! Thanks, Megan!
Your not so ordinary cupcake PLUS one that is super easy to execute.
Time for some Halloween cupcakes!
I am on the hunt for yummy caramel apple desserts...got any great recipes? I might actually bake something this weekend!
This has got to be my favorite new kitchen tool...if you can call it a tool!
