Fudge. Melt in your mouth piece of heaven. I have been making fudge for more years than I care to admit to and fell in love with what has, in recent years, been dubbed “five minute” fudge more than 20 years ago. No doubt you have seen similar recipes. Rachel Ray shared her version […]
Sweetened condensed milk is one of those coveted items, especially by those of us who cannot have milk. When used for deserts, candies, cakes, even hot drinks, there is a magical depth of flavor that occurs which no other addition seems to bring to the table. My recipe for sweetened condensed milk gives you all […]
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you have likely noted the number of times I have mentioned Share Our Holiday Table this week.

A few weeks ago I asked my readers what traditional Thanksgiving dish they would like to see me transition into a Gluten Free Dairy Free delicacy. Out of all of the suggestions offered, one item in particular kept popping into conversations…Pumpkin Pie. Then I was challenged in person by a friend who wanted an easy […]
Yesterday I shared a bit about the end result of my failed attempt to make a cake for the dessert auction held Thursday night at my church. Unfortunately, time did not allow for me to recreate the beautifully moist and wonderfully decadent chocolate masterpiece I had planned, but I knew I could not arrive to […]
This past Monday, I announced on my Facebook page that I had a busy week in store. Little did I know just how busy this week would become. While I normally aim to have a new recipe up no later than Wednesday, the happenings of this week simply made that impossible, for that, I am sorry.
But you know what? Everything happens for a reason. My recipe tonight will prove exactly that.
My original plan for this week was to post a decadent chocolate glaze covered, gluten free, dairy free chocolate cake garnished with luscious chocolate dipped raspberries. This cake also happened to be what I planned to bring to the dessert auction my church had Thursday night to benefit the Young Women’s Program in our ward. To this point, I am not 100% certain what happened, but what I do know is that instead of the nice, fluffy, tender cake that has always resulted from the Chocolate Cake recipe mentioned below, I instead ended up with a crumpled mess.
Somewhere between releasing from the pan and landing on the service platter where it was meant to be decorated, my beautiful chocolate cake decided to fall apart. Keep in mind I have been baking cakes for many years…the Chocolate Cake recipe from Elana Amsterdam’s Almond Flour Cookbook is by far one of my favorite gluten free recipes and, even though I have only had her cookbook for five months now, I have made this cake nearly a dozen times already, and every time..well, every time but this time, it has turned out perfectly.
Somehow this crumpled mess that lay before me seemed beautifully moist and tasted wonderfully delicious, regardless of its pitiful condition. I simply could not bear to throw this delicious cake away and decided I needed to save it for something I have been longing to try…Voila! Cake Pops!
