Sweet Milk Sugar Cookies

Posted by JJoni This is an unusual sugar cookie recipe because you cut the butter into the flour similar to pie crust and then add the wet ingredients. It also calls for adding "sweet milk", which years ago was referring to any type of milk, other than buttermilk. When I was a child standing on a chair next to my mother, this is the recipe we would use to make rolled out cookies. It yields a light sumptuous sugar cookie with a hint of nutmeg flavor.

Scratch Pina Colada Cake

Posted by caymancake This is a small recipe as it was originally based on a cupcake recipe I cam across. It bakes into a cake very nicely – and doubles and triples easily. One batch will yield a tall 6” cake, a short 8” cake or 12-15 cupcakes. It always gets rave reviews though! Some useful tips: - if you are planning to use coconut buttercream, omit the use of the coconut milk/coconut extract. - this cake pairs really well with a vanilla or rum buttercream and makes a stunning dessert when you add shredded coconut as a garnish. ENJOY!! Ingredients:... read more

Old Fashioned Sour cream fudge cake

Posted by cakesrock I had this a couple of times at my son's friend's b-day parties. His Mom was happy to share the recipe with me and all of you CC'ers. It is really moist and tasty (must be the brown sugar). Wouldn't use it for major carving jobs and do freeze it for 30 mins before you trim or carve something flat. Do not squish down to flatten with a cake board (as you can do for WASC or other cakes). This will compress the cake and make it very gooey. You need to trim the hump. Frosting is optional, but it's also good if you choose to use... read more
