Lemon Loaf Cake – Update

I wanted to do an update on this post. I liked the texture of this loaf cake, and how fresh it stayed in both flavour and texture that I decided to try it with another cake mix/pudding combination.

This time I used a white cake mix and vanilla pudding. I also had about a cup of chocolate chips left in the cupboard so I threw them in too.

While the taste and texture was still awesome and chocolate chips do taste really good in it, the chocolate chips all sunk to the bottom of the loaf. I know that doesn’t affect the taste at all but I think next time it would probably work better if I added the chocolate chips or anything else I might want to add to the dry ingredients to see if they “stay” where they are supposed to be…. scattered throughout the loaf. Still a great taste and texture, just sunken chocolate chips lol!

Next I’m thinking maybe a nice spice cake mix and butterscotch pudding lol???

Last week I finally tried one of those cake mix/pudding recipes… you know the ones that say only 5 ingredients too make?

I really didn’t expect it to work out very well because I tried the same sort of thing with cake mix donuts a few weeks back. That was an epic fail! When I tried to get them out of the pan they just crumbled.

Why I thought it would be a good idea to give it another go is beyond me, but thankfully this time it was an epic win!

The loaf cake turns out so moist and flavorful, and it almost has a pound cake texture. I will definitely try it again!

Lemon Squares

My oven is on the fritz and I am waiting for the repair man to get the right parts in to fix it. It doesn’t want to get up to temperature and even if we heat it up using the broil function, it won’t maintain the temperature.

Even knowing that I decided to take a chance and make these quick and easy lemon squares for the boys lunches. While it took a lot longer than usual they still tasted absolutely delicious!

The combination of the lemon cake mix and lemon pudding mix give your taste buds a wonderful burst of lemony flavour!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cake

It’s been a while since I’ve made a fancied up cake for dessert. Since we were having “company” on Sunday I thought it was the perfect time to make one.

This time I decided on a chocolate cake base with a peanut butter icing and decorated with peanut butter cups!  Chocolate and peanut butter… does it get any better?
