TEXAS SHEET CAKE RECIPE

Cake:
1 cup butter
1 cup water
¼ cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
⅛ teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Icing (recipe below)
Icing:
½ cup butter
¼ cup cocoa
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 box (1 pound) confectioners’ sugar (sift it first to remove lumps – otherwise icing remains lumpy)
½ teaspoon vanilla
Chopped Pecans (optional)
How to make it :
For the cake:
In a saucepan, combine the butter, water and cocoa over med. heat until the butter melts. Don’t let it cook too long.
In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, flour, salt, eggs, and baking soda.
Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients. Careful, it’s hot.
Add the sour cream and vanilla and mix well.
Pour into a sheet cake pan or jelly roll pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
For the icing:
In a saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa and milk over medium heat and bring to a boil.
Immediately remove from heat and combine with confectioners sugar and vanilla.
Mix well with a mixer to remove lumps.
Spread over the sheet cake while it is STILL hot. You can either mix the chopped pecans into the icing before pouring it over the hot sheet cake, or sprinkle them over the top after you put the icing on (or omit all together).

RICE KRISPIE TREAT NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE — THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!! WHAT A COOL IDEA!!!

Ingredients

FOR CRUST:
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
¼ cup salted butter
1 pkg miniature marshmallows
FOR FILLING:
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
½ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow creme/fluff

Whipped cream
Cubed & prepared Rice Krispy Treat Squares (I used the ones from the box)
Instructions
Liberally grease a 9″ or 10″ springform pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add in the Rice Krispies cereal. Set aside momentarily. In a medium saucepan, melt the salted butter and marshmallows together over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the cereal and toss until totally combined. Pour the cereal into the prepared pan and, using a greased glass cup, press the cereal mixture into the pan, forming a base and sides. Put aside to set, about 20 minutes.
While crust sets, make your filling. In a large bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth, about 1 minute. Beat in the marshmallow creme until smooth. Lastly, fold in the Cool Whip by hand until combined.
Spread the filling mixture into the crust, smoothing out the top. Garnish with whipped cream piped along the perimeter of the cheesecake and top with stacked prepared & cubed Rice Krispy Treats in the center. Chill for at least 2 hours in the fridge before cutting into slices.

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Ingredients

  • 1 and 3/4 cups (219g) all-purpose flour 
  • 3/4 cup (62g) unsweetened natural cocoa powder*
  • 1 and 3/4 cups (350g) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons espresso powder (optional)*
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil (or canola oil or melted coconut oil)
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature*
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (240ml) buttermilk, at room temperature*
  • 1 cup (240ml) freshly brewed strong hot coffee (regular or decaf)*

Chocolate Buttercream

  • 1.25 cups (2.5 sticks or 290g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 and 1/2 cups (420g) confectioners’ sugar
  • 3/4 cup (65g) unsweetened cocoa powder (natural or dutch process)*
  • 3–5 Tablespoons (45-75ml) heavy cream (or half-and-half or milk), at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • optional for decoration: semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease two 9-inch cake pans, line with parchment paper, then grease the parchment paper. Parchment paper helps the cakes seamlessly release from the pans.
  2. Make the cake: Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and espresso powder (if using) together in a large bowl. Set aside. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or you can use a whisk) mix the oil, eggs, and vanilla together on medium-high speed until combined. Add the buttermilk and mix until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, add the hot water/coffee, and whisk or beat on low speed until the batter is completely combined. Batter is thin.
  3. Divide batter evenly between pans. Bake for 23-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Baking times vary, so keep an eye on yours. The cakes are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Note: Even if they’re completely done, the cooled cakes may *slightly* sink in the center. Cocoa powder is simply not as structurally strong as all-purpose flour and can’t hold up to all the moisture necessary to make a moist tasting chocolate cake. It’s normal!)
  4. Remove the cakes from the oven and set on a wire rack. Allow to cool completely in the pan.
  5. Make the buttercream: With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy – about 2 minutes. Add confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder, 3 Tablespoons heavy cream, salt, and vanilla extract. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, then increase to high speed and beat for 1 full minute. Do not over-whip. Add 1/4 cup more confectioners’ sugar or cocoa powder if frosting is too thin or 1-2 more Tablespoons of cream if frosting is too thick. (I usually add 1 more.) Taste. Add another pinch of salt if desired.
  6. Assemble and frost: If cooled cakes are domed on top, use a large serrated knife to slice a thin layer off the tops to create a flat surface. This is called “leveling” the cakes. Discard or crumble over finished cake. Place 1 cake layer on your cake stand or serving plate. Evenly cover the top with frosting. Top with 2nd layer and spread remaining frosting all over the top and sides. I always use an icing spatula and bench scraper for the frosting. Garnish with chocolate chips, if desired.
  7. Refrigerate cake for at least 30-60 minutes before slicing. This helps the cake hold its shape when cutting.
  8. Cover leftover cake tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

1 tablespoons (15ml) Rodelle pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

FOR THE GANACHE:
2 ounces (56g) dark chocolate
6 tablespoons (88ml) heavy whipping cream

INSTRUCTIONS

FOR THE CAKE:
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare 3 8-inch round baking pans, line the bottom with parchment paper and grease the sides. Prepare the bake even stripes if desired.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed until well incorporated and the batter is lighter in color. Next mix in the sour cream and beat until well combined.
In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Alternate half the dry ingredients followed by half of the coffee and mix just until the flour starts to incorporate. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and stir the batter from the bottom to the top to ensure it’s well mixed.
Divide the batter evenly between the three pans, about 1 2/3 cups of batter per pan. Bake at 350°F for 20-24 minutes. Rotate your pans in the oven halfway through baking.Test the cake for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, your cake is done. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

FOR THE FROSTING:
Cut the butter into pieces. Using the paddle attachment, whip butter for 3-4 minutes, scraping down the bowl occasionally. Beat until butter looks light in color. Next, beat the cocoa powder into the butter until well mixed.
Alternate adding 2-3 cups of powdered sugar at a time with the liquid ingredients: vanilla extract & heavy cream. Add pinch of salt as needed. Ensure all the powdered sugar is well combined and beat for 2-3 minutes before adding additional powdered sugar.
Once all ingredients have been added, whip for 3-4 minutes until the frosting is light and airy. If the frosting is too thick, add additional heavy whipping cream 1/2 tablespoon at a time.

FOR THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE:
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate and heavy whipping cream. Melt the chocolate in the microwave at 50% power in 30-second increments and stir until completely combined. Allow to cool.

TO ASSEMBLE THIS CAKE:
Level the cake layer by removing any domes. Place a dollop of frosting on your cake board and place the bottom layer of cake over that.
Pipe the first layer of frosting, pipe in circles working outside edge to the middle. Spread evenly with an offset spatula. Add the second layer of cake and add the remaining frosting. Place the third layer of cake on top.
Use you offset spatula to press any excess frosting onto the edges of the cake. To finish, pipe the frosting along the outside edge of the cake using a large open round tip or a cake icer tip. Then use an offset spatula or icing smoother to create a smooth edge. Refrigerate the cake for 15-20 minutes.
Use a spoon or piping bag to drizzle the ganache along the edges of the cake. All the ganache to set completely. To pipe the rosettes on top, use a large piping bag, fill the piping bag with the remaining frosting and pipe the boarder of the cake.

Whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until firm, gradually add sugar and mix until it dissolves and they become stiff and shiny. Mix in sifted flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder and baking powder. Slowly add vinegar, oil and rum. Arrange this mixture over baking sheet and bake at 150/160 Celsius for 10 minutes. Repeat for all layers. Let cool.
When the filling has cooled completely, mix it with your electric mixer. In a separate bowl, mix whipping cream until firm. Combine the two. In the end, dissolve gelatin and add to the filling.
Assemble: Put first sponge layer on serving plate, cover with ⅓ of the filling, put second layer, cover with filling, third layer and finally filling. Leave in fridge overnight.
The next day sprinkle with some grated chocolate and cut in small squares, serve.
