Heat oven to 350 degree F. Remove plastic wrap and the loosely cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes depending on your oven. We like our French Toast a little brown on top so after baking I will place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes.

Brooklyn Blackout Cake

If you have not tried the Brooklyn Blackout Cake you need to give this recipe a try. This  cake is a rich dark chocolate cake that has a rich chocolate pudding between the layers and is frosted with a rich dark chocolate ganache. Everyone in our family loves this cake, it’s really delicious! I made this cake yesterday and it is almost all been eaten!!

It’s been awhile since I last posted and I have missed blogging and posting with everyone!

Brooklyn-Blackout-Cake

This homemade cake is easy to make in three easy steps. Step 1, make the pudding, then the cake and last the ganache. This recipe can found at Taste of Home website.

Be sure to make the pudding 2-3 hours ahead of time so that it has had time to cook before assembling the cake. Making the cake does not require using a mixer, everything is mixed in a heavy pot on your stove. The ganache is simple too!

Assembling the cake is easy too, then place your cake in the fridge to set. In about an hour you will be ready to eat!

Sunday Morning Muffins

I love to make and eat homemade Blueberry Muffins for breakfast on Sunday mornings! They are the best just from the oven when they are warm 🙂

Here is the link to my recipe!  Blueberry Muffins  They are delicious!!!

The bigger the muffin the better, I love using the large size muffin pans. I buy frozen blueberries in bags, most all grocery stores have them. Adding frozen blueberries to the batter helps to reduce the blueberry juices from turning your batter blue.

 

Enjoy your Sunday!! 🙂
