  1. This is a really good base snack cake recipe that you can easily play around with. To make it a (tad) healthier, I usually reduce the butter to 1/4 cup and add 1/4 cup cinnamon applesauce. I also reduce the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and the white sugar to 2/3 cup, and add 1 - Read more ...
  2. Definitely not the most eye-catching dessert, but the taste more than makes up for the less-than-appealing appearance. I made this into a layer cake, covering it with a peanut butter frosting, and it was to die for!

I am getting ready to bake this again. I have baked it several times, but it always seems to leave! Thanks for - Read more ...
  8. Extremely easy and quick to make. I use chips only on top and bake in 9 x 13 pan.
  9. This has long been a family favorite. It is best served warm and with vanilla ice cream. A great treat for those who do not like frosting. I had lost this recipe and it is wonderful to find. Thanks for posting.
