Mark and I just returned from a glorious 14 day vacation to Italy.  It truly was the trip of a lifetime.  Florence, Rome, Tuscany with so many wonderful places in between!  One of the highlights of the trip?  An outdoor concert featuring Andrea Bocelli in his home town of Lajotica.  The concert was really outdoors in a huge field, but the sound, underneath the stars, in Italy?  Well I’m sure you get the idea.

Another highlight of our trip was Cantucci Toscani – Italian Almond Biscotti!  We developed a real passion for these delicious little cookies.  Ok, it was close to obsession.  By the time we were ready to leave our last location, the beautiful Castello del Nero in Tavernelle val di Pesa – we were hooked!  They were bringing us two bowls at a time. 🙂

I was determined I would have to learn to make biscotti when we returned home.  By the way, if you ever want to visit the most romantic and luxurious hotel spa in Tuscany, the Castello del Nero is it!  We would go back in a heartbeat!  An amazing facility, excellent staff and customer service and well the food makes you think you are in Heaven.  Yes, it’s that good.

Pie Lady Bakes is all about easy dessert recipes, and while whipping up the biscotti dough takes relatively little time, I wanted to see what would happen when I used a cake mix for the base of our Cake Mix Biscotti!

How Do You Make Cake Mix Biscotti?
A yellow cake mix, plus delicious raw unsalted almonds, butter and vanilla.  Save a little time, enjoy the convenience of a cake mix and still have that exquisite crunchy vanilla flavour. And voila! Cake Mix Biscotti was born.
Delizioso!

Mixing up the ingredients, I found the dough to be a bit sticky.  I made sure my board and hands were well floured!  But these amazing Cake Mix Biscotti baked up like a dream, and my family raved about them at a recent Brunch we had together.  And they all went home with little bags of biscotti!  Of course I kept a few back for us!  So here is my Cake Mix Biscotti recipe just for you.  And if you don’t have time to print out the recipe right now, why not Pin It for later?

Chocolate Fudge Cake | Oh So Decadent!

Chocolate Fudge Cake is the stuff that dreams are made of!

easy chocolate fudge cake recipe best chocolate fudge cake recipe in the world chocolate fudge layer cake dark chocolate fudge cake recipe super moist chocolate fudge cake recipe gooey chocolate fudge cake fudge cake filling chocolate fudge cake recipe jamie oliver

Quick and Easy this Decadent Chocolate Fudge Cake is a crowd pleaser.

But before we get to the details and the recipe,   I have a confession to make.  Yup and it’s a big one.

You all know how much I love pie right?  A homemade pie is #1 on my dessert list.  Well, gulp, there are actually two #1’s on my dessert list.  The second #1 favorite dessert for me is…..wait for it….Chocolate Cake.  There I said it.  I’m sorry.

Not just any ole chocolate cake, mind you.  It has to be Chocolate Fudge Cake.

A moist and creamy trifecta of sugar and chocolate and more chocolate.

My husband Mark loves chocolate fudge cake so much he won’t wait for me to bake it!  So there is often a store-bought chocolate cake on the kitchen counter.  But not for long, of course.

A big slice of chocolate fudge cake and big ole glass of milk to wash it down.  My idea of snack!  Or maybe whip up this little chocolate number to take to the next potluck you’ve been invited to.  Or someone’s birthday at work?  Surprise them with this amazing cake.

This awesome chocolate fudge cake recipe is adapted from Neilson Cocoa Recipes and it’s been around for awhile.  Another little treasure I found in my Grandma’s recipe files. She would clip recipes from newspapers and magazines and put them in her recipe book.

Years ago, brands like Neilson, would create mini recipe books, and include them inside their product or on the backs of labels.

There are some great chocolate cake recipes out there.  My faves are at Recipe Tin Eats and Rock Recipes.  Both are really great recipe sites!

 I’ve included a recipe for Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting – coz you can’t have a decadent Chocolate Fudge Cake without amazing frosting – am I right?

Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake with Kahlua!

Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake with Kahlua!

Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake:

Some of the best recipes are the ones that you happen upon by accident or are shared by friends.

When someone tells you all about a great dessert, pie or cake they have just made, and you can see the excitement and pride of that accomplishment.

I always ask if they will share the recipe with me, because you know the best part?

There is no need to improve upon their success!

Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake is an easy to make dessert, richly full of flavor, smoky chocolate goodness and a teeny bit of spice. DELICIOUS!

I ran into a friend from work in the local grocery store, when we were buying our lunch and when we started asking what I was creating for the blog this week, I asked about his baking adventures.

Ben was happy to share he had just made a Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake and that the secret ingredient was cayenne pepper!  Whoaa!!

Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake is an easy to make dessert, richly full of flavor, smoky chocolate goodness and a teeny bit of spice. DELICIOUS!

 

The recipe in this post is adapted from the one published at dairygoodness.ca.  Since I’ve been in a Mayan State of Mind having just finished baking a Kahlua Pumpkin Pie (no kidding!)

Related:  Old Fashioned Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake, Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake, Decadent Chocolate Fudge Cake

I substituted Kahlua in place of vanilla for both the cake and the glaze.

I think it gives the whole Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake some extra Jazzzz……

Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake is an easy to make dessert, richly full of flavor, smoky chocolate goodness and a teeny bit of spice. DELICIOUS!

 

Now the cake may be exotic, the process is not, and this entire dessert comes together in about 20 minutes and you only use one bowl.  While the cake is baking, you can mix up the glaze in a saucepan.  Pour it into your nifty bundt cake pan , and Presto! One deeelicious chocolate cake.


Chocolate Mayan Bundt Cake is an easy to make dessert, richly full of flavor, smoky chocolate goodness and a teeny bit of spice. DELICIOUS!

 

Baking Tips
For a higher cake, try using a smaller or different shaped Bundt pan and adjust baking time accordingly.

For a celebration cake, after you’ve iced the cake, top with chocolate curls.

If you feel like a traditional chocolate cake, simply eliminate the spices.

My love affair with perfect pie recipes has been a life long pursuit.  My parents loved to camp so we on our travels we made many a pit stop at the local diner.  And you know what you always find at Diners?  That’s right.   The most beautiful pies on earth.  Seriously.  I would absolutely salivate when I looked in the dessert showcase at all of those pies.  As a kid, Blueberry Pie was my number one go to pie.  No ice cream or whipped cream for me though.  Just pie.

Diners are still my absolutely fav place to find the absolute perfect pie recipes!

Now I started to put this collection together for National Pie Day – which is on January 23 every year.  Kind of like a Christmas Day for Pies!  But life happens, and although I put up an amazing post on Buzzfeed – which you can still enjoy here, my post for Pie Lady Bakes has been a little delayed.  Until now!  I love doing roundups with my food blogger friends, they are so creative and their recipes are awesome!  Check out FBC Recipe Sharing on Facebook, if you haven’t already.

This apple crisp is one of those classic recipes that I often make up as I go along!  Sometimes I mix in oatmeal, sometimes just flour, and then again I’ll mix both.  I think the secret to a great apple crisp is the apples and how you prepare them and also the crunchy sweet topping that is full of butter, brown sugar and other earthly delights!

I like to prepare the apples just like I was getting ready to bake an apple pie.  My post Mom’s Apple Pie…. shows you what I mean.  When you mix the varieties of apples, and the spices, like ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon, the result is amazing!  And I always add a little lemon and lemon zest to bring out that sweet, juicy tartness.

 

My mother-in-law was a wonderful baker and this is her recipe.  I would often drop in at my in-laws for dinner after work and there was almost always a home baked dessert.  As soon as I walked in the door, I knew apple crisp was on that night’s menu!  The delicious smells of baked apple, brown sugar and spices created such a wonderfully warm and comforting atmosphere.  Home.

A generous square of this sweet dessert, topped with a scoop of ice cream, well you just can’t beat it.  And with fall just around the corner, farmer’s markets, local food stands and grocers will be displaying fresh fall apples.

I’ll be making a trip to the country to get those early fall apples, McIntosh, Braeburns, Granny Smiths, and Melbas to name a few.  They are so beautiful and smell so good when they are freshly picked.  My favorite apple is a McIntosh, and I often blend Granny Smiths with them for baking.
