No Baking Awards

This week on Romance Writers Weekly,
Brenda Margriet mentions that she doesn’t bake much, except during Christmas. She asks RWW authors to share our favorite holiday treat recipe!

I’m not much of a baker even at Christmas! I tend to stick to “almost home” treats like peanut butter cookies baked in a mini muffin tin and then push a Reese Cup into the center when they come out of the oven.  Last year our son want to make Fireball Fudge (pictured above). It was pretty, but not to my taste.  I liked the caramel glazed Jack Daniels cupcakes we tried the year before. (below)

If I’m pulling down the mixer, my favorite dessert to make for Christmas, birthdays or any time is Kuhlua Cake. A recipe given to my by my mother-in-law. I’ll be baking a cake this week for our office Holiday party.

  • 1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix
  • 1 Kuhlua Liqueur
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

I’m going to be a rebel and claim dessert as my favorite meal.  I asked my son his favorite that I make and he said Kulua cake.  Ironic in that I’d eaten a piece when I went in to labor with him twenty-three years ago this past March!  Here’s the recipe for labor… I mean Kahlua Cake.  This was shared with me by my mother-in-law.  Easy to make, enjoy!
