Inspired by the cardamom-infused tea and coffee that is popular in Iran and Turkey, this cardamom cake is garnished with a rich coffee cream. Mashed potatoes are baked into the cake to give it a dense and creamy texture. The recipe calls for a combination of fava bean and tapioca flours, in order to make it gluten free, but you can replace those with regular white flour, if desired. The cake is done when the center springs back against your fingers; any longer and the edges will be dry.

I recently was in Toronto with a few friends and we stopped into a Starbucks, where I was introduced to these oat fudge bars. I had to make my own and they are pretty close to the real thing – actually, I think they're a tiny bit better (sorry, Starbucks)!tags: desserts lunch box cookies rice, grains and breads bake more
This Ice Box Cake is super easy to make with the use of the Sara Lee® individually wrapped All Butter Pound Cake slices. The bright citrusy key lime compliments the sweet and buttery original pound cake flavor nicely. This is a perfect spring time dessert.tags: desserts rice, grains and breads no-cook more
I am a fan of any chocolate+peanut butter dessert. But these cupcakes are especially moist and chocolate-y with a rich and creamy peanut butter frosting that would be delicious spread on brownies or a layer cake – or enjoyed with a spoon from a bowl!tags: desserts bake more
These bars are quick and delicious. A few people who tried them thought they had coconut in them – they do not, so it must be the texture of the oats. These of course made a good breakfast as well (good meaning tasty, not necessarily the healthiest breakfast of the year!) and my kids love them as a snack or dessert.tags: breakfast desserts snacks cookies rice, grains and breads bake more
