Banana Chocolate Espresso Breakfast Cake

Banana Chocolate Espresso Breakfast Cake

OK..  I need to admit something before I continue. I am addicted to Wild Friends Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter and can't stop consuming it!  It all started with my lava cakes and my daily smoothies.  

You can make this recipe as cupcakes, a loaf or what I did - use a cake pan and enjoy with your friends and a cup of tea.

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I bought a fresh pineapple along with other fresh fruit for the weekend. We never cut open the pineapple and I kept moving it around the kitchen and finally the pineapple became my centerpiece. After a couple of days I decided to make a Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake and this dessert was enjoyed by my lake neighbors.

You can use canned pineapple for this recipe but the fresh pineapple was amazing. There was extra pineapple so I chopped and added some in the mixture and enjoyed some for myself! The cook needs to eat too...

I used a 9x9 metal pan. My initial thought was to prepare this in a cast iron pan but mine is at home in Connecticut and I am baking this at our lake house. I do plan on making this again using my cast iron pan.

Paleo Almond Angel Food Cake

I love egg whites and always have a 16 ounce container in the refrigerator.  For some reason I had 2 new ones and decided to make an angel food cake and serve with a Creme Anglaise.  

This turned out to be a very enjoyable and delicate dessert for my "bring a friend for dinner night".

Paleo Carrot Cake Cookies

I am in the process of moving to our lake house for the summer and step one is cleaning out the refrigerator and using up what we have then bring up the rest. I have always hated to waste food and try to be creative in using it up! I love to create new recipes then share them with my lake neighbors over the summer. (they love it too)...

I had a bag of shredded carrots from another recipe for my segment on NBC CT  and am really not a huge fan. I like them in recipes but won't just cut them and eat them. Not sure why! Anyway - I decided to make cookies. I was actually pleased with them as I tested one and as I handed them out everyone love them! That made me happy!

If you don't have the already shredded carrots handy then use a hand grater or your food processor!

 

Paleo Chocolate and Almond Lava Cakes

Paleo Chocolate and Almond Lava Cakes

I have a new love!  When I was doing my weekly shopping at Shop Rite I found Wild Friends Vanilla Expresso Almond Butter and decided to give it a try!  The espresso got me! 

I first put it in my mid-afternoon smoothie.  My granddaughter loves it in her hot cocoa and I decided to make this dessert for my husband's birthday.  I don't really have a sweet tooth (and never had) but my husband loves lava cakes.  We went to a friend's house and I brought these in my Quattro Stagioni Jars and what a hit!  Just adding that tablespoon of this amazing almond butter made this dessert a great birthday cake!

I served with coconut ice cream and as it melted down the lava cake there were lots of smiles!

Give this Paleo dessert a try!

This was a "just because" new recipe!  I love ricotta and we don't indulge often but since we are entertaining tonight it seemed right!  Not to mention it's amazing!
