Cranberry and Chocolate Brownie “Cake” Cranberry and Chocolate Brownie “Cake” By Cakes, Bakes and other bits 12/29/12 15:48 I have called this recipe a “Brownie Cake”, as it best describes the consistency.

Coconut Milk Cake with Rum & Coconut Sauce Coconut Milk Cake with Rum & Coconut Sauce By Cakes, Bakes and other bits 03/23/12 22:02 During the week, I was going through one or two of my books, came across what looked like a really lovely recipe for Pina Colada Cupcakes.

Orange and Lemon Polenta Cake Orange and Lemon Polenta Cake By Cakes, Bakes and other bits 11/21/11 18:08 This version of the cake was borne, once again, out of trial and error. Just like my Baked Chocolate & Ginger Cheesecake, which I also had to completely re-do, this one was just as annoying. Being a fan of all things Dr. Oetker gave me the idea on how to...
