1. D'Artagnan Bars

Welcome to Anna Olson's Bake Shop Treats Series, where she teaches you how to create some of your favorite bakery bars and squares. This is a homemade version of a 3 Musketeers bar, a childhood favorite of mine. That super-sweet chocolate filling is in fact a variation on divinity, a soft and chewy meringue candy. A candy thermometer is recommended for this recipe, to ensure that the divinity candy layer achieves just the right melt-in-your-mouth result.

Welcome to Anna Olson's Bake Shop Treats Series, where she teaches you how to create some of your favorite bakery bars and squares. Cream cheese is the real secret behind these lemon squares – they lend richness but also a tang that enhances the tart lemon. It also gives the lemon filling structure, so that it doesn’t leak into or underneath the shortbread base. Making them in a food processor also keeps the work time to a minimum.

4. Thanksgiving Pumpkin Crumble Cake

Pumpkin Crumble Cake Recipe combines the best of pumpkin pie with cake. This is the perfect Thanksgiving Holiday dessert. Pumpkin crumble cake is sort of a pumpkin pie and a pumpkin cake in one. I like to use Betty Crocker Super moist Yellow Cake Mix for this recipe. This cake has all the yummy flavors of a pumpkin pie but the heartiness of a cake. It's the perfect dessert to have during the holidays or bring to a holiday party. It's fast an easy and always a crowd pleaser. It was featured recently on the Betty Crocker Facebook Fan Page! I got this recipe from a friend years ago when she made it for a potluck dinner. I modified it a little over the years. I think it is the right combination of pie and cake. Enjoy!

7. Chocolate Sponge Cake

This chocolate sponge cake is a little different from most in that it does not contain flour which makes for a very light and moist cake; more like a baked mousse.
8. Beautiful Red Velvet Cake

A Red Velvet Cake is very dramatic looking with its bright red color that is offset by a creamy white frosting. If we look beyond the striking appearance of this cake, we will find that it has a mild chocolate flavor with a moist and tender crumb. The mild chocolate flavor comes from adding a small amount of cocoa powder to the batter and buttermilk gives it a moist and tender crumb.
9. Coconut Cupcakes

When I was deciding which cupcake recipes to have on the site, Coconut Cupcakes (also known as Snowball Cupcakes) were at the top of my list. I love both the look and flavor of these little buttery cakes covered with a tangy cream cheese frosting and flakes of coconut. For Spring, I often like to dress them up to look like little Easter baskets, complete with colorful handles, and candy Easter eggs.
10. Simple Chocolate Fudge

If you find the old fashioned method of making fudge daunting, you will love this rich and creamy Simple Chocolate Fudge recipe. It side steps the boiling of sugar syrup and instead, all you need to do is melt semi sweet chocolate with a little butter and sweetened condensed milk. Finish it off by stirring in some vanilla extract and chopped nuts and you are done.
