Banana cake is one of my all time favorite kind of cake. To me its one of those cakes that has fruit so it seems like it is healthy and has the rich sweet taste from the cooked bananas that makes banana bread so good, but in cake form. The banana walnut cake comes out super moist and fluffy, great balance of sweet and richness and is topped with a great cream cheese frosting that isn't over sweet. Banana cake tastes even better after it has been in the refrigerator and is cold on a hot summer day like today. Check out the recipe below in post.

Doughnuts and muffins to me is the breakfast choice you have when you are looking for something extremely easy and fast to eat on a busy morning. Both are great in there own way, but doughnuts check so many more boxes since they are sugared filled and greasy from being fried. These chocolate muffin tin doughnuts have great characteristics of both, but the texture and richness you get in doughnut, but the ease of muffins when making them at home. With the baking process you don't have to worry about having oil at the right temperature and flipping them over mid way. Just scoop the batter in the muffin tins and let them cook hassle free for 20 minutes.
The classic spring dessert is the classic carrot cake.

These are great to make with kids with the ease of the preparation and the fun of decoration them in spring theme or just the classic carrot shape that is the norm of carrot cake.

It seems like lately that you see people using essential oils to help make their houses smell better and other health benefits that can come along with them. I bring this point for this exact recipe, because with this recipe you are cooking my favorite oil, BUTTER!!! I mean a lot of butter goes into these brownies and then stirring in chocolate on top of more chocolate into it your house becomes pretty good smelling I can so myself. These brownies do have a lot of butter, but these brownies do have very little flour and the texture is kinda like a chocolate souffle or chocolate torte and most of the structure and binding is from the eggs and the condense milk that veins through the brownies makes them super moist for days. Overall these brownies are awesome tasting and smell even better. Check out the recipe below.
