Oh, it's a German Chocolate cake
That's my favorite cake of all time. I usually double the amount of melted chocolate in the cake part. It is kind of labor intensive, but darned worth it! It's kind of a once a year cake for me.

I baked to chocolate cakes with ganache topping for our two next door neighbors. They did a lot to keep our cars and home clear of snow while we were gone. Given the extreme amount of snow we've had, I thought they deserved something to say 'thank you'.

Over the years I've had really good luck with recipes on the labels of foods. Today I gave a Kroger recipe a whirl and, WOW, how yummy!

I wanted something a little different for dessert and was in the mood for brownies. The only challenge here is that Glenn isn't a huge chocolate fan. What to do? Blondies, of course, which led me to a recipe I'd seen on the back of a package of Kroger white chocolate chips. I tried it and it's definitely a "keeper."

So, to share, check out White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Blondies. They are delicious!

I'm not much of a baker so I rarely post here, but I do read.

I have a loaf pan of Martha Stewart's banana bread in the oven now. I had a craving - had a couple of ripe bananas and some sour cream to use up so I looked around the 'net and found a recipe that calls for the sour cream. My baking powder was expired and this recipe doesn't use any, which was also a plus.

Now here it is 9:20PM and it won't be done for another hour....so I can't relax and doze in the recliner, plus I have a sink full of bowls, measuring cups and spoons that will greet me in the morning. This banana bread better be good! LOL

Cheryl, have you made Martha's banana bread before? I bookmarked her recipe but haven't tried it yet. Hope you can post a review when you sample it, please.

Sorry CG, I didn't answer your question - no, I've not made Martha's banana bread before.
It's very good! Really moist and flavorful. I'll definitely make it again.

The only thing I'd do differently next time is use my glass loaf pan instead of the dark one. It got a little too done around the edges, even though I didn't bake it for as long as the recipe said to.

Looks perfect to me..I like the edges on banana bread exactly like you made.

CG, this is an excellent recipe. I add either semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips and walnuts. I have won the hearts of my new step-children with this recipe.

Thank you, BoracayB.

It's delicious! Having a warmed and lightly buttered slice of it now, with my morning coffee.

Beth, my grands would love it with chocolate chips. I would have added chopped pecans, but I'm out.
