You sure do nice work!

I was sitting here drooling and dreaming about a peanut butter mousse filling but, I can live with Kahlua!

Just put a loaf of whole wheat and a loaf of cinnamon bread in the oven.

Thanks!

It's just a simple ganache, I kind of eyeball the cream and chocolate until it looks right.

Very nicely done, Bakechef!

Today I made Alix's Lemon Bars. Sooo yummy. I'm still planning to make her Maple Walnut Cake -- I wanted to for Easter dessert but the chocolate cake fans outvoted me. Someday soon, though...

Interesting post.
Have nice Sunday.
That sounds lovely, Margi. Have you already posted your recipe on another thread? If not, would you be so kind?

You should try the Lemon Cake by Alix, too. Double Yum!

Son #1 loves lemon. Lemon anything. I think if Teddy bear came in lemon flavor, he would be happy. Cake copied and saved. I do believe you have just gotten me out of my malaise and into the kitchen to start baking again. Lemon cake it is!!
