There are all kinds of brownie recipes out there and we love them all. Sometimes a good cakey brownie with a decadent cream cheese swirl hits our sweet tooth in just the right spot. Other times, there's nothing better than a dense, fudgey brownie.
Friends, this recipe is the fudgey variety, sprinkled with coffee grounds and kosher salt for a brownie experience that'll perk you right up. We adapted this recipe after we saw these in Toronto Eats by Amy Rosen, swapping out our gluten free flour cup for cup, and they are insanely good and super chocolatey.
We also cut the recipe in half, since we never seem to have a rectangular pan lying around. The reduced amount of batter was perfect for an 8 by 8-inch square pan.

Cook time: 35 to 45 minutes

This recipe needs to come with a warning, because these chicken tenders are so delicious you don't even need to eat them with a sauce (although they only get better once you start dipping them!)
These are fantastic for weeknight meals, since they only take half an hour from start to finish. We've made them just to dip in sauce (BBQ is our favourite), for chicken tacos with a fresh mango jicama slaw, and even for simple salads.
Prep: 5-10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Yield: 12-16 chicken tenders
When we were testing the last recipe for yellow butter cake, we ended up with some extra cake and a desire to do something different with it. Since we never made cake pops at the bakery (they were just gaining popularity back then), we figured why not give them a go?
Cake pops are still quite sweet compared to a slice of cake — especially once you've coated them with chocolate. One cake pop satisfied our sweet tooth cravings, but they're definitely a fun treat to make and great for parties! Since each one is a blank canvas, you can work them into any theme you want.
We made our frosting from scratch, since you can't beat the taste of everything homemade. We also used real chocolate (couverture chocolate made with cocoa butter) and took the extra step to temper it (it keeps the chocolate hard and snappy, and also keeps it from melting too quickly), but you can also use candy melts if you'd like (make sure to check the ingredients of course!)
Prep: 1-2 hours
Cook time: n/a
Yield: approximately 3 dozen cake pops

In our opinion, yellow butter cake doesn't get enough time in the spotlight anymore. There are so many wonderful cakes to try these days, but sometimes we sit back and talk about how we remember when this was the classic birthday cake.
The simplicity of this cake shines through when using quality ingredients, ever more the reason to ditch the box cake mix and make it from scratch. And while we love lighter buttercreams, like Italian meringue buttercream or ermine buttercream, we had to go with old-school chocolate frosting for this cake.
Prep: 30 minutes
Cook time: 33-38 minutes
Yield: 1 cake (10-15 servings)
Ingredients (Yellow Cake):
This will yield three 7" rounds or one half-sheet pan.
Ingredients (Chocolate Frosting):
This will make enough icing to frost a 3-layer 7" cake.

Light and airy, angel food cake could possibly be one of the most perfect simple cakes. Angel food is also a naturally dairy-free cake, handy for when you need a recipe that can accommodate other allergens.
This recipe is nothing like the dry and flavourless version of angel food cake you'll find sitting at the store. Adding cocoa to make it chocolate is a bonus and, if you've never made an angel food cake before, then we suggest you try it now! It's sweetness is perfectly subtle, and it's moist like cake should be.
You can serve up a slice and eat it plain, or you can garnish with berries, chocolate shavings, whipped cream, or chocolate or caramel sauce.
