Lime Agave Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Basil Buttercream

Gluten Free Lime Agave Cupcakes


The first thing I thought about when baking with Organic Agave In The Raw Nectar was making these Gluten Free Lime Agave Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Basil Buttercream. And I knew, from the start, I wanted them to be gluten free. Not for the sake of being gluten free (although that’s a perk) but because the idea of a moist,…

Lemon Raspberry Tea Cake


Hey friends! Whew, the book is FINALLY turned in!! I’ve been thinking I’d like to write about the cookbook-writing process here…would that interest you? I have a lot of thoughts that I would love to share if you’re interested. I get to see the manuscript one more time, for several weeks in May, and I believe at that point it…

Pumpkin Layer Cake With Maple Pecan Clusters Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Pumpkin Layer Cake With Maple Pecan Clusters


I had a hankering for a really delicious pumpkin layer cake. I reached for the brown sugar. Nope, we need something more. We need jazz hands. I reached back in and grabbed the muscovado. Yes. Yes, this will do just fine. I didn’t want to make a pumpkin layer cake with a million jazz hands because that can be overwhelming.…

Spiced Apple Cake With Brown Butter Buttercream


I’m starting to think I have a tendency to overdo things just a wee bit. I really just wanted to make an easy, one-layer apple cake. I was picturing a light dusting of powdered sugar over the top. A snack cake. We could eat it for breakfast…lunch…dinner…snacks in between. Nobody would judge us because the name implies (insists?) we eat…

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze


Friends, let’s make some delicious maple oat scones! I love-loathe Sundays. I don’t like to make plans on Sunday and I secretly judge people that plan an event that requires me to leave the house on a Sunday. We can still be friend but if we’re to be really good friends, this has to cease.  The only outing I’ll consider…

Crème Frâiche Cheesecake With Pretzel Crust + Brûléed Figs and Grapes


I know it’s still technically summer but when everyone goes back to school it’s already fall in my mind. And fall is harvest…so I think about the grapes that are dipping below my trellis and spilling all over my patio which makes my chickens oh so happy. And I think of figs because they’re such a cozy beautiful, late summer/early…

Chocolate Affogato Ice Cream Cake + Saveur Nomination


I’m sorry, is there a better way to celebrate than ice cream cake? Better yet, chocolate affogato ice cream cake with champagne? That’s exactly what I did when I found out I was nominated for a Saveur Blog Award (in the Baking and Sweets category, yay!). I wanted us to have a beautiful dessert + bubbles. So consider this celebratory…

Fudgy Chocolate-Espresso Donuts With Greek Yogurt Glaze


Are we still nervous about baked donuts? I get it. Donuts should be fried. Laden with lots of unhealthy fats and that perfect exterior crunch. And I will never, and you have my word on this, turn down a real, fried (preferably an old-fashioned) donut. For as long as I live, that’s a promise. However, and this is a big…

Irish Coffee Cake


Is it a cake that tastes like Irish coffee or is it a coffee cake with Irish coffee vibes? Or are they the same thing? I think they’re different but this seems like more of an in-person conversation for us to have…perhaps over Irish coffee and cake? Today we’re scenting a traditional coffee cake with all of our favorite flavors: fresh-brewed espresso (or coffee),…

Chocolate Malted Layer Cake With Toasted Meringue


So I’ve learned something very important this week. Grab a drink, move in close and listen carefully: I have zero self control with chocolate cake. Every year, growing up, my mom would make me a chocolate cake for my birthday. You know the cake…those amazing doctored-up box cakes that are the confectionary equivalent to crack. One year in particular, my best…

Dark Chocolate Cake With Champagne Buttercream


Yes, it’s true. January brings with it lots of responsibility. The presents and cheer of December are faded memories that went into the trash with the wrapping paper and tinsel. But fear not. Whilst we’re knee-deep in juices and cleanses and new exercise routines, we have at least one special occasion that requires (no, DEMANDS) indulgence. And that, my friends, is the…

Buttermilk Gingerbread Cake With Spiced Citrus Buttercream


So, my KitchenAid mixer broke on Saturday. Devastated. Just wanted to get that out of the way because it’s pretty much all I can think about. And my computer start-up disc is full and Photoshop keeps telling me my ‘scratch disc’ is full. Which I’m now pretty sure are the same thing. I think. I’ve spent the entire day transferring things…

Brown Butter Muscovado Banana Bread


I’m having one of those so-much-to-say-I-have-nothing-to-say moments. Maybe it’s because it’s getting cooler? The sky a little darker? Or perhaps because I have a moment to breathe. I was going to talk about how busy I’ve been. We’ve been. How I haven’t taken two seconds to  pause. None of us have. How grateful I am for the work I’ve been getting.…
