Burnt Sugar Muscovado Truffles | recipe via DisplacedHousewife Rebecca Firth

Burnt Sugar Muscovado Truffles


Burnt Sugar Muscovado Truffles are such the perfect, ultimate sweet treat to my always modest palate. We whip up some burnt sugar which is so easy (1 ingredient) and takes little effort. It’s so easy we’re sipping champagne as we do this, because it’s the holidays and we’re feeling it. As the burnt sugar hardens, we combine the truffle filling…

White Chocolate Fudge Brownies


I wanted some very festive holiday brownies and these White Chocolate Fudge Brownies DELIVERED! The perfect fudge brownies get swirled with melted white chocolate (pre-bake) and then, if you’re feeling it, you can effortlessly drop pistachios and fresh cranberries over the top. If you’re not feeling holiday-ish, feel free to omit or swap in other fun flavors (raspberries?!). If you’re…

Chewy Chocolate Cookies


Let’s chat about these chewy chocolate cookies, but first: I am SO EXCITED that I am finally able to tell you that I’ve been working on a cookbook!!

This Creamy Hazelnut Pumpkin Cheesecake is one of those recipes that you can make a few days ahead, the whole thing, and not give it another thought until dessert time. I mean, does life get much better?! I added a similar recipe to The Cake Book: Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Cheesecake (it’s in the holiday chapter — SO GOOD), because I love this…

Rustic Cranberry Apple Hand Pies Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Rustic Cranberry Apple Hand Pies


Prepare yourself for these beautifully rustic cranberry apple hand pies. This recipe is a no-self-control recipe. The kind where I had two cranberry apple hand pies before noon and had to talk myself off the ledge about eating another before dinner. You can’t eat just one. I seriously dare you. And if you have that kind of self control, I…

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.…

Uber Fudgy Peppermint Brownies Recipe


This Fudgy Peppermint Brownies Recipe is actually my favorite Foolproof Crinkly Fudgy Brownies (the best brownies!) but jazzed up with a heap of peppermint flavor and a luscious layer of dark chocolate ganache. To really maximize the candy cane flavor, crushed peppermint candies are sifted so you have chunks of peppermint candies as well as peppermint ‘dust’ (see step-by-step photos…

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…
