Golden Caramel Cake
Caramel cake is my husband's favorite. It is what he always requested for his birthday as a child. So, i am always in search of a recipe similar to that that his aunt used to make him. This recipe yields a delicious cake, but the caramel icing didn't quite live up to expectations. with the browned butter, it looked like caramel candy but it didn't really taste like caramel. The texture was more like cooked pudding or something versus the almost praline-like caramel flavor icing we're used to. For those whose icing turned out runny, just keep cooking next time!

This recipe was quick and easy. I had four teenagers in the house and they all liked it. My only minor complaint is that it turned out a little salty with all of the ready made pizza sauce, meatballs and cheese. If I try it again, I may make my own sauce and meatballs and/or use turkey pepperoni instead. I also used about half of the cheese the recipe called for on top and it was plenty cheesy. Otherwise, It is simple enough for the teenagers to make for themselves and a nice home-made alternative to carry out pizza!

Overnight Lemon Country Coffee Cake
This wonderfully simple recipe yielded a moist, tender coffee cake. I would probably opt for a traditional "crumb" topping (butter, flour, sugar, nuts) vs. the brown sugar and nuts only.
