Now I want lemon bundt (minus almond...not crazy about almond in my bundt).

It's almond meal, one of my favorite things. It just makes for an extra moist, tender texture and slight nuttiness. Love almond meal! Think linzer cookies/bars, linzertorte, and Mexican wedding cakes/Russian tea cakes.

I've had a bit of a sweet tooth this month. Well that and an odd craving for Caesar salads, but I digress.

Yesterday I made a simple apple cake.
HoneyBee: Ligita's Quick Apple Cake

Served warm with vanilla ice cream. Even hubby liked it.

Oh my, that apple cake looks really good. Wish I had some tart apples, all I have are honeycrisp.

So many desserts, so little time.

Oh hell, that looks so freaking good!

I met my friend for tea tonight and had a rose cupcake with my lavender rooibos tea.

Last night my son asked for cake after dinner! Which made me laugh since 99% of the time that he eats dessert it's fruit and because I felt someone else appreciated my baking too

My daughter gave us brownie mix in a jar for Christmas, which they measured and mixed at school, and today she baked them for us. They have chocolate chips, which I never add, even though they're so good.

I've got an apple galette in the oven.

Maybe a lemon cake after that's gone.

ETA Make that an apple walnut galette with caramel sauce. I may eat the entire thing.

Maple tuiles. Like the maple syrup equivalent of potato chips.

French Silk pie. Should I have been offended when the guy asked me if I wanted a fork for the drive home?

I love yesterday's brownies baked in my mini-muffin pan. Somehow they seem less fattening than a pan of brownies I would have to cut up. But if I eat five of them . . . oh dear!

I also baked homemade granola today. I can eat it as breakfast, a snack or dessert!

I'm a little obsessed with granola and yogurt and as soon as what we have is used up I'm making my own. Yum.

Tonight my dessert is a ferrero rocher...or two.

Saria, those look so good!

If it involves food it will never be ruined and will always be a surprise!

I looked at your nutter butters again (why does that sound so dirty?) and feel like I need a glass of milk.
