Valentines

Totally worth all of the work!

SERVES 16 -20 , 1 cake (change servings and units)

Ingredients

* 1 cup margarine, softened
* 2 cups sugar
* 3 cups self-rising flour
* 4 eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/2 cup coconut milk
* 1/2 cup milk
* 2 1/2 cups sugar
* 1 cup water
* 4 egg whites
* 2 teaspoons coconut extract

* 2 (6 ounce) bags frozen coconut

Directions

1. Place margarine in a mixing bowl. Fluff with mixer.

2. Add sugar, small amounts at a time.

3. Add eggs one at a time.

4. Add flour a little bit at a time alternating with the milk.

5. Add the vanilla.

6. Spray cake pans with Pam and dust lightly with flour. Cake will make 4 layers. If you only have 2 cake pans [like me — ], you can bake in 2 shifts (2 pans at a time).

7. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes.

8. After taking the final pans out of the oven, let cool. You can begin cooking the frosting here.

9. For frosting:.

10. Put sugar in a 3-qt. sauce pan. Add water. Stir a little to dissolve sugar.

11. Bring to a boil and stop stirring.

12. Lower heat to medium, bring to soft ball stage, until it just begins to spin a thread while it cooks. Remember, do NOT stir the frosting while cooking. The process will take about 15-20 minutes.

13. Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff.

14. Pour cooked syrup (mixture in saucepan) into the egg whites in a thin stream while you beat it with a spoon. Beat for a few minutes to cool it a little.

15. Add coconut and coconut flavoring.

16. When it starts to cool a little, it is ready to frost the cake. Wait 10-15 minutes for this to occur.

17. While frosting, keep this in mind: frosting tends to separate (the syrup has higher density and will fall to bottom of bowl). Make sure that you keep the frosting homogenous (mixed) while frosting. Frosting is very thin, so it will fall off of the cake. Make sure to frost on the platter that you will serve the cake on. Also, keep reapplying the frosting that falls off until almost all is reabsorbed.

18. Fresh coconut will stick to sides and syrup will absorb into cake.

19. This is the most moist, delicious, yummy cake in the world! Perfect for an anniversary or holiday!

lemon pie

Ingredients

Makes one 11-inch pie

Directions

  1. Wash and cut 2 of the lemons into paper-thin slices. It is very important to slice the lemons as thinly as possible; use a very sharp knife or an electric meat slicer, if on is available. Remove peel and pith of remaining lemons; slice the flesh very, very thinly, and put it with the other slices in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, and toss well to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let the mixture rest overnight, stirring occasionally.
  2. The next day, preheat oven to 450 degrees. Press one circle of pastry into an 11-inch pie plate and chill.
  3. Add beaten eggs to the lemon mixture, and mix well. Turn mixture into prepared pie shell, neatly arranging some of the lemon slices on top. Cut long, even slashes 1 inch apart in the other pastry round, and place on top of filling. Crimp edges of the pie to seal. Brush top and edges with egg-white glaze. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and continue baking for 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and shiny. Let cool on a rack before serving.

Ready in: 30-60 minutes

recipe difficulty 3/5 Difficulty:   3 (1=easiest :: hardest=5)

Serves/Makes:   16

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter

2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

4 1/2 squares unsweetened chocolate — (1 ounce size)

1/2 cup boiling water

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

***Caramel Filling***

1 1/8 cup butter

3 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

2 cups superfine sugar

1 cup milk

Turn this recipe into a puzzle!

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour four 8-inch round cake pans.

Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Alternately beat in flour mixture and buttermilk until smooth.

Place unsweetened chocolate in a small bowl. Pour the boiling water over the chocolate, and stir until melted. Mix chocolate, vanilla, and lemon juice into the buttermilk batter. Divide batter evenly into the prepared cake pans. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans, then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.

Caramel Filling: Mix the butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, superfine sugar, and milk in a heavy saucepan. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil, and cook until temperature reaches 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.

Remove saucepan from heat, and set in a large bowl filled with ice water.

Beat filling with an electric mixer until spreadable. At first this seems to be just hot, hard work, but the filling will suddenly start to thicken as it begins to cool. Transfer filling to a clean bowl, and it will continue to cool as you frost the top of each cake layer. Stack the frosted layers atop each other.

raisin Pie

This pie, which contains both dark and golden raisins, makes a traditional, delicious dessert for Thanksgiving or anytime.

Ingredients

Serves 8

  • 1 1/2 cups golden raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups dark raisins
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Pate Brisee (Pie Dough)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream

Directions

  1. Combine dark and golden raisins in a large bowl, cover with boiling water, and let soak for 15 minutes. Drain in a colander, discarding water, and return raisins to bowl. Add sugar, flour, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the raisins. Mix thoroughly, and set the pie aside to thicken for about 10 minutes.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out half of the pate brisee to a 1/8-inch thickness, and drape over a 9-inch pie pan. The dough should just fit to the lip of the pan, with no overhang. Roll out remaining half pate brisee to a 1/8-inch thickness. Using a ruler, measure a 9-inch circle in center, marking lightly without cutting through dough. With a round 1/4-inch pastry tip (number 4 tip) or a straw, punch holes in dough making 10 to 12 rows. Work quickly, so dough remains cold and holes punch through easily.
  3. Fill the prepared pie pan with the raisin mixture. With a pastry brush, gently brush the dough edges with cool water, and top with perforated dough, making sure it is centered. With scissors, trim excess dough so that it creates an overhang of 1/2 inch. Tuck the dough overhang under itself to sit just on top of rim. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat the oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, combine egg yolk and cream to make a glaze. Brush pie sparingly with the glaze.
  5. Place pie on a baking sheet and transfer to oven. Bake for 20 minutes, reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees. and bake 35 to 40 minutes more. If pie starts to get too brown, drape a piece of aluminum foil over top. Remove from oven to wire rack, and let cool.

msbh_banana_cream_pie_l

Ingredients

Makes one 9-inch pie

  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1/2 recipe Pate Brisee (Pie Dough)
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, sifted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour, and roll out pate brisee to a 1/8-inch thickness. Fit into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Trim pastry using scissors or a sharp paring knife. Crimp or decorate edges of pastry if desired. Chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Carefully line pastry with parchment paper, pressing it into corners and edges, and weight with beans, rice, or aluminum or ceramic weights. Bake until pastry begins to color around edges, about 15 minutes. Remove paper and weights, and continue to bake just until pastry dries out and turns golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  3. Cool completely on a wire rack. The baked shell can be stored in airtight containers or well wrapped in plastic in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  4. Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Make the custard: In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt. In a medium saucepan, bring milk just to a boil. Remove from heat, and whisk about 1/2 cup of hot milk into yolk mixture. Whisk yolk mixture into saucepan of hot milk. Place over medium-high heat, and bring to a gentle boil, whisking constantly. Continue to cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and whisk in butter, one piece at a time, until melted. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, and whisk until smooth. Immediately strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium bowl. Place bowl of custard in ice bath to cool, stirring occasionally.
  5. Peel bananas, and slice 1/4 inch thick. Add lemon juice, and toss gently to coat. Arrange in an even layer in bottom of baked piecrust. Scrape cooled custard over bananas, and smooth top with a spatula. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
  6. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat cream on medium-low speed for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium-high, and add confectioners’ sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until soft peaks form. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip (Ateco No. 32). Pipe cream over custard in large rosettes, covering it completely. Serve immediately.

Just before serving, cut 3 or 4 bananas into 1/4-inch slices, slightly on the bias. Beginning at the edge of the piecrust, arrange the slices in slightly overlapping rows on top of the whipped cream.

banana split cake

Instead of cake and ice cream, try a birthday party dessert inspired by both. This gooey trifle overflows with layers of vanilla cake, vanilla pudding, whipped cream, bananas, and drippy chocolate sauce.


Ingredients

Serves 10 to 12

  • FOR THE PUDDING
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • FOR THE WHIPPED CREAM
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
  • FOR THE ASSEMBLY
  • Yellow Cake, baked in two 8-inch round cake pans
  • 4 large bananas, peeled and halved crosswise then lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup store-bought chocolate sauce, warmed
  • 1 maraschino cherry, for decorating
  • Yellow sprinkles, for decorating
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts, chopped (optional)

Directions

  1. Make the pudding: Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Whisk together cornstarch, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, and salt in a small bowl. Whisk eggs in another bowl until smooth; whisk into cornstarch mixture. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together milk and remaining 6 tablespoons sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Slowly pour milk mixture into egg mixture, whisking constantly.
  3. Pour mixture back into saucepan. Cook, whisking constantly, over medium-high heat until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and pour through a sieve into a medium bowl. Whisk in butter and vanilla. Set bowl in ice-water bath, and let cool, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Pudding can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 3 days.
  4. Make the whipped cream: Put cream into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add confectioners’ sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  5. Assemble the cake: Using a serrated knife, trim tops of cakes level, then cut each in half horizontally, making 4 layers. Place 1 cake layer into the bottom of a straight-sided 4-quart bowl (about 8 inches in diameter and 6 inches high). Spread with 1/2 cup pudding, then with 3/4 cup whipped cream. Arrange 4 banana quarters on top; top with another cake layer. Repeat 3 times, decorating final banana layer with a dollop of whipped cream. Drizzle with chocolate; top with a cherry. Sprinkle with sprinkles and nuts, if desired. Using a large spoon, divide portions among serving bowls. Serve immediately.
