Heavenly Almond Pound Cake
I love to bake and eat pound cake. This one was wonderful! Almond is a flavor that I've had to grow to like. I'm a traditional vanilla extract fan. But, I'm trying to expand my taste horizons and almond extract is part of those horizons. This pound cake had a classic pound cake texture and the perfect buttery crown, my favorite part.
Irresistible Ganache Brownies
It's funny how simple ingredients can come together to form such a rich dessert. These brownies are dense and chewy. I chose to use milk chocolate in my ganache, maybe that's not the classic type of chocolate but it's what I like. I may have been a little generous with the pecans, too, but that only added to the joy of eating these. These brownies need to stay chilled in the refrigerator. One small piece goes a long way to satisfying a chocolate craving.
