Classic Sponge Cake

Now that summer berries are in season, there's nothing like the pure taste of berries served with a simple cake like sponge cake. This recipe is great baked in a tube pan, but also works well baked in two 8" layers, then sandwiched with whipped cream or lemon curd.

Before making this cake, check out the tip on beating egg whites.


Sparky Lemon Curd

This recipe was used by Barb for the filling of my delicious birthday cake. It is also great in tiny little tart shells!


From the launch party: Sundried Tomato Spread

Here's the recipe for Sundried Tomato Spread from the VanEats Launch Party.

This spread is excellent on crackers or Scandinavian mini toasts which are known as Skorpa [in German only: pick Skorpa from the pulldown menu]

Blueberry Oat Muffins

There's nothing like fresh muffins first thing in the morning! I made these Bluebery Oat Muffins for work on Friday for Kristina's birthday. These muffins also work well with other berries, fresh or dried. Try them with a combination of blueberries and cranberries for a tart treat!!

Bodacious Chocolate Zucchini Cake

This recipe hasn't been handed down by generations of Minnesotans, but it's pretty darn good! The cherries add a tart contrast and make my chocolate zucchini cake really bodacious!!


From Darrell: Edie's Zucchini Cake

Ever since I first tasted Edie's Zucchini Cake in Munich, I have completely been in love with this delicious but easy to make cake. This recipe, which has been handed down from generation to generation of Minnesotans is absolutely scrummy (moist and chocolately good)!
