Cookbook Corner – and Giveaway – Delicious Dump Cakes

I am SO excited to talk about my newest “Cookbook Corner”! I can not imagine how fun this book was to write – because it was a BLAST to taste a lot of the recipes inside. 


“Deliciois Dump Cakes” By: Roxanne Wyss and Kathy Moore

This book is short in length, but HUGE in fun and flavor! I can not remember the last time I had such FUN recipe testing a book for my “Cookbook Corner”! I am highly HIGHLY recommending this to everyone who loves to bake. And do not let “dump cakes” scare you away – it is great! Trust me…

Let us start with QVC and “In the Kitchen with David”. That is where I first discovered this book – and my interest quickly peaked when I seen David take a bite of the “Peanut Butter Cup Dump Cake” – and did his famous “happy dance”. I had to learn more. And can we talk about Roxanne and Kathy? They are so cute! 

As soon as I got the book – I flipped over it, and knew that I would love it. For those of you who are wondering about a cookbook using cake mixes to make “dump cakes” – just admit it already – you use them – and you love them. But – if you really would rather NOT use a cake mix, Roxanne and Kathy have recipes to make your own homemade “cake mix”. 

The recipes in this book are fun, festive, versatile and delicious! So many different flavor combinations are profiled in this book – from cakes with blueberries, lemon, chocolate, peanut butter, orange, cherry, strawberry, and on and on. 

The photos are fabulous, the recipes foolproof and delicious, and one of my FAVORITE recipes? The “Peanut Butter Cup Dump Cake” on page 81. When you get this book – TRY IT FIRST! 

Here’s a picture…


Look delicious!? Look how it looks when it’s actually BAKED – 


IT. IS. DELICIOUS! And seriously – one of the best dump cakes I have ever had in my life. And guess what!? I used a cake mix! Yay! Ha!!! It was fun – and it was FABULOUS! 

To buy “Delicious Dump Cakes”, click here – http://www.amazon.com/Delicious-Dump-Cakes-Desserts-Minutes/dp/1250082633

AND. GUESS. WHAT??? 


I loved this book so much – I immediately ordered another one – for YOU! My newest giveaway – is this book and you can enter to win! 

HOW!? 

Email me your name and address – blaisethebaker@gmail.com 

A random winner will be picked Monday June 6th, 2016. 

Good luck!

Blaise the Baker Blaise the Baker One Year Anniversary

THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING!!! Wow… What can I say!? It has been ONE YEAR since I started my blog! Time FLIES let me tell you – whew! I have thought and thought about what to write in this post – this ONE YEAR Anniversary post…and honestly – the only thing I can really say is THANK YOU. Thank you so much for your love and support. Thank you for your dedication, for your emails, feedback, encouragement and thank you for your faith in me. A year ago I would have never dreamed about the opportunities that have presented themselves to me – or about all of the wonderful people I have met – or the friendships that I hold so close to my heart. I would have never dreamed about all that has happened – and I could not be anymore thankful or appreciative.

I SO enjoy doing what I do – writing and creating recipes, sharing them, sharing pictures and discussions and hearing (and SEEING) your pictures and feedback. Nothing makes me happier than a satisfied person – writing to me – sharing with me – how much they love my CHEW THIS column, or how much they love my blog… That really means absolutely everything to me…

To show my appreciation, I am offering a GIVEAWAY!!!

AND – the winner will be announced TODAY!!!

A “Williams-Sonoma” $20 gift card and two cookbooks.

Blaise the Baker One Year Anniversary Giveaway

COOKBOOK ONE: “Glorious Grits”: The South’s favorite grain is gaining popularity throughout the country as today’s top chefs and home cooks reinvent this simple, satisfying grain into Glorious Grits.

Inspired by an Alabama family whose gristmill supplies organic grains to top chefs across the country, Glorious Grits will appeal to both beginning and expert cooks wanting to tease the palate as well as add healthy whole grains to their diets.

Enjoy a taste of the South with over 100 fresh, ­flavorful recipes for stone-ground grits, cornmeal, and polenta. From breakfast to lunch to dinnertime and dessert, Glorious Grits offers spectacular possibilities for putting whole-grain goodness on the table.

Susan McEwen McIntosh knows her grits! Born and raised in the South, Susan worked for several years with the food staff of Southern Living® magazine. She’s watched as her brother produced grits, cornmeal, and polenta from organic corn in his busy gristmill. After talking with notable chefs from coast to coast, Susan knows the secrets of transforming old-fashioned grits into new and sophisticated dishes. Now this registered dietitian and author of the first Cooking Light® Cookbook combines her knowledge of nutrition with a passion for cooking to present creative grits, cornmeal, and polenta recipes for Southern food enthusiasts across the country.

COOKBOOK TWO: “Mini Donuts”: Say hello to a brand-new way to brighten your morning—or any time of day! Jam-packed with gooey jellies, oozing with rich custards and creams, and covered with mouthwatering toppings, these mini donuts are bursting with big flavor. From recipes for the traditional donuts everyone craves like Chocolate Cake and Powered Sugar to fun, new twists like Chocolate-Bacon-Maple, the donuts in this cookbook will leave you begging for more than just a dozen. Best of all, almost all the recipes can be made in a mini donut maker appliance, a stovetop, or an oven, so all you’ll need to create these bite-sized snacks is a hankering for something sweet.

Inside this cookbook, you’ll find helpful step-by-step instructions and 100 yummy donut recipes, including:

Maple-glazed
White chocolate–red velvet
Pineapple upside-down cake
Butterscotch-banana
Chai tea
S’mores

With Mini Donuts, you’ll never again have to wait in line for your favorite bakery treat!

BOTH of these cookbooks are personal favorites of mine – and I am so excited to be sharing them with one lucky winner! AND “Williams-Sonoma” – how AMAZING is that place!? 

SO – how do you enter to win!?
