Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Poke Cake

Goodness, summer has come in with something of a bang! Coming from Texas I am used to the heat, and I sort of perversely look forward to summer baking. Yes, the oven makes the house hot but if you plan it just right you can get a cake baked before the heat of the day and have it cooled and ready for dinner. This is just such a cake. It is great because you serve it chilled because of the scrumptious pudding filling/topping. This is my...

Raspberry Nutella Bread Pudding

I will admit, I am always looking for new ways to eat Nutella. It is probably one of the tastiest spreads out there, and I will admit to occasionally eating it straight from the jar.  No, not my proudest moments.  Anyway, I have been up to my eyeballs in pies this week so when it came time to bake something sweet just for me, and not for testing, I decided Nutella would have to be involved. This is a variation on a traditional English...
