Grilled Peach and Vanilla Cake Trifle with Golden Syrup Whipped Cream

I guess you could say I have Georgia on my mind. It makes sense considering I was in Atlanta last weekend for BlogHer Food.  Now, I could use this space to discuss the actual event, but I don’t think it is necessary.  So many bloggers have posted their thoughts, Linda and Dianne for example, and I would rather share with you a craving that is directly linked to the conference.  During lunch on the first day we were served what...

Cornmeal Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting

Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake

When I was a child swirled pound cake was an utter mystery to me. I wondered how they were able to get the chocolate batter to make such intricate designs in the finished cake.  Now that I am older I understand that the oven does nearly all the swirling because as the cake bakes the batter shifts and swirls naturally.  Just like snow flakes, they are all unique.  So, maybe the mystery is solved, but I must admit I still get a little...
