You’ve probably had doughnuts and coffee before, but I’ll bet you’ve never had them quite like this! This towering beauty is made from layers of homemade sour cream doughnuts and a light, fluffy mocha whipped cream.

Thank you to McCormick for sponsoring this post! Gather round, children, gather round. Allow me to rest in my creaky rocking chair, take up my knitting, and tell you a story about young Elizabeth’s magical 21st birthday.  

Hazelnut Meringue Cake

Let us now take a moment of silence to honor the 30+ egg whites who gave their lives in service of making the perfect hazelnut meringue. Rest in peace, good buddies. Lest you gasp and clutch your grocery budget in horror, this recipe doesn’t require anywhere near 30 egg whites. It does, apparently, require one…

Brownie Bread Pudding

Brownie Bread Pudding | From SugarHero.com

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind of people who aren’t sure if they have extra cookies or brownies just lying around their house, all shrugged shoulders and devil-may-care about it, and the kind of people who know with pinpoint accuracy the location of every item of sugary value within a…

As in, fourth grade style, write-a-MASH-note-to-a-piece-of-cake like-like desserts. And I also enjoy less popular ingredients and flavor combinations. So when I come up with…

Ice Cream Sundae Cake

Ice Cream Sundae Cake | From SugarHero.com

Quick! Name the summeriest thing you can think of. Sand-crusted weekends at the beach? Long, sticky days at the pool working on your skin cancer tan? Frosty drinks beneath a palm tree? Hearing that horrible Iggy Azalea song one too many times and throwing your radio across the room in disgust? All good answers, but…

Banana Bread Tiramisu

Banana Bread Tiramisu | From SugarHero.com

I love banana bread. I love tiramisu. I love making recipes with a bajillion components (although I kind of hating writing out those long recipes…sigh). I really love putting on my fancy pants and going to town with frou-frou decorations. So obviously, these banana bread tiramisus in edible chocolate wrappers are basically my own culinary…
