Desserts recipes

  • Pears and cardamon, when baked together, have a magical quality. Makes four 4-inch cakes or one 8-inch cake.

  • Cinnamon is the standard spice for topping a crumb coffee cake. This coffee cake keeps the crumb topping and spices it up a little more by using some of the same flavors that are found in chai, including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and allspice. These spices really help to make the coffee cake memorable - and they also make you want to come back for a second slice.

    cake?  Like its friend the beet

    hit! A big shout out to Punky Egan, from MATC for developing this recipe and
    contributing it to MACSAC’s cookbook!
