Tried It Out Thursday: German Chocolate Bundt Cake

This "Tried it Out Thursday" post is a little bit different than the others, it is actually a recipe I shared that someone else tried.  I received a very sweet email about my sister's German Chocolate Bundt cake that I would like to share.  Candice (my sister) does not give herself enough credit for the great cook she is so here is the proof and the proof that this is a SERIOUSLY delicious recipe!!

I just had to write about the bundt cake recipe you got from a relative.  It it awesome!!!!
I got a call late yesterday to go to a small get together for a teacher I used to work with who moved to Virginia. She came back to NJ for a couple of days and another teacher wanted to have the small get together today from 3 to 5. I told the teacher who called me I would bring a dessert.
Got off the phone and remembered your recipe since I love German choc cake.  Had all the ingre. and made it so fast. It was so easy!!  Well, had to have a piece at the party and I was blown over!!! So light, yet so very moist and hearty.  The cake rose really high so I thought it would be light and dry. Not the case at all.  Little kids at the party even ate it.  I ususally prefer scratch cakes but this one is amazing.  Everyone loves a good bundt cake since they are easy to eat and dont have all that sweet frosting  Sorry I went on about this so long but I cant get over the great texture and taste and Moistness!!!.  It is really a keeper. Cant wait for my sister in laws to taste it. They are cake mix bakers.

After this email I asked if I could use her nice comment and this is the reply I got:

Of course, you can add my comment to the recipe. We have to get as many people as possible to try it. It's probably one of the best cake mix cakes I've ever eaten. It really has everything: fairly inexpensive to make if you get cake mix and frosting on sale, extremely easy to make and taste is phenominal. I think making it the day before serving made it even moister. I didnt even do the melted chocolate drizzle; just bought my pampered chef powdered sugar shaker with me to the party and when I took the plastic and foil off of the cake, I just sprinkled with the confectioners' sugar.  I'm just happy to know there's someone out there that does my kind of cooking. Cooking for families.  Thanks again for your great blog and recipes. I dont know where you get the time to do everything you do.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
