Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Reminiscent of a soufflé dessert, this cake recipe combines luscious orange filling with whipped cream.
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 2 (9-inch) round cake pans; set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside.
Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup butter and 1 tablespoon orange zest in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating just until combined. Spread batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake 27-32 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients in medium bowl. Beat at medium speed until fluffy. Reserve 1/2 cup filling.
To assemble cake, place one layer onto serving plate. Spread remaining filling over cake. Top with remaining cake layer. Cover; refrigerate while preparing frosting.
Combine reserved filling and all frosting ingredients in large bowl. Beat at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Frost top and sides of cake. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 6 hours. Garnish with orange zest, if desired. Store refrigerated.
*Substitute 2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 3/4 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

Everyone loved the cake. My family doesn't care for overly sweet frostings...this was perfect. Definitely will make this again.
I made this cake using 9" round pans and I doubled the recipe and made it in two 9 X 13 pans for a birthday cake using orange "Jelly Belly" jelly beans to spell out the name of the birthday girl. This is a great tasting cake. The cake, filling and the frosting have such a wonderful orange flavor because of the zest used. I highly recommend this recipe.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.

ginger and sesame to a

Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
