Cinnamon Roll Wordless Wednesday

I asked my daughter for her cinnamon roll recipe, she sent me the ingredient list with no instructions.
The other two filling options look interesting.

I made these up for Christmas.

Merry Christmas

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. Under my tree I a couple of cook books from my daughter-in-law. I look forward to trying out recipes from the Pioneer Woman. Just looking over the recipes, it breaks it down step by step and has photos. I have already found an old favorite in ow of the books, that is the toffee squares. She calls the recipe Spreads because you spread the cookie batter in the pan and after the bars come out of the oven you immediately put the chocolate on top and spread it out once it is melted. I am ready to try this recipe out and compare it to the vintage Better Crocker recipe.

Linda's Chocolate Cake

What can I say about Linda and this delicious chocolate cake she had become known for. She had served as choir director at our church until she had been diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago. She had fought hard and always had a positive attitude. She had recently lost this battle and is going to be greatly missed. I hope I can have a positive spirit like she had whenever I am face with an impossible situation.

So back to this cake.

She had been know to be a good cook. She had baked many cakes in her lifetime for special occasions.  Everyone's favorite was this chocolate cake. Unfortunately I could not enjoy this cake to the fullest because I am allergic to chocolate.  I can tolerate low amounts of chocolate, but for me this is definitely a Death by Chocolate Cake (it would not actually kill me, but I was feeling miserable after I at this cake at the funeral) The cake was served at the funeral and the recipe printed out for everyone. So here it is:

Cake recipe:

3 cups of flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup packed cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups water
2 Tbs white vinegar
1 cup oil

Mix dry ingredients together. add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat with a mixer for two minutes. bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes in 9x13 pan that is spray greased.

Fudge frosting:

1/3 cup sweetened condense milk
1 cup sugar
5 Tbs butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Bring the condensed milk, sugar, and butter to a boil in a heave sauce pan and boil for 1.5 minutes. Add the chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted and frosting is smooth. Let cool slightly then frost the cake.

One Pumpkin Recipe Lead to Another

 Previously I did a Pumpkin post and in it I mention I was likely going to make Dreamy Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie, and I did! It is not the best picture. However it is still very tasty.
In the process of making the pie I had leftover pumpkin and sweetened condense milk. That lead to Pumpkin Ice Cream. I found a recipe on Pinterest and can be found here. It was really good on top of some Rice Krispy Treats my husband made earlier.

However I had some leftover evaporated milk that went into macaroni and cheese.

The cycle can never end.
