Nutella Gooey Butter Cake


One bummer about Valentine's Day being on a weekday is that it's not always easy to plan a fun meal at home (if that's what you prefer, like me!).  Especially a spectacular dessert to relax with after dinner, or after the kid(s) are in bed.  But it's V-Day, and of course you want something special.

If you're wanting to make something for tomorrow and just don't have a lot of time, I suggest trying out this Nutella Gooey Butter Cake.  It's rich and decadant, like a good Valentine's Day dessert should be, but it's easy peasy!  The use of a store bought cake mix helps with that.  It does take awhile to bake and cool, but it's pretty hands off.  Let it cool while eating dinner and bathing the little ones!


Nutella Gooey Butter Cake
Ingredients:
For the Cake-
1 18-1/4 oz. box Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
1 large egg
1 stick butter, melted
For the Filling - 
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup Nutella
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
For serving-
Powdered Sugar
Whipped Cream

Directions:
Heat oven to 325 degrees and lightly grease a 9x13" pan.

Using an electric mixer, combine cake mix, 1 egg and melted butter until well incorporated.  Press into bottom of greased pan with fingers.

Using an electric mixer, blend cream cheese, 2 beaten eggs, nutella and vanilla.  Then slowly add powdered sugar and beat until smooth.

Spread filling over cake batter, and bake for 40-45 minutes/  Do not overbake, the center should still be a little gooey.

Cool and dust with powdered sugar on top.

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Exclusive Pumping - why I did it twice, and some tips & tricks

This is a story I've been wanting to share for several years, in fact one of the reasons I decided to make the switch to more of a life blog versus a food blog. So bear with me here!

I have two children. I tried breastfeeding both of them, and was unsuccessful with both, for different reasons. One wouldn't latch. One my supply was too fast and plentiful. I tried a few things because I really really wanted to breastfeed, but it was stressing me out, so I looked in to other options, which is where I learned about exclusive pumping. 

 What is exclusive pumping (or EP)? It's when a mother expresses her milk to feed her child, rather than feeding "straight from the source". Prior to having Tyler, I knew very little about pumping, but I knew that since I planned to breastfeed and planned to work after maternity leave, I would need a pump. But that was about it. I remember the weekend before he was born sitting on my bed playing with the pump and thinking the manual was…
