This pudding, inspired by the highly delicious White Chocolate Bread Pudding at the Palace Cafe, has the soul of a New Orleans bread pudding. But it's gussied up for the season with cranberries, which add a wonderful tart contrast to the white chocolate in the butter and cream-rich custard. More

This pudding, inspired by the highly delicious White Chocolate Bread Pudding at the Palace Cafe, has the soul of a New Orleans bread pudding. But it's gussied up for the season with cranberries, which add a wonderful tart contrast to the white chocolate in the butter and cream-rich custard, and a nice glug of bourbon, which certainly doesn't hurt anything. It's a perfectly decadent entrée into the Thanksgiving season. More

Cakespy: Candy Corn Pecan Pie

The idea is simple: classic pecan pie, plus candy corn. The candy corn melts so beautifully into the corn syrup and brown sugar mixture that it must feel like it's coming home; it adds a nice, vanilla-y sweetness to the pie that will satisfy even the sweetest of teeth. More

Cakespy: Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs

Sweets cakespy 16 comments

The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs, but in my opinion, a slightly more complex flavor. It's the perfect dessert counterpart to the classic Scotch Egg: similar visually, and every bit as decadent. Happy Easter indeed. More

The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs, but in my opinion, a slightly more complex flavor owing to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookies. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a pleasant texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior. More

Cakespy: Candy Corn Muffins

Sweets cakespy 2 comments

I find corn muffins to be an exceedingly lovable food, especially when they contain fat kernels of corn. But since October is prime time for candy, I wondered—what might happen if I swapped real corn for candy corn? More

Cakespy: Candy Corn Upside-Down Cake

Sweets cakespy 5 comments

Recently, I asked my favorite Pineapple Upside-Down Cake recipe a serious question: "What would you like to be for Halloween this year?". After considering various options, such as Doughnut Upside-Down Cake, Tarte Tatin, and various other options for the inverted dessert, we decided to go with something festive: Candy Corn Upside-Down Cake.

Candy Corn Upside-Down Cake

What happened when I baked it up was a surprise: the brown sugar and butter topping fused with the melty candy corn to form some sort of unholy, monstrous Halloween caramel-sugar topping, which dripped back into the cake when inverted. The result? The entire buttery cake tasted like it had been basted in candy corn. And if you're a candy corn lover, that might just be a beautiful thing. More

Cakespy: Pumpkin Bread Stuffed with Cookie Dough

Sweets cakespy 9 comments

While pumpkin bread is wonderful in its simplicity, it is possible to heighten your seasonal eating by adding a healthy helping of chocolate chip cookie dough to the batter. It gives the bread a decadently gooey center, and the spiciness of the pumpkin bread works beautifully with the brown sugar and chocolate in the cookies. Feel like gilding the lily? Go ahead, serve it with ice cream. More
