    eyedocbakes

    Imagine a super fluffy and light bundt cake, with a lemony flavor and bursts of fresh blueberries throughout, covered in a homemade fresh blueberry purple glaze…that is this bundt cake! It’s the best lemon blueberry bundt cake that I’ve ever had – and it went fast around here! Hopefully you will love it as much as I do! It’s finally starting to feel like spring, and with that, I always want to make light and fruity desserts. Still riding the wave of citrus season (thank you cute little backyard lemon tree!), but starting to notice more and more berries in…

    This is the cutest, most colorful little loaf cake! It is made with limes, Lucky Charms cereal, and a little bit of Irish whisky (which you can totally leave out if you’re making this for kiddos). The cake is fluffy, and super yummy to have with tea, milk, or a cup of coffee. The glaze has a refreshing lime flavor that just adds some awesome tanginess to every bite!  When I set out to make this cake, I realized I don’t bake many green desserts! At first I thought I would make the whole cake green, but something about that…

    It’s citrus season! That means it’s time to bake all of the lemon-y treats! These teeny little bundt cakes are so full of lemon flavor, the vanilla lemon glaze adds an extra oomph of lemon, and the cakes themselves are made with rosemary infused milk, which adds just a hint of a warm rosemary aftertaste. A perfect and easy treat to make, that you should definitely have in your citrus season rotation! I have to admit, though it’s citrus season now, I really have access to beautiful lemons all year round. We’re quite lucky – because we have a little…

  • Classic Carrot Cake

    If there’s a cake that really makes me feel all the warm and fuzzy Fall feelings…it’s carrot cake. I know what you’re thinking. What about pumpkin? Or apple? Carrot cake has all the Fall spices though, and it’s moist and so flavorful with every bite. You can add walnuts, or raisins, or not add anything at all. . . and it still turns out great! You don’t need cake flour, all purpose is just fine, and you don’t even need butter for the cake! So, without further ado, I think it’s time for an updated carrot cake recipe. I’m talking…

  • Cherry Shortcakes

      You know one of the best things about summer? Stone Fruits! What is a stone fruit? It’s basically any fruit that has a fleshy pulp on the outside, and a single shell, that surrounds a seed, on the inside. So, cherries (!), peaches, plums, etc. I often have a hard time deciding what my favorite baking season is. On the one hand, there’s summer – which gives us alllll the cherries, and berries, and stone fruits, and just everything amazing. Then, there’s Fall, which, I mean, is basically a food blogger’s dream. It’s not too hot outside so you…

      “Chocolate is nature’s way of making up for Mondays.” So I haven’t read the books or seen the movie – but – the movie did come out this week, and I needed an excuse to make a quick little chocolate cake – with 5 – not 50 (can you imagine how long that would take?!) shades of grey frosting! I was worried about using coffee in the cake but I had been hearing for a while that this makes for a super moist dark chocolate cake – and you can’t even taste the coffee. The rumors are true! So…
