Quilter’s Recipe for Oct. 19, 2008

19 10 2008

This is a recipe that is often made by various people in my bee. It is easy and can be made sugar free. Serve it hot with vanilla ice cream—YUM!

Dump Cake

2 sticks of butter
1 whte or yellow cake mix
2 cans of sugar free or regular apple pie filling (you may also use peach or cherry or any other filling that you prefer)
Grease a 9 x 11 pan.  Pour in the cans of pie filling and spread evenly across the pan. Dump in cake mix and evenly distribute over the pie filling.  Melt the butter completely and pour over the top of the cake mix.

Place the pan in a 400 degree oven for 45 min-60 min until browned around the edged and somewhat firm. Serve hot.


Dangerous 5 Minute Chocolate Cake

14 09 2008

Okay, I realize that chocolate cake isn’t really a necessary tool to do professional embroidery or longarm quilting, but it does act as a creative agent so I think it is appropriate to pass along this recipe from a fellow quilter.



1 Coffee Mug

4 tablespoons flour (that’s plain flour, not self-rising)

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons baking cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) some nuts


Small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the

egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla,

and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3

minutes on high. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but

don’t be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

(this can serve 2 if you want to share!)

Now, why is this the most dangerous chocolate cake? Because you are now only 5 minutes away from it any time day or night. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
