Try one of the recipes below, each rated five enthusiastic stars by our customers.
|Chocolate Pudding Pie
This pie has a chocolate cookie crumb crust, soft pudding center and whipped cream and chocolate curls on top. Reviewers say it’s just like the ones their grandmothers used to make!
Another homey, old-fashioned dessert, a buckle is a dish in which cake batter is mixed with fruit and then baked. This one stars fresh plums — customers say it’s a family favorite.
|Blueberry Crumble Pie
A crisp and crunchy crumb topping is the perfect match for a juicy berry pie filling in this delicious dessert. Comments: it’s one of the best blueberry pies readers have tried.
|Devil’s Food Layer Cake
Layers of moist, rich chocolate cake and velvety chocolate frosting: what’s not to love? Customers agree, calling it “hands-down, the best chocolate cake ever.” Enough said.
A slice of classic pound cake is buttery, rich and delicious all by itself, but it takes well to additions, too. Try berries and whipped cream or ice cream. According to reviews, it’s “always the first to go at potlucks!”
