Raspberry pie filling and homemade chocolate frosting jazz up a packaged cake mix in this picture-perfect torte created by our Test Kitchen. With a hint of rum flavor, it’s rich and creamy for special occasions, but so simple to do, you could prepare it on weeknights, too.
"I GET a great response every time I serve this cake, and it seems like I'm forever sharing this recipe! Folks are always curious about the ingredients, and when I tel them the cake has cola in it, they are really surprised! The unusual combination of ingredient makes it moist and delicious." —Anna Baker, Blaine, Washington
This no-bake chocolate dessert from Rhonda Lanterman of Terrace, British Columbia has a tasty almond crust and smooth fluffy filling that's almost like a mousse. "It's so simple to make ahead of time and so delicious," she says.
"You'd never guess this rich-tasting delicious chocolate dessert is much lighter than a traditional cake or brownie," says Carolyn Wolbers of Loveland, Ohio. "The applesauce adds moisture and helps reduce the fat."
“During a visit several years ago, we let our 3-year-old grandson, Robert, help trim some two dozen of these Mice Cupcakes I was making for a party. It was quite a project…but he enjoyed every minute!”
