When her mom was told to avoid sugar and fats, Annette Abbott got busy in Charlotte, North Carolina and whipped up this light, delectable dessert. “Mom loves indulging her sweet tooth while following doctor’s orders,” she laughs.
“This is my lighter version of a Boston cream pie cake. Both the glaze and the filling are fat-free. This is a dessert you'll be pleased to serve on your holiday table.” Nancy Zimmerman - Cape May Court House, New Jersey
This recipe came from one of the best cooks in my ladies' Bible class at church. The orange and chocolate combination is delicious. One of my hobbies is collecting recipes, especially those for desserts, which suits my chocolate-loving husband just fine!
These cupcakes are easy to whip up, but everyone will think you've worked for hours because of the "secret" creamy filling inside. They're great for picnics and lunch boxes. —Susan Muehmer, Delaware, Ontario
I received this recipe from my best friend over 10 years ago...and I still get rave reviews whenever I serve it. The zucchini makes it very moist. My husband and I plant grass seed and have a few animals on our farmette here in Lancaster County.
My mother gave me the recipe for this moist, fudgy cake. I like to make it because it's quick and doesn't need frosting, and it's also a family favorite. I am a cook at an elementary school and also help husband Denny on our farm. We and our three sons are active in 4-H.
This recipe is my mother's—she's an excellent baker and cook. There was always some new food for my three brothers and me to try when we were growing up! I enjoy baking, too, as well as gardening and making stained glass windows and lamps.—Juliann Nelson, Minneapolis, Minnesota
