Lemon Pound Cake
This wonderful rich, sweet lemon pound cake is downright zingy and the candied lemon slices are a beautiful bittersweet topping that’s better than frosting. The best part, though: when you taste it you won’t miss all the butter we cut out compared with a traditional pound cake recipe.
Rocky Road Brownies
These super-rich brownies made chocolaty with plenty of cocoa powder have less fat than other brownies, but stay extra gooey and good with marshmallows, nuts and chocolate chunks on top.
Glazed Chocolate-Pumpkin Bundt Cake
Warm Chocolate Pudding
This warm pudding has a marvelous deep chocolaty flavor, but it’s low in fat and super-quick to make. Don’t skimp on the quality of cocoa with this one–treat yourself to the good stuff.
Frozen Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Chilled Key Lime Mousse
This refreshing chilled Key lime mousse is a perfect union of cream and foam, tangy lime and soft sweet custard. The method is simple but a little unusual–you make a custard with fresh Key lime juice rather than milk or cream. Key limes, which are about the size of a Ping-Pong ball, are wonderfully fragrant and more acidic than regular limes. They are available all year at well-stocked supermarkets. If you can’t find them, by all means use regular limes.
Rich, creamy, vanilla bean-flecked pudding tempers the tart-sweet pomegranate compote. Pick out small, festive glass dessert dishes for this pretty parfait.
Lemon Poppy-Seed Cake
We love that Bundt cakes don’t demand frosting–just let a sweet lemon glaze run over the poppy-seed cake and you’ve got perfection.
