This lusciously decadent dessert is as impressive as it is simple to make. The dulce de leche sauce may be made in advance; it keeps well in the refrigerator for several days. (We like to make a double batch and use the extra poured over ice cream or pound cake or as a dipping sauce for doughnuts or churros.)
You either love it or you hate it but carrot cake is never going out of style. One bite of this cake just might win you over if you are not a fan of carrot cake. It’s rich, moist, and full of great flavor. When covered with a creamy goat cheese frosting or traditional cream cheese frosting it is hard to resist. Applesauce can be substituted for pineapple and if you are allergic to walnuts they can be omitted from the recipe.

When I gave a version of these caramel bars to a neighbor of mine a couple of years ago, they immediately asked for the recipe.

I became obsessed with creating the perfect pumpkin pie and made at least a half dozen variations. My testers and I agreed it was time to stop when we tasted this one with its miracle of an eggless custard filling that’s both sweet and spicy.

Bring this moist, tender cake to the table right in the skillet—it looks as homey and beautiful as it tastes.

The cake freezes beautifully, as long as it is well-wrapped and thawed slowly to room temperature.
To ensure your cream puffs stay nice and puffed: 1. Cook the flour long enough so that the dough truly comes together and pulls away from the side of the pan and 2. Add the eggs one at a time, fully beating the dough before the next addition.
A clafoutis rises dramatically as it cooks, and starts falling the minute it comes out of the oven. Don’t let that dissuade you from making it, even a little in advance: it is just as delicious—and also appealing looking—when fallen. Clafoutis are generally served right out of the skillet.
