This Pandora Tiramisu is easy to prepare, 100% scrumptious, and will have your family and friends thinking you were slaving for hours in the kitchen. Use Il Pondoro Di Verona by Bauli to make this recipe so much simpler.  Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts, and this recipe is show stopper!

Lots of you have been writing to me asking for awesome Easter dessert ideas so how about these Easter Cupcakes? This recipe comes from “The Pioneer Woman Cooks” cookbook, and it is fabulous. If you’re short on time, I have also included a “cupcake express” recipe to save you time. Either way, I just simply sprinkled mine with spring sprinkles, a perfect look for this time of year.

Easter Dessert: Seriously Simple Pound Cake

While at my conference last week in Denver, I had a conversation with a cookbook publisher to kick around some cookbook ideas. He asked me,  ‘What is it that I am specifically passionate about?” Obviously, I am passionate about this blog, or I wouldn’t be doing it. One of my other clients said, “I light up when I talk about the blog”. So, I started thinking… what is it that I love that I would want to do a cookbook on? I love simple, fresh food. I love sweet treats that are easy to prepare, but still taste awesome. I love easy meals that even my kids will eat without complaining. I love when I can cut corners to make a recipe a bit “lighter,” but without sacrificing flavor. I am not sure where this gets me when thinking of a cookbook title, but I hope it will come to me soon. Actually, I am tossing around a few ideas, but I need your help. If you have any thoughts on why you like my blog, or the recipes on my blog, please email me and let me know. 

 

Here’s an offering of a simple Easter or spring dessert-Simple Classic Pound Cake. I am passionate about it! Hope you like it on Easter weekend or anytime during the year.
