Spice Cake

If you’re looking for a simple but flavourful cake recipe, give this one a try! Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg come together to spice up this cake just right, while the cream cheese frosting adds the perfect amount of sweetness.

Pumpkin Bread

This incredibly moist, but not too sweet pumpkin bread gets its flavour from a blend of fragrant spices – cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Cut into the bread and you’ll discover a rich ribbon of cream cheese that compliments the texture of this bread perfectly. Serve alongside a cup of hot tea or coffee for a nice afternoon treat.

Chocolate Lava Cake

These decadent and rich Chocolate Lava Cakes are easy to make and even easier to enjoy! Their warm, molten centres make for a melt-in-your mouth experience that will surely impress any guest. Serve with vanilla ice cream for a beautiful contrast in temperatures.

Butter Tart Squares

A simpler take on the classic Canadian butter tart. These squares feature a sweet and gooey filling that is complimented perfectly by a crisp shortbread crust. Take these squares up a notch by adding chopped pecans or raisins.

Boston Cream Pie

Although traditionally called a “pie”, Boston cream pie is actually a layered cake. Filled with vanilla cream and iced with a delectable chocolate glaze, this cake is sure to please the young and old alike.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake

A modern twist can breathe new life into a classic. Simply add a chef spin to your favourite dish, just like Lynn did with her Sticky Toffee Pudding. By adding a caramel made with fresh cranberries and topping the cake with a full spoon of eggnog mousse, you are guaranteed to be an exquisite host and cook. Courtesy of: Chef Lynn Crawford

Blueberry Cake

Nova Scotia wild blueberries and a crunchy brown sugar and cinnamon topping flavour this easy cake from Jill and Sharon. Enjoy it plain, or top each serving with lightly sweetened whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. Courtesy of: Jill and Sharon Thomas - 1st and 2nd Generation Egg Farmers

Double Chocolate Brownies

For the serious chocolate lover! Make this when you know everyone is going to be home. These brownies can be enjoyed sliced into squares or bars, or for a special treat, cut into heart shapes with a cookie cutter, then decorated as desired.
