A Countdown of the top 7 “sweets” recipes that were published on Cosmopolitan Cornbread this year.
When I was a kid, my parents enjoyed occasionally taking the family out to dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. One of the biggest treats about going to this particular restaurant, was that when we went, Mom & Dad would let us get virgin Piña Coladas. I’ve always loved pineapple and coconut together, and to this day piña colada is one of my favorite flavors of things. This cake is a fun way to play up those flavors with pineapple cake and a coconut frosting.
I actually lost count of how many times I made this exact cake this year. My husband repeatedly came home and asked me to make one for him to take in to work.
Blackberry scones drizzled with a simple lemon glaze makes for a delicious brunch or “I love you” breakfast.
Made with whole wheat flour, packed with zucchini & carrots and topped with a thin layer of barely sweet frosting, this snack cake is a pleasure…and not a guilty one!
2014 was a popular year for zucchini recipes! Rustic Zucchini cake is an unpretentious, moist and flavorful, lightly sweet cake topped with dreamy cream cheese frosting.
Apple fritter waffles aren’t terribly sweet, but they combine two of my favorite things – apple fritters and breakfast waffles!
A moist buttermilk quick bread with cinnamon swirled through the center and crunchy cinnamon top.
And …..drum roll please………

Tender, lemony cake topped with a creamy frosting filled with bits of fresh strawberry – these are irresistible!
