    Lots of them!


    3 eggs

    1 cup sour cream

    2 teaspoons vanilla

    2-1/2 cups Swans Down Cake Flour, sifted

    2/3 cup (2-ounce) unblanched almonds, sliced, toasted, finley ground

    1 cup sugar

    1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    3/4 teaspoon salt

    2 tablespoons orange zest, grated

    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened


    1/2 cup sugar.

    1/4 cup fresh orange juice

    1/3 cup Grand Marnier


    6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finley grated

    1/2 cup heavy cream, scalded

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine eggs, 1/4 cup sour cream and vanilla. Set aside. Mix together dry ingredients and orange zest in large bowl. Add butter and remaining sour cream. Mix on low speed until moistened. Beat on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add egg mixture in thirds, mixing well after each addition. Spread batter in prepared 9-cup fluted tube pan. Bake until tester inserted in center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Remove cake from oven. Poke holes in top of cake. Brush with 1/2 of Grand Marnier Syrup. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Invert onto cooling rack. Brush with remaining syrup. Cool before glazing with Chocolate Ganache. TIP: Process toasted almonds with sugar and orange zest in a food processor for perfect texture. GRAND MARNIER SYRUP: Heat sugar, orange juice and Grand Marnier in small saucepan until dissolved. (note: For non-alcoholic version, replace with additional orange juice.) CHOCOLATE GANACHE GLAZE: Process in food processor or grate until very fine. Scald cream in small saucepan. Add grated chocolate. Cover and let sit for five minutes. Gently stir until smooth. If necessary, stir on low heat to melt chocolate. Place cake on cooling rack with waxed paper underneath to catch drippings. Pour ganache glaze over cake.


    For Cake

    1 ¼ cups sifted Swans Down Cake Flour

    1 ½ cups plus 5 tablespoons sugar

    1 ½ cups (about 12) egg whites, at room temperature

    1 ½ teaspoon cream of tartar

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    ¼ teaspoon almond extract

    ¼ teaspoon salt

    For cream filling

    1 cup heavy whipping cream

    2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    For raspberry sauce

    2 pints raspberries

    6 tablespoons superfine sugar

    4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice


    1 ½ pints raspberries

    Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Make cream filling: In a bowl with an electric mixer beat together cream, sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Make raspberry sauce: In a food processor or blender puree all ingredients. Strain mixture through a fine sieve, pressing firmly with a rubber spatula. Make cake: In a bowl sift together flour and ½ cup sugar four times. In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat together egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla, almond extract, and salt until they hold soft peaks. Gradually beat in remaining 1 cup plus 5 tablespoons sugar until whites hold glossy peaks, about 3 minutes. Sift a fourth of flour mixture evenly over egg mixture and with a rubber spatula fold gently until almost incorporated (do not stir or mix). Repeat process three more times until flour is incorporated. Pour batter into a 10-inch tube pan and bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until cake springs back when pressed lightly. Invert cake onto rack, leaving pan on top of cake 1 hour. Run a thin knife around sides and center tube of pan and unmold. Split cake in half horizontally with a serrated knife. Place bottom half of cake on a cake plate and spread with about 1 cup cream filling. Arrange half of raspberries on filling and top with remaining cake half. Spread remaining cream onto top of cake and cover with remaining raspberries. Serve cake with raspberry sauce.


    For topping

    ¾ stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

    2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

    1 tablespoon dark rum

    3 cups sliced peeled peaches

    For cake

    1 ½ cups Swans Down Cake Flour

    2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

    ½ teaspoon salt

    ½ stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened

    ½ cup granulated sugar

    1 large egg

    ½ cup milk

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and butter

    a 9- by 2-inch round cake pan.

    Make topping: In small saucepan melt butter with brown sugar and rum over moderate heat, stirring occasionally. Spread topping evenly in pan and arrange peaches on top.

    Make cake: In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl with an electric mixer beat together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg until combined. In a small bowl combine milk and vanilla. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in batches alternately with milk mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture and beating until batter is just combined (do not overbeat).

    Spread batter evenly over peaches and bake in middle of oven until a tester comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Immediately invert cake onto a serving plate, leaving pan on top of cake 30 minutes. Carefully remove pan and serve cake warm or at room temperature.


    For frosting

    18 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

    3 cups whipping cream

    2 to 5 teaspoons light corn syrup

    For cake

    1 ¾ cup Swans Down Cake Flour

    ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch process)

    1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

    ¾ teaspoon baking soda

    ¾ teaspoon salt

    1 cup sour cream

    1/3 cup water

    2 ½ teaspoons vanilla

    2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened

    1 1/3 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

    3 large eggs

    Make frosting: In a heavy saucepan melt chocolate chips in cream over low heat, stirring constantly, until combined and thickened, 20 to 25 minutes. Increase heat to medium low, and cook, stirring, 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in corn syrup. Transfer to a large metal bowl and chill, covered. Stir frosting every 15 to 20 minutes until cool enough to spread, about 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line bottoms of two 9- by 2-inch buttered cake pans with parchment paper. Butter and flour pans, knocking out excess. Place 1 cake layer on a cake plate and spread evenly with about 1 cup frosting. Top with remaining cake layer and spread remaining frosting evenly over top and sides of cake. Make cake: In a bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl whisk together sour cream, water and vanilla. In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in batches alternately with sour cream mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture and beating until batter is blended well. Divide batter between pans and smooth tops. Bake layers in middle of oven 25 to 30 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Cool cake layers in pans on racks 10 minutes before turning out onto racks. Remove paper from cakes and cool completely.

    greased 9-inch layer pans at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true
