Always room for dessert!
I took this dessert to a church supper last week and several people requested the recipe. I am sharing it with you today. It’s a favorite of my 98 year old Mom.
I found the recipe in the United Methodist Church cookbook. It was submitted by Sue Nelson. If you like cheese cake you will love this!
1 chocolate cake mix (Devil’s food or German Chocolate - I use German Chocolate)
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans
1 stick butter
1 (8oz) cream cheese
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Grease a 9x13 inch cake pan; sprinkle coconut followed by the nuts on bottom of pan.
Mix cake as directed on box; pour over coconut and nuts. Mix melted butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar; spoon over cake.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. I always check it after 30 minutes. Cool and serve with a little whipped topping. When the cake cools the surface looks bumpy and lumpy.

The exercise group I attend asked me to put my popover recipe in the paper this week, seems I made them for the group one time. I don’t make them very often because you can’t use the oven for anything else while they are baking and of course they are best hot out of the oven! I do have popover pans but I have seen recipes where they suggest using custard cups or muffin tins. I have never done that so I’m not sure how it works out!
My popover pans happen to be a small size so this recipe makes 12 for me, but 6 regular size ones, they are really good served with honey butter!
2 large eggs
1 cup 2 % or whole milk
1 cup flour
1/2 scant tsp salt
2 Tbs melted butter
Grease 6 regular popover pans, also the rims. Put all the above ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth, let rest 15 minutes, then mix briefly and pour into cups filling 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes then at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. DO NOT OPEN the oven door until the time is up. Remove from oven. Using a sharp knife, pierce top to let steam escape and serve!
How is that for easy? Hope you enjoy them! Have a great week and enjoy the warmer weather!

St. Patrick’s Day Dessert!
I always like to make something green on St Patrick’s Day and this dessert fits the bill!
My friend Jan Oberg shared this recipe with me a few years ago. She said it’s a favorite, one that is requested by her family when they visit. We like it too! I find that if you put the can of evaporated milk in the refrigerator overnight it whips up just like real whipped cream. I also put my bowl and beaters in the refrigerator about an hour before I am going to use them just for good measure!
1 pkg. crushed Oreo cookies mixed with 1/2 cup melted butter. (Set aside a few crushed cookies before you add the butter for decorating the top). Press the cookie/ butter mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
Filling - Mix together and let almost set:
1 pkg. lime jello ( 3 oz size)
1 cup boiling water
3 (generous) Tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
Green food coloring
Beat 1 large can cold evaporated milk ‘til very fluffy; add thickened jello mixture and a little green food coloring: beat a little longer. Pour over crumbs in cake pan; sprinkle remaining crumbs over top. Chill until set.
Is spring here yet????
