Christmas cherry Cake

Cherry Cake

1 Can cherry pie filling
1 large can crushed pineapple juice and all
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 stick butter
1 cup pecans

Spray a 9x13 glass pan with Pam. Spread pineapple over the bottom of pan. Mix cherry filling with cake mix and pour over pineapple. Shave butter on top of mixture. Sprinkle nuts on top. Bake 1 hour at 350.

A variation is to put cherry pie filling on top of pineapple and then put cake mix on top without mixing.
A white or cherry cake mix can be used instead of the yellow cake mix.

Easy Steak Recipe

I was looking for a recipe in some old cookbooks and decided to put some of them on my blog.
These Recipes come from the United Methodist Church Jasper, Mo. 1979 and 1981 cookbooks.
I remember in those days raising a family I was always looking for cheap and easy recipes to prepare for my family. Some are direct and to the point without measuring or other things that a new up to date cookbook would have.
I will try to post a few recipes some I have tried and some I have not.
If you have tried any please feel free to post a comment.

Easy Steak Recipe

Hot Chocolate Cupcakes





Vanilla frosting "marshmallows" are piped onto devil's food cupcakes to mimic the look of a favorite hot drink. Don't forget the pretzel "cup handles!"
Recipe from Betty Crocker

1/2 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® devil's food cake mix (about 1 2/3 cups)

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1 cup Betty Crocker® Whipped vanilla frosting

1/2 cup marshmallow creme

1/4 teaspoon unsweetened baking cocoa

6 miniature pretzel twists, broken in half

Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and egg with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

Bake 17 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

In small bowl, mix frosting and marshmallow creme. Spoon into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut 3/8-inch tip off 1 corner of bag. (Or spoon mixture onto cupcakes instead of piping.)

Pipe 3 small dollops of frosting mixture on top of each cupcake to look like melted marshmallows. Sprinkle with cocoa. Press pretzel half into side of each cupcake for cup handle. Store loosely covered.



If you like peppermint, frost these fun cupcakes with the frosting mixture, and sprinkle the tops with crushed candy canes.

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
