Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Rating: 3.5 stars 29
This is one instance where we like to use canned fruit instead of the fresh stuff because those rings are oh so perfect and just screaming for maraschino cherries. But if you’ve got wicked knife skills, by all means, go ahead and slice and core a fresh pineapple to use. You might want to grab a friend when it comes time to invert: slow cooker inserts can be heavy and you’ll need to hold another plate to catch the cake when you invert it. We think pineapple’s intense sweetness acidity goes very nicely with something creamy and fatty like unsweetened whipped cream.

Peanut Butter Ramen

Rating: 5 stars 1
This quick vegetarian dinner is as simple as tossing a package of ramen noodles with a flavor-packed spicy peanut sauce, which slicks each noodle with layers of flavor. Punchy vinegar, salty soy sauce, and spicy gochujang balance the creamy peanut butter in the rich sauce. It’s a flexible mixture, which would taste great alongside grilled chicken, pork satay, or even roasted mushrooms. To turn the noodles into an even more filling dinner, add cubes of tofu, quickly-boiled shrimp, or poached chicken.

How To Make a Classic Amaretto Sour
Rating: Unrated 322
We’ve all been there: You buy a large quantity of an ingredient for one recipe, and then you’re stuck not knowing what to do with the rest of it. A common culprit? Amaretto liqueur, which is often used in almond-flavored butter cookies. But after you’ve added one tablespoon to the batter, you’re left with a bottle full of almond-flavored liqueur. Well, now’s the time to try your hand at a new cocktail: a deliciously refreshing Amaretto sour. The “sour” element comes from two types of citrus, freshly-squeezed lemon juice and a slice of orange. Garnish with a cherry for a pretty presentation.Watch the video above to find out how to make an Amaretto sour, and read on for the easy recipe instructions and five ingredients.

Coconut Pound Cake

This is a classic pound cake with coconut flavor—simple to make and even easier to love. Top with a simple powdered sugar glaze and more coconut for an impressive presentation, or slice and serve with macerated fruit. If you have leftovers, cut them into cubes and use in a trifle. Traditionally, pound cakes are made with a pound each of butter, sugar, flour, and eggs. So how does the cake rise without a leavener like baking soda or baking powder? Creaming the butter and sugar for 8 full minutes whips air into the batter, which causes the cake to rise in the oven. You’ll know the mixture’s ready when it’s very pale and fluffy.
