If you have been adhering to The Café for any quantity of time, you in all probability comprehend that we’re all about Quick, Tasty recipes that do not just take considerably time to set jointly, like this Ridiculously Quick Peanut Butter Texas Sheet Cake.

It wasn’t generally that way while. When I started out this weblog (again in 2011) I shared a lot of distinct styles of recipes… from principal dishes to salads to desserts, jams, jellies and heaps of factors in between. I have to confess that when I glance back again, lots of of all those recipes have been, what I would now simply call, “a labor of like”.

“Labor of appreciate”, is a good way of stating that they could take a Long time, call for loads of machines and outcome in a Huge mess in the kitchen. But, a number of many years into the website, I acquired a wonderful lesson.

It was actually a lesson that would be life-switching (effectively, at minimum in a culinary/weblog perception). And, the humorous issue is, it was very much by incident. This is how it came about…

Scott and I have been setting up a vacation to France and I had done some study on French recipes. I located a wonderful, super easy cake recipe that had a pleasant historical past. It was (reportedly) an age-previous favored of grandmothers all about France simply because of its simplicity and the truth that it expected just one particular bowl and no mixer. When I attempted the famed French cake recipe, we all fell in like with it. The cake was moist, tender-crumbed and super delish.

I shared the recipe while we were being on the trip to France… and the relaxation is heritage. For a fun, whimsical identify, I known as it my “French Grandmother’s Lemon Yogurt Cake”. The recipe promptly went ridiculous with our readers, brought a lot of new followers and swiftly became a person of the most well-liked recipes on the website.

The speedy and lengthy-time period acceptance of this easy cake recipe bought me contemplating. I recognized that most people have tremendous hectic life and never have the time to make elaborate, multi-phase desserts that get hours to complete and need exclusive gear. You know, the recipes that start with “In the bowl of an electrical stand mixer, merge…”. And then “conquer for 5 minutes right up until tender and fluffy”, adopted by a thing like, “insert the damp and dry substances independently, mixing well immediately after each individual addition”.

Wow, if you could make a truly delightful cake, with just just one bowl and a whisk or a wooden spoon, why in the planet go by way of all that extra hard work? So it became a mission… to learn and create super easy, insane tasty desserts with nominal work.

As time went on, this goal spread outside of desserts but which is one more story, a Ridiculously Quick tale, for a different day…
