Cindy's Berry Cake and Keylime Cheesecake

This berry cake is so simple!  I made this for an Easter gathering last weekend.  Use the Medium Round Molds or any of the molds for a different look.  Make mini cakes using the Round Tray.  Bake your favorite cake or use the one in our catalog.

The filling/frosting is the kicker though!  

Whip in an electric mixer:
4 cups heavy whipping cream (1 quart)
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup of cream cheese (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla

Then decorate with your favorite berries and mint leaves.


I'm both delighted and a little sheepish at telling you that this is a mix from Costco.  It's a Keylime Cheesecake mix with a crushed chocolate cookie crumb shell.  The reason I'm sharing this with you is because this made the simplest, yet elegant dessert.  It called for a lined baking pan, but it was much easier to turn this "bar cookie" into a delicate, bit-sized treat using the Mini-Muffin Tray.  Use this tray with ANY of your no-bake, frozen, refrigerated desserts!

2 Meals in 1 - Southwestern Stir-Fry and Nachos


Okay, so this photo does not look as appetizing and delicious as it is!  We just had this for lunch and it was gone before I knew it!

2 lbs lean ground beef
2 packets of taco seasoning
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 large onions
1/4 cup water
steamed white rice
bag of Blue Corn/ Tortilla Chips
2 cups shredded cheese
Optional: sour cream, olives, salsa, lettuce, etc.

Brown ground beef in skillet and add 1 packet of seasoning and 1/2 of the other packet.  Lift out half of the ground beef, leaving most of the oil in the skillet.  Cut pepper and onions into strips.  Add to hot skillet with beef and stir-fry.  Add water and continue to stir fry.  Once the the veggies start to wilt, add the rest of the seasoning and stir-fry for a couple more minutes.  Combine the veggies and the rest of the beef together.

Meal #1 - Serve over steamed rice.

Meal #2 - Use Silpat or Flexipat to make the best nachos ever!!  Spread tortilla chips on Silpat then top with the beef/veggie mixture and sprinkle (or douse) with cheese.  Bake at 425 F for approx. 10 min. (until cheese is melted).  Garnish with your favorites!

We eat Meal #1 for dinner and save the rest for Meal #2 for lunch!

Baked Potato Fries


Our good friend, Paule, showed us this delicious recipe that she makes regularly for her family.  It was so simple and scrumptious!  

One tray is full of red potatoes and the other tray is a blend of sweet potato and the red.  We roasted them on the Deep Flexipat and the Grande Flexipat.

Cut up the potatoes using the Santoku Knife and then flavor with your favorite seasonings!  One tray has a little butter or melted butter (I like to use olive oil) and the other has absolutely nothing for oil!  Then we used a smattering of our delicious sea salts and herbs: check these out by clicking HERE.

This recipe will also work on the Silpat!

Gluten-Free Bread


Did you know that our trays make the best bread in the world?!  I have recently "gone gluten-free" and so I've been experimenting with different bread mixes.  Let me tell you, that using our Demarle At Home Loaf Trays makes this simple and certainly more delicious!  Give it a try!

for this one, I used "Gluten Free Pantry - Sandwich Bread Mix"

Rice Cake - Nian Gao - a Chinese treat!


  • 1 lb. glutinous rice flour (1/2lb. of the "red" bag and 1/2lb. of the "green" bag)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2.5 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • raisins and/or dates
Directions
  1. Beat eggs with sugar and slowly add glutinous rice flour and milk.
  2. Stir the mixture until the ingredients are fully blended with each other before adding baking soda.
  3. Add oil gradually while stirring continuously.
  4. Stop when oil no longer appears as a separate layer from the rest of ingredients.
  5. Add vanilla extract last.
  6. Stir and make sure there is no air bubble.
  7. Place Flexipan of choice on Perforated Baking Sheet
  8. Pour batter into Flexipan of choice
  9. Sprinkle with raisins and/or dates
  10. Bake at 325°F for approx. 45 minutes. (Cake should be lightly browned and solid when you move it.)
*Note:  in the Asian section of your grocery store, you should be able to find bags of rice flour.  Typically, you will find a red bag and a green bag.  Use 1/2 lb. of each to create the best consistency for this cake.  If you can't find it, other rice flour will work, it just may be a different consistency.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake
