slow cooker turtle upside-down cake

Happy Thursday, ladies and gentlefolk! I hope your weeks have been treating you well and that you’re looking ahead to fun-filled weekends. As for me, I’m heading to Iowa City this weekend to catch up with old friends, so this week has been pretty hectic in getting everything prepped for some time away.

BUT because I like you guys and I just can’t leave you hanging without something yummy to share, I’ve wrastled up a roundup of some tasty fall sweets and breakfast treats I’ve been creating for some neat sites I write for, like Tablespoon, Betty Crocker, Bisquick and KitchenAid. Get ready for some serious yums in your face.

First up! Slow Cooker Turtle Upside-Down Cake (pictured above). Um, to say that I ate approximately half of this cake with my by myself in two days is an understatement. It’s rich and it’s delicious and it’s easy and you gots to make it.

Here’s a post all about recipes using apples and pears, like these salted caramel apple pear scones. You heard me — Salted Caramel. Apple Pear. Scones.

And here’s another post featuring three easy-peasy breakfast rolls. Hint: One involves pumpkin and the phrase “sticky bun,” another involves coffee and cherries and the third is a riff on biscuits and gravy. I’ll leave you to drool for a moment.
