Cover with plastic. Set in freezer for at least 4 hours. When ready to serve, dip loaf pan in a bowl of hot water for a few seconds. Sprinkle top with sliced almonds so it won’t slip when inverted.

Truffles are a chocolate lover’s dream. Few people realize how easy they are to make.
1 pound bittersweet chocolate
1 cup heavy cream
Cocoa powder, finely chopped nuts and powdered sugar for rolling
Chop chocolate finely using a serrated knife and place in a large heat-proof bowl. In a medium saucepan, bring cream to a boil over medium-high heat; pour directly over chopped chocolate. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir chocolate and cream until combined. Allow to sit at room temperature until just thickened, about 15 minutes. Pour ganache mixture into a shallow glass dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until mixture is very cold and set, but still pliable, about 30 minutes. Using a small spoon, scoop ganache into 1-inch nuggets. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Chill for 10 minutes. Using fingertips to mold truffles into round shapes. Roll in cocoa powder or chopped nuts or powdered sugar to coat; chill in an airtight container until ready to serve.
No stirring necessary; the cake mix absorbs the fruit juices
and transforms into a cobbler-like consistency.
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple
1 16 oz. can cherry pie filling
1 package yellow white cake mix
1 stick of butter, cut into thin slices (or just melt it if you’re really pressed for time)
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Dump crushed pineapple and juices into a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
Dump cake mix.
Dump butter slices (or drizzle the melted butter over top of the cake mix).
Bake for 30-50 minutes, until the top of the cake is golden-brown.
Serve as is, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.Other variations include:
Omit the pineapple juice, use 2 cans of cherry pie filling, and use chocolate cake mix instead of yellow. Mmmmmm....that sounds delicious!
Or, sprinkle some sweetened, shredded coconut before you add the butter. You can also sprinkle chopped pecans before you add the butter.
Or, use apple pie filling and a mix for spice cake.
The options are endless!
