Raspberry Jam Crumb Cake

I made a Raspberry Jam Crumb Cake today. 

The topping did not come out very crumbly, and mostly blended into the cake, but it still tasted the same.

I swirled the raspberry jam into the cake batter in the pan, and used my fingers to sprinkle the topping batter over it. Because I mostly concentrated the crumbs in the middle, they clumped together and the edge was mostly cake.

This recipe was easy and fun to make. You can substitute any jam for the raspberry one, depending on what you like. 

Here is the recipe.

Blueberry Peach Pie

I recently made a blueberry peach pie. Usually, this recipe is made in a ramekin (a small dish, similar to a soufflé dish), but using a large pie plate worked just as well.

The recipe called for a pre-made crust, fresh blueberries and frozen peaches, as well as vanilla, nutmeg, sugar and flour to be mixed in with the filling.
This pie was really easy to make and tasted really fruity and juicy.

Seven Layers Chocolate Bar

I got the recipe for this seven layers chocolate bar from a Hershey's Chocolate Cookbook 
that I got as a birthday present.

The main ingredients include pretzels, sweetened condensed milk, unsweetened baking chocolate, mini marshmallows, coconut and pecans, with a dark chocolate drizzle on top.

The unsweetened baking chocolate I bought was already pre-melted, when the instructions called for unmelted, but this didn't really pose any problems. 
This recipe came out really great!
