Apple-Cider Doughnut Cake
If you love the apple-cider doughnuts often sold at farmers' markets, you'll love this cake! Baked in a Bundt pan, it's essentially a giant cakey doughnut, made a little more wholesome with whole-wheat flour. A blend of olive oil and applesauce helps keep it moist. This classic fall dessert recipe appears in our cookbook, "A New Way to Bake" (Clarkson Potter). Martha also made this recipe on "Martha Bakes" episode 802.
There are certain days during the summer when the last place anyone wants to be is in a hot kitchen. But that's when kids can come to the rescue, making a delicious dessert for the whole family without ever having to ask their parents to turn on the oven. This no-bake cheesecake is sure to please with its creamy center.
Potato, Broccoli, and Cheddar Soup
Broccoli is used two ways in this kid-friendly dish: it's simmered until tender for the soup base and roasted for the garnish.
Chicken Soup with Rice
Easy to prepare and nourishing, this straightforward, family-friendly soup recipe uses boneless chicken thighs and white rice. Ready in just an hour, it doesn't need to simmer all day for a full flavor that gets a little extra panache when topped with sharp, grated cheese.
Creamy Baked Ziti
Cream cheese is the secret to the silky sauce in this vegetarian baked pasta dish, while mozzarella and Parmesan create a golden bubbling crust on top.
