Cocunut Cream Dessert

2-1/2 cups crushed butter-flavored crackers
(I use "Club" crackers)
1/2 cup + 1 T, margarine, melted
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
2 pkgs (3.4 oz.) instant coconut cream pudding
1/2 cup cold milk
1 carton (8 oz.) Cool Whip
1/3 cup flaked coconut, toasted in oven

In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs & butter, mix.
Press into un-greased 13 x 9 x 2" pan or dish

In a bowl, mix ice cream, milk & pudding mixes with blender. Spread over the crust; top with whipped topping and coconut. Cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Note: The original recipe said to "thaw 15 minutes before serving" That is NOT enough time. I take mine out of the freezer and place in the refg. 2 hours prior to eating. Check it at 1-1/2 hours and if it's not thawed, place on the counter for a while.

Coffee Cup Cake


1 Large coffee mug or soup cup

4 Tbsp. cake flour NOTE: 3T=2 tsp bread flour & 1 tsp corn starch to equate to cake flour.

4 Tbsp. sugar

2 Tbsp. cocoa

1 egg

3 Tbsp. milk

3 Tbsp. oil

Small dash of vanilla

3 Tbsp. choc. chips (optional)

3 Tbsp. chopped nuts (optional)


Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well with a fork

Add beaten egg, milk, oil and vanilla, mix well

Add chips or nuts

Put mug in microwave and cook for  2 1/2 to 3 min.

Cake will rise over top of mug--do not be alarmed

Allow to cool. 

Frosting may be added or cool whip or ice cream.


Other ideas would be to add fresh fruit like peaches, strawberries, etc and eliminate the cocoa.  You could use cinnamon, cherries or pineapple also – the possibilities are endless!

Dutch Oven Cobbler

3 cans of fruit pie filling (take your pick which fruit)
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
2/3 cup milk or water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon cinamon
1 Dutch Oven

Line Dutch Oven with aluminum foil; dig fire pit and get 20 charcoal briquettes (Girl Scout method), or build a rip roaring over-sized fire and get the coals nice and hot (Boy Scout method). Pour the fruit filling into the dutch oven.  Mix all the other ingredients into a smooth batter and pour over fruit filling.  Place lid on Dutch oven.  Place oven onto half of the briquettes and put the other half of the briquettes on the top of the Oven lid.  Cook in pit until inserted toothpick comes out clean.  This time depends largely on who built the fire.  Remove from fire and let cool a bit (again cooling time is determined by who built the fire).  Serve by itself, with whip cream, or ice cream.  Makes 10 - 15 servings.
