16 Jun Jada: Summer sweet fix
One thing I really enjoy is trying new recipes. I love sharing recipes with harvest friends because they have the tastiest, easiest to make recipes that are easy to serve in the field and feed several mouths.
I share a baking addiction with my friend Ali Thurman of Thurman Harvesting who happens to have an another addiction: Pinterest. She often uses it to find new and fun recipes such as this Strawberry Upside Down Cake. Following her lead, I also found another recipe I enjoy from Pinterest and will include in this post. Doesn’t summer goes hand in hand with sweets?! If you are cooking in a camper you’ll enjoy making the No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake. Hope you get your sugar fix!
Strawberry Upside Down Cake
(Like my the fine field china?)
Fresh strawberries chopped (approximately 4 cups)
1 Strawberry Jello mix
1 bag mini marshmallows
1 yellow cake mix with ingredients it requires
Preheat oven to 350 and spread chopped strawberries covering the bottom of a 9X13 greased pan. Sprinkle jello over strawberries then cover with marshmallows. Follow cake mix instructions and pour over marshmallows. Bake as directed by cake mix. Note: The top should be very tan and look like a cake. Don’t take it out of the oven until the top layer quits wobbling. This can be served warm or chilled.
No Bake Nutella Cheesecake
Yield: 4-6 servings (You’ll have to make this bigger for a crew but it’s worth it!)
Prep Time: 15 minutes
For the Crust
12 Oreo Cookies, crushed into crumbs (I use a blender to crush them)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For the Filling
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup Nutella
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
1. In a medium bowl, stir together the Oreo cookie crumbs and melted butter. Press into the bottom of single serving dishes for easy field servings or a pie pan to form a crust layer.
2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and Nutella until smooth. Add vanilla and mix to combine. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until well blended.
3. Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes/ pie pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. (Don’t be afraid to make this a day ahead. It stays good. )
4. If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping, chocolate shavings, and/or toasted, chopped hazelnuts.
