Oreo Chocolate Swiss Roll

Oreo Chocolate Swiss Roll

Come to the Dark Side: We have Oreo Chocolate Swiss rolls! This decadent dessert features a fluffy chocolate cake, airy whipped cream filling with Oreo crumbs, and silky chocolate ganache topping that would make even Han Solo swoon.

In my line of work, we see celebrities about as often as you’d see signs of illicit inebriation in a college frat house.

I’ve chatted with Jeff Goldblum about running marathons in a unicorn onesie; run into Jon Favreau ordering a grande whatsit at Starbucks downstairs; watched Emilia Clarke recite quippy marketing one-liners that I’d written for her latest film promotion; … Read more

Ganache-filled Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

These glorious Ganache-filled Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a Wallflour favorite! Rich dark chocolate ganache centers are wrapped within a perfectly chewy, crispy-edged chocolate chunk cookie that’s sure to make you swoon. Recipe lightly adapted from Love and Olive Oil.

I’m sorry, Ms. Jackson…These cookies are for real.

It’s very rare in our household that a new dessert becomes an instant Wallflour Boy hit. Unlike me, he prefers 2000s hip hop hits to 90s bubblegum pop and savory foods over sweet treats. There are, however, a few notable exceptions: French apple pie, cheesecake, and anything … Read more

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

These chocolate truffle cookies are a chocoholic’s dream come true! Deep, fudgy flavors meet incredible texture in this surprisingly light, easy-to-make dessert. You’ll find yourself easily inhaling one, two, or maybe even five! Lightly adapted from Allrecipes.

So I happened to be reading the Wikipedia entry for the seven deadly sins the other day and realized at one point that I was making a mental checklist as I went…I’ve been known, for instance, to procrastinate going to bed because I’m too lazy to even get off the couch (sloth), and please never ask me about my utterly gorgeous … Read more

Vegan Caramelitas

When it comes to vegan desserts, these Vegan Caramelitas are among the best I’ve ever had! A golden brown sugar crumb filled with layers of chocolate and dairy-free caramel makes these quick bar cookies an irresistible addition to any dessert spread.   

The first time my college roommate caught me eating her homemade caramelitas, she suggested (rather mildly) that I could just take one and eat it if I wanted. You see, she had put them in the freezer for safekeeping and invited me to help myself anytime–but in my half-hearted attempt at self-control, I politely declined her invitation every time. … Read more

Neapolitan Cheesecake

Meet the most beautiful dessert you’ll make this year! This Neapolitan Cheesecake might look super fancy, but it takes minimal extra effort and tastes like a creamy dream! Features an Oreo crust and three decadent layers of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla cheesecake.

There comes a moment in every person’s life when something unexpected blows their world into a billion, teeny-tiny smithereens and hurls their life into a supermassive existential black hole. For some people, this happens when they realize that Santa isn’t real. Or that Hollywood starlets like Zendaya and Brie Larson are actually younger than you are.

For me, … Read more

DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies

Enjoy the comfort of a classic DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie at home! This official, iconic recipe offers the perfect chewy texture and taste that I savor every time I check into a DoubleTree hotel.

Growing up, it was very easy to decide where we wanted to stay when we traveled. My brother and I were real high rollers: we liked Travelodge for the Sleepy Bears’ Den kids’ room, (which came with a free stuffed bear you could take home). We appreciated a good stay at the Circus Circus in Las Vegas, since our rooms were just a hop away from … Read more

No flour on the grocery store shelves, no hapless friends or coworkers on whom I can foist, unlimited time to bake at home. What’s a girl to do during COVID-19 quarantine?

I’ll tell you what she’s to do. She’s going to make this unbelievably rich, fudgy 30-Minute Flourless Chocolate Cake for One, shove … Read more

7 Gluten-free Recipes to Get You Through Social Distancing

How’s the social distancing been treating you guys so far? As recently as last month, I had never even heard the term “social distancing,” but this abrupt new guideline has translated into a LOT of spare time in my apartment, which suddenly feels as tiny and constricting as a Victorian corset. So naturally, I’ve begun doing what I always do when I’m stuck at home, stressed, or grappling with the existential reality of a worldwide crisis: Baking. Lots of it.

Of course, chances are many of your grocery store aisles have been swept clean by panic-goaded herds of … Read more

4-Ingredient Chocolate Japanese Cheesecake

Hey guys, check out this insanely fluffy awesome 4-ingredient Chocolate Japanese Cheesecake I just made!

Ohhhhhh yeah, I could watch this on repeat all day. Anybody else?

In my last post, I shared how to make this vegetarian-friendly Japanese Tofu Katsu Curry since (surprisingly) I found real veggie options tough to come by during our two-week trip. But let’s be honest: it didn’t really matter because I spent most of my time stuffing my face with adorable sweets and fluffy Japanese cheesecakes like this one instead!

The first cheesecake that I tried in Japan actually came from a rest stop … Read more

6 Spooky Halloween Cupcake Ideas

There’s nothing more fun than brewing up a spell in October. Bake some ghoulish delights this witching season with these 6 spooky Halloween cupcake ideas!

I don’t bake pretty things. When I first started Wallflour Girl in 2011, I was the queen of droopy frosting, uneven cakes, and splat-on-your-plate meals that looked like they’d be severely shaken inside a Mcdonald’s Happy Meal box by an overexcited toddler. Eight years later, not much has changed–although I’ve gotten slightly better in the presentation department, most days I’d rather channel my energy into discovering the best new recipes out there than spend an … Read more
