This sweet creation makes a great dessert, and it also looks like it's topped with a hearty helping of those famous pasta noodles. Get the full recipe & instructions here.

6. Dutch Baby Pancake With Strawberries
Did you know that the Dutch baby pancake isn't even Dutch? That's right — it's actually American and was invented in Seattle, Washington! It's derived from the German version of pancakes, known as pfannkuchen, which are much thinner than an American-style pancake, but still thicker than a French-style crêpe. In any case, we're just happy someone came up with the recipe! Get the full recipe & instructions here.
7. Flamingo Cake
Chocolate cake is a classic and welcome addition to any afternoon coffee klatch. But the delicious treat always ends up looking the same, more or less: a deep rich, chocolate brown color sometimes garnished with a neutral-colored frosting, powdered sugar, or sometimes even sprinkles. We say it's time for a change, and this recipe for a pink chocolate cake with a fruity surprise in the middle is just what the doctor ordered. Get the full recipe & instructions here.
