5. Zebra Raspberry Cake
Raspberries aren't the easiest berry to eat a handful of, especially if the seeds are on the large side because then you may find yourself needing a spittoon by your chair. On the other hand, they give an absolutely brilliant flavor to chocolate, and when combined with something creamy – the tangy contrast is simply to die for. Think creamsicle, but with raspberry. Then multiply the effect over and over: cream, raspberry, cream, raspberry. Intrigued? You should be! Get the full recipe & instructions here.
6. Cinnamon Apple Rolls
While the colder months contain their own special brand of magic, there are some things that no one really enjoys, like the wind freezing your ears or regretting your sock choice after stepping into a cold puddle. Because your mood can often drop as quickly as the temperature outside, there's no better way to cheer up than by enjoying a sweet warm treat, right out of the oven. Nothing goes better with fall than apples and cinnamon! Get the full recipe & instructions here.

9. 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. So what does the Dutch baby pancake have to do with the Dutch people or the Netherlands, you might wonder? Well, probably nothing, actually. The German word for "German" is "Deutsch," and so it's believed that the "Deutsch" part was maybe misheard or got mixed up with "Dutch," and so the name stuck. In any case, we're just happy someone invented it! Get the full recipe & instructions here.
