How to make your own Pizza Sauce, easy pantry recipe.

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I like to do it myself, but I like being able to do it myself, even more.

We had homemade pizza for our dinner on Sunday. When I went to the pantry cupboard there was no tomato sauce. Around here tomato sauce is usually purchased as part of a recipe that is planned for, except for that lone can in wait for "those times" and apparently I had already used it! Not wanting to go back to the store a third time (yes twice, short story, I forgot the pizza cheese on the supplies list, for Pete's sake!), I improvised.

And as luck would have it, this turned out delicious and is now our preferred pizza sauce. It is worth the little bit of extra time, and the bonus? I always have cans of diced tomatoes, I could not get along without them. This sauce is flavorful with just the right touch of tomato goodness. This is also perfect to have on the stove while you are working on other kitchen chores, multi-tasking, it is a beautiful thing!

 This is at the 15-minute mark. Just beginning to thicken.






This is done at 30 minutes. Thick enough to stay where the spoon pushes it!
This smells so good!





Now you're ready to make pizza. Choose your dough, along with your favorite flavors and bake!

Pizza is fun, easy to personalize and best of all delicious!

Enjoy!

Whole Grain Applesauce and Spice Chocolate Chip Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We have been enjoying this cake for years. Yes, it can be a challenge to remove from the pan, but I have worked that out and have shared that same tip (and photos) on cake making and removing from the original post. 

This is one of the first recipes of our family favorites that I am remaking and sharing in whole grain form. And if anything this cake is better when made with whole grains, it is moist, delicious and you will be proud to serve it to family and friends. 

Whole Grain Applesauce and Spice Chocolate Chip Cake.

Whole Grain Applesauce and Spice Chocolate Chip Cake
adapted from: this recipe!
350-degree oven

1 stick butter, melted and set aside to cool
1/2 c oil
2 c applesauce
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1 1/2 c sugar

2 3/4 c whole wheat flour - we prefer pastry grind spelt
1 T dry cocoa
2 t soda
2 t cinnamon
1 t cardamom
1 t salt
1/4-1/2 t ground cloves, if you love cloves use the larger measure
1/4-1/2 t fresh ground pepper, (don't leave this out), if you love heat, use the full measure

2 c chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, oil, eggs, applesauce, vanilla, and sugar. Beat well with a wooden spoon.

In a medium sized bowl combine the whole wheat flour, cocoa, soda, spices, and salt. Whisk to mix well. Stir into the applesauce mixture, until smooth, with no dry pockets or wet pockets, remain.

Prepare the bundt pan for baking, by buttering and flouring the inside surface. Using a ladle, add 2 ladles of the cake batter to the bottom of the bundt pan. Pick up the pan, tilt to evenly coat the bottom of the pan with cake batter. See photo below, left to right.

Applesauce and Spice Cake, easy removal in one piece, with this technique.

Stir the chocolate chips into the remaining batter in the mixing bowl.

Spoon the batter evenly into the bundt pan (Important: Do not pour, this might disturb the plain batter and allow chocolate chips to sink to the bottom of the pan.). Trust me on this tip...

Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes or until done in your oven. This is one cake you will want to see some pulling away from the side of the pan, as evidence that it is completely baked. Remove from oven, let cool in the pan 15 minutes, carefully loosen edges from pan, turn out onto a wire rack or clean toweling to cool.

Let cool completely before Sprinkling a bit of powdered sugar over the top or whipped cream on the side and serve.
