Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

Good Morning!

First of all let me share with you a few events in our day out here in the woods which is on the whole very uneventful. First of all the beautiful sunrise we woke up to yesterday. I was checking my e/mail, etc. when I looked out the window to gaze upon a sky that looked like it was on fire. Now I know what they say, red in the morning, sailors take warning however, our weather ignored the omen and it was a warm but nice day overall.

WTF?

What kind of rat does this?

Next thing, Kenny went out to his workshop/barn/man-cave and came back to the house telling me he had something to show me. He had put out a tray of rat poisoning as they were getting in there and chewing the wires on the phone line, his fan and other things. On top of the box of poison, the rats or something had drug a fairly good size piece of molding over the top of the box along with pieces of glass and torn up paper covering the entire thing as if to warn fellow critters not to touch the stuff. We have some very smart vermin running around here!

And last but not least, as I was coming back from getting the mail something caught my eye that wasn’t there when I moseyed on down to the mailbox, an oak SNAKE! I was never one to hurt a snake but I knew this fellow would eventually get much larger and eventually find it slithery self messing with my chicken coop and stealing our chicken eggs, oh HELL no!!! Husband was unavailable at the time so I came up to the house, grabbed a shovel and took matters into my own hands. Boy that little son-of-a-gun gave me a hard time as I was trying to kill him on a not so solid of a surface but I won out in the long run and he will never bother our eggs, no no no!

All you need is a cup of coffee to start you're day!

Now on with the real reason I’m here, but it is fun to share some of our little happenings! I made these yesterday and we had them with our coffee this morning, husband is hooked for sure not that I’m going to make them very often as he is constantly harping about his weight gain since he quit smoking, ha ha! But here it goes:

Orange Creamsicle Gooey Cake

Ooooey...Goooey...Goodness!

Ooooey…Goooey…Goodness!

Hello every body, this is Regina’s daughter Mish. I had a potluck bible study to go to last Friday and since I work all the time I decided to make something quick and super easy.. I have been making Gooey cakes for 20 plus years now and I have tried them all sorts of ways, but my favorite is the Orange Creamsicle flavor. When I took them to church that night, there were none left at the end of our meal (Thank God I dropped a few off to my parents before I went!)… The pastors wife took a few home to her husband, she said he would love them. So here  is how you make them.

Orange Creamsicle Gooey Cake
 
quick and easy
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12 bars
Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 box of orange flavor cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter melted
  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese softened
  • 1 16oz package of confectioners sugar
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • Zest of one orange rind
  • 9x13 backing pan greased not floured
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine 1 egg, cake mix (dry), 1 stick of butter (melted), until it is wet like a dough. Press into greased pan covering entire bottom of pan.
  3. In a mixing bowl beat 2 eggs, softened cream cheese and vanilla until well blended; slowly add confectioners sugar blend until all sugar is well incorporated.
  4. Add orange zest and fold in; pour over the top of cake mixture and bake 40 to 50 minutes the top should be golden brown.
  5. Cool on wire rack before cutting into squares.

 

Please enjoy these tasty little morsels of ooey gooey goodness. I know I have, just be careful as they are addictive. Mom said they would be real tasty with a scoop of home made vanilla ice cream.  You can make them with any flavor cake mix just do everything else the same. Try them at you next event and I assure you they will be a hit. Also you don’t have to add the whole box of sugar if you don’t want them so sweet. You can also substitute Neufchatel cheese instead of the cream cheese same effect less fat, but still just as delicious. And what a sweet treat to fix for your special someone for Valentine’s Day this weekend………..
