Serves: 4

1 cup dry chocolate cake mix (about 1/3 of the box)

1 egg

1/2 cup strong black coffee

French Vanilla ice cream in a round carton (I LOVE Edy’s Grand ice cream)

Whipped cream, chocolate syrup or sprinkles

Preheat GT Xpress.  Mix cake mix, egg and coffee with wire whisk.  Lightly spray wells of GT Xpress with no-stick cooking spray.  Divide batter into wells, close and cook 7 minuttes.  Remove and cool.  Slice cakes in half to form 2 layers.  Cut 1 inch slice of ice cream.

Hint:  Use a bread knife and cut thru carton and ice cream together (don’t worry, the carton lid will still fit).  Divide ice cream into 2 halves and place between cake layers forming sandwich.  Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze at least 1 hour.  To serve, cut into 4 wedges, garnish with chocolate syrup, whipped cream and sprinkles.

Individual Cheesecakes

Posted on January 30, 2008. Filed under: Desserts | Tags: , , , , |

Crust:

8 full sheets of graham crackers, crushed, or 1 cup of crumbs

4 tbsp of sugar

4 tbsp of melted butter

1 tsp of cinnamon

Filling:

1 8oz package of cream cheese

1/3 cup of sugar

1 egg

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp of vanilla extract

Nonstick cooking spray

Combine crust ingredients and set aside. With an electric mixer or good old-fashioned man/woman power, combine the filling ingredients, beating well for 3 minutes or until thickened and fluffy. Spoon 1/4 cup of the reserved crumb mixture into each well. Press down so that the crumbs stick to the sides of the wells. Top with 1/2 cup filling mixture; sprinkle 2 teaspoons of crumbs over each cake.

Cook 8 minutes. Open the GT Xpress and allow the cakes to stand 5 minutes before removing. Spray the wells again and repeat the process. Refrigerate the cakes for several hours before serving. Top with fruit if desired (I suggest strawberries or peaches). Serves 4.

    Maybe you’ll actually use your GT Xpress instead of letting it collect dust for 2 years like I did.
