This is our go-to cake. It looks humble -- just one layer, no icing, the fruit on top kind of burst open and starting to get jammy -- but once people take a bite, they’re hooked. The key is the buttery, dense cake itself, and the sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon that goes on top of the fruit before baking to form a wonderfully crisp top crust that contrasts beautifully with the soft fruit.
The cake itself is made with a variety of spices that come together to create something warm and a little bit surprising for something that looks so simple.
Tart cranberries are used in this recipe to create a nice balance between sweet and sour, but any fruit that can stand up to baking will work nicely in this recipe, with an adjustment to the spices to ensure maximum deliciousness! When in doubt, go with cinnamon and a little vanilla extract.
Making dessert for a crowd can be difficult. Something like a pie is almost big enough, but you'll have to carefully dissect it into tiny slivers to really make it work. A layer cake looks spectacular, but presents the same slicing problem.
It’s going to be a cold one on the East Coast this weekend — time for a warming breakfast that gives you the power and energy to get through the day. Here’s one amazing option — Shakshuka!

A fairly simple set of ingredients combines with a blend of Vanns spices to create a complex and hearty dish that your guests might not even realize is vegetarian. A perfectly poached egg on top means this dish can be enjoyed from breakfast to dinner.
Both of these recipes are kind of magical -- they take super simple ingredients like water, flour, butter, salt, and Vanns Smoked Spanish Paprika and turn them into beautiful, impressive golden brown focaccia and a deeply orange-red, perfectly flavored smoked paprika butter to be spread on top. It makes a great appetizer for any occasion, but be careful that your guests don’t fill themselves up on it! It’s a little bit addictive.
This is it, folks. This is the perfect, unexpected, amazing vegetable soup, adapted from Michael Solomonov’s beast of a cookbook Zahav. This recipe is the perfect example of his brilliant and unusual use of commonplace spices and other ingredients.
Are you sick of pumpkin-flavored things yet? Yes? No? Either way, this tea cake is for you. Rather than the standard mix of spices that linger in the background and provide a general warmth to a pumpkin-flavored treat, this tea cake goes big and bold with the spices, incorporating a whopping 5 teaspoons of Vanns Ground Cinnamon, 2 tsp.
