Charlotte Prouost of Lake Worth, Fla., asked for help locating a recipe for "Lightning Cake," which she remembers being in the Boston Cooking School Cookbook by Fannie Farmer dating back to the 1930s. Many readers, such as Joan Landsberg of Bend, Ore., still had original copies of this classic cookbook that had belonged to them or their mothers. Landsberg says she saved the cookbook because it was filled with recipes that she grew up with and with handwritten notes by her mother. The original Lightning Cake recipe, as published in the 1935 edition, did not specify a cake pan size, but later versions called for baking it in two 7-inch round pans or one 7-inch-by-10-inch pan. I chose to bake it in a single 8-inch round cake pan and it worked beautifully.

One would expect Michael Phelps' coach Bob Bowman to know how to trim seconds from a race and how to perfect the butterfly stroke. But that's not all the famed swim coach is good for. He's got culinary advice too. Fellow swim coach Fernando Buenrostro asked Bowman today on Twitter: "What am I doing wrong if the chocolate cake I'm baking isn't fluffy? It looks like brownies. " Bowman immediately wrote back. "You may be over beating the batter," the next Food Network star answered.

Help! I forgot to wear my glasses and came home with 5 pounds of self-rising flour instead of all-purpose flour. What can I do with it? And why do grocery stores in the South devote so much shelf space to self-rising flour? The reason you see so much self-rising flour in the South is tradition. Self-rising flour is convenient for making biscuits, saving you a step in adding baking powder. So that's one thing you can do with your self-rising flour - make biscuits with it. You also can use it in recipes that call for baking powder, such as quick breads and some cookies.

I can't imagine how a cupcake could be the least bit healthy. Especially if it actually tastes good. But television talk show host Dr. Oz seems to think so. He likes this recipe for vanilla cupcakes with a raspberry filling and rich chocoloate topping. He borrowed it from Vincent Buzzetta, The Cake Artist INC. The cupcakes are made with coconut palm sugar, a sweetener that doesn't cause the same blood sugar spikes as regular sugar, Dr. Oz says on his website.  Coconut palm is the same amount of calories, but  itprovides a slow energy release - which can curb your appetite and help you lose weight.

Every Southern girl learns how to make baking-powder biscuits. You never question it. You just do it and accept the responsibility as part of your heritage. I was lucky. I learned to make biscuits from the best biscuit baker in Fayetteville, N.C. -- my grandma. She made them without fail every single day for Granddaddy's supper. My family and my cousin Mack's family lived just down the street from our grandparents. Mack and I figured out, at a very young age, that if we showed up at Grandma's just before supper, she would give each of us a hot biscuit right out of the oven.

Richard Clayton from Odenton was looking for a recipe for making Spoon Bread from scratch. Rita Gifford from Timonium sent in a recipe that she said was given to her by a former professor many years. The recipe was written and fired on a decorative ceramic plague and she has had it hanging in her kitchen for 20-plus years. Although called "bread," the classic Southern-style spoon bread is closer in consistency and taste to a savory pudding or soufflé. It is meant to be served with a spoon hot out of the oven, hence the name.

She said the recipe came from a generic box of the cereal. I whipped up a batch of the cookies in no time.
