Yes, I realize that it’s January and by now many people have grown tired of pumpkin, ginger, and cinnamon in all their desserts, but this is a must-have recipe throughout your winter.
Plus, with all the terribly cold weather we’ve been getting in the midwest and east coast, lightly spiced desserts like this one really do seem to warm you up.
And this has been one of the best coffee cakes I’ve made in a while (though I’m not quite sure this one has topped the Apple Crumble Cake I made this past fall). (more…)
If you’re looking for a tasty twist on the classic vanilla cake, this oreo cake recipe is definitely the way to go.
I made this cake on Halloween, hence the orange, white and black sprinkles. You can just top your cake with oreo crumbles, or simply cover it with icing to keep the inside a surprise.
This is a simple, light, and delicious apple cake. It’s pretty basic, to make and to taste, but the fruity flavors of lemon, apricot, and apple combine perfectly to liven the cake up.
This cake is definitely a crowd-pleaser, so bring this to your next event and watch it disappear! (more…)
Yet another apple recipe, but in all honesty, this is probably the best one yet. This cake has just the right amount of fluffiness, a perfect balance of sweet and salty crumbles, it topped with a light cinnamony glaze, and has a delicious apple crunch!
This cake is great for any occasion too: breakfast, brunch, lunch, dessert. Bring it to a picnic or bake it for a formal dinner: everyone will be sure to wipe their plates clean! (more…)
Though this cake probably hasn’t been in my family for that long, I copied it from my grandma’s voluminous binder of precious recipes. It has been a family favorite since before I was born, and has become a cake that is requested more than any other for birthdays. Store-bought carrot cakes can never top the quality of this one, and I have yet to try a carrot cake of near equivalence.
In other words, next time you bake a cake and happen to have three cups of carrots laying around, you should definitely try this recipe. (more…)
