My Favorite Cake Recipes

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I don't really like most cake. Yep, that's right! I said it. Cake is not really my thing.

Here's the thing. Most cakes that are served at birthdays or large gatherings are dry, crumbly and the only part that's good is the frosting. And even the frosting fails me sometimes.

Now you may be wondering, why do you have a page all about cake then? There are a few exceptions to my "I don't like cake" statement. The cakes that I do like are not the typical birthday-type cake.

My Favorite Cake Recipes




One of my favorite type of cakes is the lava cake. The first time we tried it, I was just amazed. How can just a few ingredients create such a decadent and delicious dessert with that gooey chocolaty center? You've got to try it! It's so yummy served with vanilla ice cream.

Another type of cake I'm partial to is the coffee cake. This caramel nut coffee cake is so stinkin' good. It's got a caramel topping that is baked right on top. It's fantastic!

When we were first married, my husband practically had to force me to try carrot cake. Carrots inside of a cake? I didn't think I would like it. But do you know what? It's really good and I'd take a carrot cake over a box mix cake any day.

This pumpkin gooey butter cake is one of my favorite desserts. Probably the reason I like it so much is because it's more of a pumpkin bar, than a cake. YUM!

My absolute favorite cake is the angel food cake. I seriously LOVE that stuff. But it has to be home-made. Recently I bought one for a quick strawberry shortcake, and it was re-confirmed to me that homemade is a MUST! Even my son commented that the store-bought wasn't as good.

I used to be really into making fun birthday cakes. This little monkey birthday cake was probably the last "fun" cake I made. It's made using a home-made Devil's food cake.

When making homemade cake, a lot of times the cake will stick to the pan. It seems that no matter how much I greased the pan, it would still stick.  But not after I learned a little trick to get your cake out of the pan perfectly every time. Go check it out, it's a life-saver!
