Chef John's Classic Strawberry Shortcake
For this strawberry shortcake recipe, I modified the way my grandfather made his and used self-rising flour and toasted butter for a nutty flavor. I'm hoping Armand Cianfoni would approve.
Pumpkin Magic Cake with Maple Cinnamon Whipped Cream
This magical confection is part pudding, part cake, entirely delicious.
This cake has a reputation! A sweet and tempting caramel is drizzled into a greased Bundt® pan, followed by a gorgeous smooth mixture for a moist and rich chocolate cake and a layer of flan. Serve topped with more melted cajeta if you wish.
White Chocolate Amaretto Cake
This white chocolate and almond delight will have your guests reeling. Although it looks intimidating, it is an easy and delicious holiday treat.
Grandmother's Buttermilk Poppy Seed Coffee Cake
This is my grandmother's recipe. My dad remembers she made it for him growing up, he loves it. It's absolutely wonderful!
Easy Yogurt Cake
This is an easy yogurt cake that uses the yogurt container to measure all of the ingredients. It's ready in under an hour and the perfect not-too-sweet snack or breakfast treat. It's known in France as "Gâteau au Yaourt" and is typically the first cake that French children learn how to make. My son attends a French school and has made this with his classmates.
Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake
This moist, light almond coffee cake is "berry" delicious as a dessert or for breakfast. Your house will smell just wonderful while it is baking and cooling. The recipe doubles well.
Blood Orange Yogurt Olive Oil Cake
Wonderful use for blood oranges in the winter. Plus, the cake is moist and requires no butter and very little processed sugar. It's delicious with or without the glaze.
Vegan Sweet Potato Cake
This sweet potato cake smells like autumn thanks to cinnamon and cloves, and just happens to be vegan. There aren't any hard-to-find ingredients here, just sweet potato, sugar, flour, oil, and spices. The secret to the depth of flavor might be the coffee, but the end result does not taste like a coffee-flavored cake.
