Make the most of citrus season. "Cranberries and orange peel are finely chopped and beat into the batter, so you get those flavors throughout the cake," says Allstar Kim's Cooking Now. In addition to baking it in a faceted Bundt pan, sugarcoated cranberries add to the cake's charm.

"Sweet potatoes during the holidays are a must in our household," Allstar Yoly says. "This time I decided to do something different other than a casserole or a pie. I used white sweet potatoes, but any sweet potatoes will do. You can eat this cake plain, topped with whipped cream, or topped with a glaze. Either way, this pound cake is delicious!"
