Cake Recipes

From luscious chocolate cakes to light angel food cakes and multi-tiered birthday cakes, it’s a wide, delicious world of cake out there. Even if it’s just a slab of simple, buttery pound cake enjoyed with a cup of coffee, there is something celebratory about eating a slice of cake. The flip side is that cakes tend to require more effort to bake than a tray of brownies or cookies, but that’s no reason to worry. Our Food & Wine guide to cake includes tips from professional bakers (like starting with room temperature ingredients) to help you make an amazing dessert. We’ve also shared our best layer cakes, so you’ll never wonder how to celebrate another birthday—plus bundt cakes, upside-down cakes, icebox cakes and more.

30 Days of Holiday Cakes and Pies
Family is great and all, but we all know the holiday season is actually about eating. From big, juicy roasts to as many sides as we can fit on our plates, holiday meals are as deliciously plentiful as they come. Of course, the main event is dessert. We like the dessert table to be so filled with sweets that you can barely see the tablecloth. Of course, you have your traditional apple, pecan and pumpkin pies, but the fun kicks in when you get creative. That's why we're here with 30 days worth of holiday cakes and pies for you to bake throughout this festive season. We want you to get in the holiday spirit and make sure the addictive aroma of pie crust never leaves your kitchen. From triple-layer sour cream chocolate cake to buttermilk eggnog pie, we have all the recipes you need to make sure your guests will be coming back for seconds. Happy Holidays! –Morgan Goldberg
