Let Them Eat Cake


We love National Cake Day at The Food Channel. It’s definitely one of our favorite treats. This year, we’ve seen a resurgence in the popularity of classic dishes, often with contemporary twists and the elevation of flavors, like maple, and fruits like cranberries. Treat yourself to some of our favorites cake recipes.

This Classic Coffee and Walnut Cake was a bit of a revelation. Yes, you can put strong coffee in and the recipe reflects that, but the first round of development led to a cake that has a coffee kick in the icing (that gets stronger each day) but the cake itself had more caramel (deep, like Crème Brulee as opposed to super sweet) tones than coffee.

A mouthful of apples in every single bite, this Fresh Apple Dumpling Cake is perfect! Using freshly picked apples during this time of year ensures that no topping is needed, and the sides darken and caramelize to form a sugar crust all around. From The Yankee Chef.

Even if you have never made a cake in your life, this recipe is the perfect place to start, because it produces a perfect Lemon Drizzle Cake every time! With a sharp, puckering taste of lemon and a comforting hug of butter, every bite contains the perfect amount of sweetness. From Rattan Direct.
