Top Ten Cakes

I love cake. Big ones, little ones (aka cupcakes) Cheesecakes.

Here are my favorite cakes plus where you can find the recipe or buy one if you are interested. Also you will see that I tend to modify recipes. I love coffee cake, I love it more with fruit.

1) Strawberry shortcake (It better be June or July and I need to get it at a fair or community event.)

2) Yellow Cake with chocolate frosting (This is Dennis’ favorite cake) http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/yellow-cake/f6965118-14cf-4ff5-ad88-9b7374d72356#/?term=Yellow+cake&pi=1&ps=10

3) Lemon cupcakes with white icing and a dollop of Lemon curd on top. (This is my friend and neighbor Cassy’s cake)
Use the same recipe as the yellow cake, but instead of vanilla extract add the juice and zest of one lemon and I use a cupcake pan. 18 minutes in the oven.

4) Trophy Cupcakes: Chocolate with Peanut Butter Icing.
My friend Rebecca brought me one the other day and it was delicious. http://www.trophycupcakes.com/

5) Cheesecake Factory’s Adam’s Peanut Butter Fudge
Creamy Cheesecake Swirled with Caramel, Peanut Butter, Butterfingers® and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups®.

6) Dahlia Bakery: Pear Tart. That is close enough for a cake to make my list. If they don’t have that than try their apricot cherry buckle cake http://tomdouglas.com/index.php?page=dahlia-bakery

7) German Chocolate Cake from Borracchini’s http://www.nowcake.com/

8) Brownies. Personally I love Pillsbury Traditional Fudge Brownie Mix and adding Reeses Peanut Butter Chips.
Dennis loves it when I add walnuts. We slightly underbake them for 26 minutes to make them fudgey.

9) Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

10) Same coffee cake as nine with a seasonal fruit in the swirl. Summer is the time for nectarines, raspberries. In the fall and winter add apples, pears, etc.

    Oh my goodness… Oh dear… Oh yummy yum yum. I’m rendered almost speechless over here, salivating over my keyboard, licking my lips. Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake is my personal favorite. I’m heading out right now (there’s a bakery around the corner from my place) and getting one!
