You know what we need more of around here?! CAKE!
For a blog with the word cake in the title, I admittedly don’t talk about it all that much. The truth is, I’d much rather eat a cake that was prepared for me than experiment with my own recipe. (What can I say; I’m lazy sometimes!)
Here are a few cake recipes that I’ve been dreaming of lately!
From Yours Truly…
I got this recipe from my mom, and it’s perfect for the summertime… very light and fresh! It’s very easy to make, too, so it’s something you could whip up quickly.
This is my grandma’s recipe for pound cake, and trust me, it’s delicious! It definitely isn’t “healthy,” but to be honest the last thing that’s important to me when it comes to cake is how healthy it is!
From Other Fabulous Blogs…
Clearly, I’m a huge fan of poke cake recipes. They are always easy to make, but give the illusion of being involved/time-consuming/fancy/etc. I’ve never been a big fan of Milky Way bars (gimme a Snickers!), but this cake looks like it might make a believer out of me!
I’ve seen these all over my Pinterest feed lately, so I know I’m not the only one eyeing these up. I’d like to try and make these once before summer is over; they’d probably be good with other types of fruit, too!
My mom has always been a big fan of carrot cake, and I’ve recently come around myself! Carrot cake is a nice “change,” because it doesn’t have to be super-sweet if that’s not your thing. The addition of zucchini and the lemon cream cheese frosting make these cake bars look extra delicious.
What’s better than a cake that can be made in a crockpot? How about a chocolate peanut butter cake that’s made in the crockpot?! I’ve never tried making dessert in the slow cooker before, but I’m excited to give this a try.
Other Uses For Cake Mix…
I’ve found so many helpful compilations of unique ways to use cake mix. Everyone knows that any recipe that includes cake mix has got to be good!
