Favorite Cake Recipes
I thought I’d share some of my favorite cake recipes. We’re halfway through our holiday trip to New Zealand. Happy New Year to you all!
Vanilla Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
For those rare occasions when you don’t want chocolate!
One of my most pinned cakes. A magnificent specimen for when you need a smaller dessert.
If you need “cake” for breakfast, this ginger-spiced, pear cake drew raves from my girlfriends. They all wanted the recipe.
Shhhhhh….don’t tell that this decadent Bundt cake starts with a box cake mix. No one will ever guess…it’s just THAT good.
For all of you coconut fiends, these vanilla and almond-flavored cupcakes are topped with a huge mound of cream cheese frosting.
I can usually keep my distance when it comes to cakes, but the whole family gave this their approval…and fought for the last slice!
White Chocolate Frangelico Cheesecake
If cheesecakes are your thing, this white chocolate gem with a slosh of Frangelico and chocolate cookie crust will thrill your palate.

Hi Liz, I am so impressed with ALL your recipes and the great tips you include to help make sure things come out great. I just came across your site tagged from another….sure could have used some of your recipes I was baking over the holidays to send goodies to my family! I had a few things that did not come out as well as I hoped and had to scrap. I really hate throwing away good food too. now I am prepared!
I thought I would check to see if you have a good recipe for pineapple upside down cake. I have a friend who loves it and her birthday is mid month, so I thought I would try to make her a superior version for her big day. Also wondered if you have a good recipe for wine crackers that are easy to make. I like to have fun things to serve when a friend pops by for a chat and a glass of wine. Thanks for your help! All the Best- Teres
I wish I had a recipe for you! My husband does not like pineapple, so the last time I made one was decades ago for my dad. I’m going to add it to my baking list. I’m not familiar with wine crackers—are they just crackers to eat while sipping on wine? If so, let me check the blog. I know I have some from Dorie Greenspan, but the publisher didn’t want us to post the recipe.
And though I haven’t made this recipe, it looks good!
Hope this helps! Enjoy!
Love all your cakes. Have a great time in NZ.
Your talent knows no end, Liz. Such beautiful creations and the photography is gorgeous! Now I want dessert…badly!
All eyes are on your chocolate cakes!
