Triple-Citrus Pound Cake

I made this Triple-Citrus Pound Cake because we just moved to a new house that has huge orange and grapefruit trees in the backyard. It's a delicious and easy cake to make.

Lisette’s Pear Torte

This recipe was first published in 1983, Marian Burros’s plum torte (which my cousin Lisette changed to Pear) has become one of the most popular recipes in the history of The Times, and it’s no mystery why. There are so many things to love: It’s easy, it’s practically no-fail and it’s endlessly adaptable.

Jamaican Pound Cake

This Jamaican Pound Cake is an old recipe I found in my mother-in-law's cupboard. It's made from a boxed pound cake mix with the addition of rum, bananas, sour cream and almonds. It's super simple and so good!

Gingerbread Cake

Not being much of a baker, I get very excited when I stumble upon a new and easy - even I can make it - recipe.  This Gingerbread Cake is delicious and the lemony whipped cream is TOO DIE FOR!  You could use this whipped cream on berries or anything really.  This is a must try!

Cider and Five-Spice Bundt Cake with Smoked Salted Caramel Sauce

This seasonal Cider and 5 Spice Bundt Cake is light and refreshingly subtle in its Christmas-y flavors; a perfect end to a heavy holiday meal. A natural ginger spiciness is laced throughout this fluffy and moist cake, cutting the sweetness of molasses. It is, however, the salted caramel sauce drizzled on top that brings this light and airy cake to life.
