             My Top 3 Most Popular Cake Recipes   

Yall know I have the biggest sweet tooth as I always include a dessert chapter in my cookbooks, and cakes are one of my favorites! I love to bake cakes for so many reasons. You can often find me making one to bring to friends, doctors, holiday occasions, birthdays  especially birthdays (who am I kidding even just to eat during the week)! Once I make a cake I have learned which are my most popular by all the folks requesting the recipe.  I decide to share with you three of my top requested cakes, especially during the summer season.  I hope you enjoy these cakes as much as I do.  I would love to hear from you about which cakes you make! Now it is your turn to share!


 
Lemonade Cake: Summer sensation as this is my most talked about recipe! Dont be intimidated - this from scratch cake really is deliciously easy!

  • Use lemonade concentrate (small frozen lemonade) for cake, icing and then make yourself a drink with any left.
  • Citrus, such as lemons, are high in the antioxidant Vitamin C.
  • The antioxidant, Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in growth and tissue repair. Essential for collagen formation, Vitamin C plays a role in helping to keep bone, cartilage and connective tissue strong, helping to relieve arthritis inflammation and pain.

 
Chocolate Italian Cream Cake: My personal weakness and my familys most requested birthday cake.  Any time I make this cake for a friend, it becomes their favorite cake.

  • If you dont like coconut, like my sister, you can leave it out.
  • No time to toast pecans? Then dont as I toast them just to intensify the flavor.
  • If cant find Butter Pecan Cake mix, substitute butter cake mix.
  • Box mixes are a great short-cut secret weapon I love to use.
  • Keep cake mixes stocked in your pantry - at any given time I have at least 3 or more cake mixes on my shelf in all varieties, including yellow, butter pecan, and Devils food.

 
Blueberry Muffin Streusel Cake: No kidding I literally made this cake 3 different times last month to bring to friends  it is that good - everyone wants the recipe!

  • When taking a cake to a friend, use a foil pan.
  • I double the recipe and make in a 13x9x2-inch pan.
  • This luscious cake makes a great breakfast, snack and sweet treat!
  • If using frozen blueberries, dont defrost.
  • You might as well get a bite of nutritious berries with your luscious dessert  leaving you with an extra dose of vitamin C in your dessert.

 
 
Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle uses an angel food cake (buy at store) and combines two favorites, chocolate and peanut butter, into a simple outrageously delicious trifle dessert.  Check it out on YouTube and SUBSCRIBE to my channel.
