This is Mom's favorite chocolate cake. Easy to make and has a little different twist. Also has no eggs or dairy products. Pick your favorite frosting for the top--Mom likes 7-minute the best.

Recipe #40237

Just wait until you taste this, it is so easy to make and so good! The success of this cake will depend on the quality of ice cream that you use, so try to purchase the best, also try this using chocolate ice cream and mint Oreo cookies :) You can double this recipe but you will need a larger pan or make two pans! Plan ahead this needs time to freeze, prep time includes freezing time.

Recipe #227924

Yes, this cake is made with beets! And you won't believe how great it is. I got the recipe from a friend who said it is the most requested cake in her family. Even the kids want it for their birthday cake. I baked it for one of our family gatherings and now, I get lots of requests for it too. The batter looks red, but the red bakes out. I use an almond flavored frosting on it sometimes. Other times I just serve it with homemade whipped cream.

Recipe #63346

This really a scrumptious cake, though it is true, as some reviewers have noted, that the frosting just barely covers all three layers. You could double the recipe, as some people have done, or you could make a batch and a half. Your call. To make a batch and a half, the measurements would then be: 3/4 cup butter; 1-1/2 cups dark brown sugar; 1/4 + 2 tablespoons milk; and 3 cups of confectioner's sugar. Hopefully, this will give you enough frosting without having too much left over in your bowl, which, if you're anything like me, you will then be forced to eat at least *some* of, so as not to have to wash it all down the sink. ; )

Recipe #80411

I recently tried a Russian Honey Cake, which was one of the yummiest cakes I have ever tasted. It was so nice I decided to find the recipe and learn to make it myself. It took me about 6 months searching the net (on websites mostly in Russian, which I definitely don't read or speak) translating from Russian using an online translator, and trying different recipes before I found this recipe, which has produced a result at least as nice as the one I tried. I baked 2 pieces at a time on baking paper on an oven tray. Each batch took just long enough to cook, that I had two more ready to swap when the first ones were done. The cream filling (and coating) is made from sour cream and sugar. The sour cream is simply whipped with the sugar until the sugar dissolves. The original recipe said to add sugar "by intuition"; I think you're supposed to keep adding more until it thickens, but the time I tried that it was too sickly sweet! I have also made the filling/coating using fresh cream - 750ml, soured with 1/2 cup lemon juice and beaten until just starting to thicken (you still use the sugar & honey). This was for a vegetarian who pointed out that the cultured sour cream I used had gelatin in it. A slightly different taste, but a very nice variation. I personally don't like walnuts all that much, so I leave them out whenever I cook this.

Recipe #115160

This makes a delicious dessert that looks great! I saw it in Woman's Day magazine and they called for using Whoppers candy, but I used Oreos in mine. Cook time is for the 6 hour freeze time (but it may not take the full 6 hours for the cake to freeze firmly).

Recipe #66404

Is it a carrot cake with a rich caramel flavour or a caramel cake with a carrot undertone? Either way, this layer cake has a caramel frosting topped with a butterscotch/chocolate glaze.

This is THE BEST cake!! It is so good! At potlucks and get-togethers, it always disappears quickly. I love the light lemon flavor and the moistness of the cake. I got the recipe from my mother. It's always been a family favorite.

Recipe #31500

No, there aren't 14 carrots in it--only two, but this carrot cake with pineapple and pecans and a cream cheese frosting--worth every cent! It is from a Junior League Cookbook.

Recipe #17480

This is the absolute best Carrot Cake I have ever tasted. It comes from Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Station 63-- it's not hospital food, but a recipe from one of the nurses there. It is fantastic! Make it a day ahead and put it in the fridge after it is frosted and it gets even better!

Recipe #90935

This cake is an absolute chocolate-lover's dream! The glaze must be a little warm when poured over the cooled cakes or the glaze will not set properly, place in the refrigerator as soon as possible to harden the glaze --- one box of Duncan Hines deviled food chocolate cake mix may be used instead and baked in two 8-inch round pans, I previously baked the cakes in 9-inch pans and found they were too flat, so I suggest 8-inch pans for the boxed cake mix :)

Recipe #160433

No creaming or folding, this is a simple, quick and easy stand-by sponge. Choose your own filling, fruit, cream, lemon curd or jam. For a variation add some vanilla essence, lemon or orange zest to the ingredients. Requires 2 round 8 inch sandwich baking tins, greased and lined with baking paper. I sometimes need to cut a thin slice from the top of of one of the sponges to level them before I sandwich them together.

Recipe #49244

Crisp layers of almond-filled meringue baked on top of cake layers, then sandwiched with whipped cream and drizzled with melted chocolate!

A small simple cake with a slight almond toasted almond taste. Really out of this world. You can substitute almond extract for 3/4 of the vanilla if a stronger almond taste is desired. This cake employs an unusual mixing method that ensures good results.

Recipe #26089

This is a very rich cake, I like it best served a little warm. This is from the cookbook Chocolate Cake by Michele Urvater.

Recipe #24689

So glad I adopted this recipe. I finally tried it and my family all said yum!

Recipe #142

A family friend gave me this recipe, and WOW!!!! This is a totally AWESOME cake!

Recipe #97318

This is a decadent chocolate cake. It is very, very rich. If you want to make a Mounds Cake, just leave the almonds off. Cook time is an estimate for the cake only.

Chocolate, Almond, & Coconut make up this 2 layer cake. One layers is the coconut layer and the other is chocolate almond. This is made for a crowd. You can make the whole cake or just each layer. If baking both cakes at once be sure to rotate them in the oven for even baking.

Recipe #125835

Found this recipe on the back of a McCormick Coconut Extract Box. This cake is so moist and everybody loves this cake. I have added shredded coconut on the top of the cake and it is marvelous! But I love coconut.
