My Mother used to make these eclairs all the time. They are always a hit!

Recipe #193202

My husband is not a big fan of cake, so for his birthday each year, I make cream puffs for him. He loves these so much, I have to make sure he only eats one or two at a time so he doesn't make himself sick! There are several cream puff recipes out there, but this vanilla pastry cream is a bit different from the others and it's really wonderful. Prep time does not include 2 hours chilling of pastry cream. From the Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook.

Recipe #203416

Homemade with a rich custard filling. Recipe is from my days in snow country without a bakery nearby. Better than store-bought! www.recipezaar.com

Recipe was adaped from a recipe printed in the newspaper. I added some short cuts for making this desert. Prep time does not include cooling time (30-45 minutes) for custard filling and cake.

Recipe #57856

At least once in your life you should treat yourself to a real Boston Cream Pie. This recipe is worth all the necessary but easy steps, and makes a single 8" cake which is cut into 2 layers, filled with custard and frosted with glossy chocolate. Cook time includes 45 minutes for cooling the cake and custard.

Recipe #74837

Famous for having been created at the Parker House Hotel in Boston Massachusetts. Adapted from Your Guide to Boston, Mass. A little history: The Omni Parker House Hotel is a hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, currently owned by Omni Hotels and named the Omni Parker House. Not far from the seat of the Massachusetts state government, it has long been a frequent rendezvous for politicians. The Parker House is known for having invented American foods such as Boston cream pie and the Parker House roll, and for having coined the term "scrod". The Omni Parker House currently has 551 rooms and suites that underwent an $80 million renovation completed in 2000. The Parker House opened in 1856. Many well-known people have worked at the Parker House, including Ho Chi Minh who was a baker in the bakeshop from from 1911 to 1913, Malcolm X who was a busboy in the early 1940's, and Emeril Lagasse. John F. Kennedy announced his candidacy for Congress in the hotel's Press Room, proposed to Jackie Kennedy, as well as held his bachelor party here. The hotel was home to the Saturday Club, also referred to as the Saturday Night Club, which consisted of literary dignitaries such as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Recipe #239801

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

Don't be afraid of the deep red color-there is more than a hint of chocolate flavor in this fun and very tasty cake to serve anytime, but especially at Valentine's Day and Christmas. I have also made it into cupcakes for the kiddies to take to school and share. The frosting is buttery and not-too sweet. This is a traditional cake from Chicago to the deep south. Back East you will even find cake mixes for an easy version of "Red Velvet Cake". I tried several versions of this cake and favored this adaptation of Gale Gand's from her "Just a Bite" cookbook

Recipe #19884

Always make this for Valentine's Day. DH loves it and the kids think it is cool.

Recipe #29320

Celebrate Valentine's Day with this outstanding old-fashioned cake! Its texture is fantastic thanks to the incorporation of mashed potatoes into the batter! From Becky Low, who calls the cake "an old family favorite, which dates back to Grandmother's young days. It is a red tinted chocolate cake with a smooth moist texture and a luscious flavor."

Recipe #154977

This makes the perfect red velvet cake! A double recipe of recipe#90142 works great with this cake --- not sure why some members had so much trouble with this cake, for myself it turned out light, moist and wonderful!

Nice light white cake. Delicious served filled with whiped cream or pastry cream and berries, peaches or pineapple.

Recipe #24905

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

A nice light cake with very little fat. Good with a broiled coconut icing.

Very easy and quick. Perfect for classic Boston Cream Pie. Cake is split in half to fill and ice.

Recipe #61939

I was in search of a great yellow cake made from scratch that would taste good if not better than the box. I use this one all the time for my catering business. It makes a thick cake. 6/3/08 Made some changes to make it better.

Recipe #208645

This is the traditional light chocolate cake with the coconut and pecan icing that we remember from our childhood. Note: if you are making the 3 tiered version, I highly recommend you make more of the icing. (It also doesn't hurt to do that if you are making the 2 layered version. Ha ha!) Please use the ingredient amounts in parentheses to increase the yield by about 50%. In response to the one-star review: Yes, it *was* originally called German's Chocolate Cake but most of the mixes, recipes and ads for selling a cake like this, that I see, call it "German Chocolate Cake". That is also what everybody I know calls it and what I would search for if I was looking for the recipe. Therefore, that's what I'm calling mine.

Recipe #3169

Oh Yeah! Now I can make my own cake mixes just like the big boys! This would make a nice gift, along with a cake pan, large mixing spoon, some cocoa, maybe a pot holder, etc. Enjoy! Chocolate cake is popular all over the USA! New England, Southern, Mid West, Mid Atlantic, West and Southwest.

Recipe #129855

This will probably be the only layer cake you will ever use, it's a rich, moist chocolate cake that tastes more like chocolate fudge than a cake, you will be making again and again! --- I have also made this using room temperature Crisco butter-flavor shortening in place of butter --- to take this to yet another level add in 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite liqueur in place of the vanilla, I like Kahlua! --- also see my recipe#89207
