    Pantespani is a traditional light sponge cake, soaked in a light syrup. It can be served as is, with toppings such as whipped cream and strawberries (similar to strawberry shortcake), with some toasted almonds, or other toppings of your choice, and without the syrup as any other sponge cake. The tastes of orange, cloves, and cinnamon give it a lovely taste and fabulous aroma. Adapted from a recipe by Nancy Gaifyllia. Time to make doesn't include syrup cooling time. ZWT 4.

    Recipe #324575

    These little cakes are very light, because there's no butter or oil in the batter. However, do not use fat-free yogurt; you still need a little bit of the fat in here. Different brands of pumpkin butter vary in their sweetness and spice level, so adjust the sugar and spices to suit your taste. (I used my own homemade pumpkin butter, recipe #509564). Adapted from at Serious Eats.

    This is my favorite holiday bread to make and I am not that much of an eggnog lover! Make great gifts! You can freeze the eggnog and make year long, too!

    Recipe #77487

    Adapted from "A Taste of the Virgin Islands" by Angela Spencely. The glaze is the secret; it freezes well and goes great on other cakes, so make double. The rum preserves the cake, so it travels well, too

    Recipe #507990

    A friend of mine clipped this recipe out of some magazine last week & passed it on to me thinking (correctly!) that I'd be interested in it! Love those kinds of friends! The first time I made this I used a combination of frozen blueberries, raspberries & marionberries!

    Recipe #296504

    This is of the variety where the cake layer floats on a layer of lemon sauce underneath after baking.

    A very simple recipe that yields fabulous results! People won't believe this came out of a crock pot!

    Recipe #20287

    This is from Julia Child's first book, The French Chef. I learned so much from the early days of that show. This was my first attempt to make a cake from scratch when I was a wee one. My copy of The French Chef is pretty ragged. My boxer loved the book so much he ate the cover.

    Recipe #240126

    This simple dessert (a cross between a cobbler and a buckle) comes together in minutes. If you don't have buttermilk, add 2 tsp lemon juice to 3/4 c sweet milk about 15 minutes ahead of time. In that case, add some lemon zest to the batter, too.

    Recipe #482336

    I adore this little lemon pound cake. It's the perfect size when you just need enough for 2 people. The bonus is... it's quick and easy to put together. I can have this in the oven in less then 5 minutes. How great is that?!? This doubles very nicely for when you need a little more but still don't need a big dessert. When doubling, don't double the baking soda, just leave it at 1/8 teaspoon.

    Recipe #455305

    Most banana breads are either lacking in flavor or hopelessly dense. This version cooks out some of the water to help reduce the density. The bananas should be VERY ripe, heavily speckled with brown and black. You may use thawed, frozen bananas for the five mashed bananas; because they will exude a lot of liquid when thawing, you can skip the microwaving step and simply put them in the strainer. (Peel them before freezing to prevent the extracted liquid from turning black.) Do not use a frozen banana for the top of the loaf; it will be too soft to slice. Adapted from Cook's Illustrated.

    Recipe #453178

    Adapted from a recipe at the LiveJournal blog of fantasy author Lynn Flewelling (_Stalking Darkness_, _The Bone Doll's Twin_), which she got from _Cook's Illustrated_.

    Recipe #452188

    A dense carrot cake scented with rum, served with a mascarpone cream. (If you skip the mascarpone cream, it's gluten-free and dairy-free.) From Nigella Kitchen 1x04 "Kitchen Tourist"

    Recipe #451140

    I love so many of Ina Garten's recipes - I have seldom been let down. This is one fantastic baba recipe, nice and boozy without being overwhelming. I have adapted it slightly to serve my love of citrus. Prep time does not include rising time. From Barefoot in Paris book.

    Recipe #153278

    Adapted from a gluten-free recipe on Serious Eats, converted to make it non-GF.

    Recipe #446300

    Icebox cakes are layers of cookies sandwiched with whipped cream or custard; the cookies soak up the moisture in the filling and become soft. This one uses chocolate graham crackers, which are easier to find and less expensive than the more traditional Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers. If you can't find New Mexican chile powder, any single-variety chile powder in the mild-to-moderate-heat category will work; avoid "chili powder," which usually has other herbs and spices (like garlic and oregano, as well as salt) added. Adapted from a recipe by Andrea Lynn at Serious Eats.
