All of these recipes are "a piece of cake" to make because they all start with a store-bought box of cake mix. I love the simplicity of adding a few ingredients to a cake mix to make it special! I've listed all the cake recipes first You will find at the end of this cookbook there are recipes for squares, bar, brownies, and cookies all made with cake mix.
This is a very simple, but oh so delightful spice cake. I saw Paula make this on her show and since I love Love LOVE cinnamon, had to make one. I did already have everything on-hand because I use spice cake mixes for my gingerbread men. I always stock up at the holidays when they're on sale. Next time you need a coffee cake, serve this one!
My Mom got this recipe from my Aunt Frances many years ago and it's always been a family favorite. When my Mom would ask me what kind of cake I wanted for my birthday, this was the one I requested! (Prep-time includes chilling time)
This cake was published in the very first edition of the magazine "Southern Lady". It was created as a tribute to the magazine by a lady in Atlanta known as the "Cake Lady". She is truly talented! This is my most favorite cake and the one that's most often requested at my house. I have been making this cake for years and I follow the recipe exactly as it's written. I have never in all those years had this cake turn out soggy. True, it is a MOIST cake, but if made as written, should not be soggy.
I found this recipe about 25 years ago in a magazine. I realize it isn't a "from scratch" recipe, but sometimes you want something a bit out of the ordinary even though you are pressed for time. Its been a very popular dessert with my family for picnics, BBQ's, etc. and always a success at bake sales. It tastes like those chocolate covered coconut candy bars :)
