    This is like a giant Hostess Ho Ho. The creme filling is the key here I think.

    Recipe #11799

    You can mix this up in a hurry.

    Recipe #38966

    I won a Blue Ribbon for this cake in 1986 at the Ohio State Fair.

    Recipe #28684

    This is a MUST if you have never tried a homemade Angel Food Cake. I never liked Angel Food Cakes until the neighbor lady invited me over for coffee shortly after I was married. That was almost 15 years ago, and my children and husband always ask for this for special occasions. Thank you Artie, for being a wonderful friend and for the recipe!

    These comments are from their cookbook: "At Magnolia we decided to make our cake not quite a traditional yellow cake or a traditional sponge cake, given the use of whole eggs in our recipe. We're sure you'll agree this recipe is moist, delicious and makes a beautiful layer cake or cupcakes for birthdays or any celebration. Frost with pink buttercream icing and lots of colored sprinkles as we do, and feel as though you're at your seventh birthday party all over again!"

    Recipe #139518

    This cake is out of this world! I got everyone hyped about it when I spoke of making it for my Mom's birthday. This recipe calls for store-bought lemon curd but I like to use Bev's Lemon Curd recipe!

    Recipe #95914

    I made my daughter's wedding cake using this recipe. It turned out fantastic. The texture is just perfect for a wedding cake -- not too fluffy so it breaks from the weight, but also not overly dense. The flavor, texture and moistness were just right. I made two batches of the batter for a three-tiered wedding cake using 14", 10" and 6" pans that were 3-inches deep. I had enough extra batter for a 9" layer (not a deep pan). This recipe was originally created by Rebecca Sutterby.

    Very good cake that the whole family enjoys. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (February 1985)

    Recipe #113689

    While it takes slightly longer to prepare this recipe than a box mix, the resulting moist, delicious cake makes it VERY worth the little extra time. I consider this 'perfect' chocolate cake. This cake is excellent with both with Recipe #261024 and Recipe #208959 (the dark flavor version). (I use Recipe #95416 when I'm decorating the cake.) I love how the leftovers are still moist even a day or two later. (I store my loosely covered with plastic wrap.) My father adores this cake with Recipe #261024 on it. For his birthday, Father's Day etc. I make him cupcakes with the icing on them and individually wrap them. He keeps them in his freezer for when he wants "a piece of cake". He claims they are as good as when they are fresh. (Even though it isn't where I got the recipe from so I can't vouch for it, reviewers have said it is the recipe on the Hershey's cocoa can. I would recommend using their Special Dark Cocoa if possible.)

    Recipe #2496

    This is an excellent, excellent cake, although not inexpensive to make. You can make it dairy free, just don't use butter on the pans. It can also be made gluten-free, if you use rice flour. I have not given instructions for icing it, but it should be iced and generally presented quite formally; this is a special occasion cake. I like either a chocolate frosting or glaze on this. Also I have tinted and rolled out marzipan which I then cut with cookie cutters and used to decorate the iced cake. If I put a chocolate glaze on it, I like to add a thin layer of apricot jam over the cake first. "Go nuts!" (Prep time does not include icing or decorating the cake.)

    Recipe #67458

    My mom grew up with her grandma making this for special occasions. She finally found a recipe just like her grandmother's a few years ago on the internet and was sooo happy to have it back!!! This is from the Southern forum on about. This DOES not have cream cheese in the icing or coconut, if that's what your looking for keep on a looking.

    Recipe #123613

    Absolutely the most delicious, moist cake ever with a decadent topping. Very simple to make, my family just loves this!

    Recipe #98869

    This recipe is by far the best Pineapple Upside Down cake that I've ever made. It is also quick and easy. The cake is very moist and rises much higher than the average recipe. The combination of pineapple cake mix and pineapple juice isn't overwhelming either. I've been meaning to edit this for ages, however it looks so much better if you use dark brown sugar. Also if you'd like more topping, use 3/4 cup butter with 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar.

    Recipe #70646

    This is one of (if not) the BEST banana cake I have ever tasted! I thought the oven temp of 275° sounded a little low, but this cake baked up (and rose) beautifully in my oven at this temp after pretty much exactly one hour. I do not know if the little "freezer trick" to this recipe is what ensured its moistness or not, but I did it, and it was exceptionally moist & delicious. Would be interesting to see if it still came out as great if this step was skipped. All I know is that I followed this recipe EXACTLY as stated (except that I had no buttermilk, so I subbed with a mix of lemon juice & milk) and I got exceptional results. So moist and yummy...a dense cake, similar in texture to a carrot cake... I personally would not call this frosted banana bread :o) Depending on the amount of frosting you like you can decide whether to half the recipe or not. I used the full recipe and had some leftover. I sprinkled on the chopped walnuts and threw this baby in the fridge and cut it the next day...TO DIE FOR! I really liked it slightly chilled, but great at room temp too! It got better each day it sat, I always make this cake at least the day before I need or want it. I was extremely pleased with this cake and will be making it over & over again!! So glad I came across this one!! (on another website). (* * Just to update the recipe, (based on some of the reviews), the baking time may vary based on individual ovens. It was RIGHT ON for my oven, but some others have stated it has taken 1 hour 10 minutes, 1 hour 20 minutes, and my sister just informed me that it took 1 hour 30 minutes in her oven!!!!!)

    If you are looking for a show-stopper dessert, this is it!

    Recipe #227934

    I made this cake for my little brother's 12th birthday with the request of a chocolate cake. It was truly amazing- weeks later my family (nonetheless after being stuffed with a huge dinner and dessert) was still talking about how fabulous the cake was! Nice and moist and the frosting...oooh. Recipe for a 9"x13" pan, but can be made as a wonderful layer cake. Prep time includes cooling and frosting (with some extra leeway). From www.donogh.com

    Recipe #49613

    This chocolate cake is absolutely thee best we have ever had. It is so moist and rich, I never make anything else (unless I am short on time :) The frosting recipe included goes perfectly with this cake, but you can use any frosting you like. Try this once and you'll see why I call it "The Only Chocolate Cake Recipe You'll Ever Need"!! Adding 2/18/06: I want to note that I recently used sweetened whipped heavy cream with vanilla and it was just as fabulous as the frosting recipe listed, plus much easier. I also used hazelnut coffee in the cake and it added even more of a little extra something!

    Recipe #26370

    This recipe comes from a local tea room where I was the baker for awhile. It is a little different from others posted because it is a layer cake with filling and frosting.

    Recipe #133107

    Creamy and rich, this cheesecake is a show stopper. It has three beautiful layers of cheesecake - strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate. It tastes heavenly and the flavors blend well together. Topped with a chocolate glaze it is really an indulgence that will receive many compliments - before and definitely after eating it! The recipe was printed in Taste of Home magazine and submitted by Sherri Regalbuto.

    Recipe #91185

    This is a decadent, moist cheesecake that never fails. I got the recipe from my sister-in-law who brings it to every family function. There are never any leftovers! *This cheesecake needs to be made and refrigerated one day in advance. Hope you enjoy!
