Best Cake Recipes

Here you will find the very best cake recipes created in my kitchen, served and enjoyed by many over the years.

The butter pound cake recipe with a light dusting of icing sugar is absolutely delicious to its last crumb, and not difficult to make. The lemon pound cake recipe is also delicious with its lemon glaze and quite refreshing.

Especially the grandkids love the rich chocolate cake recipe with its chocolate frosting, it disappears pretty fast and is such an easy chocolate cake recipe you need to check out.

Then there is a fresh strawberry cake recipe, an apple coffee cake easy recipe, and other scrumptious cakes.
