A humble slice, square, or wedge of homemade cake never fails to delight and here you’ll find forty-five simple recipes to make any day feel a bit special.
Using ingredients that are readily available, these cakes are unfussy yet sweetly indulgent. Recipes are arranged using pans most of us already have in our kitchens: round, square, loaf, rectangle, sheet, and bundt. Flavors include warm spices, herbs and flowers, and sweet essences, plus chocolate, fruit, nuts, and seeds. An appealingly wide range of cakes will tickle every fancy. The Vanilla Malted Milk with Milk Chocolate Frosting would be perfect for a birthday celebration, the Lemon and Lavender Yogurt cake would be quick to make and satisfying with cup of tea, and the Roasted Strawberry with Whipped Crème Fraiche Shortcake would be the perfect way to end a summer supper. There’s something for every mood and craving in Everyday Cakes.
