I came up with this spiced cake after Thanksgiving to use up my leftover sweet potatoes. To prevent discoloration after grating, I keep them loosely covered with a damp paper towel.—Deborah Biggs, Omaha, Nebraska
I can turn any meal into a celebration with this cake. When they cut into it, people are bowled over by this moist not-too-sweet cake. The pecan filling is another unexpected treat.—Linda Van Holland, Innisfail, Alberta
"I've had the recipe for this cake for years--it's a chocolate lover's delight!" writes Ann Purchase of Panama City, Florida. "It's so easy to make...and is perfect for cupcakes and bake sale treats, too. I get many requests for the recipe."
I like to spice up our Thanksgiving dinner with this special dessert featuring two popular holiday flavors. A delicious alternative to pumpkin pie, it's my favorite potluck contribution. —Deborah F. Hahn, Belle, Missouri
Rhubarb thrives in my northern garden and is one of the few crops the pesky moose don't bother! Of all the rhubarb desserts I've tried, this pudding cake is my No. 1 choice. It has old-fashioned appeal but is so simple to prepare.
