At our Wisconsin farm, dessert was just as important as the main course. This idea has followed us to California, where I'm still on the lookout for good dessert recipes. This moist cake is a favorite since it's chock-full of fun ingredients like chocolate candy bars, pecans and coconut.

I used this easy recipe frequently when I made brown-bag lunches for our children years ago. This recipe doesn't call for frosting, so slices travel well. Sour cream in the batter makes each piece deliciously moist. You're sure to enjoy this recipe.—Barbara Hofstede, Waukesha, Wisconsin
Sweet potatoes are not only tasty and versatile, they're good for you as well. Family and friends never mind eating a nutritious vegetable when it's part of this easy-to-prepare dessert, I like to serve this as a snack cake or breakfast coffee cake.—Kathy Theriot, St. Martinville, Louisiana
When you visit friends or relatives in my area of the country, you can be sure the coffee will be brewing soon and their favorite dessert will be served. This is my favorite - maybe that's why I get a lot of visitors!
