Yellow cake mix, applesauce and raisins make this moist pleasantly spiced loaf a no-fuss favorite of LuEllen Spaulding. "I turn to this recipe when unexpected guests drop by because I usually have the ingredients in the cupboard," writes the Caro, Michigan baker. For a special occasion, top slices with fresh fruit.
Loaded with chewy dates and crunchy pecans, this cake is a "must" to take to family gatherings. The sweet and zesty orange sauce tops it off just right. This cake slices nicely and looks so appetizing served on a pretty plate.
This home—style dessert that takes just moments to prepare. “I often substitute white cupcakes for the pound cake,” says Charlene Turnbull from Wainwright, Alberta. “It’s one of our favorite desserts!”
Fresh from reader Leah Grooms' "pumpkin patch", this rich cake's so flavorful it'll dress up any autumn event. What's more, she writes from her Rockingham, North Carolina kitchen, it keeps for days—so you can prepare it prior to your party.—Leah Grooms, Rockingham, North Carolina
