This cake is one of my grandfather's favorites. And it seems like he always knows when you're making it—he must have a keen sense of smell! The recipe was passed down through the generations beginning with my great-grandmother. Sometimes I can imagine her making it all those years ago.
This recipe was given to me by a co-worker, and it gets rave reviews every time. I've tried it with other fruits, including blueberries, cherries, and peaches. All work out great. — Michele Trachier, Pasadena, Texas
This fluffy cake is full of citrus flavor but not much fat or cholesterol. Preparation starts with a boxed mix for convenience and ends with a refreshing two-ingredient lemon glaze.—Bonita Giesbrecht, Glenn, California
Bring these extra-special cupcakes to your next event and watch how quickly they disappear! With a caramelly topping and spice cake base, they're the perfect mix of two fall-favorite treats. —Diane Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas
I rely on applesauce to keep this crowd-pleasing cake tender and moist. The blend of nuts, cranberries and apples complements the subtle hint of wheat flour for terrific taste.—Martha Pollock, Oregonia, Ohio
