    I have been home tooooooooooo long...too many cooking shows. What is your favorite cake? I love a flourless chocolate, a lemon and most versions of cheesecake. Really there are not many cakes I do not like. :lol:

    Does Tiramisu count as cake? If it does, that's it by far. Love it! My other favorite is probably mandarin orange cake. It's a three layer cake and has pineapple in it too. A very light summery cake. When I was little it was Cherry Chip cake with cherry icing. I always wanted my Mom to make it for me on my birthday.

    It was a cake out of a box. I don't think they make it anymore. They might make strawberry though. Duncan Hines I think.

    I'm right there with you with the above choices.
    If I had to pick just one, I'd probably go with chocolate cheesecake. I could sit down and eat the entire thing myself.
    Years ago my husband and I had a flourless chocolate cake at a restaurant in Denver and we were literally up all night with what we assume was a caffeine overdose from the intense chocolate.

    We like tiramisu, German chocolate, butter pecan cake, and poundcake - not the store bought kind, but good ol' homemade kind.

    Homemade carrot cake with gobs and gobs of cream cheese frosting. In an pinch, Publix makes a pretty darn good version which we've had many times.

    I went to a wedding once that had the best cake! It was a while ago, so I don't remember the total combination. The cake was poppy seed, definitely. The filling was either mango or lemon cream. And the frosting--maybe cream cheese? Does that sound right? Anyway, it was the best cake and I wished I had had more slices.

    I love this new forum Kurt! What a great idea!
    I read BR lemon vinagrette recipe...so simple..I am sure it is good....
    This forum is right up my alli ( ) I think using it to scope out resturants in cities is a great idea..Like when I go to some new city...I can ask if any one has been there and where to eat...
    I love recipes!!!
    BTW would the penis cake be included in this forum??
    LOL...I mentioned "the cake" in the "I Love This" thread :floor:
    My favorite cake...I have a recipe for a chocolate hazelnut torte that is to die for...I love Margarita Cheese Cake, coconut cake...and a sinfully EASY dump cake!! ( I make this for the sorority house often...and it is soooo darn good and easy!!) It is like a peach (bluberry...or mixed fruit) cobbler...with no fuss no muss...you literally DUMP the ingredients in a bake pan!!!! :wub:...I just remembered another favorite...a lemon-ginger cake :lolabove:

    Happy Valentine's Day!:wub:


    Here is a super simple yummy cake recipe- lots of cinnamon streusel. Great to bake and freeze too.

    2 C graham cracker crumbs 1 pkg. yellow cake mix
    3/4 C brown sugar 1 C water
    1 !/4 tsp cinnamon 1/4 C veg oil
    3/4 C melted butter (real!) 3 eggs

    Oven: 350 Grease a tube pan

    Mix crumbs, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter, set aside.

    Blend cake mix, water, oil, eggs on low speed til moistened- about 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 3 minutes. (Pink Cuisinarts will work fine here)

    Pour 1/2 batter into pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 of crumb mixture. Spread remaining batter over crumbs, top that with remaining crumb mixture.

    Bake 40-45 minutes.

    Glaze- 1 C powdered sugar mixed w/ 2 Tbl. water and drizzle over cake. Would be good with a cream cheese icing, or add cinnamon to the glaze.
