Delicious Cake Recipes

These cake recipes are what I often use when I make cakes for special occasions.

I wish I could take credit for all the recipes I posted here but my compilation of cake recipes come from different sources such as books, the internet, relatives,cooking shows, magazines and even old newspaper clippings.

Some recipes I've followed directions to the 't' and some I've tweaked to my liking.

When I first started out making cakes, I used boxed cake mixes.

Ready-made cake mixes are not only easy to make, it is also pretty much fail safe. Unless of course it is not burned, resulting cakes are usually moist and fluffy.

Just in the recent years, I learned that you can add ingredients not listed on the box, such as sour cream or pudding mix, to take it to the next level. Nowadays, I prefer baking from scratch.

I love measuring and mixing up ingredients, which reminds me of chemistry class back in college. Yes, I did quite enjoy chemistry and I delight in the idea of experimenting and coming up something new out of a just few substances.


Baking is like that. Out of the butter, flour, eggs and sugar you can conjure up this edible creation that was nothing like the basic ingredients it started with.

Learn how to make a fabulous chocolate cake just with one bowl! You will also find yummy recipes such as strawberry cake, chiffon cake, carrot cake and caramel cake just to name a few.

This collection of recipes is still expanding so please feel free to add your favourites!
