Everyone needs something easy, fruity, and a good keeping cake. This one works with any pie fillin but blueberry makes for a fabulous tasting and good looking cake. The crumb topping is just the perfect final touch.
From The New Best of BetterBaking.com, Marcy Goldman, Whitecap Books, 2009, this is a lofty spice cake, perfect for Thanksgiving or any coffee klatch occasion. This is a fine-grained, delicate cake that's also moist and gently spiced. It features a penuche-style sweet pecan brown sugar glaze. This is the recipe my testers bring to work, volunteer venues, schools and the book club when they want to get that wow! reception.
Tangerine juice, citrus zest and orange oil make this cake a winner.
See if this doesn’t remind you of your favorite frozen pound cake.
A treat for the young and old.
Every gal should have a couple of perfect chocolate cakes in her repertoire. This one is the one that, aside from Lawsuit Muffins, made my reputation as a new pastry chef at the infamous Terre Etoile Health Food Cafe and Bookstore. Terre Etoile was my trial by fire, second job as a professional baker (do we count the first job? I lasted 4 days). It was where I fell in love for the first time, made legendary Lawsuit Muffins, and learned, like the gingerbread man, to scoot from the oven to ....another frying pan. Ah, such is life. This is the loving cup of chocolate cakes. It is easy on butter and sour cream and yet yields a truffle like interior that is only perfected with its thick, dark chocolate glaze.
You know those delightful chocolate oranges by Terry's? A whole chocolate orange splits into milk chocolate, orange-scented wedges that are just wonderul (and a traditional holiday gift). The Terry's orange is always a welcome sweet treat but really divine, if you coarsely chop one up and add it to this tender, buttery cake. You can marbleize this cake or leave it as a vanilla-orange batter, with the Terry's Orange pieces, flecked throughout the cake. This cuts into thick, moist slices of cake - not as heavy as most pound cakes and richer than a quick bread.

This recipe is now in A Passion for Baking, Marcy Goldman, Oxmoor House, 2007. www.OxmoorHouse.com or www.amazon.com.
Bakeries sell huge honey cakes that are cut in mammoth slabs. Sometimes, they are baking in industrial baking pans, their sides lined with greased brown baker’s paper. I like the look and generous cuts that result. Here is a home-style version that features the great taste of home-made with the wonderful, commercial look of a real bakery-style honey cake. It lasts up to a week just covered or 2-3 months, frozen. Just make sure you prepare the pan with its parchment paper ‘cake girdle’. This cake will stop even a great grandma in her tracks. Wow appeal galore. This is a totally awesome cake that is the holiday 'memory' maker but simply the best spice cake ever.

Sorry- this cake is now permanently installed in the print cookbook, The New Best of BetterBaking.com, Marcy Goldman, Whitecap Books 2009. It is also (with respect to Oprah called the "M" List Lemon Lime Cake). Do you ever watch Oprah when she touts her 'favorite things' . On one such show, this cake was one of them.and I believe it originally came from a bakery in Florida (the cake - not this recipe - I made my own stupendous version!). Food Network show host (Unwrapped) Marc Sommers has also mentioned the cake. Everytime the cake cakes mentions (and it does), traffic on BB increases dramatically and suddenly people inquire about this utterly majestic cake I created. What a heavenly Key Lime Bundt Cake. The one I saw on TV inspired me to invent my own magical lime-infused cake, topped with an unforgettable glaze. This is a high standing, sweet-tart lime bundt butter cake that is moist and fine-crumbed. The fragrance of it cooling is the scent of Paradise. Buy the book and bake the cake or Google for someone who does bundt cake mail order but frankly - how can anything compete with an original from your own kitchen?
