Give me some of that cheap ass birthday cake from the grocery store bakery please. Vanilla cake with vanilla frosting.

It was a popular bakery cake around Loma Linda years ago. IIRC, it was a luxurious, moist chocolate cake with chocolate frosting that everyone loved. It didn't taste anything like prunes. I think they just held moisture and added richness and a tender chewiness to the cake.

R33, Chinese Bakery Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake is very easy to make, and there are many variations online. It's actually fairly low-cal. Note the French influence with the Asian preference for not very sweet desserts. Fruit is considered a special treat across Asia too.

1) Make vanilla pudding or custard, using egg yolks 2) Make a sponge/angel cake, using the egg whites 3) Fill cake with pudding and sliced strawberries, or other fruit 4) Top cake with pudding, fruit, and then frost with whipped cream

No one mentioned fruitcake. It has a bad rap, probably because the mass-produced ones aren't very good. The truth is, if you get one that is properly made it can be heavenly. Remember this WAS cake when people said 'cake' in the 18th and 19th centuries. I make a Sri Lankan fruitcake (recipe is probable British) that costs about $65 dollars or more to make. I make it with the upmost care, it takes all day and needs to soak for weeks in brandy. I promise you'll never eat a richer, moister, fruitier, spicier cake in your life. Fruitcakes are my favorite kind of cakes.

Chocolate Upside-Down Cake: Read it again, and weep tears of joy, this stuff will set you free. Served hot with vanilla ice cream. See? Carrot Cake: All homemade, even the walnut filling. Thick cream cheese frosting. I make it as a big sheet cake, and it always disappears. Fruitcake: My Mom's Tomato Soup Cake recipe is the best. Every September I make dozens of loaves for holiday gifts, and a few triple-sized ones for entertaining. The big ones I cover with fondant, and decorate with colored frosting to look like holly leaves and berries. You'd change your mind about fruitcakes if you ever tasted it. Poundcake: A GOOD poundcake is incomparable. I don't have much of a sweettooth, but I never pass up poundcake.

IMO, Duncan Hines makes the best box cakes out here. One of my favorites is the chocolate. I dump a small package of Jello instant chocolate pudding in it, throw in some semi sweet chocolate chips, or chocolate mint chips (with a couple of drops of mint extract) and it is the most delicious bundt cake I've ever tasted.

Their chocolate frosting, heated in the microwave for about 15 seconds so you can drizzle it, (generously) over the cake is wonderful. Sometimes we poke little holes in the still warm cake and if the icing is the right consistency it seeps into the cake. I do that when I don't have any chocolate morsels.

To finish it off, once the cake is cooled I shave pieces of white or dark chocolate on top for a garnish. It's so easy and simple to make, and when I serve it, (with ice cream) it's always a hit. People love it. Never any cake left over. there's a recipe for the pudding bundt cake on the side of the package.

We'd combine the batters for Duncan Hines Butter Cake, and Duncan Hines lemon cake, after they'd been mixed separately. Mother always used a very large square baking pan. Almost a cookie sheet but with slightly higher sides.

After it was baked and cooled, she'd carefully place it on a large tin foil covered sheet of cardboard, and cut it in half to make two square layers. She'd use Jello lemon pie filling (the kind you have to cook) between the layers. (She used less water than the recipe called for so it wouldn't be too runny.)

Then she'd use the crème cheese or the vanilla white icing to frost the entire cake, and sprinkle shredded coconut all over it, top and sides. She arrange thinly sliced lemons on top in the center, or candied lemon slices.

That was our all purpose family celebration cake for Easter, birthdays, and special occasions. I loved it. By using both kinds of batter for the cake, there was just a light hint of lemon. If you only use the lemon, it was too strong in her opinion.

This shit will disappear if left out. My mom would let us kids make it when we were little because it was so easy. It comes out almost brownie like.

by Anonymousreply 13007/10/2013

I use the recipe on the side of the box with Duncan Hines to make a bundt cake with instant pudding. But I use water, oil and eggs not milk. I sometimes will add some semi sweet chocolate chips to it.

It has a really rich really chocolate taste and it really rises high in the pan. We microwave the chocolate frosting for about 20 seconds so we can drizzle it over the cake. You can also poke holes with a toothpick while the cake is still sort of warm and drizzle the chocolate and it will penetrate the cake. So good.

For variety use mint chocolates chips. With Brownies, right after we take them out of the over, we place busted up pieces of Girardelli white chocolate bark with red peppermint streaks on the warm brownies and it melts and it's delish.
