What your favorite type of cake?

My partner has such a vanilla palette. He always opts for white cake with white frosting—yuck.

My fav is German chocolate with its coconut and nut frosting. It’s tough to find so I figure it’s complicated to make.

Yours?

I like old-school vanilla cake, with chocolate frosting. That’s my favorite.

I also love a good carrot cake, but really good ones are rare.

OP, there's a great recipe for German Chocolate Cake in the 1997 edition of Joy of Cooking, by Ethan Becker. I like to bake, so I don't consider it complicated to make.

The original Silver Palate Cookbook has a recipe for carrot cake I've used a lot and people have liked. It's a bit controversial, though, as it uses pineapple and coconut.

Cheesecake? It's neither cheese nor cake. Can't stand that pasty texture.

I make a great carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Sometimes I put raisins in the cake batter but then it tastes more like a spice cake. I think the cream cheese frosting is what makes the cake!

my mother's spice cake with penuche frosting

On a related note - when I first moved to DC, and joined a gay social group, we had a "meetup." We were to bring cakes/pies. I was told by numerous people that this particular man's Carrot Cake was THE BEST EVER. So, naturally, I was excited. When the cake eating began, I tried the carrot cake - it was HORRIBLE. As I was taking my first bite, a few of the guys were staring at me. I didn't know that it was a prank. These guys had always been super nice to this older gentleman, telling him how great his carrot cake was when, in fact, they all hated it. I took a few bites, then secretly put the rest into a napkin, and hid it at the bottom of the trash can. The carrot-cake gentleman is very nice, and the host of the event, so no one wants to hurt his feelings.

I’m pretty basic in cake choices. Vanilla, chocolate, marble. Grew up in the 70s with plenty of Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines box mixes. Not a big fan of cheesecake. My mom used to make my dad a carrot cake for his birthday but I remember it was a lot more work than her other baked goods.

Carrot cake is great, but it's one of those things that has to be high-quality to really be enjoyable. You can get away with a cheap chocolate or vanilla cake that will still taste good, but I've never found that to be the case with carrot cake.

My grandmother had a chocolate caramel layer cake recipe that is still probably my favorite cake I've ever had. It's two layers of German chocolate cake, with a caramel filling with chocolate chips and walnuts in the middle. You bake the first layer, then cover it with the caramel, chocolate chips, and walnuts, add the second layer of cake batter, and bake again. When it cools, the chocolate chips harden and give the caramel layer a bit more texture (along with the walnuts). The frosting that goes on it is made out of whipped cream and vanilla Jello pudding mix. I've made it a few times over the years and never received anything but compliments. It's great, but too decadent. I avoid making it for this reason.

Used to love the cheesecake at Il Fornaio. Since I came to Romania, before the pandemic, the fraus at work made crazy good Dobos torte and a local type of doughnut where the dough is made with sweet cheese and then it is deep fried, covered with the doughnut hole and sweet sour cream is the topping with boysenberry syrup drizzled on top.

What does white cake taste like? As a child, I always marveled at the white cake mixes in the store and couldn’t imagine what they tasted like—flavorless? Bitter? The golden or yellow cakes seemed to have the flavor that I would imagine a white cake would have, in the sense that they were fairly plain and just tasted like butter, eggs, and sugar. To this day I don’t think I’ve had a white cake!

I also don’t know if I’ve ever had vanilla cake.

My favorite cake is chocolate sour cream. The batter just has sour cream in it, which adds moisture. It’s a round layer cake with chocolate (or fudge) buttercream frosting.

Sorry, R151, after I posted that I realized it was very unclear. I meant to say that the sour cream is just an ingredient in the batter, the cake doesn’t taste like sour cream, and it doesn’t have a gooey sour cream center or anything like that.

I love this carrot cake recipe. I'm a whore for cream cheese frosting and I don't put it on this cake because it doesn't need it. Sometimes I'll do an orange glaze if I'm feeling fancy.

For all you carrot cake lovers try one from Caroline's Cakes. Out of this world delicious. I don't know what she does to the icing but it's so light and not overly sweet like so many make it.

Ghetto A&P Spanish Bar Cake that you can't get anymore.

Following that, carrot cake.

A bad combination is chocolate and cream cheese. Cream cheese brings out unpleasant sour notes in the chocolate.

My favourite cake is made by a German bakery here. It’s a modified Furst Puckler cake, with a pie crust bottom layer, 3 alternating layers each of buttercream and cake (white and chocolate), a layer of marzipan, and then covered in chocolate.

I don’t normally like marzipan, but it makes this cake.

Welsh Seedcake. A rich, dense poundcake that includes caraway seeds and chopped, candied orange peel( the real stuff that is meant to be eaten like candy, not the fruitcake ingredient)

Maida Heatter's Chocolate Sour Cream Cake layered with Julia Child's Chocolate Mousse, frosted in REAL chocolate buttercream frosting. Worth every calorie.

Another vote for Spanish Bar Cake.

Sorry to disappoint you, r159........

My mom makes Spanish Bar Cake from scratch. I've never tasted the A & P version, but I guarantee it probably doesn't even come close.

The carrot cake is also homemade, a carrot spice cake with a cream cheese frosting, topped with walnuts.

💕 Nobody bakes like mom.

R147 could you make the pancakes smaller? I have an aversion to pancakes over 5 inches in diameter!

Trader Joe's used to sell a frozen cake imported from France. It had four pears on top - Pear Tarte- what a YUMMY cake. Unfortunately they don't sell it anymore.

Yes! Just use a smaller ladle or measuring cup when you’re pouring the batter into the skillet, that’s all.

Dark, rich chocolate cake with vanilla frosting. Or a Hostess Cupcake will do.

R102, I cannot find any books under that exact title. Are you sure it's exactly that? Who are the author(s) and publisher?
