Let There Be (Olive Oil) Cake!


Yesterday, I shared a recipe for Olive Oil Cake over at Scary Mommy’s. It’s super easy to make, it’s light and airy, and delicious. And no, it doesn’t taste like olive oil.

So I thought I’d also introduce you to some of my other favorite cake recipes. For those of you who are scared of baking, don’t be. These recipes are so simple that your kids could follow them. I’m not a fan of long, hard to follow recipes, so I don’t share those here!

7-up-cake My 7 Up Cake recipe is a family favorite. It’s made with just 5 ingredients and you can put it together in no time at all. I also included the 7 Up Cupcakes recipe there too.

If you are heading to a potluck or big get together, this recipe for Holy Cow Cake is perfect. Caramel, chocolate, Butterfingers, and whipped cream all together? Yes please!

dump-cake This Dump Cake recipe sounds better than the name suggests. It’s called dump cake because you literally just dump all the ingredients into the pan. No mess!

This one sounds really gross, I know, but kids LOVE it and it actually tastes really good. Check out my Kitty Litter Cake recipe…if you know a cat lover, you must make it for them!

Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I’m going to share my Upside Down Pumpkin Cake recipe. You’ll never want pumpkin pie again once you’ve tried it.

And last but not least, my mom’s famous Cake recipe. Head over and check it out…you want to, trust me. After reading the recipe, you will know that I didn’t get my love of cooking from her.

Do you have a favorite cake recipe to share? Please leave a link in the comments section so we can all enjoy it!
