Chocolate Berry Hill Cake

A new version of one of my all-time favorite cakes!  My favorite German cake involves chocolate, a mound of my famous whipped cream, and bananas. Here I’ve swapped out the bananas for blueberries and chopped strawberries for a lovely red-white-and-blue chocolate cake. It’s the perfect cake to make when you’ve got gorgeous summer berries on…

Hummingbird Cake

With fresh banana, pineapple bits, toasted pecans, a hint of cinnamon and cream cheese frosting, it’s no wonder Hummingbird Cake is a favorite among southern bakers! This cake magically gets even more moist and amazing day after day, making it an excellent make-ahead dessert. It’s honestly better on day three than it is the day…

Classic Birthday Cake

This classic Birthday Cake is three layers of old-fashioned buttermilk cake with delicious chocolate frosting. This cake hits the spot. The crumb is incredibly moist. You won’t even believe it when you take a bite! Me, a cake snob, was thrilled to pieces when I first took a bite. The secret ingredient? Cornstarch and buttermilk…

Meyer Lemon Cupcakes

This is just the dreamiest cupcake I ever did bake! If you love lemon, you absolutely must try this recipe. It’s citrus season, darlings, and lemon just so happens to be one of my favorite flavors. I always, always, always have lemons in my house and they’re never tastier than they are in the dead…

Chocolate Cinnamon Cake

This is one of those cakes that I’ve baked many times and have never published on The Rose Table. Why? I’m not sure! I baked these as cupcakes for my cookbook a couple of years ago and everyone raved about them and I thought, I need to blog this! Better late than never, right? This recipe…

Caramel Apple Layer Cake

I adore apple season. I almost exclusively eat apples in the fall when they’re at their very best. I combined my favorite apple cake recipe with my favorite caramel frosting and drizzle (you might recognize it from my Bananas Foster Cake) for the most magical fall cake. It tastes even more magical than it looks!…

Chocolate Banana Sheet Cake

What a delightful, easy cake this is! I was craving cake at the lake house yesterday and had perfectly ripe bananas so I decided to try out my favorite banana sheet cake with my favorite chocolate frosting and it was positively magical. The cake is a one-bowl recipe, perfect for lazy day baking. It’s really…

Triple Berry Cake

What a show-stopping dessert this is! With blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries baked into the batter and frosting that’s light as air, this cake is sure to please a crowd. Make this in the summertime when you can get really, really juicy berries. It will make all the difference! Use the leftover fruit from the cake…

Chocolate Strawberry Torte

Is this not the cutest little cake?! It’s so demure and very German with its single layer and whipped cream in lieu of frosting, hence the name Chocolate Strawberry Torte. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: my Best Ever Chocolate Cake freezes really, really well. I baked two layers and used…
