You’ll need just one bowl to whip up these flavorful cakes from the author of Sweeter off the Vine. And while you can get fancy with bundt or loaf pans, each recipe will also work wonderfully using either an 8-inch square pan, or a 9-inch round.
Yossy Arefi, a regular contributor to publications such as The New York Times and Food52.com who also blogs at Apt2BBakingCo., infuses her love of cake with an appealing range of flavor combinations. Feeling a need for some comfort cake? How about swirled jam cake that lets you choose whatever jam you love? Or maybe an oatmeal chocolate chip cake to recall afterschool treats?
But you can also bake up something with a little more flavor punch, like a coconut lime cake with coconut three ways. Or a zingy grapefruit and white chocolate cake. Venture into even more complex territory with a rhubarb crumb cake with tangy sumac in the crumb.
Simple enough for a beginning baker but interesting enough to satisfy a more experienced one as well.
