From our community to your kitchen, here are our top five snacking cakes for any time at all!
For our latest culinary contest, we asked for your best recipe for snacking cakes: simple cake recipes prepared in just one bowl. If the recipe included frosting, it had to include fewer than than five ingredients, and also come together in one bowl. As always, our community members rose to the challenge, and delivered us a variety of cakes that fit the bill.
Our final six recipes still in the running for the title of "Best Snacking Cake" have arrived just in time to satisfy your sweet tooth during the holidays with very little effort. From a bright and lemony cornbread cake to a rich chocolate cake perfect for serving in squares, you can be sure to find something for you and yours to snack on in the weeks (and months) to come.
By the time your oven preheats, you can have this decadent chocolate snacking cake ready for the oven. This cake has just the right amount of chocolate, with finely grated carrots dancing in the background. Add a swoosh of cream cheese frosting and your holiday dessert is complete.
This cake comes together so easily you can delegate the baking to the kids while you work on dinner. The anise, cinnamon, orange, and vanilla flavors blend beautifully in cake with just the right amount of almond flour to give it a hearty texture.
