Silly cake question

Birmingham | May 23, 2011 09:09 PM

I have not made nor eaten many cakes in my life. But since moving to the South a few years ago, I've had some pretty good cakes and am starting to sit up and take notice. But when I have an Italian cream or coconut cake or a salted caramel cupcake, what I like is the cake and not so much the frosting and other additions.

Can anyone advise me what kind of recipe I'm looking for when all I want is a good moist cake with no bells and whistles? Don't particularly want a pound cake with 10 eggs and 1lb of butter. Just something easy that would satisfy a craving for cake.

BTW: not looking for chocolate. Have kind of lost my taste for it while at the same time becoming more appreciative of cinnamon.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
