4 Delicious And Easy Cake Recipe Ideas To MakeNot all cake recipes are created equal, and in fact, some of them are much more difficult to pull off than others. If you're looking for something easy, but still delicious then look no further. This list of premium quality cakes will take you no time at all to whip up, and some of them don't even require frosting. Most cakes bake at 350 degrees F, and cake anywhere from 30 - 60 minutes to cook.

1.) Applesauce Cake Recipe

If you have leftover applesauce at home, or you just want something different from the usual coffee and crumb cake options, try making an applesauce cake. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and mix together 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cardamom, 2 sticks butter, 2 cups brown sugar, 1/4 cup honey, 2 eggs, and 2 cups applesauce. Bake in the oven for an hour and then when cool, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and enjoy.

2.) Cherry And Almond Cake

For easy cake recipes that are best served hot, a cherry almond cake is top notch! It is traditionally made in a greased pie pan rather than a cake pan, and is baked at 350 degrees F. Mix together 8 tablespoons of butter, 1 cup of flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3/4 cup sugar, 3 eggs, and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Pour into pie pan and top with one 12 ounce bag of frozen cherries that have been thawed, and 1/2 cup diced almonds. Bake, and enjoy with whipped cream or ice cream.

3.) Simple Chocolate Cake

Chocolate is a fan favorite for everybody, but that doesn't mean that it has to be difficult. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and get ready for one of the many easy cake recipes that you will be using for years to come. Grease and flour a 9 inch round cake pan, and mix together in a bowl 3/4 cup of butter, 3/4 cup of cocoa, 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup sugar, 3 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 cup of sour cream. Bake for 35 minutes, and allow to cool before drizzling with melted chocolate and sprinkling with about one teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. The sour cream in this recipe makes for a truly moist cake, and the melted chocolate on top means that you don't need frosting, but you could swap it out for frosting instead.

4.) Breton Butter Cake

Of all the easy cake recipes you could possibly seek out, this is one of the easiest, and with the fewest ingredients. It goes great with tea or coffee, and isn't too sweet, which makes it the perfect finish to any heavy meal. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and cream together 1 cup of butter with 1 cup of sugar and beat in 6 large egg yolks and one whole egg and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Then mix in 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake for 50 minutes, cool, and top with any type of fresh berry or berry compote.
