Upside-Down Honey Nectarine Cake

upside down honey nectarine cake

The Upside-Down Honey Nectarine Cake is a seasonal summer dessert that can be served as the Father’s Day Cake idea. The cake highlights fresh stone fruits.

What makes this cake a perfect treat for your Dad is the unique presentation of nectarines layered on the bottom of the pan and baked directly into the cake. This presentation creates a beautiful caramelized fruit-layered cake.

During baking, the honey syrup will soak into the fruit and cake creating intense fruity flavors. Since nectarines are at their peak in summer, this can be your first go-to dessert for summer days.

Here is a tip: toss the sliced fruits in honey and lemon juice before assembling the cake. This will prevent browning and enhance the sweet-tart flavors. You can serve this cake on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It can also be paired with grilled chicken or BBQ potluck meals in summer.

Gluten-Free Lemon Syrup Cake

Gluten-Free Lemon Syrup Cake

Heat the oven to 170C/150C. You should use a big bowl to combine the almond and corn flour with the sugar and coconut, flour, sesame seeds, nutmeg, and baking powder. You’ll need 60ml (1/4 cup) of water and 60ml (1/4 cup) coconut oil to make this dish. Indent the pan with the prepared mixture. Create a smooth surface.

Baking time should be 40-45 minutes, depending on the thickness of the cake. Allow cooling in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack positioned over a baking sheet. A small saucepan filled with 80 ml (1.3 cups) of water, sugar, and lemon juice is all you need to make the syrup. Warm the syrup and then pour it over the cake. Use lime pearls and flower petals if you choose. If desired, top with coconut yogurt.

Pop Tart Cake With Strawberry

Pop Tart Cake With Strawberry

Firstly heat the oven to 160C/140C fan-forced. In a large bowl, whisk together 250 grams of butter and 275 grams (1 3/4 cups) of icing sugar until light and fluffy using an electric mixer. Beat thoroughly after each addition of the eggs, one at a time. Arrange 4 Pop-Tart slices on top. Make two more layers of batter and Pop-Tart pieces using the remaining batter.

 A skewer inserted in the center should come clean after baking for 1 hour and 20 minutes. In a separate dish, combine the remaining 150g (1 cup) of icing sugar, 2 tsp of boiling water, and 25g of butter. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Sprinkle the frosting on top of the dessert. Add raspberries, both fresh and freeze-dried, as well as mint leaves to the top.


Lemon Frosted Butter Cake

Lemon Frosted Butter Cake

This lemon-frosted butter cake is enough to help you improve your baking skills. The recipe yields a mild sweet, moist cake with a lemon frosting. What makes this lemon cake special is its simplicity in making as it takes a few ingredients – butter, eggs, lemon and eggs – to make this cake.

The frosting provides the richness of butter and the brightness of lemon zest. This lemon frosted butter cake is best served as a dessert for a summer potluck lunch as its fresh citrus will provide a refreshing flavor and won’t feel heavy after a hot meal.

I recommend using room-temperature butter and fresh eggs so that the cake has a tender crumb. Add lemon zest generously in both cake and frosting for optimal lemon flavor.

Here is a special tip: serve the cake with a cup of tea or coffee for a better flavor profile. The cake can also accompany dishes with cream or seafood like Sushi, Greek Pasta Salad, or Smoked Salmon and roasted veggies. You can also make it as a summer dessert, after preparing a lazy summer dinner.


Orange and Almond Syrup Cake

Orange and Almond Syrup Cake

Add butter to a silicone loaf pan that is 7 inches deep and 8 inches wide. Pour the mixture into the pan you’ve just prepared for 6 to 7 minutes on HIGH (100 percent) or until the top feels stiff.

Prepare the orange syrup in the meantime: Over medium heat, bring the orange juice, sugar, and 2 tablespoons of cold water to a boil. Stirring periodically, bring to a simmer. 2 minutes of simmering time is plenty. You should drizzle half of the syrup over the cake. Warm cake is served with a dab of whipped cream and any residual syrup.


Fig and Date Cake

Fig and Date Cake

Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Put butter and ordinary flour in a bundt or fluted ring cake pan. Serve this dish over medium-low heat after it has simmered for an hour or so by adding the figs and dates to a medium saucepan. Stir in the eggs one at a time, being sure to incorporate each one well.

Create a smooth surface. If a spear comes out clean after 45 minutes, the cake is done baking. Meanwhile, simmer the sugar, butter, and cream in a medium pot until the butterscotch flavor comes through. For 2 minutes or until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves, stirring often. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar and salt until well-combined. Pour the butterscotch frosting over the cooled cake. Serve by slicing into wedges.


Chocolate Cakes

Chocolate Cake

Easy Chocolate Cake

You should preheat the oven to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix flour, baking soda, and cocoa powder into a large pan. Add the sugar. Mix the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla in a jug. In the center of the flour mixture, make a well. You should pour in a mixture of buttermilk and cream. It should take around 40 to 45 minutes, or until the center comes clean, to bake.

To create chocolate icing, add icing sugar and cocoa powder to a bowl and mix. Add 1 tbsp. of hot water and 1 tbsp. of butter. Make sure you’re stirring until everything is smooth. Decorate with frosting. Finish off with blueberries. Wait for the frosting to harden completely. Cut and serve.


Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

You should preheat the oven at 180C/160C fan-forced. Line a 20cm springform pan with baking paper and grease the bottom. The chocolate mixture should be added and whisked in until well combined. Whisk in the hazelnut flour and baking powder just until incorporated.

Indent the pan with the prepared mixture. 45 minutes or until the mixture is done. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool entirely after cooling the pan for 15 minutes. Toss maca powder on top of the dish if you’d like.

Chocolate Mud Cake

Chocolate Mud Cake

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Over low heat, combine the sugar, cocoa, butter, and coffee in a big pot. For 4 minutes, whisk the mixture with a metal spoon to melt the chocolate and make it smooth. Set away for a while.

Then, whisk together the baking soda and salt until smooth, and add the almond meal. Whisk together the sour cream, egg, and vanilla extract in a separate dish. Stir in the sour cream and flour mixes in batches until just mixed, then add the chocolate mixture back in. Bake in a preheated oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes. If you want, you may top with whipped cream and more chocolate powder.


Black Forest Chocolate Torte

Black Forest Chocolate Torte

A classic German chocolate cake filled with layers of chocolate sponge cake, whipped cream, and cherries. This cake is so special as it has a unique combination of flavors, especially cherries and chocolate. You are free to add flavors of your preference.

This dark chocolate tort is moist and dense which provides a perfect backdrop for tart cherries. The tort is best for birthdays, or holidays when you plan to impress guests with a decadent dessert.

I recommend adding sour cherries packed in syrup for a high fruity flavor that will complement the rich chocolate and creamy texture. For the best flavors, try adding high-quality dark chocolate to the cake batter. And if you soak the cake layers in cherry liqueur before assembling, the flavor will be doubled.

Serve this cake with a cup of strong black coffee to complement the chocolate flavors. The cake also works well as a dessert for a heavy meal like pot roast or Italian lasagna.


Melt and Mix Chocolate Cake With Ganache Icing

Melt and Mix Chocolate Cake With Ganache Icing

Preheat the oven to 180C. You should use a medium-low-heat pot to combine the sugar, milk, butter, cocoa powder, and bicarbonate of soda. When the butter has melted and the mixture is smooth, cook for another 5 minutes. Whisk together the flour and almond meal. Whisk in the egg until well combined.

Meanwhile, combine the chocolate, sour cream, and butter in a heatproof dish and stir until smooth. Stir for 5 minutes, or until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth, in a pot of boiling water. You should spread the ganache frosting uniformly over the cake’s surface. Make serving portions out of the slices.

Pear and Chocolate Cake – Gluten-Free

Gluten Free Pear and Chocolate Cake

Preheat the oven to 180C.  Beat some egg yolks, honey, and vanilla in a bowl with an electric mixer for 7 minutes. Add oil in a slow, steady stream while using a mixer set to medium-low speed until well incorporated. Set aside hazelnut meal, coconut meal, cacao butter, and buckwheat flour.

Beat the egg whites in a bowl & combine the yolk combination with half of the hazelnut mixture and one-half of the egg white. Pour half the batter into the pan and bake it for about 30 minutes. Finish with the last pears, arranged in a concentric circle on top of the dish. Sprinkle the hazelnuts and the leftover chocolate on top of the dough.


Specialty Cakes

Coconut and Lime Cake

Coconut and Lime Cake

Preheat the oven to 180C. In a large bowl, combine the flour, coconut, and sugar. Mix butter, eggs, and coconut milk in a small bowl. Add the flour mixture to the yeast. Mix thoroughly. If a spear comes out clean after 45 minutes, the cake is done baking.

Set aside for 5 minutes in the pan. To finish cooling, transfer to a wire rack. Put the icing sugar in a bowl and add the lime juice. Make a runny paste by mixing in just enough lime juice. Pour on top of the cake after it has cooled.


Madeira Cake

Madeira cake

Bake at 180C/160C for about 30 minutes. Beat the butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Make a fluffy cake by combining sugar, orange rind, and eggs. Be sure to beat each egg well before adding the next. Sprinkle half of the flour mixture on top. Fold until the mixture is smooth. Put in half a quart of milk. Fold until the mixture is smooth.

Add more flour and milk as necessary. Pour the mixture into the pan, being sure to distribute it—a smooth surface evenly. A skewer inserted in the center should come clean after baking for 45-50 minutes. Ten minutes in the pan. Stack on a wire rack with the top side facing up. Serve at room temperature or hotter if desired.


Coffee Cake

Coffee Cake

Bake at 180°C/160°C for 30 minutes. Brew a cup of coffee using boiling water. Stir until all the coffee has been absorbed into the mixture. Over the butter mixture, sift the flour. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into the pan, being sure to distribute it—a smooth surface evenly.

Take out of the oven after 45 minutes and cool for 10 minutes before slicing into it.  Put the coffee and boiling water in a small heatproof dish and mix well. Stir until all the coffee has been absorbed into the mixture. Add the butter and the coffee mixture. When finished, put the frosting all over the cake. Make a topping out of walnuts. Serve.


Battenberg Cake

Battenberg Cake

Preheat the oven to 180C/160C. Set aside 1 bowl and add the yellow food coloring to it. Spread half of the mixture on one side of it. Take the cake out of the oven and allow it to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing it. Five minutes in the pan. Cakes should be trimmed at the tops and sides (see Notes). Using a serrated knife, cut each cake in half along its long axis to make two cubes.

Spread a thin coating of jam and frosting on the edges of the cakes before serving. Spread the rest of the frosting on the cake. Make marzipan supple by kneading it with icing sugar. Make a 3mm-thick rectangle out of the sheet of paper. Roll and unroll marzipan to cover the cake in a circular motion. Seal with a tuck beneath. To stiffen up, stand for an hour.


Reindeer Cake

Reindeer Cake

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large basin. Add the butter and continue to mix until crumbly. Beat in the egg whites one at a time, thoroughly mixing them in between each addition. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes until light and fluffy, gradually adding 1/4 cup milk and extracts. Beat in the remaining milk gradually. Add jimmies one at a time, folding them in with a spatula.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes clean. Melt chocolate and cream in a microwave until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds for the buttercream. Whisk the egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt in a heatproof bowl of a stand mixer until well combined. Melt chocolate and vanilla extract, then add a few tablespoons of butter at a time, beating on medium-low speed until the mixture is smooth.

Sift cocoa into the batter as you go along. Frost the cake from top to bottom and sides to top. Decorate with the rest of the buttercream. Decorate to your liking. Put it in the fridge to keep it fresh.


Coca-Cola Cake

Coca-Cola Cake

People sometimes consider this a regular chocolate cake but trust me, adding Coca-Cola to it makes it hot and different. When you add Coca-Cola, the cake becomes super light, fluffy, and moist. It also has a fizzy and unique flavor. Have a Coca-Cola fan as a dad! Bake this for him for the upcoming Father’s Day.
