ISO Cake recipes.

I am looking for some recipes for "TNT" homemade cake. I would like a nice heavy and dense cake, filled with either bananas, apples, carrot, nuts or raisins. I can't have chocolate, so I would like any other kind. Please share your favorite recipe with me and the rest of our DC family. Thanks.

When I clicked on your link for DC, it said sorry no matches.

I will have to make the Almond Cake, I have never made anything with either Solo or Baker Almond filling. Can't wait to try it. Thanks.

JoAnn, I have a wonderful recipe that is made with walnuts and has a caramel icing. Easy, too. Made in a 9- x 13-inch pan. Just yummy as heck. I've been making it for over 40 years and everyone loves it.

Katie E, I would love to try your cake, I have never had homemade caramel icing. Is it hard to make?

No, not difficult at all. I made this cake the first time when I was 13-years-old. I'll post the recipe tomorrow. I'm not where I can get to it right now. Enjoy!

Okay, I put in a different link, but here it is again:
http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...earchid=705597

In case it doesn't work, I went to the advanced search,
typed in " TNT " , clicked on "titles only" and clicked on the "cakes" category.

This is a cake that my mom used to make when I was a kid. It is still one of my favorites.

Banana Split Cake

½ cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 eggs
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
¾ cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, well-drained
4 medium bananas, sliced (about 3 cups)
2 cups whipped cream
½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
½ cup maraschino cherries, drained and cut in half

Combine melted butter and cracker crumbs. Pat in bottom of 13x9x2-inch pan. Beat eggs on high speed of electric mixer until light, about 4 minutes. Add powdered sugar, softened butter, and vanilla. Beat 5 minutes. Spread over crumbs. Chill for 30 minutes. Spread pineapple over chilled creamed mixture. Arrange bananas over pineapple. Cover with whipped cream. Sprinkle with nuts. Cover, refrigerate 6 hours or overnight. Garnish with cherries. Makes 12 servings.

This is my simple vanilla cake recipe. It's very rich and moist and can be topped with any frosting.

2 sticks butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar with electric mixer/stand up mixer, add vanilla and eggs. Sift flour and other dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Combine 1/3 part of flour mixture in with the creamed butter mixture alternating with 1/3 part milk while mixing the batter. DO NOT OVERMIX. Pour into two 9" round prepared (greased) pans and bake for 25 minutes. Cool and frost with your favorite frosting.
