This reminds me that liqueurs and spirits can often improve an otherwise bland cake (especially plain sponge layers) by being drizzled into it!

Thank you LC.

Let me find it and type it up. It may take a bit to type it out. I will get to it ASAP and post a link here when it is posted.

I very rarely bake but my "Fresh Peach Cake with Vanilla Butter Sauce" is killer in the summer.

When I made the pineapple upside down cake the other day, I had some batter left. I made just a plain cake and when it was done, I poked some holes in it and sprinkled the rest of the pineapple juice into it. I wrapped it tightly and put it in the fridge. Pirate decided to eat it without any frosting (as was my original plan). Was really surprised at how good it tasted.

I first had thought that I would use my deep 9" cake pan the next time I made the upside down cake. But I have changed my mind.

Either this amazing chocolate stout cake (though I made black icing and covered it in white chocolate stars):

Lemon-Ricotta Cheesecake. Some simple graham-cracker crust and shaved-chocolate top, but the other main ingredients were two gallons of whole milk and four lemons, which gives ~3lb of lemon ricotta. (Luckily, panty-hose come with two legs, so you can drain both gallons at the same time.)

It was that rarest-of-things: a weightless cheesecake. I made it in a big square springform pan, and the entire thing evaporated.

I have never been a big fan of graham crust. I like to try and match the flavor of the crust to the main offering.

Not exactly a cake, but this 4-layer dacquoise with hazelnuts, almonds, and espresso ganache was definitely the most work I've put into a dessert in a while. I think I got the recipe from ATK. Very pretty and very tasty.

LazyEngineer you have me just as you could spell dacquois The result looked awesome.

If I were you I would move to Utah, buy a decomped missle site, and hole up there eating dacquois and never go on the internet again.

Googled once 'how do I make bread' and believe me I am stuck with the cooking thing, even worked in a commercial kitchen, once upon a time.

I just mastered pie, I forgot cake. Let the learning curve again begin!

Cake? Seriously? The closest I've ever come to cake (so therefore my best one) was when I got fed to the teeth with rolling out a million little chocolate chip cookie. I mushed all the dough together and made a cake out of it in the cookie sheet, baked a couple minutes longer on a lower temp and had bars, rather than cake, I guess. But they were sure good.

And I found out that when you cut the bars large, it's sounds better when you say you had one bar of chocolate chip cake than 6 cookies.
