Thirty-three easy cakes for casual desserts, brunches, and mid-morning or afternoon breaks -- times when you want something sweet but unfussy, without layers or frosting. Our collection includes chocolate pound cake, lemon Bundt cake, spiced carrot cake, cinnamon coffee cake, buttery apple cake, and more.
These little cakes are our new go-to dessert, for so many reasons. They're fast and easy (though they don't look it), and they're great for company or just whenever you need a chocolate fix (pretty much every afternoon). Serve them plain, or topped with a bit of ganache and a sprinkling of pistachios or (our favorite) flaky sea salt.
For a sweet, billowy dessert, try our banana cream pie recipe. This recipe for delicious banana cream pie is adapted from "Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook," and it is one of Martha's favorites because it's pure banana and pure cream.
The crust is most crisp the day it's made, but the pie without the whipped-cream topping and chocolate shavings can be made up to a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator. To cut the pie into neat slices, use a serrated knife.
