For best results, bake these cakes at least a day before serving. Store, wrapped in plastic, for up to three days at room temperature, or freeze for up to three months.

Asparagus Casserole

Take this traditional southern side dish to the next level with smoky bacon, creamy bechamel, and sharp gruyere.

Hummingbird Carrot Cake

When you give carrot cake a hummingbird-inspired spin, it really takes a slice to new heights. To capture the essence of a classic Hummingbird Cake, we stirred shredded coconut and puréed pineapple into our batter and swapped butter for oil to get a rich crumb and featherweight texture. Then we coated the classic frosting with chopped pecans and topped it with a nest of candied carrots.

Whole lemons are the base of this rich, citrusy simple lemon cake batter. Precooking the fruit removes the pucker and makes for an intensely flavored cake that's a family-friendly dessert.

Triple-Citrus Bundt Cake

The "triple" in this recipe comes from citrus in the batter, citrus syrup brushed over the warm cake, and a finishing touch of citrus glaze just for fun!

Baked French Toast

Thick brioche slices soak up the batter, while sugared pecans lend a caramelized crunch to this make-ahead baked French toast recipe to feed a hungry breakfast or brunch crowd.

Rhubarb-Raspberry Cheesecake Squares

Topping cheesecake with shimmering fruit is nothing new, but we spun this one in two fresh directions: We swapped out the expected cherries for ruby-red rhubarb-raspberry gelee, and we baked the whole thing in a 9-by-13-inch pan -- perfect for serving a crowd. It begins with a traditional press-in graham-cracker crust; the layer of creamy filling bakes through quickly and evenly without the usual requisite water bath.
