My Favourite Cakes of 2011


Martha Stewart’s Spicy Pumpkin Cake

It’s New Year’s Eve, and what better way to celebrate than with a wonderful, homemade cake? Well, other than champagne of course! Actually, I’ve always had a penchant for a glass of champagne with a piece of cake on very special occasions, and New Year is definitely one of those.

Need some inspiration? Here are some of my favourite cake recipes from this year.


Ina Garten’s Old Fashioned Banana Cake


Devilish Peanut Butter Cake


Apple and Pecan Cake


Chocolate and Banana Bundt Cake


Apple Crumble Cake


Spiced Vanilla and Honey Cakes


Blueberry White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cake

These cakes are all relatively easy to make, and they have definitely become favourites at our house. If you haven’t tried them already, I encourage you to put them on your ‘to make’ list.

Whether you celebrate New Year’s Eve at a big party or quietly at home, with something bubbly or something warm, I wish you and yours a Happy, Prosperous and Healthy New Year full of blessings and joy.
