Looking to make a tall layer cake, a rustic upside-down treat, or a cheesecake brimming with the taste of fall? Take the chill off the cool evenings when you bake one of these.
Fall is one of our favorite seasons. Apart from the football, the leaves changing, and the opportunity to decorate pumpkins, we appreciate that the cooler weather allows us to do one of our favorite things: bake fall cakes. There’s something special about fall cakes–an indulgent slice of rich sweet potato pound cake with a cup of hot coffee is a perfect afternoon in the making. Fall baking also lets us use some of our favorite ingredients, whether it’s apples in a glorious stack cake or pumpkin in an almost-too-pretty-to-eat cheesecake. We’ve rounded up some of our all-time favorite fall cakes for you to bake this autumn. These fall cakes are all party-perfect, but don’t hesitate to whip one up to keep a fall dessert on hand for after-school snacks and casual drop ins. With fall cakes this good, there’s no excuse not to try out at least a few of these recipes.
