You Don’t Need Frosting For These Delicious Cakes!
These no-frosting cakes are the easiest, most delicious desserts to make for get-togethers.
It’s a sad truth that not everyone loves frosting. Some avoid it all together while others scoop it off their otherwise delicious desserts. If you’re one of these people, take heart. You’re not alone and in fact, there are some cakes that do not even need frosting to make it decadent and delicious.
Here are just a few of these delicious, frosting-free cakes:
The Basic Pound Cake
A pound cake can be deceptively simple. It may need just a few ingredients, but to create a pound cake that is silky and moist on the palate means following the steps carefully. Do this, and you’re rewarded with a cake that can compete against the most extravagantly adorned cakes in texture and flavor. Add rum into the batter before drowning it in a rum syrup will take it over the top.
Another classic cake, this butter cake uses a drizzle of glaze instead of a full coat of frosting to add swet flavors as well as pretty zigzag décor to lure unsuspecting and disbelieving dessert lovers.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
Not a fan of vanilla cakes? This is a great chocolate cake recipe that needs no frosting. It’s a decadent chocolate cake that takes its flavor and texture from lots of melted chocolate and eggs to create the tender and moist texture that’s closer to a brownie than a cake. What you do need? An appetite and ice cream.
Tres Leches Cake
While this creamy and milky cake doesn’t need frosting, it does need the sweetened milk soak that makes up the three kinds of milk that go into the recipe.
Chiffon Cake with Cheese
If you love the sweet and salty combination that you don’t normally get from desserts, you’ll love that this childhood favorite can deliver those flavors in one delicious cake. The just-right sweetness of the tender cake is offset by a generous topping of grated cheese.
Pili Nut Cake
The Bicol pili nut is the star of this nutty cake. It doesn’t need any frosting on it because the sweetness from the caramelized sugar on top is more than enough to make up for its lack of frosting. Tthe sugar and nut topping creates a wonderful crunch with every bite.
Mango-Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Need a fast and easy cake that’s not too complicated and doesn’t require many ingredients? This is the cake for you. You get the fresh flavors from the fresh fruits that trickle down to the deliciously soft and crumby base that is the cake.
Lemon Chia Cake Bars
Love fresh and tangy flavors from lemons? The strong-flavored citrus is the main flavor of these individual bars so if you love all things citrus, especially lemons, you will love the tangy yet refreshing flavor in these cake bars.
No frosting? It’s no problem when you have recipes for cakes that don’t need it to be delicious.
