1 Easy Vanilla Cake Recipe

You can't go wrong with an easy vanilla cake recipe. The classic yellow cake with chocolate frosting is one of the easiest and easily the most delicious combination of cake and frosting that you can make. To make it even easier on newbie bakers, this recipe doesn't require a special cake pan that you will only use for cakes. A long rectangular baking pan that you can also use to make a big batch of brownies or bake cookies on will do just fine.

2 Steamed Chocolate Cake Recipes  

A classic chocolate cake does not need to be complicated nor does it need an oven. A steamed chocolate cake is just as decadent, soft, and fluffy as a cake that emerged from the oven. Not all cakes will emerge perfectly from the steamer but if there is one chocolate cake recipe you need to try before any other, this is the one.

3 Chocolate Cake With Mayonnaise Recipe 

If you're short on ingredients but craving chocolate cake, this recipe just might cure that hunger. This chocolate cake is made with no eggs and no oil. As a substitute, you can use mayonnaise. It may sound odd and very unappetizing but listen to this: mayonnaise is simply eggs and oil mixed together until it formed an emulsion. The sour notes are masked by the rich chocolate flavor. The result is actually a super dense, super chocolate cake that nobody needs to know was made with a sandwich condiment.

4 Coconut Loaf Cake Recipe 

Coconut is a common ingredient in our cooking and in our kakanin recipes, but have you ever thought about how delicious it would be to make it the star of a cake? It's absolutely delicious! The best part about this recipe is that it uses simple baking ingredients. The niyog you can get freshly grated does double duty as you can use it as a liquid and a solid ingredient. It makes gata and can replace the desiccated coconut for a more moist and delicious cake.

5 Milo Cake Recipe 

Milo is a chocolate-malt-flavored powder. It's commonly used to make a delicious chocolate drink but it's also the unique flavor of this easy cake recipe. Milo powder is notorious for absorbing moisture and becoming hard as rock instead of staying in powder form that you have to keep it in an airtight container. This same quality is what will ensure that your cake is super moist! To make it even more appetizing? A fuffy, silky, and tangy cream cheese frosting that's the perfect balance to the warm chocolate flavor of the cake.
