You know, the one that makes you look like an expert baker to coworkers and friends, the recipe you've given out so many times you lost count, the one you've become famous for or maybe just the one your mom used to make.
Well, put them here!
I'll go first:

Kathy's Crazy Mom's Yummy Apple Cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
4 cups of chopped apples (larger chunks ok)
2 cups of vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Blend above ingredients, set aside.

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
For an extra yummy flavor, I always add some cardamom, fresh grated nutmeg, a dash of ginger and a pinch of allspice.
Blend together and add to apple mixture

Pour into ungreased 9 X 13 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

I like to top it off with some brown sugar icing, this is optional, some fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream is also good.

Brown Sugar Icing
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 T. butter
1 c. confectioner's sugar
2 T. Milk (can substitute almond milk)
1 t. vanilla extract

Combine sugar, milk and butter in saucepan; stir over medium heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, whisk in vanilla and confectioner's sugar (more, if too thin).

Pour over slightly cooled cake.
Devour with glee!

I love baking, mainly because I suck at cooking. My favourite cake recipe is actually a brownie recipe but I only ever make it as a cake. It's vegan, so it's great for anyone who's allergic to milk and/or eggs. And vegans of course...

1    cup all-purpose flour 
1    cup white sugar 
1/2    cup cocoa 
1    teaspoon baking soda 
1    teaspoon baking powder 
1/2    teaspoon salt 
1/3    cup canola oil (or any vegetable oil) 
1    tablespoon white vinegar 
1    teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
1    cup soy milk

1.  Preheat oven to 170C degrees.
2.  Prepare an 8-inch-square cake pan by spraying with non-stick spray or greasing.
3.  In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
4.  Add all liquid ingredients and combine with whisk just until blended.
5.  Pour into prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

And this is my favourite chocolate icing recipe:

1 cup vegan margarine
4 cups icing sugar
2 tablespoon vanilla
4 tablespoon soymilk
1/2 cup cocoa powder ( or more)
dash of salt

Margarine should be at room temperature when being placed in bowl. Blend until mushy, and then add icing sugar, salt, vanilla, chocolate and soymilk.
You can add in more soymilk to make it a bit smoother but not too much. Spread on cake and enjoy.

    * 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
    * 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
    * 2 1/2 cups white sugar
    * 25 large marshmallows
    * 1 (14 ounce) package flaked coconut
    * 1/2 cup butter
    * 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    * 1 cup sliced almonds, toasted


   1. Mix cake mix and bake as directed for one 9x13 inch cake.
   2. In a saucepan combine 1/2 of the evaporated milk, and 1-1/2 cups of the sugar. Bring mixture to a rapid    boil. Quickly remove from the heat and add marshmallows. Stir until melted. Stir in coconut. Pour mixture over the top of the baked cake.
   3. In a saucepan combine the remaining sugar and the remaining evaporated milk. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add butter and chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Mix in toasted almonds. Pour mixture over the top of the coconut topped cake. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Cake tastes best if baked the day before.
