Easy Cake Recipes from Scratch

What a wonderful surprise when I saw this easy cake recipe in the Wisconsin State Journal. The recipe by Judy Esser dates back to 1978 so some of the techniques listed are from "the good old days." Make proper adjustments.


6 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup scalded milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9x13 inch pan.

Beat eggs five minutes or until thick. Gradually add sugar and beat for two or three minutes. Slowly add flour, baking powder and salt. Add scalded milk while it is still hot. Add vanilla.

Pour into prepared cake pan and bake for 38 minutes. Cool one hour before putting creamed filling in.

Cream Filling
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 can (5-1/3 oz) evaporated milk
2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients and beat with rotary beaters for 30 minutes or until it is thickened. Cut cake into squares and then horizontally in half. Spread creamed filling between the top and bottom halves of each square. Yield: 24 servings.

    Homemade Black Forest Cake made with my Black Magic Cake recipe

    This easy cake recipe looks gorgeous and really is easy to put together.  The cake is my Black Magic cake recipe  - I know you will enjoy it as much as we do.


    Black Magic Cake
    1-3/4 cups flour
    2 cups white sugar
    3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    2 eggs
    1 cup strong brewed coffee
    1 cup buttermilk
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract


    2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) of pitted tart cherries
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 cups cornstarch
    3 TBS cherry brandy (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)

    Whipped Cream

    3 cups heavy whipping cream
    1/3 cup powdered sugar

    PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 inch cake pans, or one 9x13 inch pan.

    Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Add the eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.

    Beat for two minutes on medium (batter will be thin). Pour into prepared pans and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes and then remove pans and finish cooling on a wire rack. 

    Meanwhile, for filling, drain cherries, reserving 1/2 cup juice. In a small saucepan, whisk sugar, cornstarch and reserved juice; add cherries. Cook and stir over low heat 10-12 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat; stir in brandy. Cool completely.

    In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form.

    Using a long serrated knife, cut each cake horizontally in half. Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Top with 1-1/2 cups whipped cream. Spread 3/4 cup filling to within 1 in. of edge. Repeat twice.

    Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining whipped cream, reserving some to pipe decorations, if desired. Spoon remaining filling onto top of cake. Refrigerate until serving.

    Garnish with shaved chocolate pressed into the sides and on top. Maraschino cherries adorn it.
