6 Delicious Cake Recipes for Autumn
If you’re looking for inspiration for some Autumn cake recipes then look no further! As soon as the weather turns chilly I get a sudden urge to fire up the mixer and whip up some cake batter. Maybe it’s the fact the Great British Bake Off is on our screens again? Maybe it’s my natural instinct to store some extra food energy and create some extra layers for the colder months? Whatever, all I know is that I just want, no, need to be opening the oven door to a fresh cake at least once a week.
1. Mascarpone and plum breakfast cake
This is such a gorgeous breakfast cake. Not overly sweet, its substantial texture makes it a perfectly dunkable match to your morning brew.
2. Salted caramel apple and ginger upside-down cake
Another orchard fruit topped cake, this time with the addition of caramel. And so very pretty.
3. Apple Bundt Cake
Originally made this for the Christmas season but it’s just as well matched in Autumn! There is something so magical about the look of a bundt cake. I made this one in a beautiful old pan I picked up at a vintage fair years ago!
4. Coffee Cake
This one is not strictly an Autumn cake recipe but when the days turn short and the nights grow cold, this punchy coffee cake is sure to give you an energy boost!
5. Carrot Cake
The wonderful people at our legendary local cake shop Cakes + Co were kind enough to share their amazing carrot cake recipe with us a couple of years ago. Carrot cake is good any time of year, but maybe you even have a few extra home-grown carrots that need using?
6. Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Roll
The new cake on the blog. A beautiful spiced sponge filled with vanilla cream cheese frosting. Nothing says autumn quite like a pumpkin.
And there you have it! 6 Delicious Cake Recipes for Autumn. Which one takes your fancy? The coffee cake is calling to me at the moment but I think that’s because of a lack of sleep…
