This Banana Crumb Cake is a stepped up version of the best banana bread you've ever had! It's full of banana flavor, and the pecan crumb topping puts it over the top. It's also dairy free. Banana breads and cakes and desserts of all sorts rank among my personal favorites, and they also dominate in my most popular posts on the site (Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread & Almond Banana Bread are both favorites!!). I love the sweetness and bold flavor that ripe bananas bring to a baked good, and it’s seriously hard to make a dry banana bread or cake.

I, personally, am a huge fan of chocolate and banana, but for this banana crumb cake recipe, I resisted the urge to add chocolate and kept it pure, with the only adornment being the gorgeous crumbles on top. I was glad I opted for no chocolate – this cake allows the banana flavor to really shine. [Read more…]

Happy New Year, internet friends! Can you believe it’s 2015? I hope the first few days of the New Year have been treating you right.

Unfortunately, my first few days of the year I’ve been stuck on the couch trying to fight off a monster of a cold/flu combo. Not fun.

This Ultimate Snickers Cake is six-layers of chocolate cake with peanut caramel filling and peanut butter cream cheese frosting, dripping with chocolate ganache and caramel sauce. It tastes just like a Snickers bar!This cake is not for the light of heart. It’s big, it’s messy, it has a lot of (pretty easy) steps, and it takes a little while. BUT: it tastes just like a Snicker’s bar, and it’s worth every second of effort that you put into it.

I don’t wanna scare you guys, it’s not a hard cake…but the recipe does look a little scary and daunting down there. Yeah, it’s a lot of steps, but the actual steps aren’t too hard, and I promise, this cake is forgiving! And every piece of it tastes so delicious, there’s no way you can go wrong. [Read more…]

These Pumpkin Carrot Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting are a sweet fall flavored twist on your favorite veggie cake! They're super moist and tender thanks to the pumpkin and carrot, and the cinnamon makes the cream cheese frosting taste just like fall. These past couple of days have realllyyy felt like fall. As in, rain has not stopped pouring for more than a few minutes, leaves are all over the ground, school is in serious high-stress mode, and all I want to do is bake with pumpkin, cinnamon, and apples. Good thing, because today’s recipe covers 2 of those ingredients!

I’m seriously an addict for all things fall-scented, and have been constantly burning a candle this fall. I’m a major candle addict, and have one burning pretty much always in my room. There’s just something so comforting about walking into a room that smells delicious! [Read more…]

Happy October! Now that’s officially pumpkin month, I had to share a pumpkin recipe – one that’s loaded with spices and warmth and goodness and pecans and LOTS of crumbles. This pumpkin crumb cake does just that ^^.

Also, when I first made this, I called it a coffee cake. Then I thought, well that has a whole lot of crumbs…maybe it’s a crumb cake. Then I realized I had absolutely nooo idea what the difference between a crumb cake and a coffee cake was. So, I asked Google, and found some answers. [Read more…]

This Paleo Banana Blueberry Swirl Cake has a blueberry compote swirled throughout, for a moist and tender cake that's also gluten free and Paleo!Is it a bread? Is it a cake?

Awesome, huh?

This cake is barely sweetened at all, but lacks no sweetness thanks to the bananas and blueberries. It’s also incredibly moist and tender. It’s totally Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free. It’s also beautiful! Look at those swirls! [Read more…]

This is my 200th Bakerita post!!!!

I literally didn’t realize it until just now when I noticed “199” under published. It’s so crazy to think that I’ve been doing this so long, and that I’ve baked, written, photographed, and posted 200 different things on here! It sort of seems like a ton and not even that many all at the same time, but I know I’m going to keep on posting for a while :)

So to celebrate 200, I just so happen to be sharing a cake! My uncle’s birthday cake, actually, which is a delicious, chocolatey, amazing banana cake. I know…I sort of just shared a healthy banana cake that’s gluten free and Paleo, but this one is full of gluten (though you could totally use an AP GF flour) and I wouldn’t exactly call it healthy. But I would call it delicious. This flavor combination was requested by the birthday boy, and it was a darn delicious one! [Read more…]
