1. Bacardi Rum Cake

This is the most popular cake recipe on my site. Maybe because it's a tried-and-true recipe which makes the moistest cake. It's the one cake I know of that gets better as it ages. Although, most of the time it doesn't last very long. It's also the perfect cake for mailing. The rum acts as the perfect preservative. It freezes beautifully also.

2. Basic Yellow Cake

What could be better than a chocolate cake for dessert? How about a chocolate cake that is served warm with a river of chocolate running from it. Using dark chocolate makes this recipe for Molten Lava Cakes better than any you can get in a restaurant.

This is my husband's favorite cake recipe. I think it's because he's not a big sweet eater, and the cream cheese frosting cuts down on the sweetness.

For a slightly different recipe, try this one for Raspberry Red Velvet Cake.

8. White Cake

If it's not yellow, it's white? This is a splendid recipe that only uses egg whites to keep the cake white.

It's more than the name that makes this recipe so popular. It's the combination of creaminess and easy-to-bake that does it for most.

10. German Chocolate Cake

All that coconut and toasted nuts are what make this cake taste so good. It's pretty to look at too.
