It’s never a bad idea to thank one of the most important people in your life, whether it’s Mother’s day, her birthday or just any other day of the year. And you don’t need any special gifts for this, only love and enough time enough to bake a cake!
An interesting recipe you can try out is wacky cake. Despite its unappetizing name, it has a rich history, originating during the times of Great Depression when eggs, butter and chocolate were hard to come by. So instead the recipe uses vegetable oil and cocoa powder. You can either skip the decoration process for a minimalistic look or spread vanilla butter frosting on top.
For the moms who take care of themselves and their figures an oatmeal cake is in order. This recipe retains all the health benefits of oats but also has a ton of flavor. With added cinnamon, nutmeg, light brown sugar and butter, this cake is the epitome of a warm blanket. Add some pecans or walnuts on top for the maximum comfort food factor.
If your mother has a sweet tooth or simply likes fruit cakes, this peach one will definitely be a winner. The prep time is short, it doesn’t have a lot of ingredients and when peaches are in season, it’s also quite cheap. But don’t forget that presentation is key – carefully add delicate peach slices, top them with powdered sugar and the best summer cake is ready to be served!
