The Amish take the cake, or should we say, they bake the cake. Cakes are a super easy dessert perfectly suited to a busy Amish home that is usually full of children. Nothing is easy than a simple “stir and bake” recipe. Most cakes are compromised of the basic building blocks of baking: eggs, flour, and butter. Once you have those, you can branch out with flavors, leavenings, frostings, and so on.
Massive sheet cakes can feed an army of people, or a small round cake is perfect for a small birthday celebration. There are strawberry, spice, vanilla, chocolate, and coffeecakes. There are also nut cakes and crumb cakes, and apple cakes. There’s even a delicious, Old-Fashioned Pear Cake, and the list can go on and on for inventive Amish bakers. So peruse our authentic collection of Amish cake recipes and enjoy!
