Hot Gingerbread Cake with Egg Sauce

Recipe by Lisa Goldberg

Hot Gingerbread Cake with Egg Sauce

Recipe contributed by Gloria Jacobson Pink. We understand why this is Gloria’s grandchildren’s favorite cake. And why they love the egg sauce almost more than the cake!

Breakfast-in-Bed Apple Cake

Recipe by Judith Rontal

Breakfast-in-Bed Apple Cake

This apple cake actually tastes better the next day, so no need to wake up early to have it ready for brunch. My favorite part about this recipe is how adaptable it is. Want to make it healthier? Swap in some whole wheat flour or use some applesauce instead of oil. You can even reduce
