Tiramisu Cake

Tiramisu Cake by Yummy Calories

This tiramisu cake uses sponge cake instead of the traditional Italian ladyfingers. For ease, I have used a microwave sponge cake. It is one of my most popular recipes, particularly for my parents. Their friends love it too and they often talk about how I must make it for them again. But I've been reluctant … Continue reading Tiramisu Cake

Nutty orange carrot cake (370 calories per serve)

Seven years ago, I made this nutty orange carrot cake. It was my seventh post on this website and until then, carrot cakes were a very rare feature of my diet.

Strawberry yoghurt cake (379 calories per serve)

I made my first yoghurt cake a while ago and got hooked. It's just brings out a light and fluffy taste to it. I have since started experimenting with various different fruits and berries into yoghurt cakes. We went to a strawberry farm last week and picked a lot of strawberries. My daughter was absolutely … Continue reading Strawberry yoghurt cake (379 calories per serve)

Peanut butter and cookie dough cake (628 calories per serve)

This is devilishly good but so incredibly rich that you couldn't (or shouldn't) eat too much in one go. I could fall asleep into a food coma after this but my husband absolutely loved it. It's really great to snack on and grab a piece or chunk of at 3pm in the afternoon. Now ... having … Continue reading Peanut butter and cookie dough cake (628 calories per serve)

Chocolate sponge cake with cherries and cream (366 calories per serve)

I don't usually crave cake but when I do, I try to scout out interest from my girlfriends to see if I can "share" the calories around. It's really hard to bake a cake for one so I prefer having a whole group of us. The more the merrier (for my waistline). Today's cake of the day is a chocolate sponge cake with cherries and cream.

Mom’s fluffy chocolate loaf cake (308 calories per serve)

Even after living in Australia for 15 years, I still call her 'mom' in the American way. She makes this cake to bring to church to share as morning tea refreshments after the service.

‘Fruit basket’ chocolate ganache cake (418 calories per serve)

When I showed my mum this cake, she said it looked like a 'fruit basket' so that's what I'm calling it now. The picture shows a double-layer variation with buttercream icing in the middle but this recipe is for a single-layer cake. Serves 12 Prep time 45 mins Cook time 30 mins Ingredients 180g butter, softened and cubed … Continue reading ‘Fruit basket’ chocolate ganache cake (418 calories per serve)
