With little time and effort, these single-layered cakes are made using only one bowl (no electric mixers needed) and utilize ingredients likely sitting in your cupboard. They're baked in the basic pans you already own and shine with only the most modest adornments: a dusting of powdered sugar, a drizzle of glaze, a dollop of whipped cream. From Cornmeal Peach Upside-Down Cake and Sweet Potato Cinnamon Sugar Cake to Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cake and Nutty Pistachio Yogurt Cake, these humble, comforting treats couldn't be simpler to create. Yossy's rustic, elegant style combines accessible, diverse flavors in intriguing ways that make them easy for kids to join in on the baking, but special enough to serve company or bring to potlucks.
