These simple cake recipes are amazing tasting, yet simple enough for even beginners. But more experienced bakers should take a look too, because they’re delicious.

Many of these recipes use box mixes as a shortcut, because why reinvent the wheel? But even the ones that start from scratch are easy as… well, maybe easy as pie isn’t the right phrase.

And it’s not a boring list at all. You’ll find everything from no-bake icebox cakes to classic red velvet cake. Most you can make in a basic cake sheet, while a couple of them need a bundt cake pan.

Note that we also have a nice collection of cupcake recipes for your next party, and also some easy dessert recipes. And if you want something even easier, try our cookie recipes and brownie recipes.
