This is a subtle cake: the coffee tempers the sweetness, and the buttery sweetness keeps it all mellow. Even if you don't make cakes, this one is a cinch. Don't be alarmed if the two sponge layers look thin when you unmold them. They are meant to be, because the cake gains a lot of height with its frosting. This cake is all about old-fashioned, homespun charm, so don't worry about how messy it looks: however the frosting goes on is fine. (Photo: Craig Lee for NYT)

I firmly believe that chocolate is always a good idea.  And the same goes for chocolate cake. So it was only a matter of time  before I shared a recipe for a Death by Chocolate Cake. But not just any  death by chocolate cake, one that is e-a-s-y. Just one layer, with a simple  buttercream and decorated by literally throwing chocolate all over the top.  Who's with me?  Are there any fellow chocoholics out there? If you need a cake that can  come together fast but still look impressive or you…

Nigella's coffee and walnut layer cake. Rose like a dream and stayed moist for days. I actually used the cake recipe to make about a dozen cappuccino cupcakes- just topped them with white chocolate frosting (lovely recipe pinned on my board) and sprinkled them with dark drinking chocolate. Heaven!

Lemon Meringue Cake: In all honesty, the origin of this cake is simply that I cannot make a go of a lemon meringue pie. I've tried, and I've tried, and it's not that I've utterly failed, but I haven't completely delighted myself. There's enough of that kind of falling short in the rest of life, without having to usher in disappointment and self-loathing in the kitchen. This, then, is the easy option.
