One-Layer Cakes for Last-Minute Thanksgiving Dessert

Cardamom Flourless Chocolate Cake

6. Cardamom Flourless Chocolate Cake

The beauty of this cake is the crackled top, which, combined with the cardamom-scented cake, yields the perfect mix of crispy, soft, chocolatey goodness in a single bite. 

Pear Honey Bundt Cake

7. Pear Honey Rosemary Bundt Cake 

We love herbs in sweet baked goods. The honey and rosemary in this cake impart a delicious earthiness in this Pear Honey Rosemary Bundt Cake.

Mexican Chocolate Bundt

8. Mexican Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake 

These ringed cakes get their name from the molded pans they’re baked in and can take practically any form and flavor—there’s no official Bundt recipe. Dive into our Mexican Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake. Ancho chile gives this chocolate cake a rich heat. Like more spice? Add an extra teaspoon of the ground chile pepper.

9. Upside-Down Apple Crisp Cake 

This cake turns up the volume on two old-school classics. We combined the flavor and crunch of apple crisp with the gorgeous presentation of upside-down cake, plus added a hearty dose of caramel for good measure. You’re welcome.

Orange Spice Sheet Cake

10. Orange Spice Sheet Cake 

The beloved flavors of orange cream and spice cake collide in this one-layer Orange Spice Sheet Cake delight. Packing a punch of fresh citrus flavor and a hint of warm spice, it will have your guests running back for seconds.


11. French Apple-Almond Cake 

From the dense, custardy bottom to the crisp top layer, almond flour amplifies the textures that are characteristic of this classic French Apple-Almond Cake. Additional egg yolks in the cake’s base also boost its custard-like consistency.

12. Texas Sheet Cake 

The reigning king of all sheet cakes, this easy Texas Sheet Cake is a chocoholic’s dream. A rich, fudgy cake cloaked in warm chocolate frosting with a sprinkling of pecans for added crunch? Yes, please!
