Our Easiest-Ever Fall Desserts

You don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen just to bake a delicious fall dessert.

Fall is a favorite time in the South to bake desserts. The days are shorter and the temperature outside becomes a bit more manageable, which means you can fire up the oven without running everyone out of the house. Along with homemade breads, bakers love to pull out their pedestal cake stands and create mile-high layer cakes. You don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen, however, in order to bake a fabulous fall dessert. With a little prep and hands-on time, the following recipes for easy fall cakes and fall pies can be in the oven in no time, most of them baking while you and your family sit down to a satisfying dinner. So what are you waiting for? Pick up some apples, pecans, and sweet potatoes from your market and start baking an easy fall dessert.
