    A lemon chiffon meringue cake with layers of moist cake, mascarpone and a browned puff of whipped egg white on top.

  • Buttermilk Spice Cake at Absinthe Brasserie & Bar in San Francisco, CA

    A homey rich square like Grandma might have made (if she was a fabulous baker).

  • Rum Bundt Cake at Brick & Bottle in Corte Madera, CA

    A rum-soaked bundt cake, moistened with pudding, with a layer of pecans, caramel and a hefty scoop of rum raisin ice cream.

  • Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake at Zin Restaurant & Wine Bar in Healdsburg, CA

    It's a muffin-size round of gooeyness, set in a rich pool of caramel and capped with a tangy dollop of whipped creme fraiche. It feels like the perfect fall dessert.
