Weekends were made for baking. It’s the perfect time to master a recipe for a sweet treat (or two!) to last you through Sunday night’s TV lineup. This time swap your usual dessert for a recipe you’ve never tried before. You’ll add something new to your repertoire – and who knows, it might become your next go-to.

Reinvent the classic Italian dessert into something for a dinner party with friends. This shareable four-layer cake feeds 10, but we won’t tell if you keep an extra piece for yourself.

Feeding a crowd? Opt for this 11-by-17-inch slab pie. Mixed nuts give the filling plenty of texture and semisweet chocolate adds some decadence.

We won’t blame you if you indulge in this citrusy cake for breakfast, dessert and a snack. It’s satisfying any time of day. Make it Friday night when you need to wind down and watch it disappear by Sunday.
