The Most Popular Dessert the Year You Were Born

1941: Classic Pineapple Upside-Down Cake 

It’s delicious with the traditional pineapple, but try it with peaches or a combination of cranberries and orange. 

1942: Glazed Lemon Chiffon Cake 

This fluffy cake is a real treat drizzled with the sweet-tart lemon glaze. 

1943: Lemon Frosted Fruit Bars 

Inside there are tips for saving sugar, with recipes like these bars that used dried fruit and molasses to add sweetness instead. You don't even miss the sugar! 

1944: Shoofly Pie 

If you like traditional shoofly pie, the chocolate version is even better! I sometimes serve it with vanilla ice cream, but it is just as good on its own. 

1945: Moist Lazy Daisy Cake 

I guess the same holds true for me since I've won contests with this lazy daisy cake. The tasty dessert always brings back fond memories of Mama. 

1946: Carrot Sheet Cake 

We sold pieces of this to-die-for carrot cake at an art show. Before long, we sold out of all the 10 cakes we had made! 

1948: Devil’s Food Whoopie Pies 

These mini cookie cakes were one of my favorite treats while I was growing up in Pennsylvania. We called them gobs because they are gobs of fun to eat! 

1950: Homemade Chocolate Pudding 

This delightful chocolate pudding is always a treat and easy to whip up. I usually top the pudding with M&M's.
