What are Snack Cakes?
It’s a great question! Food & Wine describes snack cakes as:
While I don’t disagree with this traditional definition, I’m broadening the term to also include snacking “breads” that are more like cake than bread.
They’re easy, delicious, and fit the category in my mind. They may or may not have frosting, which is always an option to eliminate.

It’s probably intuitive, but to me, Anytime Snack Cakes are cakes that are completely easy to make, with simple ingredients everyone loves.
