The official Paula Deen website lists 164 cake recipes, while the Food Network website lists 93 cake recipes from Deen. Many recipes appear on both websites. Additional cake recipes also appear in one or more of Deen's print cookbooks, such as "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible."
Deen's recipes feature a wide variety of cake styles and flavors, including pound cakes, spice cakes, coffee cakes and sponge cakes. The cakes also take many forms, such as triple layer cakes, flat cakes, deep dish cakes, roll cakes and single-serving cakes. Deen's first cookbook, "The Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook," appeared in 1998.
