Our interns share their best dessert bake off recipes as part of the Care.com Interview Series.



Here at Care.com, we often find that the best way to an employee's heart is through baked goods. Care.com decided to put its employees to the test by having them whip up some of their favorite recipes. To some, these recipes represented a favorite childhood memory, while others chose recipes that were simple yet delicious and were perfect for their no-fuss attitude toward baking. These tasty treats were such a hit in the office that we wanted to share them with you. Have the nanny try them out at home or get the whole family involved in creating scrumptious memories of your own.
