So when I saw this title – Piece of Cake – I thought it meant a slice of cake. But these are some great recipes that are easy i.e. “a piece of cake”! They are delicious one bowl cake recipes. This is perfect for Valentine’s Day. You can easily make them with the kids – or if you are not a fancy cook – whip something up for your sweetie.
This book is hard cover but spiral bound so it easily lays flat – again with the easy theme. It also has a wealth of info about prep work. As you may know, baking can be very difficult if you don’t know the tricks of the trade. The Sour Cream Chocolate Cake is to die for by the way – but there are some great things in here – they even have storage tips for after you bake!
About the Book
One-bowl cakes are the forgotten gems in the world of home baking — so we’re bringing them back
Many home bakers believe there are only two options for making cakes at home: 1) commercial cake mixes, or 2) complicated, multi-step recipes developed by professional chefs. But there’s another way: one-bowl cakes are all-natural, quick and easy to prepare. They’re as much about what isn’t required as what is:
• you don’t need multiple bowls
• you will not need to cream the fat (e.g., butter,shortening or oil) with the sugar
• you will not need to separate the eggs
• you will not need to alternately add ingredients while simultaneously mixing
• you will not need to use cake flour or any other fancy flour
• you will not need to sift flour
• you do not need to own or use a heavy-duty stand mixer
You’ll be able to create a multitude of cakes everyone loves to eat, from classic layer cakes and Bundt cakes to old-fashioned cakes and modern
innovations. The ever-popular lay-flat concealed wire-o hardcover binding, with full color throughout, makes this book even more convenient.
In addition to the cake recipes, there are over 50 recipes for icings, glazes, syrups and sauces.
You can buy this book online for about $30.
