Overview

DELECTABLE DESSERTS FROM THE KITCHENS OF TWO MOMS WHO KNOW WHAT FAMILIES LOVE.

There's a dessert for every family, every season, and every occasion in Delectable Desserts, a charming collection of more than 250 classic, sweet, and sugary dessert recipes, organized by month of the year.

Warm up with Apple Bread Pudding in January, welcome spring with Brandied Peach Mousse in April, perfect your pies in August, and get cozy with Ginger Cookies and Carrot-Pumpkin Cake in November. There's a sweet and seasonal delight for every family and every occasion in this charming collection of classic desserts.

Authors Wendy Louise and MaryAnn Koopmann, each with more than 30 years experience in the kitchen, reveal their absolute favorite recipes for cookies, cakes, pies, bars, and much more, along with no-fail presentation tips and bits of time-tested kitchen wisdom.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this copious collection of homemade favorites, Wisconsin moms Louise and Koopmann make good on their belief that "a good meal deserves a good dessert." Organized by month, the duo offer more than 250 ideas that take advantage of seasonal ingredients: lemon squares in August, stuffed baked apples in October, and five ideas for rhubarb (pie, cake, torte, cobbler and mousse) to get families through May. Those with little confidence or experience will get the most out of the book; many recipes call for canned fillings and boxed mixes (Cakes in a Jar" calls for just two ingredients, cake mix and canning jars). Still, those interested in making their own cannolli shells or pate choux for eclairs (here called Puff Pastry for Cream Puffs) will find faithful recipes. The focus is on family favorites that can be whipped up on a whim or a weekend; comfort food desserts like Swedish Cardamom Cookies, a simple no-bake cheesecake, and Neil's Popcorn Balls (incorporating M&Ms, peanuts, popcorn, melted marshmallows and butter) aren't likely to win any culinary prizes, but they will certainly make for warm family memories-a fine prize for any chef.

Serves 12

Ingredients:

2 cups sugar

½ cup butter, softened

2 eggs, separated

3 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, or to taste

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 recipe Buttercream Frosting (page 198)

The aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg smell so enticing while this cake is baking.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350℉. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Cream together the sugar and butter. Beat the egg yolks, and add to the creamed mixture. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt twice, and add to the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Beat the egg whites until stiff, and fold into the batter. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake for 50 minutes. Cool before frosting with Buttercream Frosting.

To Serve

    Even though I have the sample, this is a very nice recipe book! I would love to buy this! The only thing I don't like is that the list of ingredients are at the end of the directions. I would like it to be vice versa.

    The is a wonderful dessert book!

    This book is great! I was lucky enough to receive an arc for this one and the apple crisp recipe is amazing. Each month is themed for seasonal recipes, but you can also look them up the usual way. If you are a dessert lover, you will want this book for your library. Each recipe I try is better than the next.

    I am ordering several copies into my store and will share them with my customers. Wonderful and delicious!
