Overview

The first paperback edition of a classic cake collection from Maida Heatter, James Beard Lifetime Hall of Fame member, called “the Queen of Cake†by Saveur magazine.

Cakes are experiencing a renaissance, and the revival wouldn't be complete without Maida Heatter's Cakes, available for the first time in paperback. First published in 1997, Maida Heatter's Cakes is a "best of" compilation of 175 of Maida's classic, most beloved cake recipes originally published in her nine baking books. From an ever-so-lighter take on her legendary Queen Mother's Cake, Maida's self-proclaimed favorite, to cakes, sticky buns, homemade doughnuts, cheesecakes, muffins, ice creams, and sauces, Maida Heatter's Cakes offers foolproof recipes for novice and experienced bakers alike presented alongside charming two-color, line-drawn illustrated interiors.

I have many baking books but none come close to this book. Well, maybe Nigella Lawson's Domestic Goddess. I've tried a few cakes from it and all were loved by my colleagues. Maida's instructions are clear and you can imagine her talking you through them.

These recipes will take you back to your mother's and grandmother's kitchen. I could not stop trying each recipe. Each cake was better than the last.
