Overview

Beloved novelist Marian Keyes tackles the kitchen with a new cookbook featuring desserts that are both simple and delicious, with step-by-step instructions and stunning photography.

“To be perfectly blunt about it, my choice sometimes is: I can kill myself, or I can make a dozen cupcakes. Right so, I’ll do the cupcakes and I can kill myself tomorrow.”

In Saved by Cake, Marian Keyes gives a candid account of her recent battle with depression and her discovery that learning to bake was exactly what she needed to regain her joie de vivre. A complete novice in the kitchen, Marian decided to bake a cake for a friend. From the moment she began measuring, she realized that baking was the best way for her to get through each day.

Refreshingly honest and wickedly funny, Saved by Cake shines with Keyes’ inimitable charm and is chockfull of sound advice. Written in Marian’s signature style, her take on baking is honest, witty, extremely accessible and full of fun. Her simple and delicious recipes—from Consistently Reliable Cupcakes to Fridge-set Honeycomb Cheesecake—are guaranteed to tempt even the most jaded palate.

Editorial Reviews

Daily Mail
"...this isn’t a book with gourmet pretensions. It’s like a gossip around the kitchen table with your best friend. It’s girly, chatty, obsessed with shoes and quite camp. Just reading it is enough to cheer you up. Which is why she wrote it in the first place."
London Evening Standard
"Marian Keyes is one of the great pioneers of chicklit. Since publishing her first novel in 1995, she's sold more than 22 million books worldwide....It is a crowded field, baking books. New ones appear every week. Yet Marian Keyes's stands out for its extremity. Cake or die. We can only thank her for her clarity and admire her courage."
