I love baking almost as much as I do writing. So what better way to bring the two together than this book of my favorite recipes?
Baking has often played a leading role in Eileen Goudge's best-selling novels. In Such Devoted Sisters, Annie becomes a chocolatier. In One Last Dance and Taste of Honey, Kitty sells her famous sticky buns at the Tea & Sympathy tearoom. The baked goods described so delectably in her novels inspired hundreds of fans to write to Eileen requesting the recipes, and the idea for Something Warm from the Oven was born.
Ever since she was a child, Eileen has been baking for family and friends. In her first cookbook, she presents a collection of 150 recipes for cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, puddings, breads, and more. Eileen believes that the process of baking should be just as enjoyable as devouring the results. All of her recipes are simple, honest, and uncomplicated, from easy mix-and-go muffins to more elaborate desserts like Red Velvet Cake with Mocha Frosting, just like her mother and grandmother used to make.
No matter what your weakness, you'll find plenty of recipes in Eileen's collection you won't be able to resist, from homey classics like Oatmeal Bread, Lemon Chiffon Pie, Birthday Banana Cake, and Blackberry-Rhubarb Cobbler to newer innovations such as Pumpkin Ricotta Cheesecake, Maple Cream Sandwich Cookies, Pesto Biscuits, and Kahlua Brownies.
It's time to relax and indulge. After all, who doesn't love something warm from the oven?
