7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Gail Cooke HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 8, 2011
Format: Paperback
Being recipient of the James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame Award is just the tip of the accolades for Maida Heatter. The New York Times dubbed her the "Doyenne of Desserts, queen of cookies, sultana of sweets;" Newsweek called her the Julia Child of desserts, Gourmet magazine said all of her books (9 classic dessert cookbooks) are delicious, and so it goes. Plus, more good news - she's still baking.

First published in 1997 MAIDA HEATTER'S CAKES is now available for the first time in paperback form containing 175 of Maida's most popular recipes. Cake lovers will find everything they've ever hungered for from Plain Cakes (as if any one of Maida's cakes was ever plain) to Chocolate Cake to Layer Cakes to Fancy Cakes (the Paris-Brest on page 110 is pure bliss) to Fruitcakes and Nut Cakes, and more,

The Doyenne of Desserts also includes recipes Sweet Breads (Peanut Banana Bread on page 287 is amazing), Muffins, Cupcakes and Tassies, and Ice Cream, Sauces, and More. (We're still dreaming about Little Havana Coconut Ice Cream on page 328.)

MAIDA HEATTER'S CAKES is a must for every kitchen, a book you'll turn to again and again never tiring of the delights you find.

Enjoy!

This is more than a cake book. Maida is considered the Queen of Cakes, and rightly so. I can't wait to start baking the cakes in this book from Boston Cream Pie to fig cake. But there are also recipes for ice cream and sauces to go with them; gingerbreads, sweet breads (Georgia Pecan Bread; Date Nut Loaf, Dutch honey bread and scones); yeast cakes; and fruitcakes.

Solid recipes. This is my go-to book for old fashioned cakes that I can depend on. Maida writes in a very relatable fashion. I love her 'Cookies' book as well.
