Everyone should and must try this book. I have made several recipes from this book and my goodness. These recipes are delicious. Especially the Old Fachioned Butter Coffee Cake. There's also the Fresh Fruit cakes like the Cranberry- Apple Torte; Loaf Cakes like Date Nut Loaf; Slicig cakes such as Valencia Rum Cake; Special Occasion cakes like the one bowl Carrot Cake and Hawaiian Coconut Coffee Cake and so many more. The recipes in here are rich, moist and very enjoyable. Also, they are very easy to follow. Cerri Hadda has done a great job in compiling edible recipes to share with everyone. Note: The recipes here are HIGHLY tempting to make all of the time, since they are so easy to make once you get the flow of how quickly they are put together. This is a good thing and a not so good thing when you are watching your diet. But a piece now and then will not hurt. No need to buy other coffee cake books. This is it... ENJOY!
