By far, the best and most complete soul food dessert book I've ever seen.
All of her "Ainties, Uncles and Cudn's" brought those stories to life.
I will be getting the hardcover version of this book as well as purchasing it for gift giving! Update: Made the "MY-MY'S" cake and it was delicious! Moist, tasty, makes a great birthday cake. The frosting given with the cake was also unique and tasty, albeit, labor intensive as some of the recipes are, but I think that's what gives the book its charm. (After all, they lacked modern appliances). I also tried the recipe with my own version of vanilla frosting, umm good! I've made this cake 3x in less than a month.
Instead of using regular rum, I used hazelnut liquer and it turned out much better than I could have expected. I also tweaked the measurements here and there because my family loves a "wet" bread pudding.
So needlesstosay, I've been asked to make this for Thanksgiving as the main dessert! I can't wait to try the rest of the recipes. If they are any where close to this one, I'm sure they will all taste amazing!!
I hate it because I can literally see my waistline expand when I crack it open....what a sweet conundrum to be in! Have fun with it!
P.S. This is the one you'll want to set out when company's coming!
