    Some hits and some misses. Chocolate cupped cakes are wonderful, but chocolate bread pudding is overly rich and gooey. Good book, but you can't count on loving everything.

      This recipe looks insanely long, I know. But it isn’t long, it is just thorough. The cake comes together pretty easily.

Publishers Text

A city rich in food diversity, New Orleans is as much a city of banana cream pie as it is crawfish boil. In DamGoodSweet, pastry chef David Guas and food writer Raquel Pelzel delve into the rich fabric of the home-style sweets of New Orleans and its surrounding area. Through 50 amazing desserts, from traditional beignets, red velvet cake, and pralines to the lesser-known Roman chewing candy and calas fried rice cakes, Guas and Pelzel transport cooks from their home kitchens into the giant dessert gumbo that is New Orleans. Through instructional and anecdotal headnotes, plenty of great tips, and fun stories, DamGoodSweet is completely dedicated to the pastries and desserts of a unique American city.
