Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Aunt Di's bittersweet-chocolate frosted cake

    • meggan on July 31, 2017

      The frosting on this cake is too sweet. The cake was interesting - whip cream as fat instead of butter but that didn't produce the lighter cake that I thought it would. The cake was more pound cake than not with good but not exceptional flavor.

  • Cowboy cookies

    • Melanie on September 11, 2011

      Substituted butter for the shortening. Used a mix of chocolate chips and sultanas.

  • Less chocolate more mocha coffee spice cake

    • Melanie on October 09, 2011

      Cake has a similar taste to gingerbread, even though it is a reworking of the original recipes without ginger! The fudgy icing is delicious, would use on other cakes as well.

  • Miss Saigon cinnamon almond coffee cake

    • yassoma on August 28, 2016

      This cake sank a little bit in the middle but it was really delicious and quick to make. Would make again.

    The book is gorgeous and the feeling it has is the feeling I’m having: cozy, straightforward, simple and homespun.
