Notes about this book

  • PatriciaScarpin on January 27, 2012

    The peach cobbler is divine - the biscuits are soft and go perfectly well with the juicy filling. The fresh lemon cake is so tender it's even hard to slice - an instant favorite. And the coconut chews are amazingly good - I replaced half of the sweetened coconut amount for unsweetened coconut.

      I’ve...always felt that the chocolate part was usually a bit on the dry side, but not here: this cake is sheer perfection and to be honest with you the icing is not even necessary.

Publishers Text

This long-awaited cookbook offers recipes for all of the famous cakes, pies, puddings and crisps that the Loveless Cafe serves daily to throngs of hungry diners. The recipes highlight traditional Southern flavors such as peaches, pecans, bourbon, buttermilk, and sorghum. Including fruit, nut, and custard pies, layer and pound cakes, cheescakes, pudding, bars, and cookies, the recipes are easy to follow, but the updated flavor combinations make them suitable for even more experienced bakers. Derived from Southern traditions, the recipes come with interesting stories, which are conveyed in chapter introductions and recipe headnotes. Essays extolling the virtues of Southern ingredients and food customs are scattered throughout the book. The down-to-earth charm of the Loveless Cafe is reflected in the full-colour photos and the design of the book.
