Each recipe in How to Bake a Perfect Cake is a confectionary stroll down memory lane. Author Nicholas Brown selected the most inventive, surprising, and just plain delicious cakes he could find. The result is a delightful and delectable time capsule of American baking, with recipes spanning a century.
A cake is a very good test of an oven: if it browns too much on one side and not on the other, it’s not your fault – you need to have your oven checked.
Each cake has been expertly tested and retooled using the best ingredients and most up-to-date techniques.
Brown details each step in the process, giving you the knowledge and confidence to create countless versions of your own.
Roll up your sleeves, warm up your oven, and find a new favorite cake!
