Hi! Hello there! How are you? I hope you are holding up ok.
I have been keeping a secret, and I’ve been nervous to share this news with you because wow the world feels upside-down right now, but I guess now is as good of a time as any to tell you: I WROTE AND PHOTOGRAPHED A NEW BOOK! It’s called SNACKING CAKES and it will be published by Clarkson Potter this October if all goes according to plan.
Snacking Cakes is full of one-bowl cake recipes that you can make with minimal ingredients, some simple tools (no electric mixers necessary!), and an 8×8 (or 9-inch round!) pan. There are 50 recipes, but they all sneakily have flavor and pan variations making the true count of recipes much higher than that. It’s got it all from bright citrusy cakes to rich chocolatey ones, and everything in between. There is truly something for everyone and they are the kind of cakes you can make any day of the week. That beauty on the cover is a Cocoa Yogurt Cake that comes together so quickly, and lasts for days on the counter. You can top it with a glaze too, but only if you feel like it. This one is vanilla bean, but there are lots and lots to choose from.
I know I haven’t checked in here in a long while and the truth is I took the summer off of blogging to work on some photography projects, and teach at my beloved Melisses. Then, the minute those projects were wrapping up I found myself writing this VERY FUN book full of TRULY EASY, very SNACKABLE CAKE recipes for any occasion…like moving into a new apartment or a low key birthday or making it through work on a Monday. I kinda wish I could just send it to all of you right now because I know you are all baking at home a lot more than usual and I’d love to share these recipes with you. Alas, that isn’t the way that book publishing works.
I’ll be back soon with more info, but if you’d like to and can swing a preorder (please do, this is such a weird time to be publishing a book!) there’s a link over in the sidebar. Take care of yourselves and others out there.
