Cake Simple: Recipes for Bundt-Style Cakes from Classic Dark Chocolate to Luscious Lemon-Basil

I'm a successful for Bundt cake pans, so I needed a good number of recipes to use with them. This book is great.

These are two very different styles, but both are amazing! I've made full sized, mini, cupcake, and tea cake sized cakes with these ...

Fantastic collection of beer cans, heavy on American beers of the 50s, 60s, and 70s but with a sampling from other times and places. I do wish some of the examples they used weren't so rusted and corroded, but that's a minor quibble. I defy anyone to flip through this book without craving a beer.

Also, I usually hate cooking out of a cookbook because usually recipes require so many ingredients and steps to follow, these recipes in this cookbook are so simple and are laid out num...

I also like that many of the steps have photos that accompany them so I can get a good visual of what my candy should look like. The author also has some trouble shooting help, which helps with ever...
