Piece of Cake!

One-Bowl, No-Fuss, From-Scratch Cakes


One-bowl cakes are the forgotten gems in the world of home baking. Many home bakers believe there are only two options for making cakes at home: 1) commercial cake mixes or 2) complicated, multistep recipes developed by professional chefs. But there’s another way: one-bowl cakes are all-natural, quick and easy to prepare.

They’re as much about what isn’t required as what is:

  • You don’t need multiple bowls
  • You will not need to cream the fat (e.g., butter, shortening or oil) with the sugar
  • You will not need to separate the eggs
  • You will not need to alternately add ingredients while simultaneously mixing
  • You will not need to use cake flour or any other fancy flour
  • You will not need to sift flour
  • You do not need to own or use a heavy-duty stand mixer
  • You’ll be able to create a multitude of cakes everyone loves to eat, from classic layer cakes and Bundt cakes to old-fashioned cakes and modern innovations.

The ever-popular lay-flat concealed wire-o hardcover binding, with full color throughout, makes this book even more convenient. In addition to the cake recipes, there are over 50 recipes for icings, glazes, syrups and sauces.
