Description

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 hihglight 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.

Review quote

"Like learning to bake with your great grandmother, Huntsman guides readers step-by-step through some of the most treasured dessert recipes of the South. The book is clean and unfussy, and the author's recipes can provide absolutely lip-smacking results. . . . Not only are the recipes mouthwatering, they usher in the warm sentimental goodness that can only result from home-baked joy."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Although your mama may never have baked a Double Coconut Cream Pie, Blueberry Skillet Cobbler or Lady Lemon Squares, the Loveless legacy is now yours."
--BookPage

"Elegant and comforting."
--Providence Journal

"Real pudding made from scratch in under 15 minutes will make you drop the boxed version in a second."
