Now, How About Vintage Cakes?

Man this list moves fast! The Cookbook of the month was the one I replied to at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/896695

Over the last couple of days, I've made three cakes from this book (Memories: Vintage Cakes) for a fundraiser and a birthday party and I am very happy. I've tried so far: Devil's Food Cake, Creole Beauty Cake, and Pound Cake because I had most of the ingredients in my pantry.

I am thrilled there is a photo for every recipe! I will be trying more before the weather gets too hot to bake.

Now, How About Vintage Cakes?

I just replied in the cookbook section about this! I just purchased a copy of Memories: Vintage Cake Recipes by Becky Johnson and I can't wait to bake something from it. I had been searching forever for a modern book of vintage recipes (that hadn't been modernized) that also had photos. It is so important to have a photo with a recipe.

The recipe that strikes me as interesting is the Husband's Cake. It is made with tomato soup of all things! The other ones that look good are the Dundee cake and poppyseed cake.

What cookbooks have you bought recently, or are you lusting after? April 2013 edition [old]

Memories: Vintage Cakes, by Becky Johnson, ISBN 978-0615781761. I am excited to get this book from Amazon because I've been searching for a modern book with vintage recipes and photos. It's been hard to find.

I've also just purchased a copy of Gordon Ramsay's Make it Easy, ISBN 978-0764598784 and Nigella Lawson's Nigellissima, ISBN 978-0770437015.

Can't to get cookin!
