BOOK TALK THURSDAY 3

Beautiful Bundts book coverPicnic season will be here (eventually) and what could be more perfect than impressing your friends and family with a lovely cake? Beautiful Bundts by Julie Anne Hession has many options for a show-stopping cake! Do you like Boston Cream Bundt? Take a look at the recipe on page 100. Maybe Pumpkin Spice Pull-Apart Bundt  is more your speed. Page 148 is your stop.  There are savory recipes as well like Southwestern Mac & Cheese Bundt (p 246)  or Crispy Parmesan Hash Brown Bundts  (p 262).

The great thing about this recipe book is that it has a beautiful picture of a beautiful bundt for each of its recipes. You can also get bundt basics like greasing the pan, testing for doneness, or making a filled cake.

The recipes are easy to follow and go step by step, so this could be good for bundt beginners, but there is enough variety in the techniques it covers that a more advanced baker might also enjoy it.
