Product description


Everyone loves a traditional dessert, especially during the festive season. But these creative recipes put a fresh, fruity spin on much-loved favourites. . . . Taking familiar baking recipes, Schreiber adds unexpected fillings to create flavour combinations as diverse as the stories behind them: think pomegranate molasses cake, blueberry ginger muffins and passionfruit lime pavlova.--Stylist (UK)

The vibrant cakes, muffins, pastries, and sweets that fill the pages of Jason Schreiber's new cookbook Fruit Cake will make you forget about the old doorstop studded with dried fruit and try your hand at baking something more fanciful.--Food & Wine

[A] fun, inspiring collection of cakes . . . there is something for everyone. Bakers will enjoy the quirky writing style and delicious flavors.--Library Journal

Schreiber debuts with an inspiring collection of recipes for cakes enriched with fruit that will be a revelation for fruitcake skeptics. A sharp design comprising easy-to-follow ingredient grids and modern-vintage-feel photography adds a polished touch. This will tantalize bakers seeking a modern approach to classic desserts.--Publishers Weekly

This exquisitely designed cookbook offers an update to the fruit cake, that retro Christmas classic. The book's most stunning feature is photographs of cake slices, cupcakes, and other baked goods arranged in repeating patterns and in a brown, orange, and gold color palette that offers a fitting nod to the '70s, the fruit cake's heyday.--Booklist

Jason's love of shaking up tradition is evident. Adding fruits to bolster flavors in familiar baked goods is groundbreaking . . . steering us to experiment, try new combinations of flavors, and expand our baking vocabulary.--From the foreword by Martha Stewart

There are many superlatives that can be used to describe Jason Schreiber as a person, a baker, a cake designer, an artist, and now a writer. But here's my favorite: Jason is simply delightful. This book will not only teach you how to bake better, it will make you feel good.--Ron Ben-Israel, cake designer and television host --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Food stylist Jason Schreiber honed his craft at the French Culinary Institute in New York City, but his education began years earlier in the kitchen of his childhood home in suburban New Jersey, where he churned out baked goods of all shapes and sizes. After completing his studies, Jason worked alongside celebrity cake maker Ron Ben-Israel, who taught him the importance of precision and the value of camaraderie in a professional kitchen. After five years of creating jaw-dropping cakes with Ron and his team, Jason took the plunge into the cutthroat world of New York City freelance food styling and recipe development. Within a week, his work was featured on the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings, and with that his new career was born. He continues to contribute regularly to Martha's magazines, books, and television shows and has expanded his clientele to others such as Food & Wine, Real Simple, and Delish (to name a few), as well as many nationally available household brands and products. Jason lives in Brooklyn, New York, and he doesn't have a dog, yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite!
Reviewed in the United States on 20 November 2020
I loooooooooove cookbooks, but it’s rare that I’ll cook or bake a lot from a new one right off the bat. Not so with this book - ever since it arrived it’s been open. I’ve baked three of the recipes - Bim’s Yeast Cake (somewhere between a brioche and a coffee cake - not too sweet and so delicious), the raspberry tea cake (a flavorful loaf with a delicate crumb) and the Sacher torte (my father’s favorite cake, which I think of as dry and dusty - but this recipe is neither, it’s richly flavored and moist and so delicious. My father deeply appreciates having this favorite cake now appreciated by the rest of the family, thanks to this recipe!) I have so many post-its marking recipes I want to bake the book is basically mostly post-its at this point. And it’s not only fun to bake from, the photos are gorgeous and Schreiber’s voice in the instructions (which are all crystal clear) is quirky and fun. It’s a book with personality that will banish the thought of stodgy dense fruit cakes from your mind forever. It’s fantastic.
