When Jean Anderson told me she was going to write a pudding book, my first thought was “Whoa, that’s going to be a short book.” I grew up in Idaho and I could only think of a half dozen puddings—chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, bread pudding, rice pudding. Well, no. I only knew five. I’m glad to say her pudding knowledge far exceeds mine. She has created at least 150 fabulous desserts that even I could make, from my favorite dead-easy Blueberry-Pecan Crunch to the delicious Sticky Toffee Pudding said to be the favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge. This book has the answer for “What can I make for a quick dessert?” whether you’re pleasing your toddlers at a week-night family dinner or cooking up something to wow your relatives at a family reunion or wondering what would finish off a splendid elegant dinner for eight. You will love this book. It will serve you well. And it makes a great gift because who doesn’t love dessert?
Fantastic book. I've been cooking and baking for decades and there comes a time when you need to dwell on the basics that are the foundation of more exotic recipes. This book is loaded with them along with more complex recipes. Great as a reference in all of the categories listed in the title of the book.
I love this book! This is now my favorite dessert cookbook. If you enjoy the types of deserts represented in this book then you must buy this book. I have only made a few recipes so far, but they have all turned out wonderfully, and have been extremely delicious! Please trust me and buy this book you will not regret it!
This cookbook has many American classics but also some recipes that are new to me. I love to try new desserts, so this week I made the cherry clafoutis which is described as a French cake-batter-topped cherry cobbler. It was really easy to make and it turned out as delicious as it did beautiful! I will be making many more of these desserts to share this summer.
