Southern Living’s The Southern Cake Book


Yay!  I won Southern Living‘s The Southern Cake Book in a giveaway on Cookbooks365Cookbooks365 is a very cool blog by Fran and Shelly who feature recipes from new cookbooks on many different subjects.  This one is all about Southern cakes.

I want to make one of the cakes in the book for an upcoming birthday.  The cover cake is ambrosia cake and it looks pretty fabulous.  The strawberries-and-cream  cake is also a contender, as is the most requested Southern Living recipe, the hummingbird cake.  Having spent much time in the South, I love red velvet cake, caramel cake and pound cake.  The book has traditional recipes for each of these.  There’s a recipe from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Mama Dip’s carrot cake.  So I look forward to trying a recipe!

  5. What a fantastic prize! Congrats!! I love the cake on the cover. These days I don’t bake as many cakes, since most from scratch recipes don’t work without adjustments in this high altitude. But cakes still are my first kitchen love.
