I simply had to post a review for Flo Braker’s Baking for All Occasions right away just to share the recipe for Eggnog Pound Cake with Crystal Rum Glaze. Next best thing to eggnog in a cup, combination of fresh eggnog, rum and currents baked in a nutmeg infused light pound cake is a definite holiday pleaser. I also really enjoyed making (and eating) the Gingerbread-Pecan Tart. And there are many more that I can’t wait to get to like the Zebra Cookies, Millionaire’s Shortbread (rich chocolate icing and caramelized milk filling give it a shot of decadence) and Deluxe Lemon-Lavender Mail-a-Cake.
These truly are recipes for special occasions and those bakers who love to spend some time creating something homey, yet special. There is a mix of old and new in this collection. I really appreciate the way the other has so helpfully and clearly laid out her recipes and taken the time to cover every detail, every step in clear language. It’s a book to inspire confidence and so far, great praise for the cook at the end of the meal.
