Promotional Information

From the New York Times bestselling Cake Mix Doctor comes the next instalment of delicious cake recipes, but this time with American History as the backdrop. With a little culinary time travel, Byrn shows that no matter what's happening in our culture, Americans always need a little sugar.

Anne Byrn is the bestselling author of the Cake Mix Doctor and Dinner Doctor cookbook series. Formerly a food editor at The Atlanta Journal-Consitution, and a graduate of the La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine in Paris, Bryn has always been a foodie. Anne lives with her family in Nashville, Tennessee.

Reviews

"If you like cakes, you're not alone. For 250 years, Americans have been making whatever cake they could with whatever they could find. Anne Byrn's impressive, big-hearted, historical tribute to the genre is a must-have for its dizzying diversity. (You surely haven't heard of Oregon prune cake, Texas sheath cake or Scripture Cake, have you?) You can trace America's gastronomic evolution and geographic expansion from cornmeal and molasses to Hershey bars and pineapples. Both the cakes and their stories are obscure, unexpected, delightful and worth getting to know, one sweet slice of history at a time."
-- T. Susan Chang, NPR Kitchen Window

"Readers will find decade-defining information, such as the popularity of using baby food fruit purees in baking in the 1970s, and sidebars on prominent baking figures who have made their marks in kitchens across the country, including Betty Crocker and Martha Stewart. These well researched and written pages go far beyond the average baking guide."
--Publisher's Weekly "Fascinating, delightfully original, American Cake [is] author Anne Byrn's can't-stop-reading history lesson that's masquerading as a cookbook. One that's bound to be a prizewinner."
--Rick Nelson, Star Tribune "Byrn digs deep into America's archives, including everyday recipe boxes, to find the history behind some of the country's most popular cakes."
--Addie Broyles, Austin American-Statesman
