Anne Schaeffer certainly has it together and understands how busy people are today. She has streamlined dessert so that everyone has a fabulous dessert or two that they can make on the spur of the moment. Her excellent cookbook, Dump Cake Magic: The No-Bowl, No-Mess Method of Fuss-Free Baking. Over 60 Easy Stir-and-Bake Recipes, Full-Color Photos, & Simple Instructions Make Desserts a Piece of Cake includes easy dump cakes made from convenience products as well as easy dump cakes made from scratch.
There is a color photograph of every recipe, which is certainly helpful, and the recipes are written simply so that they can be understood and followed by every baker – whether experienced or novice. The cakes included are cakes that people will really want to make and eat. Cranberry Delight is a quick and easy cake to serve over the holidays – it has minimal ingredients and everything is simply layered in a glass baking dish. It’s easy, and is very good. There is a French Pear Tart that takes only minutes to put together; the crust is frozen puff pastry and the pears are cooked in a cast iron skillet with a few other ingredients before topping with the pastry and baking in the oven – easy and beautiful. Other tempting recipes include: Peach Cobbler (cake mix), Almond Snack Cake (Yum!), Fudgy Skillet Brownies, Orange Dreamsicle Cake, and Very Berry Crumble to name a few.
Schaeffer also includes recipes for homemade cake mixes that can be stored and ready when baking becomes a priority; they call for simple ingredients that most bakers already have on their pantry shelves. Recipes calling for these homemade cake mixes give instructions for substituting commercial mixes as well.
All told, anyone who likes to bake, but is busy, should have this excellent and fun cookbook on the shelf. It has dozens of great ideas for quicker desserts that actually taste good.
