Jim Fobel's Old-Fashioned Baking Book
by Jim Fobel
Paperback, 207 pages
Inspired by his grandmother, mother, and four aunts, Jim Fobel has collected the best of their old-fashioned recipes and re-worked them for today’s cooks. Favorites include Grandma’s Devil’s Food Cake and Boston Cream Pie. Though classic, the recipes reflect the personality of their originators. Mom’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake calls for fresh pineapple instead of canned, and Aunt Charlotte’s Best Apricot Pie uses apricots poached in pineapple juice. Old photographs and family stories lend personal history and nostalgia to this time-tested collection.
