Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful recipes but..... I love the new cookbook but as the grandmother of a child with type 1 diabetes, I wish it had included the nutritional information which so many cookbooks now include.  Martha, since you, too, are a Grandmum, you will understand my concern!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as her others! I have the cookie book and the cupcake book from Martha Stewart both of which I love, the cakes edition promises to be just as good. There are tantalizing photos of each recipe which makes me want to try them all.

LoavesThese are anytime cakes, easy ones you want to whip up and keep on the kitchen counter to enjoy for breakfast, slice for snacks and lunchboxes, or serve with pots of tea. Rich pound cakes may be the most familiar, but plenty of other batters can be baked in the familiar rectangular pans, too. The loaves are also a cinch to dress up with fresh fruit, sauces, curds, compotes, or whipped cream for a plated dessert.pound cake, page 17Pound CakeLight on effort, heavy on satisfaction, pound cake owes its name to the traditional ingredients—one pound each of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs—which remain essentially the same today. This batter makes a delicious classic pound cake, and it’s also the base for the variations on the following pages. A couple of tips for success: Leave the butter and eggs out at room temperature for an hour before mixing; if they’re cold, the batter will not be properly smooth. Creaming the butter and sugar thoroughly is crucial, because it gives the batter the necessary volume.
