In terms of down-home appeal, "James McNair's Cakes" can't be beat. Reading this book feels like nothing so much as sitting around a Formica kitchen table, swapping recipes for a church supper or a ladies' lunch. While McNair knows how to dazzle (check out the Molten Chocolate Babycakes garnished with gold leaf), it is the generous way he reinvents the classics spiking a carrot cake with preserved ginger, and laying caramelized bananas atop a cr me fra che-enriched bananas Foster cake that wins the heart and makes us eager to revisit old favorites.
