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.

Be warned that none are simple to make, though instructions are well laid out for those with baking experienced. I've especially liked the carrot and lemon cakes, so far.
