Item description for The Cake Mix Doctor... by Anne Byrn...
Overview Offers 175 recipes that use packaged cake mixes enhanced with additional ingredients to create special desserts with the ease and dependability of commercial cake mixes
Publishers Description "The Cake Mix Doctor" is in And the prescription is simple: By doctoring up packaged cake mix with just the right extras--a touch of sweet butter here, cocoa powder there, or poppy seeds, vanilla yogurt, sherry, eggs, and grated lemon zest for the Charleston Poppy Seed Cake--even the least experienced baker can turn out luscious signature desserts, time after time. The proof is in the taste, and the taste never stops--from Toasted Coconut Sour Cream Cake to Devilishly Good Chocolate Cake; from a to-die-for Caramel Cake and a Holiday Yule Log to cheesecakes, coffee cakes, sheet cakes, pound cakes, bars, brownies, and those all-important frostings, here are 175 fast, foolproof recipes that will transform the art of home baking in America. Who could believe these cakes came out of a box? Moist, tender, rich, deep, and complexly flavored, without a hint of artificiality, each cake stand up and delivers. But without any of the fuss of baking from scratch. Anne Byrn, an award-wining food writer and self-described purist, creates recipes that employ a cake mix's strengths---convenience, ease-of-use, dependability, and almost imperviousness to overbeating, underbeating, overbaking, and underbaking. In addition to the recipes are the Cake Mix Doctor's Q&A's, extensive "Doctor Says" tips, lists--15 Beautiful Birthday Cakes, 15 Cakes That Will Cash in at a Bake Sale--and more, all illustrated in a full-color photographic insert.

The cake doctor book, an oldie but a goodie May 27, 2008
The book was a gift for a friend of mine, it got here in time and in great shape! Thanks she LOVES it! She had tasted a recipe from the book and for 6 months spoke of how she wanted the book! Every recipe she has made from it for friends or family has gotten rave reviews, truly some WONDERFUL recipes in it!
Cake Doctor Cookbook May 11, 2008
I love this book and use it frequently...it would also make a good gift for wedding showers.
Baking May 10, 2008
A very well written book with easy to follow (step by step) directions. I would recommend this for any home baker from the novice to the "expert". I have used the recipes several times for family, friends, and more formal occasions. Each and every time, the cake has been moist, tinder, and delicious. I especially like the "flavor boosters" that a baker can add: lemon zest, coffee, yogurt, etc. This really adds the "yum" factor!
great cake mix cook book Mar 26, 2008
I've stopped baking from scratch a long time ago. I tried to doctor up cake mixes by using milk instead of water....adding chocolate. But this book takes it to another level. I love that it has a "stock" your cake pantry list thta's very short and easy to do.
cook book Mar 7, 2008
This is the third copy of this cook book that I have purchased. The first for me years ago and the other two for my daughters. It is a great source for quick and easy cakes and bars using cake mixes as the base for the recipes.
