Those who know me know that Mama, (that’s me) is not much of a reader. I am definitely not a reader of fiction I can tell you that. Β When I’m able to harness my attention to read though, I do like a good biography or something historical. But what I really love are cookbooks. I have bookcases all over the house just filled with every kind of cookbook you can think of, though most are about desserts. That shouldn’t come as a surprise.

I love cookbooks because you can go back and look at them over and over again, which is not something I would do with other kinds of books. And I love pictures! I will rarely buy a cookbook that isn’t filled with lots of tantalizing photos. One of my favorite cookbooks is “The Modern Baker” by Nick Malgieri. For those of you out there who like to bake, or if you just want to give it a shot, this should be your book. Every recipe is a winner. So many breads, cakes and cookies in this book, and not enough time to make it all. So, I’m sharing this Apple Raisin Loaf Cake recipe from the book. Hope you give it a try. I bet you’ll love it.

Mama’s Tips:

To grate my apples, I used a box grater like this.

If you line your baking pans with a piece of parchment, and lightly brush the parchment with butter, you will not have a problem with the cake sticking to the pan.

I kept this cake wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator, and it stayed fresh for 4 days.

  1. This looks amazing! I love baking with apples, and am looking forward to trying this one. Also, thanks for the parchment paper tip!

    I don’t have a large collection of cookbooks, but the ones I have I refer to again and again, like you mentioned in your post. My fave is “The Fanny Farmer Cookbook” that my grandmother gave me when I turned 12. Some of the pages stick together, there are splatter stains throughout, and I recently put a (second) layer of packing tape on the spine to hold the binding together. I know I could buy a new (and updated) version of this cookbook, but it just wouldn’t be the same. I love that this book falls open at my favourite recipes…and it always makes me think of my grandmother and her thick Hungarian accent.

  2. I grew up on these types of sweet breads – they were on the table at every reuinion, get together and funeral…but I’ve never seen such deliciousness! πŸ™‚ Beautiful post!
