Biscuits, pancakes & quick breads : 120 recipes to make in no time flat

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

In her latest volume, Cox, winner of both the IACP Cookbook and the James Beard awards, highlights homey, bready delights traditionally served for breakfast. The premise of her book is summed up in the title of the introduction: ?Old-Fashioned Comfort Foods for Modern Schedules.? Each section (Biscuits, Pancakes and Quick Breads) offers recipes for many meals, including breakfast, tea, dinner and dessert. She begins with a thorough baking primer, and launches into succinct biscuit-making tips, before offering recipes such as Always-Ready Flaky Biscuit Mix. Tantalizing recipes include French Chocolate Biscuits for dessert, Skillet Chicken Cobbler for a main course, and traditional English Tea Scones for afternoon tea. In addition to a basic Everyday Pancake Mix, Cox presents recipes for crepes (Parmesan-Parsley) as well as Lacy Southern Cornmeal Cakes with Eggs and Cheddar Sauce for breakfast; for a main course, there is Mexican Masa cakes with Chevre & Red Pepper Sauce. Her quick breads are equally hearty and rich, such as Parmesan, Sage & Olive Polenta Bread, and Classic Southern Spoonbread. (May) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

From Library Journal:

Cox, the author of ten other cookbooks, describes her easy biscuits, quick breads, and pancakes, warm from the oven or skillet, as "comfort food for modern schedules." She includes recipes for "always ready" biscuit, pancake, and bread mixes to keep on hand in the pantry, along with old-fashioned favorites like Buckwheat-Molasses Griddle Cakes and innovations such as Chocolate Crepes Filled with Dulce de Leche. A nice companion to James Villas's recent Biscuit Bliss, this is recommended for larger baking collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
