Rose Levy Beranbaum is one of my favorite recipe authors. Her Cake Bible is a stand alone work of complete brilliance. You should definitely visit her website and blog at http://www.realbakingwithrose.com/. Ms. Beranbaum’s recipes are tested, written out with both volumes and weights (this alone gives her a special place in my heart), and are well explained and scientifically documented. Really, I cannot sing this woman’s praise enough!
