The SoNo Baking Company Cookbook

: The best sweet and savory recipes for every occasion

by John Barricelli

This is a beautiful book with lovely, full-page photos for many of the recipes. Most of the recipes are for sweets but the seventh chapter is Breads and the eighth is Savories. The recipe instructions are clear and easy to follow. They are not, in general, quick and easy recipes but the average home baker should not have difficulty making them.

I made two of the cakes: Apple Spice Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting and SoNo Chocolate Ganache Cake. They were both delicious, but the brown sugar frosting just tasted like sweetened butter so I scraped it all off the cake, added 1 1/2 cups icing sugar and spread it on again. It was much better. The Chocolate Ganache Cake (photo on right) was rich, chocolaty and wonderful. It would serve quite a few because you really can't eat a large piece. All in all, a great cookbook.
