Delicious Desserts from Midwest Kitchens

Author Susanna Short, Preface by Dorothy Dalquist

Minnesota Historical Society Press (November 1, 2007)

Rediscover the magic of Bundt baking with eighty-seven extraordinary recipes from kitchens across the Midwest.


How does an ordinary person make a sophisticated, crowd-pleasing cake in a snap? With a Bundt pan, of course! Foodie Susanna Short brings back the beautiful Bundts of yesteryear with mouthwatering, kitchen-tested recipes for busy families, elegant entertainers, and confection connoisseurs everywhere in Bundt Cake Bliss.

From vintage favorites like Quick Orange Kiss and Tunnel of Fudge to fanciful finds like Green Chili Cornbread and Mexican Hot Chocolate Mini Bundts, this delightful book features just about every delectable bundt baked by the Midwest’s own since the handy pan burst into the baking scene in the 1960s. And don’t forget the dozens of glazes, sauces, and frostings sure to transform any cake into a shining crown of glory.

Here is a cookbook that makes baking accessible to all, where fun is an essential tool in the kitchen. Among the delicious recipes and stories of the cakes and their creators are tips for dressing up Bundts for special occasions and for managing those unexpected mishaps. And to top it off, Short offers warm and humorous reflections about the power of Bundts in building community.
