Descriptions du produit



These are anytime cakes, easy ones you want to whip up and keep on the kitchen counter to enjoy for breakfast, slice for snacks and lunchboxes, or serve with pots of tea. Rich pound cakes may be the most familiar, but plenty of other batters can be baked in the familiar rectangular pans, too. The loaves are also a cinch to dress up with fresh fruit, sauces, curds, compotes, or whipped cream for a plated dessert.

Pound Cake

Light on effort, heavy on satisfaction, pound cake owes its name to the traditional ingredients—one pound each of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs—which remain essentially the same today. This batter makes a delicious classic pound cake, and it’s also the base for the variations on the following pages. A couple of tips for success: Leave the butter and eggs out at room temperature for an hour before mixing; if they’re cold, the batter will not be properly smooth. Creaming the butter and sugar thoroughly is crucial, because it gives the batter the necessary volume. Makes two 9-by-5-inch loaves

2cups (1 pound) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pans

1pound (about 3 cups) all-purpose flour

1teaspoon coarse salt

21/4cups sugar (1 pound)

1teaspoon vanilla extract

9large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten

Whipped Cream, for serving (optional; page TK)

Macerated Berries, for serving (optional; page TK)

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Butter two 9-by-5-inch loaf pans. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and salt.

2. With an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 8 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl. Reduce speed to medium; beat in vanilla. Add eggs in 4 batches, beating thoroughly after each and scraping down sides of bowl. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture in 4 batches, beating until just incorporated.

3. Divide batter evenly between prepared pans. Tap pans on counter; smooth tops with an offset spatula. Bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 65 minutes. Transfer pans to a wire rack to cool 30 minutes. Turn out cakes onto rack to cool completely. Serve with whipped cream and macerated berries, if desired.

Five More Pound Cakes

Vanilla Bean–Ginger pound cake

Follow Pound Cake recipe (page 15), substituting seeds of 1 vanilla bean (split lengthwise and scraped) for the vanilla extract. Bake and cool as directed. For the ginger glaze: Heat 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk and 1/4 cup sliced fresh ginger in a saucepan over medium heat until milk begins to simmer. Let cool; discard ginger. Stir in 2 cups confectioners’ sugar. Drizzle over cooled cakes. Sprinkle chopped candied ginger on top.

Chocolate-Chip pound cake

Follow Pound Cake recipe (page 15), folding 2 cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips into finished batter. Bake and cool as directed. Serve cake with Chocolate–Coffee Liqueur Sauce (page TK) and vanilla ice cream.

Blueberry–Sour Cream pound cake

Follow Pound Cake recipe (page 15), substituting 1/2 cup sour cream for 1/2 cup butter. Toss 2 cups fresh blueberries with 2 tablespoons flour; fold into finished batter. Before baking, sprinkle 2 tablespoons sanding sugar over each cake. Bake and cool as directed. Serve with Whipped Cream (lemon variation; page TK).

Toasted Coconut pound cake

Follow Pound Cake recipe (page 15), folding 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut into finished batter. Before baking, sprinkle 1/3 cup additional coconut over each cake; bake, tented with foil, and cool as directed. Serve with mango-lime sauce: Purée 1 chopped pitted mango, 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, 1 teaspoon sugar, and a pinch of salt in a food processor until smooth. Stir in 3/4 cup diced mango and 1 teaspoon lime zest.

Marble Pound Cake

Follow Pound Cake recipe (page 15), omitting flour and salt, and dividing batter in half after the eggs are mixed into the batter in step 2. Mix 11/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour and 11/2 teaspoons salt into half the batter; mix 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, and 11/2 teaspoons salt into the other half. Scoop batters into prepared pan, 1/2 cup at a time, alternating plain and chocolate. Swirl with a knife. Bake and cool as directed.

Lemon Pound Cakes

Lemon-flavored desserts always top the list of favorites among Martha Stewart Living staffers—and readers, too. This one is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser, with lemon zest mixed in the batter, syrup soaked into the warm cakes, and glaze poured over the top—not to mention the beautiful garnish of candied lemon slices. Makes two 9-by-5-inch loaves

For the cakes

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pans

3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pans

3/4teaspoon salt

1/2teaspoon baking soda

2tablespoons finely grated lemon zest (from 2 lemons)

21/2cups granulated sugar

6 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup sour cream

For the candied lemon slices and syrup

1cup granulated sugar

1cup water

2lemons, sliced 1/8 inch thick or thinner, seeds removed

1/3to 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)

For the glaze

2cups confectioners’ sugar

4to 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)

1. Make the cakes: Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter two 9-by-5-inch loaf pans; dust with flour, tapping out excess. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and lemon zest.

2. With an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition; mix in vanilla. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with 2 batches of sour cream.

3. Divide batter evenly between prepared pans; smooth tops with an offset spatula. Bake until a cake tester comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes (tent loosely with foil if tops begin to brown too quickly).

4. Meanwhile, make candied lemon slices and syrup: In a medium saucepan, combine granulated sugar and the water; bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add lemon slices; simmer very gently over medium-low heat, swirling pan occasionally, until slices are opaque throughout, about 35 minutes. Remove from heat; with a slotted spoon, transfer slices to a sheet of waxed paper. Stir lemon juice into syrup to taste.

5. Remove cakes from oven. While still in pans, use a wooden skewer or toothpick to poke several holes in tops. Set aside ¼ cup lemon syrup; pour remainder over cakes. Transfer pans to a wire rack to cool completely, about 2 hours. Turn out cakes onto rack; set rack over a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush tops and sides of cakes all over with reserved syrup.

6. Make the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar and 4 tablespoons lemon juice; add up to 2 more tablespoons juice until glaze is pourable but thick. Pour over cakes (still on rack), letting it drip down sides. Let set, about 30 minutes. Garnish with candied lemon slices.

Blood Orange–Olive Oil Cake

The winning combination of chocolate and orange gets a twist: Blood-orange zest and juice flavor an olive-oil cake that is generously drizzled with a deep, dark chocolate glaze. Each slice of cake is topped with a honey-sweetened blood-orange compote. Makes one 9-by-5-inch loaf

Unsalted butter, room temperature, for pan

13/4cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pan

6 blood oranges

1 cup sugar

1/2cup buttermilk

3 large eggs

2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

11/2teaspoons baking powder

1/4teaspoon baking soda

1/4teaspoon salt

1/4cup honey

2 ounces bittersweet chocolate (preferably 70 percent cacao), finely chopped (1/3 cup)

1/4cup heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan; dust with flour, tapping out excess. With a vegetable peeler, remove colorful peel from 1 orange, leaving white pith behind. With a paring knife, cut rind into enough matchsticks to yield 2 tablespoons. Finely grate enough rind of remaining oranges to yield 1 packed tablespoon zest.

2. Peel 6 oranges; working over a bowl, cut segments free of membranes. Squeeze juice from membranes into a bowl (you will need ¼ cup juice). Cut segments in half, and place in bowl with orange-peel matchsticks.

3. Combine sugar and zest in another bowl; using your fingers, rub together well. Add juice and the buttermilk; whisk to combine. Add eggs and oil; whisk to combine. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a small bowl; add to buttermilk mixture, whisking until smooth.

4. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake until golden and a cake tester comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool 15 minutes. Turn out cake onto rack to cool completely. (Cake can be stored at room temperature, wrapped in plastic, up to 2 days.)

5. Stir honey into bowl with orange segments. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Bring cream to a gentle simmer in a small saucepan. Pour over chocolate, let stand 5 minutes, and then whisk until smooth. Drizzle ganache over cooled cake and let set, about 1 hour. Serve with orange compote.

Cream-Cheese Pound Cake

The addition of cream cheese to the classic recipe results in an irresistibly moist and flavorful pound cake. Instead of making two loaves, you can make a single cake by baking the batter in a four-quart tube or Bundt pan; increase the cooking time by about five minutes. These cakes taste better the next day, and they store beautifully in the freezer (up to three months), wrapped well in plastic and foil. Makes two 9-by-5-inch loaves

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons salt

11⁄2cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

8 ounces (1 bar) cream c...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I thought I was terrible at baking until I came across this book 6 octobre 2013
Par Cat I am - Publié sur Amazon.com
For the longest time I thought I was terrible at making cakes. Somehow they never turned out right even if I followed the recipe to the T, checked my oven's temperature religiously and used only high quality ingredients. While most of the cakes I produced were edible they were not what I would call great. However, ALL cakes I made from this book came out fantastic! The recipes are tried and true, the instructions are clear and well edited. I highly recommend this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 another great book in the Martha Stewart series 8 octobre 2013
Par kaitlynic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is similar to her other books on Cupcakes, Cookies, and Pie & Tarts. I have enjoyed the other ones and I will enjoy this one as well. There are a good variety of recipes, both common recipes, as well as some unusual ones. A few that are looking particularly appealing to me are the Molasses-Spice Cake with Cream Cheese-Sour Cream Frosting and Brown-Sugar Glaze(a lot of hypens but sounds delicious, especially for fall), Strawberries-and-Cream Cheesecake, Lemon Meringue Cake, and Cheesecake with Poached Apricots. Some of the features of the book that I really enjoy are having a color picure of each recipes, and having a list of all recipes at the front of the book under each chapter heading so you can easily glance through to find an appealing recipe or see if a recipe is included for a particular cake you are looking for.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Martha Stewart's online recipes are better and more accurate, skip this one 2 février 2014
Par Lia Carmine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Okay, I am a devoted follower of Martha Stewart's Living magazine and she is my go to resource for dessert recipes. From her fancy cakes to her simpler ones I always had a great result when I used her online recipes, so I thought it would be nice to have a book solely for cakes since they are my favorite thing to bake. I'd classify myself as an intermediate baker - I've been baking for many years but there are still some things I'm not super experienced with, although cakes are my specialty.

So I had an event to bring a cake to and I came across the Devil's Food Cake recipe on page 288 with the Seven minute frosting. I had made both of these from the website at different times so I thought they'd be a nice safe bet since they are fairly straightforward recipes and I have experience with them.

Let's start with the cake. I followed the recipes to a T and carefully read the instructions. It asks for two 8 inch round cake pans. I have these and I doublechecked them. They were the right size and yet the cake overflowed like crazy. I had made the devil's food cake from the website and while it had been a tall cake it never overflowed. This one was ridiculous. I was able to salvage it by trimming but the cake ended up on the dry side. I think the recipe needs larger cake pans. I'm not sure if 9 inch round would be enough, but they certainly would have helped.

Now the frosting is where I get very very mad. So I follow the recipe which lists the ingredients as follows: 1 1/2 cups sugar, 5 large egg whites, 1 Tbsp light corn syrup, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. The instructions have you simmer everything but the vanilla over a double boil until "sugar is dissolved (mixture should feel completely smooth when rubbed between your fingers), 2 to 3 minutes." Then you put it in an electric mixer and beat on high until stiff, about 7 minutes and beat in vanilla".

Okay I do all this exactly and the thing is not coming together. Not.At. All. I decide to look the recipe up online to see if there are any comments that may help me figure out the problem. When you check it online: [...] the quantities are different: 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 Tbps light corn syrup, 6 large egg whites, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. And the instructions online have this helpful tidbit: "cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, about 2 minutes." Why the !%U(#%U#(% isn't that in the damn book? It's incredibly helpful. And this recipe has you beat it in the electric mixer for only about 5 minutes.

I scrapped the entire first batch and did it again following the online instructions and it worked just fine. So the recipe I paid for was terrible and didn't work and the recipe that's posted for free is great. And I'm not an expert baker but it doesn't appear that the book recipe is just scaled down for a smaller portion because the online recipe has the same amount of sugar more syrup and egg white and less vanilla and you whip it for less time.

I have no idea how many other recipes in the book suffer this type of problem, but if you purchase this book (which I don't recommend) doublecheck the recipe online to see if there are any issues. I followed the recipe exactly and I ended up with an overflowing cake that turned out dry (despite having sour cream and 3 damn sticks of butter) and a frosting recipe that wouldn't stiffen.

This book reads like someone went to Martha Stewart's website, took a few existing recipes and changed a couple little things and then just threw them in a book. I'm very disappointed and I'm sad that I can no longer trust my go-to source for cake recipes.

Please don't buy this book, save yourself the money and the hassle and just look up the recipes online. The recipes there are better written and better quality.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally a cookbook adapted to and proof-read for e-books! 24 septembre 2013
Par Marianne Mantell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Of course Martha Stewart's recipes are great. But this is the first e-cookbook in which recipes start at the top of the page, ingredients begin on a separate line, links work, scanned copy doesn't wind up as indecipherable parentheses and asterisks.

In short, this is the first real e-cookbook. There's also nothing in it that I won't bake as soon as time and the availability of ingredients permit.
