Review:

Carol G. Durst is a working mother with a keen appreciation for time-saving measures. In I Knew You Were Coming So I Baked a Cake, Durst reconciles the seemingly irreconcilable: finding time in a busy schedule to prepare homemade, delicious desserts when store-bought just won't do. In an age when microwave meals and take-out pizza are the norm, it's still possible to dress up special occasions with a little home-baked warmth. Consider the "Don't Do It" Chocolate Cake: don't melt the chocolate, don't soften the butter, don't sift the flour--follow all these don'ts and you'll have an indecently rich and wonderful chocolate cake in less than 10 minutes. Better yet, you'll only have one bowl to wash afterwards! Shortcuts are the trick to great cookies, pies, cakes, puddings, and other delectables in record time, and Durst tells you everything you need to know to sport the fastest spatula on the block.
