Cake Simple by Christie Matheson
Cake Simple by Christie Matheson
All Bundts. All the Time. Awesomeness.

The Food Librarian is in a book! A real, hardcover cookbook! Wow!

My Fuyu Persimmon Bundt recipe appears on page 82-83 in the new cookbook "Cake Simple" by Christie Matheson. Published by Chronicle Books, this all bundt cookbook features amazing photos by Alex Farnum. Christie is the co-author of Joanne Chang's Flour cookbook - one of my favorites!

Over a year ago, I received an email from Christie Matheson saying she was writing a book about Bundts! I was so excited - a book about my favorite cake. Then she asked if I wanted to share some of my favorite bundt recipes. I sent her a few and low and behold, it made it into the book! This is my favorite Sunset Magazine recipe and celebrates all my obsessions: Bundts, Fuyu Persimmons (from my dad's backyard) and California fall (you know, our leaves don't change so we need food to tell us it's fall).

My Fuyu Persimmon Bundt in "Cake Simple" by Christie Matheson

Here is the headnote Christie wrote and the ingredients on page 82. Directions are on page 83.

And this book comes out just in time for my 3rd "I Like Big Bundts" celebration for National Bundt Day on November 15th. I hope you pick up a copy of this book so you'll have lots of recipes to choose from. Christie has some wonderful bundts in this book including Cornmeal Lime with Chile, Orange Pecan, Lemon Basil and your classic Chocolate bundts. I can't wait to try them! Thanks so much Christie for including me in your lovely cookbook!

FTC Disclosure: I was not compensated for being in the book or publishing this post. I am just plain, old freaking (jumping up and down on the porch ripping open the Amazon packaging) excited to see my little blog in a book that I might find in a bookstore, the library and on WorldCat! Whoo hoo!

Pin It!
