The Cake Book by Rebecca Firth is an approachable and brilliant collection of delicious recipes. As a big fan of brunch, I’m excited to see an entire chapter dedicated to cakes perfect for the occasion. The Blackberry-Lime Breakfast Cake was excellent alongside a glass of champagne, as Rebecca suggests. I hope you love this book as much as I do.
