With her new book Snacking Cakes: Simple Treats for Anytime Cravings (Clarkson Potter, 2020; $22), writer, photographer and food stylist Yossy Arefi offers up a collection of everyday treats that can satisfy our collective sweet tooths (teeth?), any time of day. What exactly is a snacking cake, you might ask? It’s a single-layer cake, usually square, unadorned or covered with a simple icing, and easy to make. In other words, if you have a reasonably stocked pantry, a bowl and a whisk, you’re ready to go. The 50 recipes in Snacking Cakes cover the gamut of flavors, from bright citrusy olive oil cake to fudgy chocolate ones, to fruit- and veggie-packed cakes with crunchy toppings, vibrant glazes or billowy frostings. From Milk Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cake and Buttery Brown Sugar Pear and Cranberry Cake to Salty Caramel Peanut Cake, we can’t wait to try them all. Snacking Cakes is available here.
