The title of this cookbook, “CakeLove in the Morning: Recipes for Muffins, Scones, Pancakes, Waffles, Biscuits, Frittatas, and Other Breakfast Treats,” pretty much sums it up. This is the cookbook you need to help you make just about any breakfast and brunch food. Warren Brown gave up a career in law to open the beloved D.C. bakery CakeLove. And now he shares these quintessential morning recipes in his third cookbook. I’ve been addicted to the blueberry pancakes; they’re so easy to make and have the perfect thick but fluffy texture. It’s not just about the sweets, as there’s a good balance of savory favorites like oven-roasted taters, bangers and mash and quiche Florentine, too. A good gift for Mom, but even better if you present it to her as part of the breakfast in bed that you prepare…from this book!
