Let Chef Belinda enhance your sweets menu with her warm hospitality, cooking tips, and approximately 100 flavor-packed recipes for decadent southern desserts and treats.
There is a little bit of “Southerner” in all of us! You don’t have to be from the South to embrace the food—especially the sweets. There is just something about Southern treats that appeal to the hearts, souls, and stomachs of everyone! Just think of decadent, sweet delights filled with lots of sugar, butter, nuts, and fruit, or dripping with chocolate, caramel, whipped cream, and yes, even bourbon! Let Southern Sugar transport you back to your “Southern” roots by reintroducing you to some of the favorites that you may have forgotten and fresh takes on Southern classics. From modest afternoon Tea Cakes and Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies to “can’t push back from the table” Coconut Sweet Potato Pie and Mississippi Mud Cake.
With 100 satisfying recipes, the cookbook is divided up into chapters that focus on cakes, pound cakes, cheesecakes, pies, ice creams, candies, cookies and brownies, and cocktails and mocktails.
