Ok, so quite an open topic but I am getting excited about her new book!!  I love all of her other books and this one is sure to please.  I hope that in her new book she likens it to TCB.  I really liked how the recipe stated how much was made and the storing conditions.  The recipe I would like to see would have to be…trifles.  I love them, they are such a holiday staple but I have exhausted my creativity towards creating new combinations.  Oh, I would also like a really good lemon layer cake.  I love the sour cream poppyseed lemon cake from RHC but I would like a layer cake that didn’t have to be syruped.

What would you like in the new cookbook?

This should be a fun topic…I would love to hear what others would like!

I would love to see Rose’s take on Opera Cake and Dobos Torte. These are both on my “to make” list but I’ve hesitated because they are so labour intensive. I’d be more prepared to try them if I had Rose walking me through the steps. Perhaps a Kugelhopf/sweet yeast cake recipe (that doesn’t require syrup) as well…

- I would like to see the side notes (length at room temp, etc.) return as from TCB. 
- a rum cake similar to the Bacardi rum cake made from box but from scratch
- I agree a lemon layer cake would be great. 
- bread pudding (or have I missed something from one of her other books)

Well, I suppose I have to think on this some more.  I am sure I will love the book whatever is in it.

Great Topic!  I am on a personal quest for:
1)  Chewy chocolate chip cookie (plain..no nuts)
2)  Oatmeal Raisin Cookie—chewy but outside crisp
3)  Cinnamon Roll (not a sticky bun)—I’ve never had a cinnabon, but I suppose something like them.  One that retains a buttery gooey filling and a less rich bread than brioche.
4)  A dense, ultramoist, dark chocolate cake.  I always envision with a crackled top—probably the closest in her books so far is the Miette Tomboy. 
5)  More whole grain bread recipes.
6)  Swiss Meringue buttercream.
7)  A dietary restrictions section (Dairy free, gluten free, etc.—but this is asking the world grin

I too would love the return of the side notes from PPB and TCB.  Also, final temperatures for cakes, cheesecakes, etc.  Even if there are other cues to test for doneness, the temperature is a measurable way of testing for doneness.  As far as a good lemon cake, I have made the Lemon Chiffon from TCB and baked as a layer cake as per the Orange Layer Chiffon in RHC —delicious!  I think this will be a great book for starting bakers as I think a baking book is far less intimidating than a whole book on cakes or pastry!

Would love to see internal temperatures for every baked good smile

I’ve been longing for a brioche/panettone recipe that separates into strands- had one several years ago and have been wanting to recreate it ever since.  It was leaps and bounds better than any other brioche-type recipe I had previously encountered.

I’m sure I’ll think of more, but that’s a start!

A strawberry cake yes!!!  I wanted to create a neopolitan cake recently and could not figure out how to strawberry cake…most everything I found used a box mix and gelatin. 

A super moist chocolate butter cake. —My favorite (and most popular) chocolate cake is from Food and Wine (years ago).

I would like to see a strawberry cake or a Neapolitan cake.

What I have in mind is something like this (Neapolitan):
http://sweetapolita.com/2011/01/neapolitan-5-layer-birthday-cake-with-strawberry-frosting/

and like this (strawberry):
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/simply-delicious-strawberry-cake-recipe/index.html

The latter one uses a cake mix but it is very popular with great reviews.

I think this is a great topic. I think Rose should have asked us this question since we are the ones who are going to be buying her book, but she didn’t… oh well.

I would like to see some comfort food baking like buckles and coffee cakes. Nothing fancy, just good baking for the family. Some savory recipes would be nice too. And recipes using different flours such as whole wheat, coconut, etc.

Hi,

I would love to see recipes for cakes that are gluten free. There are so many people that need gluten free but would love to have cakes.
