Cookbook Giveaway: Desserts from the Famous Loveless Cafe

From-scratch Banana Pudding is a simple, classic Southern dessert. Photographs by Karen Mordechai.


You don’t have to be a Southerner to appreciate the iconic desserts served up at the Nashville landmark, The Loveless Cafe, and highlighted in the new cookbook, Desserts from the Famous Loveless Cafe. The café opened in 1951 and became popular for fried chicken and biscuits, but in 2004 it was expanded and reopened with a dessert menu developed by the cafe’s new pastry chef, Culinary Institute of America graduate Alisa Huntsman. These are nostalgic, classic desserts like pies, puddings, cakes and cobblers – simple, easy and elegant, just like Mama (or someone’s “mama”) used to make.

This is the cookbook of my dreams: Every recipe looks beautiful and delicious, yet simple enough to throw together on a weeknight or on short notice. You can give a few sample recipes a spin with these Southern crowd-pleasers:

  • Loveless Banana Pudding – The base of this Southern classic is a simple from-scratch vanilla pudding that comes together in only 15 minutes.
  • Red Velvet Cake – A good amount of cocoa powder gives this cake a distinct chocolate flavor, but the festive red color makes it the perfect cake for holiday celebrations.

Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is an irresistible Southern staple, great for any celebration or get-together. Photographs by Karen Mordechai.
