“I know what you’re thinking,” Denise Gee says about “Yes, Sauerkraut Cake,” a specialty of Central Texas. “But you’re wrong, my friend.” The “secret” ingredient makes this cake moist and has all who try it coming back for more. Funny and informative, Denise’s headnotes expand delightfully on what are downright delicious recipes for every kind of sweet in Texas, from Neiman Marcus “Sock It to Me” Cakettes that are “super rich, like the folks who shop there” to Almond Flan “with a texture akin to cool sliceable velvet.” Along with a quirky collection of native Texas desserts, regional businesses such as Blue Bell Creameries and Threadgill’s gas-station-turned-beer-joint are presented with Texas-size pride.
