We rated this book:


Fix Me a Plate is Food Blogger and Chef Scotty Scott’s first cookbook that features traditional and new school soul food recipes in categories of breakfast, meat, soul, desserts, and sauces. The recipes include detailed pictures along with a complete and easy-to-follow set of instructions to make some yummy meals that are sure to please those who are in touch with their inner foody. Breakfast meals include Southern Raised Biscuits with Spicy Sausage Cream Gravy and Sunday Waffles; meat includes Chicken and Garlic Butter Dumplings and Soul Satisfying Spaghetti; soul includes Cajun Red Bean Burgers and Avocado Toast with Pecan Smoked Chicken, and dessert includes Peachy Keen Cobbler and Blueberry Hand Pies.

I tried making Kentucky Butter Cake. To make this cake, it’s slightly more difficult than a box cake and the batter is surprisingly thick. The ingredients are all common, minus rum extract that I don’t normally have in stock. The cake takes a while to bake, and when it came out it reminded me of cornbread even though there is no cornmeal and a bit of sugar and flour included. The butter sauce is basically butter and sugar, but overall it makes for a filling and soul-satisfying dessert.
