This baking cookbook from Food52 is absolutely wonderful!
I can't say enough good things about it.
The size is perfect. It isn't too thick, or too tall. It has just the right amount of recipes with a great variety of yummies to bake up in a jiff. And the best part? There is a photograph of each recipe! This is very important to me. I mean, we all eat with our eyes first and if we can't see what it looks like, odds are we won't try to make it...at least I know I won't!
My two personal favorite recipes so far that I have had to bake would be the Pumpkin Tart (seriously this is absolutely delicious and a must bake for any pumpkin lover!) And a classic recipe that reminds me of my grandma; Tender Yellow Cake with Bittersweet Chocolate Frosting. Can a recipe get more classy than that?
Each recipe has the ingredients laid out on the left side of the page with the directions numbered next to it. Everything is broken down and tips are inserted where they are appropriate (such as recipes calling for whipping cream).
The breakdown of contents are easily indexed and I found myself drooling over each and every recipe title.
Breakfast Goods, Cookies & Bars, Fruit Desserts, Custardy Caked & Puddings, Everyday Cakes, Special Occasion Cakes, Savory Baked Goods.
I mean YUM! Just those content headings get me in the mood to bake!
This book is full of classic recipes that anyone should have in their recipe collection.
