You hear Better Homes And Gardens and know is going to be done well. Why would a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook be any different. Better Homes and Gardens Baking: Everything You Need to Know to Bake Like a Pro is just that. Besides the over four hundred recipes and beautiful photographs that have you drooling in anticipation, there are numerous techniques discussed and shown to give an amateur the ability to produce a product that can rival a professional's.
Now to discuss those over 400 recipes... Just from a picture I was drawn to make Sticky Pecan Upside-Down Baby Cakes. Let me tell you that these little cakes will be perfect for making uniform serving sizes, that is if you can manage to stop at just one. If that doesn't do it for you try the Make It Your Own Oatmeal Cookies. With a wide variety of optional ingredients you will soon have a new favorite. Discussions on mixing methods, utensils and pan forms, not to mention the results of using the different fat, sweeteners or dairy sources for the different needs of the varied recipes.
Better Homes and Gardens Baking: Everything You Need to Know to Bake Like a Pro is so much more than just a cookbook. Buy yourself a copy to keep hand when you want to bake and have everyone ask where on earth you purchased that pie, cake or tart. When they find out you made it yourself they will be asking you for your recipe. What you tell them is up to you.
