Read an Excerpt

Introduction

When we first opened the Magnolia Bakery, I imagined a cozy, old-fashioned shop where people could come for a cup of coffee and something sweet. I expected our customers to include some local regulars and lots of neighborhood families. I thought we'd close at seven each evening so I could go home and make dinner. I never expected that Magnolia would turn into a city-wide hangout, much less that on weekend nights there would be lines out the door!

The bakery is busier now than ever. Our customers stop by as much for the feel of the store as they do for the desserts. With its vintage American decor and desserts, customers often tell me that walking into the bakery is just like stepping back in time to their grandmother's kitchen. They come in for a slice of cake and end up with a little piece of their childhood. Many want to meet me to say thanks for making the red velvet cake they remember from church picnics or the banana pudding just like their mom used to make.

Since the publication of The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook, many people have suggested that I do a second book. While working full-time at the bakery, the idea of writing another cookbook seemed impossible. Finally, after putting together a committed staff at the shop, we were able to move full-time to our country house, and I could really consider the idea, knowing that I would have the time and energy necessary to write the book I wanted to write.

The kitchen in my house is the one I've always dreamed of having. It's a big country kitchen with a window over the double white enamel sink that looks out on my vegetable garden and the cornfields beyond. The walls are painted pale yellow, and the glass-fronted cabinets, filled with vintage dishware and linens, are a creamy white. I have a counter just for baking that holds my 1950s Sunbeam Mixmaster, and there is a big enamel table that sits in the middle of the room, which is the perfect place for rolling out piecrusts.

Being able to work on the book in the country has turned out to be a wonderful experience. It's been great to be able to work on ideas for recipes while sitting on the back porch and then go straight into the kitchen to try them out. I like to create recipes in an old-fashioned style, but with new ideas and perhaps different combinations of ingredients to keep things interesting and fun.

These classic American desserts reflect the sensibilities of the bakery and my home. They aren't fussy or difficult — they're simply my favorites.

    Love Magnolia!!

    This is my go-to cookbook for the best cupcakes I've ever tasted! I've made them for everything from a quick gift to cheer up a friend to a huge formal party and gotten rave reviews every time. The instructions are clear, concise and practical. The photographs are beautiful and inspiring and the end result is amazing!!

    More from Magnolia

    New York's Magnolia Bakery was already attracting queues around the block for its famous cupcakes when, in 2000, Carrie came calling. Business boomed when the lead character of the hit TV series Sex And The City nibbled one of its cupcakes in an episode. It sparked a cupcake craze across the United States. In this second cookbook banking on the Magnolia brand, founder Allysa Torey shares the recipes for her famous cupcakes - and they were a revelation. The vanilla cupcake I made was one of the best that's come out of my own. The chocolate version was even better, with a miraculously light and melting texture. The downside to this book is that if you¿re interested in cakes and cupcakes, there are only 11 recipes for them. The other 52 are for breads, buns, cookies, pies, tarts, cheesecakes and ice cream. But with the two basic cupcakes turning out so well, I'm eager to try just about any recipe that comes from Torey.

    I purchased both The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook and More From Magnolia, most of the recipes were all in the Complete Magnolia Cookbook.

    BANANA PUDDING!!

    It is worth buying the cookbook for the Banana Pudding recipe alone, but there are MANY other great recipes as well. Every recipe that I have made from this cookbook has received rave reviews. I travel to NY for business quite often and I always make time to go to the Village and visit Magnolia.

    Magnificent Magnolia!

    I went to the Magnolia Bakery in NYC and, after tasting one of those cupcakes, have not been able to stop thinking about them. Unfortunately, I do not live in NYC and cannot get them very easily. This cookbook gave me the same great tasting cupcake and made me a HUGE hit at the party I brought them to. I highly recommend this innovative and easy to make cookbook!
