Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For bakers with tiny urban kitchens who are short on time, or simply have an aversion to a sink full of dishes, Ruperti’s title is the ideal guide. Broken down by baked good—including muffins and scones, cookies, cupcakes, and party cakes—the book walks readers through more than 100 scratch-baking recipes that require only one—yes, one—bowl, with the majority of prebaking done in less than 15 minutes. Decadent, company-worthy selections that are designed to impress (and that suggest hours of work in the kitchen) include a chocolate tart with sea salt, sour cherry almond clafouti, and individual molten lava cakes. Muffins go beyond the basic blueberry or corn with recipes such as buttermilk cake-donut muffins, and peaches and cream streusel muffins. Headnotes include mini-memoir moments, ranging from the author’s high school days and waitressing days to her experiences as a pastry chef, personalizing this delightful, well-designed and well-photographed title. Agent: Judy Linden, Stonesong. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
“I love my stand mixer, but the concept of this book is hard to resist. … This is a great gift for a novice baker or anyone who prefers to be unplugged in the kitchen.”
Chosen as one of the Best Baking Books for 2013- Bakepedia - The Baker's Resource ®

“We’d like to give Yvonne Ruperti, author of One Bowl Baking, a collective fist bump. She’s put together a cookbook filled with uncomplicated treats that don’t involve hand mixers, stand mixers, or food processors. Plus, many of the recipes come together in about 15 minutes. Perfect for those of us who are busy—a.k.a. all of us.”
Redbook

“Whether you’re a novice baker just looking to make a pan of brownies or an experienced one intending to bake multiple, crowd-pleasing treats, "One Bowl Baking" rises to the occasion.”
The Christian Science Monitor

"For bakers with tiny urban kitchens who are short on time, or simply have an aversion to a sink full of dishes, Ruperti’s title is the ideal guide... Headnotes include mini-memoir moments, ranging from the author’s high school days and waitressing days to her experiences as a pastry chef, personalizing this delightful, well-designed and well-photographed title."
Publishers Weekly

“A dream book for beginners who can follow a sequence of directions or ganache-making pros who can appreciate the nuances between muffin and cake batter.”
-Austin American-Statesman

Library Journal
10/15/2013
When you're craving sweets, not dirty dishes, turn to Ruperti's new collection of recipes for baked goods prepared in a single mixing bowl. Simpler and more visually appealing than Nicole Rees's Baking Unplugged, this book includes several recipes mixed directly in the pan in which they're baked and charming "tiny cakes" perfect for small parties. Oatmeal raisin scones and classic chocolate chip cookies aren't the best you'll ever eat, but they're so convenient, you'll hardly notice. Ruperti (The Complete Idiot's Guide to Easy Artisan Bread), who previously worked for the television show America's Test Kitchen, recommends a digital scale for accuracy. VERDICT Highly recommended for weeknight and last-minute baking, especially for readers with small, unequipped kitchens.

    I love to bake, but as a stay-at-home homeschooling mom of four,

    I love to bake, but as a stay-at-home homeschooling mom of four, sometimes the time just isn't there for more than something super quick. That's where "One Bowl Baking" comes in. Mostly quick, easy recipes for scrumptious desserts, this is definitely a go to cookbook for when you need a dessert fast! There's a great range as well with everything from Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies, to Peaches and Cream Streusel Muffins, Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Brownie Cupcakes and Triple Chocolate Blackout Cake with Espresso Ganache (okay, I just put on 5 lbs TYPING that!). Most of the recipes are super easy to follow. My 13-year-old daughter made the Chunky Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies and they turned out amazing!!

    I think the author really hit the mark with this cookbook. Great recipes, good photos (though not for every single recipe) and a nice sized book that works well in the kitchen.

    I received a copy of this book from Running Press for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I love this book. I own a lot of cookbooks and I'll say this i

    I love this book. I own a lot of cookbooks and I'll say this is my second or third favorite. My only complaint is that it needs a lot more photos. The recipes are simple, not fancy, difficult, or time consuming. If you've never baked from scratch, or never even used a hand mixer before you'll have zero trouble understanding the recipes. Like most cookbooks this has useful information about baking ingredients and pans/equipment at the beginning and an ever-useful index in the back. Most of these recipes use all-purpose flour and just a few use cake flour. For the one I made that called for cake flour I used all-purpose flour, making the proper adjustments.I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
