Overview

Built on the success of the first book, this all new-edition of the best-selling baking binder offers 725 recipes perfect for baking at home. Sure to appeal to both those who have never baked and those looking to expand their skill set, it contains four brand-new chapters: a cupcake chapter, a coffee cakes and sweet rolls chapter, an almost homemade chapter that shows recipes made with convenience products, and a trimmed-down favorites chapter filled with delicious lighter recipes. This book is all about baking-from cookies, bars, and cakes to yeast breads, lighter baking and special holiday baking, including:

Best Chocolate Cake Recipe
Caramel Pecan Cheesecake
Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Brownies
Banana Nut Bread
Spice Cupcakes with Mocha Frosting
Walnut Pear Coffee Cake
Walnut- Caramel Sticky Buns
Upside-Down Apple Pie
Shortbread Ornament Cookies
Raspberry Cream Muffins

Some recipes are highlighted as Cooks Who Care recipes, an initiative that often caters to large groups who are in need-these recipes are great for any large crowd. Each and every recipe in the book originates from the Taste of Home kitchen, experts from the world's largest cooking magazine. The 5- ring binder lies flat when open and includes snap-in splash guards to protect the pages from food spills, and chapter tab dividers with a chapter index for quick reference. And with over 725 photos that illustrate mixing and baking methods and the delectable baked results, even the inexperienced baker will be well on their way to a delicious outcome.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This all-new edition of Taste of Home's baking book contains 725 recipes with easy-to-follow instructions, four new sections, including one on cupcakes. The book's chapter titles demonstrate its range: "Baking Basics," "Cookies," "Bars & Brownies," "Cakes," "Cheesecakes," "Pies & Tarts," "Desserts," "Quick Breads," "Muffins, Biscuits & Cones," "Savory Yeast Breads," "Sweet Yeast," "Breads," "Fanciful Creations," and "Holiday Baking." (P.S. For sheer self-indulgence, try the Caramel Cheesecake and the Butterscotch Peanut Bars.)

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

Packed with over 780 home-tested recipes for every conceivable baked good, home bakers will never be at a loss for ideas with this voluminous collection on their shelf. Smartly organized in a three ring binder with tabbed sections and page protectors, readers in the mood for a particular sweet can find relevant sections quickly and easily. Once there, they'll find a litany of choices: 10 chocolate cakes, 17 cupcakes, 40 cheesecakes, and so on. Emphasizing practicality over novelty (all recipes are reader-submitted), the editors focus on breadth rather than depth (singular recipes for certain items instead of multiple variations), giving readers plenty of options. Those pressed for time or unsure of their abilities will appreciate the "Almost Homemade" section, with its jazzed-up cake, pudding, and brownie mixes as well as riffs on refrigerated cookie dough, and the brief but useful tips on everything from kneading yeast breads, filling cupcakes, and troubleshooting puff pastry will encourage experimentation while easing fears. Given the book's scope, this is one home bakers can grow with.
