Overview

The Brown Betty Cookbook: Modern Vintage Desserts and Stories from Philadelphia's Best Bakery by Norrinda Brown Hayat, Linda Hinton Brown


The first cookbook from Philadelphia's phenomenal Brown Betty Dessert Boutique

When three generations of African-American women decided to open a bakery in Philadelphia, they had no idea how quickly the accolades would come. With high praise from Rachael Ray magazine and other corners of the culinary world, the Brown Betty Dessert Boutique has found fame with their amazing poundcakes, cheesecakes, pies, and cookies, among other delectable treats.

This delicious cookbook features both the secret recipes that Brown Betty's fans can't wait to get their hands on, as well as the personal stories that explain the evocative names of such recipes as Alice's Two Step and Strawberry Letter.

  • Features recipes that combine old-fashioned treats with thrilling contemporary flavors like sweet potato poundcake and dark cherry cheesecake
  • Includes gorgeous and mouthwatering full-color photography throughout

For home bakers who want to experience the best of Brown Betty in their own homes or dessert-lovers looking for something new, The Brown Betty Cookbook offers both inspiration and delectation.

So far I have made 3 of the recipes. All 3 turned out great. They were easy to follow and the pictures are a plus. If you like to bake this is a great book to own.
