The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook: Old Fashioned Recipes From New Yorks Sweetest Bakery by Jennifer Appel, Allysa Torey

As Time Out New York says: “The secret to Magnolia's success is simple: Nobody knows how to bake like this anymore.” Magnolia's owners Jennifer Appel and Allysa Torey know how, and in The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook they share their most mouth-watering recipes

On the corner of Bleecker and Eleventh Streets in the heart of Greenwich Village sits the Magnolia Bakery. This unassuming shop, where the smells of home-style baking weaken even the strongest will, has attracted a clientele that ranges from kids on their way home from school to celebrity glitterati. Cupcakes swirled with pastel frosting crowd the counter, and cakestands display Lemon Vanilla Bundt Cake, Apple Walnut Cake with Caramel Cream Cheese Icing, and Coconut Layer Cake, swathed in fluffy white frosting and covered in drifts of coconut. As Time Out New York says: “The secret to Magnolia's success is simple: Nobody knows how to bake like this anymore.”

Magnolia's owners Jennifer Appel and Allysa Torey know how, and in The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook they share their most mouth-watering recipes, from sweet breakfast treats like Dried-Cherry Crumb Buns to classic Iced Molasses Cookies, from decadently rich Caramel Pecan Brownies and Raspberry Marzipan Cheesecake to refreshing Lemon Icebox Pie. Their easy-to-follow recipes and invaluable baking hints mean that even the inexperienced baker will be able to frost the perfect layer cake, turn out the flakiest pie crust, and whip up the creamiest cheesecake. Illustrated with eight pages of glorious color photographs, The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook will inspire you to turn on the oven and create sweet memories for your family and friends.

I have baked about 5 or more cakes using the recipes and most of them came out really tasty. Some better the 2nd time around. The blueberry muffin recipe was tastless to me, I've tried other recipes & had better results, a lot better. The Vanilla Cake has become very popular among my family & friends. It's my daughter's fav, I love the Chocolate Buttermilk recipe w/Chocolate Buttercream! The recipes are simple & easy to follow steps. I've been baking for years & refer to this book, regularly. The only ingredient that was almost impossible to find(they use it often)the Vanilla Chips, I tried many, many websites. I just used a substitute. Also, they use lots of sugar so dieters beware!

My daughters birthday was around the corner and I wanted to bake her cake so I was looking around for a bakers book. I read some of the reviews and decided on this book and boy was it a great buy. I haven't stopped baking. The recipes are easy to follow and the results are fabulous.

This book was recently given to me as a birthday present and already it has become a favorite cookbook. The cakes taste gourmet but are easy to make.

I bought this book based on the positive reviews from other customers. What a find! The recipies are so simple yet so sophisticated that I cannot wait to make each and everything in the book. It has quickly become my favorite book. If you are looking for a great book to learn how to bake or if you are looking for something to add to you collection, this book is it! I can't wait to start baking these recipies.

Even though I LOVE to bake, I don't have much experience. But every single time I back the Traditional Vanilla Birthday with Buttercream Icing people tell me I should sell them. It's THAT good. And super-easy too. I refuse to tell anyone my 'secret recipe' and when my mom (who collects cookbooks) came to visit I hid the book so she couldn't copy it down! It's the only thing I've made in the book but even just for that one recipe the book is definitely a must-buy!

It is true, this cookbook is fantastic. I made the Hummingbird Cake for my mother's bday and everyone flipped their wig! I have made four other recipes since then and they were all hits. This is my new favorite cookbook to give brides and fellow bakers. Buy it! It is outstanding.

Made the Devils food cake and chocolate buttercream frosting. Delightfully good! Have 30 cookbooks and this is one of my all time favorites.

Most cake-loving New Yorkers know that Jennifer Appell co-founded Magnolia then left to found Buttercup Bake Shop, but beware. As is usually the case, the sequel never matches the caliber of the original. The Magnolia bakery and cookbook are true delights to any sweets lovers! Buttercup, on the other hand, features dry cakes with mounds of crusty icing, and the recipe book is filled with some real head scratchers (12 tbsp. of Crisco to top a coffee cake? Trust me, it's terrible!)If you can't decide between the Magnolia or Buttercup cookbooks, go for the original Magnolia recipes! I promise you won't be disappointed!!

I liked the simplicity of the recipes both in ingredients and procedure. I purchased it two weeks ago and have already tried four recipes with wonderful results. The Chocolate Chip Cookies are excellent and worked well with some of my substitutions. The Lemon Cake with Lemon Buttercream and Lemon Curd Filling is a lemon-lover's delight.
