After a long internet search looking for the perfect banana bread recipe, I stumbled across the Flour's famous recipe which has proven to be the absolute best banana bread I have ever made but also that I have ever eaten. Of course, that is not because of any exceptional skill on my part but rather the fantastic recipe. Based on this success, I decided to search the origins of the recipe and came across this book.
There are some amazing cakes and bread recipes here. A beautiful bundt cake that perfectly marries cranberries, pecans, pumpkin and maple syrup. Even my hardcore, anti-pumpkin children devour it happily. Another recipe that has become a firm favourite is the chocolate cupcake recipe. I'm sure many bakers have tried many different recipes for the quintessential chocolate cupcake. Well, like Flour's banana bread, their cupcakes are now the family favourite and will be baked at least every birthday and holiday. The perfect balance of moistness and flavour and again, very easy.
The recipes in this book are easy enough for anyone to bake - even novices. I have rarely come across a recipe book that has, in a short space of time, had such a positive impact producing so many firm favourites. The apple spice cake and the version of tiramisu are also both out of this world producing unique versions of classics that are easy to make and taste sublime.
Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys baking but also to those who want to impress and spoil their friends and family with some very special treats.
A lively and informative book with recipes to match. Good illustrations and well layed out, in sections for breakfast recipes, biscuits, cakes, pies and tarts, puddings and breads.It includes classics like creme brulee and clafoutis, croissants and doughnuts with new recipes like raspberry crumb bar and roasted pear and cranberry crostata. I would strongly recommend.
This book is absolutely great.All of her recipes are more of a home style recipe; i mean like cakes, cookies, cinnamon buns, doughnuts... Each recipe is interesting, it inspires you to bake more, be better. The way she explains everything in steps and numbers is perfect. She also includes measurements in cups but in grams as well. This book teaches you how to be a perfect home baker, how to create a bakery in your own house. I have tried several of her recipes and all came out perfectly and i dont really think is because i am a great baker but because of her precise, safeproof recipes you cant go wrong and the result is absolutely stunning! Each recipe has a story. If you want a book to teach you how to bake bakery style this is for you. Spectacular.
Bought this book after watching James Martin in United Cakes of America, he went to Joanne Changs bakery in Boston, liked the look of her cakes and recipes. Some lovely american classics in the book, recipes are in Cups and grams.plenty of pictures throughout the book. Overall, I am very pleased with this book.
Love this book it is very professionally put together... it has very tempting recipes on every page .... makes good reading especially on a cold winters night ... great gift idea for the serious baker:0)
The recipes are well written and easy to follow. Everything I’ve made from the book has turned out really well and it’s become my go-to book for baking. I like that many of the recipes have instructions for doing some of the steps ahead of time. Although the recipes show measurements in both weight and cups and some of them include instructions for hand mixing the book is best suited to someone whose kitchen is equipped with a digital scale and a stand mixer.
