Baking is a cakewalk with these beginner’s tips, tricks, and techniques
For a beginner, baking might seem like magic: mix the right ingredients, add heat, and watch a transformation happen before your eyes. But you don’t have to be a sorcerer to bake a flavorful pie, decadent layer cake, or pillowy loaf of bread. Beginner's Baking Bible walks you through all the essential techniques you’ll need to bake over 130 sweet and savory recipes―and get them right every time.
Learn the tools and staple ingredients you’ll need for baking (don’t worry, it’s not as much as you think). Pick up building block skills like measuring, mixing, kneading, creaming butter and sugar, and whipping egg whites. Soon, you’ll impress your family and friends with muffins, cookies, cakes, pies, quiches, and even savory galettes. Presto! You’re a baker.
In Beginner's Baking Bible, you’ll find:
  • 130+ tasty recipes―Learn to bake a wide range of recipes like Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, Bacon and Swiss Quiche, Jalapeño Cheddar Biscuits, Red Velvet Layer Cake, and more.
  • Start from scratch―Learn the simple baking techniques you’ll need to make every recipe, like melting chocolate and cutting butter into flour.
  • Tips and tricks―Helpful tips guide you with easy preparation, ingredient substitutions, and troubleshooting when your bake is in danger.
Easily bake everything from crisp oatmeal cookies to crusty French bread with Beginner's Baking Bible―no magic required.


This is a great book and with great simple recipes that are more than just basic. You can easily use them as foundations, and add ingredients, as your skill level increases. You have breads, muffins, pies, cheesecakes, tarts, cakes, cupcakes and more! There are recipes for all year, and even seasoned cooks will love this book for its simplicity! My only negative is that there are not enough photos- beginner baker's really need to see how ALL the recipes should look!  Great gift idea for kid bakers, and those learning to bake desserts, this is a book they will reach for over and over agaon! Be sure to add some baking needs, like measuring cups and spoons, and bowl, and you have a gift that will keep on giving, long after the holidays are over!


here's a simple recipe the kids can make, and you can sub in any favrite jam that you have handy. The bars are perfect for Christmas morning snacks, for keeping the kids from STARVING between breakfast and Christmas dinner, or to just have on hand during their holiday break!
