Your Time to Bake
A First Cookbook for the Novice BakerBook - 2012
Best-selling author and talented cook Robert Blakeslee has done it again. In Your Time to Cook , Robert crafted a true "first" cookbook that teaches kitchen basics and cooking fundamentals. Now, with Your Time to Bake , he has taken the same comprehensive approach to turn non-bakers into successful creators of cakes, cookies, pies, and other delectable baked goods.
The book begins with helpful information on baking essentials--ingredients, equipment, and common baking techniques and terms. A fantastic array of easy-to-prepare recipes follows, including a delectable assortment of cookies, brownies, pies and tarts, cheesecakes, muffins, quick breads, and puff pastry creations, as well as luscious frostings, fillings, and toppings. Each recipe includes step-by-step instructions accompanied by beautiful fullcolor photos to ensure that even the most inexperienced baker enjoys success every time. A chapter devoted entirely to decorating techniques guides you in putting the icing on the cake--as well as the frosting, edible fondant flowers, and much, much more.
Here is the perfect blend of instruction, advice, and humor to make the art of baking both easy and enjoyable.
