An Epicurious and Tasting Table Fall Pick. “A beautiful and thoughtful master class on how to bake your cake and eat it too.”—Carla Hall, TV chef and author of Carla Hall’s Soul Food After more than a dozen years developing recipes for food and health magazines and collaborating with noted pastry chefs, Genevieve Ko was determined to create treats that were just as indulgent as their original counterparts, as well as more full flavored and nourishing. In a word, better. Healthful oils prove superior to butter, giving Mocha Chip Cookies crisp shells and molten insides, liberating the citrus in Lemon Layer Cake with Olive Oil Curd, and tenderizing Melting Walnut Snowballs. Refined white sugar pales beside concentrated sweeteners like pure maple syrup, brown sugar, and molasses in muffins and granola. Pomegranate Pistachio Baklava uses reduced pomegranate syrup instead of the usual saccharine one. Nubby flours with personality—whole wheat, spelt, rye, buckwheat, graham flour, and almond flour—bring richness to such desserts as Glazed Apple Cider Doughnuts. And pureed fruits and vegetables (beets in Red Velvet Roulade with Strawberry Cream Cheese; grated zucchini in Chocolate School Party Sheet Cake) keep desserts extra moist. “The best baking book I have seen in many years.”—Sarabeth Levine, James Beard Award-winning pastry chef and restaurant owner “Ingenious recasting of favorite recipes.”—Entertainment Weekly “Motivated to update classics with more alternative flours and less sugar, Ko has created some of the most innovative flavor combinations you’ll find in a baking book, such as Fennel and Currant Corn Bread; Buckwheat Almond Apple Cake; Toasted Walnut and Grape Clafoutis; Chestnut Kisses.”—The Washington Post

The Fundamentals of Better Baking is the only guide beginners will ever need in order to grasp the basics of baking, and build on that knowledge to craft their own desserts. Through 60 decadent recipes, Justine Doiron covers the full, sweet spectrum of cakes and breads, cookies, biscuits and more, with detailed prefaces to each section that explain what sets them apart. In addition to learning things like the difference between pastry and biscuits or which classic cookie mistakes to avoid, readers are given basic formulas for each type of dessert: for example, the elusive pie dough is nothing more than flour, fat, salt, liquid and optional flavorings. Flour, leavener, fat, sweetener and a binder make up the structure of almost any cookie. These recipes are broken down so that readers not only understand the process, but are able to adjust and play with them to create their own. Family and friends will be impressed with treats like Candied Orange Cookies and Mimosa Muffins; Churro Squares and Classic Brioches will make show-stopping snacks and breakfast offerings, while recipes like Piña Colada Mug Cake and The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies will be sure to delight even those who don’t have a sweet tooth. Readers will never again be intimidated about trying their hands at baked goods. The Fundamentals of Better Baking will help ensure these breathtaking creations come out right—every single time.
