Back to Baking is about enjoying the process of baking itself, (making those extras that can have a place in a balanced diet), in modest portions. Making something from scratch gives you control. You know what you’re making, what’s going into the dish, and how it’s being prepared. Because these delights are homemade, the recipes can suit those with food intolerances and allergies. With entire chapters on dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and low-fat/low-sugar baking, this book has recipes for everyone you love.
Whether you’re a novice cook, perhaps a young person who wants to make your first batch of brownies, or a more adventurous baker who’s ready to tackle a wedding cake, this book provides fundamental formulas and guidelines, as well as sophisticated advice for any home baker. Try your hand at recipes such as:
- Chewy Molasses Cookies
- Delectable Fudge Brownies
- Two-Crust Caramel Apple Pie
- Raisin Butter Tarts
- Whole Wheat Carrot Sticky Buns
- Chocolate Layer Cake with Caramel Frosting.
