In this latest book from bestselling author and celebrity chef Anna Olson, the mystery of baking is revealed with 215 all-new recipes. Whether looking to bake a fundamental recipe like a basic shortbread cookie or brownie; or delving into a classic torte or an imaginative holiday dessert, Anna provides a reliable framework for all of your baking, with guaranteed success. With section on baking troubleshooting or tips on accurate measuring, Anna helps novice bakers bypass any kitchen disaster and move right on to produce perfect baked goods every time.

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

Read from the Book

Those of us who bake understand that baking is about a sense of satisfaction, a sense of sharing. Especially these days, when time is our most valuable commodity, taking the time to make something that doesn't just feed the family but is meant as a reward is a gift that can be as gratifying for the giver as it is for the receiver. If you're ready to feel that sense of satisfaction and sharing, then it's time to get back to baking.
