Product Description

Review

“What a marvelous cookbook! Rosie’s exquisite gourmet marshmallows put her on the map (and fly off our shelves at Joan’s on Third). Her wonderful Butter Baked Goods is an essential, accessible book of baking, filled with Rosie’s delicious recipes for classic sweets—and beautiful photography that bring Butter home.”
—Joan McNamara, owner of Joan’s on Third, Los Angeles
 
"The Butter Baked Goods cookbook is as inviting as a bakeshop window. In reading the curated recipes and taking in the enticing photos, you will be convinced you can actually smell the goodies in the oven! Passionate home cooks know that baking is about that treasured process, and Rosie will have you rushing into the kitchen to bake."
—Anna Olson, Food Network host and author of Back to Baking
 
"From the taste, to the packaging, to the love baked into each item, Butter Baked Goods inspire a wonderful sense of nostalgia. These heartfelt, timeless recipes are sure to be enjoyed by generations to come, and with this book, readers can recreate the warmth of Butter Baked Goods in their own home." 
—DEAN & DELUCA
 
“Long before I met Rosie Daykin, I met her baked goods. The tarts, the cupcakes, the cookies, the various delectable bars that were all so incredibly delicious it became soul-crushing to choose one over the other. As regulars, we came to know Rosie—the sweetie behind the sweets—and it wasn’t long before we fell in love with her too. She’s an amazingly talented woman, and a wonderful human being. Still, if I had to choose between her and one of her Dream Bars, it’d be a tough call. Maybe with this cookbook I can make my own" 
—Brent Butt, actor, comedian and creator of Corner Gas
 
"The lost art of old-fashioned family baking is preserved and made simple, accessible and beautiful in Butter Baked Goods. This cookbook is a celebration of the memories shared through baking, with recipes that will have you running back to the cookie jar for more. Rosie has grown her business well beyond the bakery yet preserves the magic, keeping baking as it's meant to be—easy and totally delicious."
—Trish Magwood, chef and author of In My Mother's Kitchen

I have to admit I live in Vancouver and until a few months ago I had never been to the bakery on which this cookbook is based. I was treated to tea there by a friend and the food and every morsel of their baked goods were amazing.
I immediatley bought the cookbook and have been making delicious baked goods ever since.
The store in Dunbar area in Vancouver has high tea as well as baked goods for sale and the book reminds me of the shop itself -inviting and there is a great attention to even the smallest of details. As an example the book has a ribbon to hold your spot in the book and it has the "Butter" logo on it. The colours and lighting used to photograph the cakes, cookies and other treats makes you want to start baking right away. The first recipe I tried was the "Hello There, Doll Face" squares. The recipe only had six ingredients and the results were a pan of sqaures that were ridiculously easy to make and were so yummy that all the pieces disappeared very quickly. The recipe was made over and over at our home for the holidays and added to trays to give away to friends. I also made the "Chocolate Espresso Pound Cake" and it was so popular at work that I made small-sized bundt cakes for the office as Christmas gifts. The instructions are easy to follow and every recipe I have tried has turned out to look like the photogaphs in the book. The marshmallows (which is something the bakery is known for) are surprisingly simple to make if you follow the instructions. You will become a master baker and candy maker by using the recipes in this book and your friends will be very impressed. I am so happy with this purchase that I have ordered a dozen copies to give to friends for upcoming birthdays. I highly recommend this cookbook.

I have tried 6 recipes and everyone excellent so far. Bought for my daughter and she loves it also. Definitely not a low calorie cook book.

By Reader Writer Runner TOP 50 REVIEWER on May 22 2014
Format: Hardcover
From the time she could hold a wooden spoon, Rosie Daykin has called herself a baker. At the age of six, she knew that she would one day open her own bakery. In 2007, after 14 years as an interior designer and no formal training in the kitchen, Daykin opened Butter Baked Goods in Vancouver. The establishment has since expanded to two locations and some of its offerings (its signature marshmallows, most famously) now appear at retail locations all over North America and as far away as Japan.

Daykin's book displays a refreshingly straightforward approach, focusing on the kinds of treats people remember from childhood: cakes with buttercream frosting, classic pies, cookies and bars. Her recipes read easily and call for basic ingredients that most bakers will already have on hand. A beautiful colour photo accompanies each recipe and Daykin also includes photo-illustrations of baking methods, handling pastry and decorating cupcakes. She provides notes on how to stock your pantry, a glossary of tools and techniques and accurate but not-too-serious instructions ("cream the heck out of the butter and sugar").

The size of Daykin's products may appal home bakers; butterscotch scones, for instance, call for 5 cups of flour, 1 1/2 cups of butter and only yield ten scones! However, they can easily be cut smaller and baked for a shorter time. Whatever your baking skills, all "Butter's" recipes lie within reach. From snickerdoodles to shoo fly pie, PB and jelly cupcakes to chocolate buttercream and even to those famous marshmallows, Daykin's book contains something special for every sweet tooth.

FABULOUS book, both for the delicious recipes and the stunningly beautiful images. The Art Director/Designer should get an Academy Award for this book. ;-)
For many years I'd been trying to find cake and icing recipes that replicated those tasty treats I remembered from my childhood. THIS is that book. I've now made several of the scones, cookies and cakes and the basic butter cream has become my favourite "go-to" icing recipe. All the recipes I've attempted so far are easy to make (and delicious) and the directions are clear.
Thank you Rosie Daykin! Next time I'm in BC I'll certainly make time to visit the bake shop.

This is my favorite bakery in Vancouver. They make the most sublime marshmallows and baked goods. I cannot rave enough about their raspberry and strawberry marshmallows. We make special trips from our home in the suburbs to the west side of Vancouver quite often just to go there.

The true test of the cookbook though would be if I could replicate the taste and texture of the store bought baked goods when making them myself. My favorite cookie is the Big Sugar Cookie at Butter. I am thrilled to say that I have made these from the recipe in the book several times now and they taste exactly like my favorite cookies at Butter. Next I am going to try the Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie. And when I get really brave I am going to try making the marshmallows. These marshmallows are the marshmallows that they sell at Dean and Deluca in NYC as well as being the marshmallows that kicked off the new marshmallow trend.

The book is gorgeous! It is laid out beautifully and it has many pictures of the steps as well as of the finished products.

I cannot recommend this cookbook highly enough. Now if Maxie B in Greensboro, North Carolina would release a cookbook my sweet tooth fantasies would be complete!
