Book Description

Nov. 1 2005
Every new book from Martha Stewart is cause for celebration, and with Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook, she returns to bring the pleasures of baking to readers at every level, from beginner to expert and beyond. A culinary compendium packed with more than 200 foolproof recipes for the best baked goods, Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook takes readers by the hand and guides them through the process of creating an irresistible variety of cakes, cookies, pies, tarts, breads, and much more.

This essential addition to every cook’s library is rich with tips, techniques, and the mouthwatering and stunning recipes for which Martha Stewart is so well known. Covering a delectable array of topics from simple to sophisticated, including biscuits, muffins, scones, cookies, layer cakes, specialty cakes, sweet and savory pies and tarts, and pastries and breads, she provides a dazzlingly delicious yet crystal-clear, vividly illustrated repertoire of recipes. There are cakes that are elegant enough for formal occasions, such as showers, weddings, and dinner parties, and basic favorites meant to be enjoyed every day and then passed down through the generations. Every chapter includes indispensable visual equipment glossaries and features vital make-ahead information and storage techniques. Organized for maximum clarity and practicality, the handbook also offers step-by-step how-to photographs that demystify even the most complex and nuanced techniques. These culinary building blocks will turn good bakers into great bakers, and make great bakers even better.

Filled with time-honored classics, such as Marble Cake with White-Chocolate Glaze, Apple Pie, Challah, Baba au Rhum, and Croissants, as well as lots of new surprises, Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook will be reached for again and again, no matter the season or occasion.

“Here, you will find the recipes and how-tos for the popovers you dream about, and for the simple crumb cake that you always want to whip up on Sunday morning, and for the double-chocolate brownie cookies that will make you a bigger hero with the after-school crowd, and for the citrus bars that you could only find in that little bakery that’s no longer under the same management. . . . Baking offers comfort and joy and something tangible to taste and savor. We all hope that these recipes provide you with years of pleasure.” —Martha Stewart

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Six years after Stewart's now classic Hors D'Oeuvres Handbook reinvented canapés, here is an end-of-the-meal sequel. General baking tips start things off, most of which are beginner focused ("Read a recipe all the way through"), along with an illustrated guide to baking equipment. Along with expertise, Stewart is also selling the fantasy of wealth; she keeps a vast collection of pots, pans and implements in her own pantry. At times, readers may wish she would offer more suggestions of substitutions for these tools and gadgets (for instance, nearly all the recipes require a stand-up mixer). All the same, this work is, as promised, an essential guide. The recipes include 42 different cookies and 30 cakes, plus pies, tarts, coffee cakes, scones, biscuits, muffins, crackers, bread, fine pastries and more. They range from Classic Apple Pie to twists on standards, like a Tarte Tatin that involves cooking the apples entirely in the oven (instead of on the stovetop) and international goodies like Torta della Nonna. Instructions and sidebars are exhaustive yet accessible. Naturally, the book is exquisitely designed, with beautiful food styling and the spare, closeup photography that's become a hallmark of Stewart publications. Additionally, Stewart includes instructions for decorative crusts, coconut shavings and pastry twists that make her creations look so appealing. (On sale Nov. 1)

From Booklist

This new volume may add to global warming as cooks all over the country start up their ovens to produce the extraordinary baked goods that Stewart proposes. Few of Stewart's recipes are completely original. Martha's genius rests in her uncanny ability to see a recipe in a novel way. Thus, her roulade has a filling of blackberry fool. Pineapple upside-down cake replaces the pineapple's core with mango. Caramel sticks cover the multiple chocolate layers of Dobos Torte. Rather than the little slices of banana customary inside ordinary banana cream pie, Stewart employs dramatic lengthwise slices. In addition to quick breads, Stewart offers yeast-raised loaves and buns, including focaccia, English muffins, croissants, and Danish pastries. Stewart's cookie recipes yield products suitable for gift giving. Illustrations throughout offer some guidance to the perplexed baker, but some recipes, such as the sfogliatelle, almost demand personal, step-by-step treatment. This is not an in-depth treatise on any one particular facet of the baker's art, but what Stewart chooses to deal with, she unfolds with care, grace, aplomb, and total mastery. Mark Knoblauch

4.0 out of 5 stars Martha as Teacher Aug. 28 2011
Martha doesn't know it, but when I decided to learn how to bake my first thought was Martha can teach me! I knew that Martha herself might be just a tad busy to come to Toronto to teach me how to bake, so instead I purchased Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. The first few pages are dedicated to the equipment you need to become a fabulous baker boy or girl. This was so helpful as I had not previously realized how essential many of the items are i.e. the right size pan, parchment paper or a dough scraper. The book is divided into chapters like quickbreads and muffins, cookies, cakes etc. Once you come to the recipes, the instructions are clear and easy to follow, and many of the recipes have pictures not only of the finished product, but some of the steps in between to teach you technique. Everything that I have made so far, came out delicious although maybe not as pretty as Martha's version. If you are interesed in my adventures with this book, and want to see and read about the recipes I have tried, you can read my blog at I would definitely recommend this book for any new bakers and those that want to learn new techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING.... May 23 2011
By Julia
As a rookie baker I only have one thing to say.... THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE BEST OUT THERE. Martha has done it again. This book is informative, well organized and the reciepes are easy enough for me and so delicious. Brownies, pound cake, black and white cooke and chocolate babka are among the recipes I have tackeled and for someone who has never baked anything in her 30 year life, until I got married 8 months ago, I was amazed at how well they all turned out.
Iwill keep this book by my side for years and years to come.
If you have Marthas Handbook you dont need any other baking book in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly extraordinary handbook March 7 2006
By Jordana
The photos and tips in this handbook are truly exquisite. Every recipe has a picture, which I find inspires my baking by giving me a goal (as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words). As well, the pictures of recommended kitchen tools is extremely helpful for the growing baker. It serves as a sort of checklist for me and my new kitchen. This book has exceeded my high expectations, and was one of the best Christmas gifts I have ever received. Highly recommended for any baker - novice or otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic work! March 27 2008
I've never seen a book devoted to baking that is as beautiful or as informative. Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook has some of the best recipes, from simple to more advanced to very challenging. Its effectiveness is its streamlined presentation, easy-to-follow recipes, beautiful photography and a helpful list of tools and techniques. I highly recommend this book to any baker, either the novice or the expert!

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good book Jan. 14 2009
This book has a great selection of recipes, however, quite a few of them use ingredients that are not commonly around the house, which is the only downfall of this book. Other than that, Martha lives up to expectations - excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of attention went into this particular book. Jan. 21 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have an extensive collection of culinary interests. This particular book of Martha is certainly with my 10 favourites so far. I wish her other books would have had the same attention and dedication. I just can't wait to have time to try more of the recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars waiting for the dvd now Aug. 23 2013
By Judy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this book and bought it especially for the yellow cake she shows on her dvd. I just want the dvd's to be released because I will buy them. Watching how to do it and having the book as well would be perfect. I will be keeping this book for my grandchildren, whichever one of them likes to cook. It's a wonderful book. Now please Martha, put the dvd's on sale too.
