Book Description

Oct. 1 2009
This brand-new title in Barron's lavish series of palate-pleasing and recipe-filled Golden Books conjures up those wonderful pastry shops of Paris--rich with heavenly aromas and delights that gratify both the eye and the taste buds. The Golden Book of Baking presents 300 glorious recipes and color photos that guide home chefs toward perfection in the art of creating and enjoying the very finest baked delicacies. The kitchen-proven recipes are categorized as follows:

  • Cookies, Bars, and Brownies: raspberry delights, Bavarian apple cones, marbled cream cheese squares, and many more
  • Small Cakes: apple and pecan cupcakes, strawberry cream cupcakes, pecan and banana friands, and many more
  • Butter Cakes: basic pound cake, double chocolate pound cake, pecan crunch yogurt cake, upside-down apple cake, and many more
  • Layer Cakes: tricolored cake, Black Forest cake, strawberry cream gâteau, and many more
  • Pies and Tarts: lemon and lime meringue pie, chocolate and hazelnut tart, fruits of the forest pie, coconut cream tart, and many more
  • Pastries: almond bows, coffee éclaires, almond and walnut baklava, peach puff, and many more
  • Yeast Cakes: apple crumble kuchen, stollen, brioche, chocolate chelsea buns, and many more
  • Savories: scones, spicy Thai rolls, pepper and olive tart, ham and onion spirals, and many more

    This book's team of three expert authors have graded their recipes for classic and modern baked delicacies on a scale of 1, 2, and 3 to indicate level of difficulty. Most recipes fall into categories 1 and 2, but adventurous home chefs who think they can match the expertise of Paris's finest pâtisseries are invited to test their skill by attempting challenging recipes like the Red Fruit Dacquoise layer cake, or a baking sheet filled with authentically French Chocolate Éclairs! The book's introduction includes important recommendations regarding ingredients, preparation methods, and baking equipment. More than 300 full-page, taste-tempting color photos show each baked delicacy, fresh from the oven and ready to serve and enjoy. This handsome volume features a ribbon place marker and gold-tipped page edges.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy yum yum! Dec 4 2009
    By Celise - Published on Amazon.com
    Every page in this book has a picture of something to make you drool. The only difficulty is deciding which recipe to try first. I'm starting with the white chocolate/raspberry muffins!

    If you like to bake this belongs in your library. It contains the traditional things like carrot cake and scones, but the real beauty of this book is all the more unusual recipes that you don't see just anywhere, like the plum and amaretti crunch tart or the passion fruit cupcakes.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book Jan. 9 2010
    By Kathleen Elder - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    My 13 year old granddaughter picked this book for a Christmas gift. She has been inspired to learn how to bake from watching TV cooking shows and can really make things that look like the picture. She liked the format of one large color photo next to one recipe on a page. The price on Amazon was way below the book store and I bought all my books on line so I wouldn't have to carry them when shopping. They are very heavy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Pure indulgence and gorgeous too Dec 12 2009
    By Lynn Harnett - Published on Amazon.com
    For bakers who like to feast their eyes, this latest in Barrons' Golden Books series features more than 300 full-page color pictures to accompany 300 traditional and modern recipes.

    A handsome, chunky book with gilt-edged pages and a ribbon place mark, its focus is on desserts, with a last chapter devoted to savories like Mini Leek and Potato Strudels or Spinach and Feta Muffins.

    There are four chapters devoted to cakes, including yeast cakes like Kulich (Russian fruit cake) and Tuscan Harvest Bread. Pies, pastries, and cookies cover the rest.

    Each recipe includes prep and cooking time and a 1 to 3 scale of difficulty, with most falling into the easier categories: Basic Pound Cake, 1, Cherry Almond Strudel, 2, Bavarian Apple Cones, 3.

    From plain and simple to extravagant, this book covers the gamut and the exquisite photos provide inspiration.
