Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–8—Divided into four sections ("Cookies and Baked Goods," "Doughs," "Cakes," and "Pastries"), this volume has more than 50 recipes and an attractive and colorful design. The majority of the dishes are sweet, with several savories also included. Recipes are clearly labeled for difficulty, prep time, and cooking time. In addition, there are safety tips, cleanliness advice, a decent glossary, and a spread with decoration ideas. Variations are given for many of the dishes, a feature that might spark individual creativity. The wonderful photographs clearly show many of the steps of the sometimes complicated but tasty-looking recipes. With so much going for it, it's too bad that a close look reveals some detail problems. In the front matter, the author states that the recipes provide both Imperial and metric measurements, which doesn't translate well in every case. For instance, the one for cornbread calls for 4 oz (125 g) of cornmeal or polenta. This leads to a volume vs. weight debate, and, since a kitchen scale is not specified in the list of tools needed, the cook might assume that it mean half a cup—or does it? Is white bread flour the same as white flour? Will a recipe for marble cake that's made in an eight-inch square cake pan really make 25 servings? Should a recipe for pizza dough that requires 7-10 minutes of kneading be labeled "Easy"? In any case, if you have Rose Dunnington's Bake It Up!: Desserts, Breads, Entire Meals & More (Sterling, 2007), you're in good shape and can take a pass on this one.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

Format: Hardcover
"The Children's Baking Book: More than 50 Delicious Step-by-Step Recipes" is a treasure trove of yummy recipes that can be baked by young chefs and cooks. Suitable for children age 10 and up, "The Children's Baking Book" presents simple-to-more-complex recipes in color-photo-illustrated steps with ingredients listed first and measurements given in both metric and Imperial versions. Tools are listed after ingredients at the top of the page, and servings amount, prep, cooking, and extra time is listed at the beginning of the recipe, along with a rating of "easy, medium or hard" for the difficulty of the recipe. Young chefs demonstrate steps in each recipe, and there are several categories of baked or prepared foods to choose from, including cookies and baked goods, doughs (breads), cakes, and pastry. All recipes look scrumptious. The introduction includes tips for safety and cleanliness as well as info on how to use the spreads, or recipe formats. From Simple Sponge Cake to Basic Bread and Scones and Cookies, "The Children's Baking Book" is a classic instruction manual for beginning to intermediate bakers.

Format: Hardcover
My daughter has become interested in cooking and baking so this book has been fantastic and fun. The recipes are for foods that she recognizes and is proud to serve to the family.
The only problem, all of the ingredient lists and tools lists are in cursive and she can't read it. It is disappointing that these lists are in cursive because gathering tools and ingredients is a step that she usually can do independently.
In my opinion, Children's books should never be in fancy fonts.

I purchased this book after my daughter borrowed it from the library. We take turns choosing what to make. It's easy to follow and the stuff tastes great.

I bought this for my niece and she is loving that the book is for girls and has pictures of all the goodies. I like that they give volume and weight measurements for the ingredients. It also had breads and other pastry items other than sweets.
