One note, however, is that the basic cake recipes produce more batter than needed to fill the pan. For me, this usually means a 6-inch cake for the freezer, which is a treat.
Usually I try not to review any book until I've cooked at least 3 recipes from it (which is often 3 more recipes than some of the highly-ranked cookbook reviewers around here try). Technically, I've only prepared 2 from this book: croissants and tres leches cake. However, that cake involved the recipe for a coconut chiffon cake, caramel, and vanilla pastry cream, in addition to the syrup and cream for assembling the final cake. That, coupled with the intricate nature of the croissant recipe, gives me enough evidence to say that this is an excellent baking book, a great addition to any baker's collection.Read more ›
I will give this cookbook two more recipe tries because I want to love it. Paging thru it makes me wish the bakery were in my city and right up the road.
I'll follow up again and with fingers crossed I'll be adding stars to my review
I'm sure Mrs Prueitt has a wonderful bakery and is a skilled chef. I don't know if something was missed when scaled for the home baker, or maybe something the publisher did, but the book itself is thus-far terrible.
I have currently made the following recipes from the book on numerous occasions: Croissants, Pain au Chocolat, Morning Buns (recipe not in book), Devil's Food Cake, Pecan Maple Pie, Almond Lemon Tea Cake (another hit with friends), Pumpkin Tea Cake, Brownies, Chocolate Truffles, Flaky Tart Dough, Sweet Tart Dough, Pecan-Bourbon Pralines, Double Chocolate Cookies, Apple Crisp, and several more.
It is worth noting that you "need" a stand mixer for many recipes, including the croissants. As the authors of the book frequently say, read the recipes carefully before attempting to make them.Read more ›

Too many recipes weren't tested enough, especially when scaled down. Some recipes are great. Google a recipe before making it and you should get an idea..Published 1 month ago by buttercup
