Baking Beginner's Delight,
This review is from: Muffins, Scones & Coffeecakes (Paperback)
For anyone who wants to try baking that delicious chocolate cake from scratch without having to resort to Duncan Hines cake mixes, this book is ideal. There are many helpful tips on how to substitute different ingredients if your kitchen is not as well stocked as others', and it even includes a little scale to rate the difficulty of each recipe...but do not worry, most of the recipes are rated "easy".
As a college student without much time on my hands, I found this book ideal because it estimated the amount of time needed for preparation, and all directions are as straight-forward as the instructions on Instant Lunch.
If you are looking for something to ease your way into the baking field, then start here, and then jump to Betty Crocker's cookbook!
