83 Pr. Mar. 2018. 400p. photos. index. ISBN 9781940772486. $39.95. COOKING
Hoffman (The Coupe) collects more than 600 recipes from the second year of Bake from Scratch magazine, including orange spice sheet cake, white chocolate tahini babka, blueberry and bitters strudels, and churro s'mores. Each includes an attractive photograph and measurements given both by weight and by volume. Despite the book's massive size and scope, it never feels derivative. Even the most basic recipes offer a twist on the ordinary; for example, pumpkin pie gets a modern update with the addition of a goat cheese crust and brown sugar whipped cream.
VERDICT This highly recommended baking bible will meet all your spicy, boozy, creamy, chocolatey, and fruity baking needs.
