A comprehensive bread-making guide for bakers of all skill levels from a name you can trust.
Nothing is more basic or more versatile than bread. From a white loaf to quick-to-make muffins, bread is a well-loved staple. The Big Book of Bread is a complete resource for both new and experienced cooks, with more than 200 recipes and 100 color photos. New bakers will find clear and easy-to-follow instructions, tips, techniques, and how-to photos to bake a range of breads, from classic yeast breads to friendly quick breads. More experienced bakers will enjoy new flavors and techniques to add to their repertoire.
This one-stop bread book will delight and encourage bakers of all levels of experience, with recipes using mixes and made-from scratch batters for artisanal breads, no-knead breads, coffee cakes, scones, gluten-free recipes, bread machine recipes, pizza dough, and more.
A homemade country loaf, freshly baked carrot-walnut coffee cake, and savory parmesan-chive scones don't require hours and experience in this Betty Crocker title, complete with 200 recipes. Home bakers can rejoice in no-knead breads, like the artisan bread, and quick, family-friendly desserts, including banana-toffee mini-cakes. Purists may scoff at the inclusion of Bisquick and canned apple pie filling in ingredient lists, as well as the use of bread machines, but this collection makes it possible for busy bakers to whip up selections, even on a weeknight, that include caramelized-onion focaccia, dinner rolls, and blackberry coffee cake. "Bake Smart" highlighted boxes offer tips on everything from freezing to fruit selection to zesting. All recipes include calorie-counts and nutritional information. A selection of gluten-free recipes includes glazed lemon-pecan bread, banana-chocolate chip muffins, and pizza crust. A solid and practical guide with 100 color photos.
