Excellent! Having tried several recipes from the first book, I was eagerly waiting for this one. I made the Birthday Cake Scones, and they were truly awesome. I had never met a scone that I truly liked, until the Bake from Scratch cookbooks came out. Now, they may be my most favorite dessert. On my list to try soon is the Orange Blossom Vanilla Brown Sugar Pie, the Chocolate Rugelach, and the Chai Spice Caramel Pie with a Salty Honey Meringue.
Each recipe is accompanied by a picture, and although many do require a special ingredient, that is exactly what makes this book special. It is not your average everyday recipes. There are recipes for strudel, (Nutella and Marshmallow), and sandwich cookies, such as Mexican Chocolate with Dulche De Leche filling, Churro Smores and much more. For the bread recipes, there are Cheesy Scallion Pull-Apart Rolls, Sweet Potato Biscuits, and Chestnut, Cranberry, and Rosemary laminated Pain D'Epi. In the cake section, there are recipes for Banana Cake with Brown Sugar Hazelnut Buttercream, 10 Layer Spiced Russian Honey Cake, and a Ginger Cake with Mango curd and Key Lime Buttercream.
If you love to bake, like I do, you will appreciate having this cookbook to go to. Instructions are clear, and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. There are around 400 pages in this book, so certainly there should be something for everyone.
