Product description

Review

"Happiness is Baking is for the sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters of the bakers who first fell in love with Heatter four decades ago. All of her famous cakes and cookies are here."--Boston Globe

"Decades of experience have gone into the making of this delightful collection of cakes, pies, cookies, brownies, and bars. Heatter writes recipes with a precision that will embolden new bakers to create successful desserts, while offering up explanations that will teach seasoned bakers something new... An excellent collection for novice bakers as well as those who enjoy learning how to bake with precision (and why it matters)."--Library Journal

"For the baker of any age... If you're of a certain age and spent any time around flour, sugar, and eggs, you would know about Maida Heatter and her recipes. Saveur magazine called her "The Queen of Cake," and indeed she is, along with queen of brownies, cookies, muffins, and more... Happiness is Baking is a collection of her favorites that will be welcomed by those who have spent far less time in the kitchen than she has."--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"Cause for celebration. It's high time to introduce the queen of cake, as Saveur magazine dubbed her, to a new generation of bakers... Heatter's instructions are meticulous and fool-proof, down to how to line a pan with aluminum foil. But it's her enthusiastic, texture-specific descriptions of the results you can expect if you follow her recipes to a T that inspired a whole generation of bakers to pull out their measuring cups."
--Christian Science Monitor

"While personable and funny, Heatter is relentless in her quest for perfection. These are recipes to read closely, and not just for her delightful borscht belt humor... How lucky that a new generation will get to know the sweet genius of Maida Heatter. These days, we could all use a dazzling grandmother to tell us that everything is going to be all right--or, at the very least, our skinny peanut wafers will."--Christine Muhlke, New York Times

"An outstanding and approachable collection of classics for bakers of all ages and skill levels... One of the season's standout baking volumes."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"If you love classic American baked goods, then this is your grand prize. Maida's voice is evident on every page and is always a delight."--Kitchen Arts & Letters

"Perfect for a baking newbie... [Maida's] recipes are exceedingly thorough and always reliable."--Portland Press-Herald

Book Description

From the bestselling 101-year-old "legend" of baking (New York Times), Maida Heatter, a modern-classic collection of her all-time best-loved, tried-and-true recipes
