One Bowl Baking - Book Review

It takes only 15 minutes to make the majority of recipes from this cookery book and no fancy kitchen equipment is required other than a set of scales for weighing out.  Simple to follow recipes and baking from scratch to produce delicious cakes and bakes.

One bowl baking cuts down on unnecessary equipment, less washing up and is a shortcut to making delicious bakes.

There are over 100 recipes in the book with chapters covering muffins, scones, cookies, cupcakes, bundt cakes, party cakes, cheesecakes, tarts, puddings and dessert.  Chapter 1 - Good Baking - is a guide to suggested baking tools, knowing your ingredients and how to use the recipes in the book.

A few of the recipes which caught my eye are Peaches and Cream Streusel Muffins, Juicy Mango-Raspberry Crumble Tart, Glazed Coconut Bundt Cake and Whoopie Pie Trio.  There are lots of hints and tips with each recipe regarding ingredients, cooking and storing.
Delicious Orange-Blueberry Scones
My orange-blueberry scones are perfectly delicious and I loved the use of flaked almonds as a topping. They were quick and easy to make which means less time spent in the kitchen. The scones will freeze too.

This is a useful cookery book and one to turn to when you want to bake something just a little different and with great recipe titles too.

The author, Yvonne Ruperti was a recipe developer for Cooks Illustrated and is a professional pastry chef and recipe developer.  She splits her time between Singapore and New York city.

All of the recipes are in cups, ounces and grams.
