Dorie Greenspan has written recipes for the most eminent chefs in the world: Pierre Hermé, Daniel Boulud, and arguably the greatest of them all, Julia Child, who once told Dorie, You write recipes just the way I do. Her recipe writing has won widespread praise for its literate curiosity and patient but exuberant style. (One hard-boiled critic called it a joy forever.) In Baking: From My Home to Yours, her masterwork, Dorie applies the lessons from three decades of experience to her first and real love: home baking. The 300 recipes will seduce a new generation of bakers, whether their favorite kitchen tools are a bowl and a whisk or a stand mixer and a bakers torch.
Even the most homey of the recipes are very special. Dories favorite raisin swirl bread. Big spicy muffins from her stint as a baker in a famous New York City restaurant. French chocolate brownies (a Parisian pastry chef begged for the recipe). A dramatic black and white cake for a wow occasion. Pierre Hermés extraordinary lemon tart. The generous helpings of background information, abundant stories, and hundreds of professional hints set Baking apart as a one-of-a-kind cookbook. And as if all of this weren't more than enough, Dorie has appended a fascinating mini book, A Dessert makers Glossary, with more than 100 entries, from why using ones fingers is often best, to how to buy the finest butter, to how the bundt pan got its name.
Dorie Greenspan has written or cowritten eight cookbooks, including Baking with Julia, which won a James Beard Award and an IACP Award; Desserts by Pierre Hermé, which was named IACP Cookbook of the Year; and Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Hermé, which won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for the best English-language cookbook. She created many recipes for The All-New Joy of Cooking and is a special correspondent for Bon Appétit, for which she writes the Tools of the Trade column.
I was looking through the book and there are a lot of great recipes. My wife is making me one of the cakes in the book for my birthday. It is the one I called the inside out cake. Looks like it is the one on the cover.
I purchased this baking book because it was mentioned in about all of the food blogs that I follow. I have to say that it does not disappoint. To this day I have made about 4 or 5 recipes and all of them are amazing. This is my go to book for dessert recipes. I would definitely recommend this book and for the price it was basically a steal.
Very nice book with lots of pictures and many wonderful recipes. It is a good one to add to your collection.

When measuring flour, you'll want to do it carefully as to not mess up the proportions of your recipe. Use a spoon or scoop to loosely fill a solid measuring cup with flour, mounding in the center. Then, use a knife to scrape the excess off from the top. (Hint: instead of just brushing it into the garbage, save this excess flour to use on your work surface later on.)
