I am so excited to share with you my new book, Baker Bettie’s Better Baking Book!I describe this book as the one that I wished I had when I was first learning to bake. I wanted a book that broke down baking science, mixing methods, and techniques in an approachable way. This book does exactly that!
Amazon #1 Bestseller in Professional Cooking, Pastry Baking, Cake Baking, Pies, Desserts, and Cookies
Every baker needs either a hand mixer or stand mixer. A hand mixer is a fairly inexpensive investment and will get you by with most all baking uses where a mixer is called for. A stand mixer is very nice to have, especially if you are an avid baker, but it is not essential.
I’m all about making it work in the kitchen and have whipped many egg whites by hand, however there are just some baking applications where a mixer truly is needed. You will never be able to cream butter properly without a mixer.
This book has everything! Zoë François teaches you everything you need to know to bake layer cakes, bundt cakes, loafs and more.
You have to see these beautiful pictures with over 85 recipes for yourself. You will be salivating and dying to start baking in no time. As someone who could always use a bit of extra help when it comes to cakes, I can’t recommend this book enough.
If you’ve ever watched any of my videos or taken a class with me then you know how much I advise using a kitchen scale to take weight measurements of your ingredients.
Measuring by weight is a much more accurate way of measuring and since baking is an exact science, it really is important. A kitchen scale is a relatively small investment and truly invaluable in a baker’s kitchen.
