As you saw in the video here, my new book – The Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Baking – is finally out and making the rounds. And now you can purchase copies directly from me here at The Pie Academy.
I think the book is well named: the 118 recipes in the book are the accessible, “everyday baking” sort you’ll find yourself returning to week after week. Recipes like Double-Apple Walnut Bread, Bacon-Blue Cheese Scones, Pumpkin Sugar Cake, and Chocolate Mud Bars. They aren’t the sort you’ll try to tackle only if you have a degree from culinary school.
Have a look above: that’s the Glazed Lemon Coconut Loaf from page 24; Individual Pear Cranberry Crisps right below it; and the Virginia Peanut Pie that’ll give traditional pecan pie a serious run for its money.
Even though I’ve been baking for a lot of years, I still remember what it’s like to be a beginning baker, or an experienced one trying out a new recipe. You wonder about all sorts of things: What will the pie look like when it’s done? When will I know I’ve mixed the dough enough? What sort of cookie sheet should I use?
So I’ve tried to anticipate your questions and work the answers into the recipes. I think you’ll find that helpful.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac folks have been wonderful to work with and they have done a beautiful job with this 136 page paperback. There’s full color photography on nearly every page, including dozens of shots of the finished items. How they managed to create such a gorgeous book and price this under ten bucks, I’ll never know.
