With their three previous kids' cookbooks, Shannon Ferrier and Tamara Shuttleworth have proven that kids and cooking go together like cake and icing. Now, with The Kids' Bakebook, they show youngsters how to make the cake and the icing...and all sorts of other baked delights too!
Baking is easy, if you start off right. The book begins with easy-to-understand "baking basics" that ensure safety in the kitchen and happy results. Then come six collections of delicious recipes cookies, cakes, muffins, biscuits, quick breads (like banana bread) and yeast breads (like crusty french). Whether your taste buds yearn for shortbread cookies or energy bars, giant pretzels or popovers, apple-cinnamon muffins or carrot cake, this selection of 66 recipes is a young baker's treasure.
The authors introduce each recipe by explaining its origin, and they provide handy tips. All the recipes are graded easy, medium or hard, so cooks can start with simpler recipes and then move on to more challenging ones. The book also has "how-to" illustrations, measurements in both metric and imperial, and an index.
