I still regret not being able to visit Butter Baked Goods while I was in Vancouver. Luckily, this book has acted as a delicious, delicious band-aid.
I think that Butter Baked Goods: Nostalgic Recipes From a Little Neighborhood Bakery is my favourite bakery cookbook of the year!
Rosie shares her recipies for her homemade marshmallows, “cinny buns”, loaves, cookies, cakes, frostings and more. Being able to recreate these recipes is the next best thing to hopping a plane to visit her shop.
The book is broken down into handy sections such as Cakes, Cupcakes and Whoopie Pies, Pastry, Pies and Tarts and more. One of my favourites sections is Confections. Confections and it includes peanut butter balls, Butter’s famous marshmallows, and my favourite- homemade s’mores.
Not only is it gorgeously designed, but the recipes are enticing, simple and easy to make. The photos make you want to get your hands dirty immediately. So I did. The first recipe that I made from this book was the Vanilla Shortbread cookies. They were delicious, and super quick to make. They’ve become my instant bake sale go to cookie.
See for yourself! Try out the Smartie Pants Bar.
Butter Baked Goods is written by Rosie Daykin and was released on October 15th by Random House.
