The complete and “charming” (Gourmet) collection of deliciously old-fashioned and deeply satisfying recipes from everyone’s favorite New York City cupcake bakery.
Ever since the original Magnolia Bakery opened its doors in 1996, people have lined up day and night to satisfy their sugar cravings—and this book is Magnolia’s comprehensive guide to making all of their beloved desserts, including their home-style cupcakes, layer cakes, banana pudding, and other treats.
Illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs that capture the daily life of the bakery, The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook shows you how to make their famous banana pudding, sinfully rich buttercream icing and red velvet cake, and dozens more irresistible desserts.
Note : This book has got a “Rough-Cut” binding, which is why the sides are irregularly cut. It is not a kind of manufacturing defect, rather it a kind of binding used to give an antique look to the books
About the Author
Allysa Torey and Jennifer Appel are the founders of the Magnolia Bakery in New York City. In 1999 Jennifer Appel left to open Buttercup Bake Shop, which has two locations in Manhattan, where she resides with her husband and daughter. Allysa Torey lives with her son Wilson Henry in upstate New York, where she spends her time writing, cooking, gardening, and taking long walks through the hayfields with her collies Sam, Daisy, and Honey.
I lived in NY for 5 years and I would always go to Magnolia Bakery Radio City Music Hall whenever I was in that area, particularly for the banana pudding. It’s seriously the best banana pudding in the world. So when I moved away I started to crave it and so I bought the cookbook and made it for myself. It made a huge amount (which was fine with me) and tasted exactly like what I used to get at the bakery. I’ve tried quite a few recipes from this cookbook and they always come out really good. There is some great information on ingredients and the baking process too. It’s my go to cookbook for baked goods now.
I have the other Magnolia recipe book and was happy to get this one as well. Good recipes that don’t require being a fancy chef to make. The photos are real nice and inspiring. Way more fun than reading recipes from the computer! Would make a nice bridal shower gift.
LOVE THIS COOKBOOK!!!!!!
