Happiness is Baking| Review

Does baking intimidate you? Are you overwhelmed by the precision? Well, have no fear, the “Queen of Cake” has come to the rescue! In Happiness Is Baking, Maida Heatter writes each of her recipes with enough detail to lead all bakers, beginner or experienced, to success! Happiness Is Baking is a collection of Heatter’s classic recipes culled from the many cookbooks she published over her decades of baking. Her personal notes have been used to update, improve and modernize each one. Like all great recipe writers, Heatter provides instructions that may seem trivial, arbitrary, or insignificant, but she offers a practical explanation for everything. She encourages you to treat her book like a school textbook: before you get to the fun of making the recipes, read the cookbook, write in the margins, and take notes. This will make the recipes your own and the book a treasure to pass along to future generations. Heatter says baking is “special-effort cooking“ – truly one of the creative arts, and when you create something and share it with those you love, you experience a joy that makes life fulfilling!
