Small-Batch Baking

Small-Batch Baking is how to have your cake, and eat it all too. It’s baking a plate of cookies (not 4 dozen) to greet the kids when they come home from school, or a few muffins (not 12) when that’s all you need for Sunday brunch. It’s for the perfect tart to end a small, romantic dinner–or the indulgence of a one-bowl dessert just for you (Honey Apple Oatmeal Crisp, anyone?). Most of all, it’s to bring home the joy of baking, when home is just the two of you–small batches whip up quickly, clean up quickly, and don’t require hours at the oven.

Written by Debby Maugans Nakos, who clearly possesses the Southern baking gene, Small-Batch Baking offers 200 irresistible recipes from across the baking spectrum: triple layer cakes, bundt cakes, angel food cakes; pies and tarts; cobblers, crisps, crumbles, and short cakes; cookies, bars, squares; biscuits, muffins, scones, breakfast breads; and a whole section just on Valentine Specials–Double Hot Chocolate Soufflés, Chèvre Cheesecakes with Honey Anise Ginger Syrup, Vanilla Banana Caramel Flan.

A batch of Cream-Filled Chocolate Cookies–that yields a half-dozen. A Coconut Layer Cake, just for two. Individual servings of Cinnamon French Toast Pudding or Southern Peach Cobbler with Bourbon Cream. It’s all the bewitching pleasure of home-baked, but–finally–for just one or two.
