Bake your way through the entire day with James and Tiffany Fraioli’s original recipes for new bakers!
Wake up to fun family favorites and foolproof recipes for muffins, scones, sweet rolls, pastries, quiches, breakfast breads, and more. In the afternoon, bakers learn how to perfect artisan sourdoughs, pitas, focaccias, naan breads, and other specialties made easy.

More than just a collection of sumptuous recipes for families and friends, Baking for Beginners offers a baking education through easy and accessible explanation. Tools and techniques are thoroughly discussed in an easy-to-follow manner along with helpful tips that guide the everyday baker with easy preparation, ingredient substitutions, and troubleshooting when their bake is in danger. Important skills are carefully woven throughout—skills every new baker should know when baking from scratch, like measuring, mixing, kneading, creaming butter and sugar, and whipping egg whites.
Clearly written pages with the dedicated baker in mind, Baking for Beginners confidently turns home cooks into avid bakers in no time. Plenty of tried and true recipes accompanied by virtual side-by-side guidance in the kitchen is what sets this book apart. This is the perfect gift for the tentative baker looking to be self-sufficient in the kitchen.
