Publisher Comments:

"Baking by Flavor begins with an extraordinary exhortation to maximize flavor and follows through with an extravagant collection of carefully crafted and precisely detailed recipes to remind us that what matters most is the architecture of taste."

-Bruce Healy, Author, The French Cookie Book and The Art of the Cake

Flavor is the very essence of fine baking, the source of wonderful tastes and aromas that tempt the palate and delight the senses. In Baking by Flavor, Lisa Yockelson shares exciting new ideas for building flavor in baked goods that can make virtually any recipe burst with new vigor and freshness.

Chapter by chapter, Baking by Flavor reveals techniques for creating luscious sweets in eighteen flavors-including chocolate, vanilla, lemon, almond, and buttercrunch. These techniques can be used to add depth and definition to both classic and original desserts.

The book features 260 carefully selected recipes, which include many inspiring ideas for bringing new life to favorite recipes. See how a pound cake springs to life when sugar is scented with vanilla, butter is creamed with vanilla bean scrapings, and egg yolks are beaten with a double-strength vanilla extract. . . . Discover how dark chocolate brownies become richly sensuous when chopped nuts, lightly coated with cocoa powder and confectioners' sugar, are added to a creamy batter. From Cocoa-Chocolate Chip Pillows and Buttercrunch Melt-a-Ways to Apricot Oatmeal Breakfast Scones and Spice Ripple Keeping Cake, each delectable dessert sings with flavor.

Throughout, Yockelson's clearly written, easy-to-follow instructions make this book a joy to read and to use in the kitchen, while dozens of photographs beautifully illustrate select ingredients, equipment, and finished presentations.

With a host of exciting new ways to make flavor-rich cakes, cookies, muffins, tea breads, scones, sweet rolls, and more, Baking by Flavor will forever revolutionize every cook's approach to baking-with delicious results.

Review:

"Chapters on equipment, key ingredients (with instructions for making Clarified Butter, Coconut Streusel and other components) and techniques are invaluable to the serious baker....Yockelson thankfully writes solid, inventive recipes....This certainly deserves a spot on the dedicated baker's shelf." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The chapters devoted to buttercrunch or to caramel and butterscotch (not to mention the ones on peanut butter, chocolate, and coconut) would be reason enough to buy the book, but Yockelson's unusual approach, knowledge, and passion make this more than just a collection of delectable recipes. Essential for all collections." Library Journal
