Happiness Is Baking: Cakes, Pies, Tarts, Muffins, Brownies, Cookies: Favorite Desserts from the Queen of Cake

by Maida Heatter
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company


Some say happiness is baking! It certainly seems to contribute to longevity. Maida Heatter is a spry 102-year old cookbook legend. Heard of her? James Beard Winner? 3 times, only.

Maida Heatter

This volume of 100+ dessert recipes is her homage to her favorite things – the favorite desserts from the Queen of Cake! With none of the glitz and shine of cookbooks in the “Insta-Age”, this fanciful and fun tome is a quiet, old-fashioned celebration of the best of things. Desserts.

The book includes recipes for everyday cakes, special occasion cakes, cookies, pies, tarts, brownies, bars, and more. It’s a true inspiration to read and hold. This is the best cookbook type: purposeful and passionate.

I grew up with a copy of Maida Heatter’s Book of Great Desserts on view in a sacred spot on my mother’s recipe book kitchen shelf.

Happiness Is Baking is the ideal gift for anyone who loves baking.

For the record, it’s more correct I’d think, to say Baking is Happiness.

Pick up a copy. You will be enchanted as I was. Check Price on Amazon here.
