A companion to the bestselling America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, this comprehensive cookbook delivers the foolproof recipes, step-by-step instructions, and troubleshooting guides that have become the hallmark of every book published by America's most trusted test kitchen.

And with 22 chapters, this book is packed with recipes that will keep you busy (and your family and friends happy) for years to come.

Here you'll find recipes that range from easy and approachable (simple bowl cakes, quick breads, no-knead bread, and no-bake cookies) to more ambitious and demanding (artisan breads, wedding cakes, fancy layer cakes, and pastry). So whether you are an accomplished baker looking for a great collection of new recipes or a beginning baker looking for a practical step-by-step guide and easy recipes to bake for your family, you'll find what you want here.

In addition to the recipes, The America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book is full of test kitchen tips that explain how or why a recipe works (and where you can go wrong), recipes at a glance (where we provide mini tutorials with photos), and illustrated troubleshooting guides (where we highlight the most common baking problems and their solutions).

Baking has always been my favorite form of cooking, and so when I received this book as a present, it truly was the perfect gift!
The collection of recipes is a kind of "best of" collection of basics. There are also fancy recipes, to be certain! But you won't find, say, ten different types of chocolate cake in here. Why? Because in their usual fashion, America's Test Kitchen has experimented and found the "perfect" type of chocolate cake!
I don't always agree with their version of "perfect," but but that is mostly a matter of taste.
This is still my go-to book for baking, and is probably the best cookbook I have.
Highly recommended, with generous color photos! I also like the ringed "binder" style of cookbook, which won't keep closing on you, like a large, hardbound copy tends to do.
