For future baking show contestants and home bakers: Super Simple Baking for Kids (Matthews)

#SuperSimpleBakingForKids #NetGalley

Do you know a young baker or would you enjoy introducing a child to baking? If yes, this book is an excellent resource. The book begins with a helpful chapter on baking basics and then goes on to have many recipes. There are cookies, bars and bite size treats; muffins and quick breads;cakes, cupcakes and frosting; pies and tarts and savory and salty breads and snacks. A few examples that appealed to me included peaches and cream pie,apple cider-doughnut cake, pumpkins spice muffins and lemon bars.

The directions are easy to follow. Each starts with a list of the tools and equipment that are needed. It is important to look at these because you may not have everything in your house if you are not a baker yourself. For example, a pastry blender or a sifter or parchment paper or a stand mixer. The recipe then has the steps for the recipe spelled out. There are also sections on tips and/or things to ask an adult.

In my opinion, this book could be used successfully by older children, children with their parents or adults themselves who want to learn to bake.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this sweet read. The opinions are my own.
