Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Choose-your-own pumpkin spice bread

    • Emily Hope on November 15, 2019

      We liked this quite a bit--very moist (verging on but not quite reaching greasy), and the flavor profile of the actually spicy pumpkin spice was great. Super easy to put together. However, we didn't finish the loaf, so that also says something... maybe too one-note?

  • Snickerdoodles

    • Astrid5555 on December 14, 2019

      These are very good and quick to make snickerdoodles. Halved the dough and made one part with the classic cinnamon topping and one with the matcha topping also from this book, which we preferred (“matcha heaven”). The instructions tell you to use a 3-tablespoon cookie dough scoop to scoop the dough into balls. I used a much smaller one to scoop the dough and the cookies were big enough. Otherwise they would have been enormous I think.

  • Banana bread

    • Astrid5555 on November 24, 2019

      While this is a nice banana bread, this is not a special banana bread. However, I liked the way the author has you add the whole bananas to the batter and let them break up in the stand mixer instead of mashing them beforehand. Thus, perfect weeknight baking as promised!

      Good banana bread. Adding the whole bananas to the blender is a neat trick.
