Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cream cheese dough

    • Astrid5555 on August 18, 2020

      Looked a little curdled before adding the flour, quite sticky to work with. Best to be rolled out between two sheets of parchment paper. Delicious crust!

  • Blood plum galette

    • Astrid5555 on August 18, 2020

      Really delicious and so quick to make! Needs less than an hour from start to finish. Roll out the dough between to sheets of parchment, otherwise no chance to transfer the finished galette on to the baking sheet. Will go into regular plum rotation!

  • Blueberry coconut shagg layer cake

    • Astrid5555 on June 14, 2020

      Beautiful to look at, did not add the sweetened coconut flakes to the top and sides of the cake. I might have used the wrong coconut milk (did not check the percentage of coconut extract to water as described) and ended up with a quite dense cake with a fat ratio that felt wrong. Also too sweet for my taste, would have loved to have a higher fruit to buttercream ratio. However, no one at our socially distanced father’s day get-together complained about it. Since this is a four layer cake one small slice goes a long way.

  • Chocolate Bavarian pie

    • pomona on March 20, 2020

      This is just like a Sara Lee chocolate Bavarian only better. It was so good it vanished off the plate at work. A++ will make again.

    • lou_weez on March 27, 2020

      This was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be and the results were delicious.

  • Heat and whip meringues

    • pomona on March 20, 2020

      Pretty great way to use up the egg whites from the chocolate Bavarian tart.

  • Red velvet layer cake

    • lou_weez on July 09, 2020

      I used half yogurt/milk combo in place of the buttermilk in this recipe. Cakes took longer to cook than the stated 20-25min. I ended up turning the heat to 180 and that did the trick. This was such a lovely cake and everyone really loved it. Not a sweet cake, just right in its balance of flavors. The white chocolate cream cheese frosting is amazing!

Publishers Text

For Natalie Paull, baking is a gift. It's also a powerful elixir of pleasure, connection, generosity and joy. In Beatrix Bakes, Natalie indulges in baking's sweetest moments with more than seventy recipes inspiring bakers of all kinds to mix and match to make recipes their own – whether it's a lemon curd cream crepe cake or pecan maple cinnamon scrolls.

Sparkling with Natalie's distinct voice, and packaged with full-colour photography, illustrations and rock-solid tips for a perfect bake, Beatrix Bakes also includes 'Adaptrix' suggestions (offering ways readers might do things differently, including short cuts) and is peppered with infographics to help them follow their baking heart. Try The Cheesecake (That You Will Love The Most) with a crumb base, or a bought biscuit base, or no base, or a sponge base, or even a failed cookie base! And from there, pick a topping from sour cream, to crumb, to fruity bits. The recipes are divided across eight chapters: Doughs, Pastries & Crusts; Tarts, Pies, a Crostata & a Galette; The Cake List; One in the Hand; Yeasted Bakes; Fruit-full; Creams, Custards, Fillings, Glazes and Buttercreams; and Finishing Touches.

While Natalie's creations are inspired by classics the world over, they are irreverent too, and in Beatrix Bakes she delights in showing readers that – once they get the foundations right – the truest magic will come from a willingness to play (with the insurance of her many clever ideas and back-up plans in their apron pocket!).

Beatrix Bakes will guide anyone who loves the adventure of baking to perfect their skills and break the baking mould.
