The sensibly southern and sweet award-winning food blogger Jenn Davis knows the key to Southern baking. Real ingredients and crowd-pleasing classics, all made from the heart.
In her new cookbook, The Southern Baking Cookbook: 60 Comforting Recipes Full of Down- South Flavor, debuts tasty trade secrets. Approaching flavor with a southern disposition and innovative twists, she honors crowd-pleasing classics like Berry Cobbler (pg. 55) and Coconut Pie (pg. 16), and also adds innovative twists to treats like Hummingbird Bundt Cake (pg. 59) and Gingerbread Brownies (pg. 97). Since no baking cookbook is complete with sweet fare alone, she also shares savory recipes like Summer Tomato Galette (pg. 41) or Chorizo-Jalapeño Scones (pg. 136).
Jam-packed with must-have tips for mastering pie crust, layer cakes, cookie dough, quick breads and more, The Southern Baking Cookbook is perfect for beginning bakers and pastry pros alike. And it’s delightfully dedicated to those who eat cold pie from the pan (while standing beside the open refrigerator door), literally.
Those new to southern cooking will surely fall in love, while those who grew up with it will feel right at home. Happy cooking!
