The PR people for Agate Publishing sent me a copy of Baking Basics and Beyond: Learn These Simple Techniques and Bake Like a Pro.
When I first read about the book I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was really impressed when I received it.
I loved that there were recipes as well as tips throughout. I like to consider myself a pretty educated baker, but I learned a lot from the book.
I bookmarked pretty much every page, but I was set on making the cinnamon raisin swirl bread first.
I’m more of a quick bread kind of girl (a.k.a. I have no patience) but I always feel super proud of myself after I make “real” bread.
I mean, look how beautiful this bread is…
You can get the book for 11 bucks and get this recipe and a bunch of others, plus some great baking tips.
Top this bread with some Biscoff Spread…. oh maannn, it’s like heaven in your mouth.
