I love to bake! Cakes, cookies, pies, scones, pastries of all sorts, cinnamon rolls, donuts—I love to bake them all.
I especially enjoy reading books that feature baking in them, so my “B” post is the perfect opportunity to mention a few of those.
Bread and Jam for Frances is one of my favorite childhood picturebooks, and though there isn’t a lot of baking in the book, the food references warrant it a place in this post.
And how about The High Rise Glorious Skittle Skat Roarious Sky Pie Angel Food Cake by Nancy Willard?
A few months ago I was part of a blogging event and for one of the activities I designed some dessert menus that I would serve to characters from some of my favorite books. You can check that out here.
All Four Stars is an upcoming release that I suspect will have its share of baking.
Then there’s Pie by Sarah Weeks, focused on the search for a world-famous pie crust recipe!
