From the Publisher:
A treasury of recipes from New York's Greenwich Village Magnolia Bakery presents more than seventy-five of their most famous recipes for treats ranging from Lemon Icebox Pie and Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies to Sweet Potato Pie and Pear Pecan Cake. Tour.On the corner of Bleecker and Eleventh Streets in the heart of Greenwich Village sits the Magnolia Bakery. This unassuming shop, where the smells of home-style baking weaken even the strongest will, has attracted a clientele that ranges from kids on their way home from school to celebrity glitterati. Cupcakes swirled with pastel frosting crowd the counter, and cakestands display Lemon Vanilla Bundt Cake, Apple Walnut Cake with Caramel Cream Cheese Icing, and Coconut Layer Cake, swathed in fluffy white frosting and covered in drifts of coconut. As Time Out New York says: "The secret to Magnolia's success is simple: Nobody knows how to bake like this anymore."
Magnolia's owners Jennifer Appel and Allysa Torey know how, and in The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook they share their most mouth-watering recipes, from sweet breakfast treats like Dried-Cherry Crumb Buns to classic Iced Molasses Cookies, from decadently rich Caramel Pecan Brownies and Raspberry Marzipan Cheesecake to refreshing Lemon Icebox Pie. Their easy-to-follow recipes and invaluable baking hints mean that even the inexperienced baker will be able to frost the perfect layer cake, turn out the flakiest pie crust, and whip up the creamiest cheesecake. Illustrated with eight pages of glorious color photographs, The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook will inspire you to turn on the oven and create sweet memories for your family and friends.
On Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, the tiny Magnolia Bakery produces what many consider the best baked goods in New York City. Their Dried-Cherry Crumb Buns are sublime, and their fluffy iced cakes and cupcakes are classic, delicious, and hard to find anywhere else. The cookbook includes recipes for these, as well as for Iced Molasses Cookies, Caramel Pecan Brownies, Raspberry Marzipan Cheesecake, Lemon Icebox Pie, and many more incomparable goodies.
"You won't find a lot of surprises, and that's the whole point. These are the baked goods you ate when you were a child - at a diner if you were lucky, and at home if you were very lucky." - Irene Sax 01/14/2000
