Description: Here is a book that contains recipes for some of the most succulent, mouthwatering baked products you ever took out of the oven, collected by an expert in the culinary arts. All the homemaker could possibly want to know about the technique of baking is clearly described in this simple, easy-to-follow cookbook. It covers anything which can be fashioned from flour -- from plain dough yeast bread to yogurt oatmeal griddlecakes to apple strudel and fine pastries. 

Foreign as well as domestic delicacies are covered thoroughly, and you will get hundreds of ideas for new flavor treats as well as substantial food values to offer your family. 

Complete Book of Home Baking is truly an encyclopedic coverage of the subject of baking. There are temperature charts and charts explaining equivalents where substitute ingredients have to be used; there are directions and suggestions on weighing and measuring ingredients; and there are the Ten Commandments for Successful Baking to which every cook should adhere. An idea of the tremendous scope of this book may be obtained by glancing at the partial table of contents on the back of the jacket.
