Thank you to Penguin Random House Canada for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Review: I have a slight addiction to reading cookbooks and eating good food so when PRHC asked me if I wanted to review Tanya Bakes I was more than happy to oblige. First, I want to talk about this book cover. It might be the most beautiful cookbook I’ve laid my eyes on. From the bright and festive background to the gorgeous birthday cake and the text flanked by tiny gold stars. The goodness doesn’t stop with the cover. The recipes inside are divine.
I’m a mom of three girls so there’s a lot of food talk in my house. One of my daughter’s has an affinity for baking so when Tanya Bakes cookbook showed up at our house she squealed with delight. A few recipes she and I earmarked for weekend baking include Salted Nutella Cookies – six ingredients to what sounds like the best cookie ever. Peaches & Cream Muffins – we are saving this one up for August when fresh, local peaches are abundant and sure to take these muffins over the top. Lemon Drizzle Loaf – I cannot pass up a slice of lemon loaf and will always choose it over chocolate. Pineapple Upside Down Cake – this is the quintessential dessert of the 1970’s and still going strong in 2018. And finally, Birthday Cake (pictured on the cover) – my little baker requested this one for her birthday next week, surely because it’s decorated with ten million candy sprinkles and a fistful of birthday candles!
If you love cakes, loaves, puddings, and breads, which I think just about everyone does, then you need this cookbook!
