I love American baking for 2 main reasons. The generous portion sizes and the fact that you just want to attack them with any eating implement you have to hand (fingers are a personal favourite!)The Outsider Tart guide to all sweet things American and utterly awesome does not disappoint. So far I have made a total of 4 things (since I purchased my copy all of 2 days ago and I physically had to stop myself heading to the oven to produce more). The recipes are clear, easy to follow and what's more they are incredibly fun. As an enthusiast and keen tester of baked goods, of books I have purchased recently it was nice for this one to actually put the FUN back into baking. (The fact that it contains not one but THREE forms of measurements means there is not one element of effort I have to waste).

As for the rest of the book, there is chapter upon chapter of sweet delights ranging all the way from brownies and bars (the way they were always meant to be) to whoopie pies (I would attach a picture if mine lasted that long) all the way to frostings and free spirits, a chapter dedicated to the baker who is not satisfied with a mere triple layer chocolate cake but wants to go all the way to 6 to satisfy their chocoaholic cravings in the form of the 'blackout cake'.

The photos look as scrumptious as the cakes themselves and the stories accompanying each and every treat shows what a huge amount of heart and personality goes into each and every one. This book is welcome holiday to what wholesome American baking should always be. 'Baking in America' has a very welcome place in this Brit's kitchen (and every single one of my friends and family's Christmas stocking).

I'm an American who has lived abroad for ten years. I came with a lot of US recipes, but I adore this cookbook. The Outsider Tart recipes work with British ingredients in a way a lot of my home ones don't - the texture and crumb of everything I've made so far feel extraordinarily American. It's an amazing cookbook.

The two Davids have been baking mouth-watering cakes at their Outsider Tart bakery in London for the last couple of years. Having tried as many as we could (great carrot cake!), there was no choice but to order this book hot off the press. Every chapter begins with a fascinating introduction that includes anecdotes, inspiration and tips charting how the Davids made it to where they are today. Each recipe is accompanied by its own special story, some great hints on how to get the best results and are often cheeky and humorous making you feel as though the Davids are in the kitchen with you. They are all there - layer cakes, whoopie pies, cupcakes, brownies and more including their iconic Hepburn Brownies. You have a choice with this wonderful cookbook - read it as a book, drool over the photos or make the recipes! Forget the calories and enjoy!

I love this book. I live in America, my daughter who lives in London has frequented the Outsider Tart, knows the Davids' and has raved about their goodies. When I heard they were going to have a book published about their tasty confections, I knew I wanted one. Well I got one, and I have never enjoyed a book of "home baked treats" more. It is so easy to follow, so many great basic tips and told with such a laid back attitude that you can't go wrong. Everything I have made so far has been superb, the pumpkin whoopies were a real hit at my sisters halloween party.
Only problem I have is there are only two of us to eat all these amazing desserts most of the time (I do have company lol) so my freezer is full.
As an added comment, I don't believe it's fair to give this book two stars just because the cover picture isn't what she thought it was. Nowhere does it say that it is a red velvet cake. Red velvet whoopies say it all, adjust!

Having been a huge fan of Outsider Tart and the Davids since finding them at a Farmers Market years ago (they even did my wedding cake!), I had this cookbook on pre-order the second I could.

I have made several things really successfully and just love the cookbook. As an American (I moved to the UK in 1999), I have for years missed many of my home comforts as I just couldn't find the ingredients or I didn't have the knowledge to find the right UK substitutions. Now with things more readily avaiable, and the really useful introduction to the book which details the differences with ingredient names and the suitable substitutions, I'm a baking fiend! I've only had 1 small failure and when I posted on the Facebook page about it, David had suggestions up for me on what to do next time within 12 hours.

Overall, this is a great cookbook which lives in kitchen and is readily accessed even when doing other recipes - I love it.

I came across the two Daves (who between them make up Outsider Tart) at an outdoor food market on the South Bank. I had an hour to kill and wandered over to check out their offerings to accompany a cup of coffee. I chose one of their Mile High Brownies and it was a revalation - oozing with rich, fudgy delight - in fact, I ended up saving some of it to finish later.

After that, I just had to know more, so I went back and asked them how they did it. The great thing about this book, for us Brits, is that it takes all the guesswork out of American baking. They've done it for us - no more cups of flour and sticks of butter to worry about. Every little tweak has been taken care of and suddenly the glories of real brownies, cookies, whoopee pies and Amish-style breads are within our reach.

You could just buy this book to savour the wonderful illustrations and enjoy the Daves' easy conversational style, and it would still be money well spent. But the real proof is, as the saying says, in the pudding - and they demystify everything, explaining when it's vital to do exactly what they say and (more frequently) when a little creative license is acceptable. If this gorgeous collection doesn't get you cooking, nothing will - you will be whipping up Shoofly Pies and Red Velvet Whoopees in next to no time. Buy it and add a whole new dimension to your home baking.
