Product Description

Swedish Cakes and Cookies has become a modern classic since it was first published in 1945. Modernized and improved over the years, today's full-color edition, with beautiful photographs of each recipe, contains nearly 300 recipes. Some, such as Berry Muffins, Coconut Macaroons, Linzer Torte, and Jelly Doughnuts, may be familiar, while others, such as German Lemon Cake, Almond Meringues, Truffle Tarts, and Toffee Crunch Torte, are deliciously unique. Gluten-free, egg-free, and sugar-free recipes ensure that this book is accessible to all dessert lovers. Beginners and experts will be reminded that baking is both easy and enjoyable when they read the practical advice and step-by-step instructions in each section. Swedish Cakes and Cookies is an essential resource for any home baker, and for anyone who loves to meet with friends for coffee and cake. 300 color illustrations

I bought this book as I'm getting into baking biscuits and there don't seem to be many recipes on these. This is a wonderful book not just on Swedish cakes and biscuits, but I also discovered while looking through these cakes and pastries, many of them are recipes that have found their way across much of Northern Europe. I could count a good many of these are cakes, breads and pastries I've come across in Polish, Hungarian, German, Czech and no doubt Danish cuisine due to cross border travel in the last 60 or so years. It is an absolute MUST in any serious baker's library and anyone who considers themselves a serious cook should have this to use again and again. I'm only sorry I didn't come across this book a few years ago, but will certainly make up for lost time now. Many of these recipes are typical of Northern European cuisine, homely, hearty, gutsy food, full of flavour that you keep coming back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 16 Mar 2011
By R. Pan
There is a picture of every single recipe. Its great to bake with award winning recipes tried and tested and passed down over the years. The recipes work, dont use a ton of fancy ingredients you can only source from speciality stores and are delicious. Its proper delicious unpretencious food.

5.0 out of 5 stars exceedingly nice cakes.... 2 May 2011
great book and very easy to follow. Only thing I found that annoyed me slightly is the use of cups for measuring purposes but I now have the said cups so it is no longer a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood memories galore! 13 Jan 2013
By Mawali
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had looked for a Swedish book of cakes and biscuits for ages and then saw this one! Such a treasure trove of recipes. Some my Mother used to bake and I'm now baking for my kids. All very clearly written and the measurements easy to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practically Perfect 6 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not just cakes and cookies to be tried and admired - the section on yeast baking, with easy and delicious results, is perfect for those of us who enjoy the taste and smell of freshly made rolls, muffins etcetera. I do not care for over-sweet and decorated cakes and cookies, preferring the use of nuts and fruit: this book is perfect for me (and fortunate friends who visit). It is easy to use, and a practical size - typically Scandinavian.
