Review

Patricia Helding, Founder, Fat Witch Bakery, and author of "Fat Witch Brownies"
"This gem of a cookbook should be nestled right between your baking canisters and a bottle of your favorite hooch. Don't reach for one without the other."
Rick Rodgers, author of "Thanksgiving 101" and many other cookbooks
"Lucy Baker has created a spirited collection of luscious recipes that are likely to make a dedicated teetotaller make an exception when it comes to dessert. Lucy knows what many pastry chefs have known for years--that a splash of booze can make or break a dessert. Cheers!"
Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, authors of over seventeen cookbooks, including "Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter"
"Finally, someone has solved that age-old riddle: you can indeed have your cake and drink it, too. Lucy Baker s concoctions are the perfect brew sweet, spirited, and downright fun. Our only warning: she doesn t include a recipe for aspirin."
Pichet Ong, author of "The Sweet Spot"
Of the many baking cookbooks in my stack, this one definitely takes the cake. The concept is utterly original, filled with irresistible photos, and inspiring recipes that will surely incite the inner child and adult among us dessert lovers and bakers alike. The Edge- Boston Herald.com, 8/5/10 Baker has compiled a swoon-worthy collection of 75 original dessert recipes that use alcohol plus 25 cocktail recipes.

Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR "Library Journal s Xpress Review" July 2010
In her first cookbook, appropriately named food writer and contributing columnist for SeriousEats.com Baker gives lovers of desserts and spirits a book that is one part mixology and three parts baking. She includes 25 recipes for drinks alongside 75 recipes for cakes, pies, cookies, and spoon desserts; each is a classic or original dessert that is infused with an alcohol-spirits, liqueurs, wine, or beer. Verdict Featuring drinks and a broad variety of desserts, this grown-up baker's delight is a good choice for libraries with limited budgets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes, great results, great fun 31 July 2012
By Kaylin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Many novelty/themed cookbooks out there fall woefully short of producing delicious and quality food from scratch. Happily, The Boozy Baker does NOT do that. Every recipe is clearly and well-written, so they're easy to follow. There is also a suggestion at the end of most recipes on what alcohols you could substitute if you did not have the one called for in the recipe. The recipes cover a wide variety of baked goods, from cookies and cakes and pies to mousses and profiteroles and bread pudding, so you're not stuck making variations of the same item over and over. In the few months I've owned this cookbook, I've made several recipes (including the plum biercake twice!) and each one has turned out deliciously. I have many cookbooks, but The Boozy Baker is one I continually find myself returning to. My liquor cabinet has definitely grown, which means I can try the drink recipes Lucy Baker includes throughout the book. There isn't a drink corresponding to every single recipe, but there are plenty to choose from. My personal favorite is the blueberry rum smash.

Overall, The Boozy Baker is an excellent cookbook that I'd highly recommend. It's easy to use, has many recipes to choose from, and yields delicious results. And the drink recipes are fun to pair with your baked goods.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes & Inspirations 13 Oct. 2010
By Pamela J. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When Amazon recommended this title last May, I was immediately intrigued. I have always looked for ways to include liquor in my baking. When my copy arrived, one of the first things that caught my eye was the Champagne Layer Cake. My nephew had recently announced that he and his girlfriend were getting married; the wedding would be held out of state, but they would have a reception here for the friends and family that couldn't attend the wedding. I knew that I would have to bake the Champagne cake for their second reception. It was a hit! One of the guests loved the flavor of the cake so much that she had to seek me out and rave about it. I shared the book title and author's name with her. As it happens, she works at a book store. She ordered a copy for herself, and copies for the store.
I have tried a few more recipes, the Jack Daniel's bread pudding was a delightful surprise, but I have also been inspired to be bolder when experimenting with adding booze to some of my other recipes. For instance, the Strawberry Cupcake recipe that Martha Stewart had on her program- I substituted rum for half of the milk that the recipe calls for. I call them Strawberry Daiquiri Cupcakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baking with Booze rocks! 16 July 2010
By C. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Boozy Baker is a beautifully put together cookbook. The design and food photography are top notch, as are the written anecdotes. Flipping through, I see loads of recipes I can't wait to try. The many recipes in here are nicely balanced between the fruity, chocolaty, cheesy, coffee, and nutty, etc...and include brownies, cookies, cakes, drinks, pies, tarts, and others. Yup, there's a lot of amazing-looking stuff in here, you need to see these pics.

My favorite recipe I've made so far is for the "Black and White Russian Cookies." I also love the drink recipes I've tried, especially the Dirty Girl Scout (yes, just like a Thin Mint...and there is a cookie recipe to go with it, which I hope to make soon). There are also a few recipes that involve beer, which I am a big fan of (I home brew), so I hope to try those out soon using some of my own beers.

Honestly, I don't do much baking, but I do enjoy boozing & eating desserts, so far all the recipes I've made from the Boozy Baker have been spot on (if I keep this up I may actually end up knowing what I'm doing around the oven). I usually stick to grilling and more typical cooking and figured this would be a good way to try something new. This book is definitely a winner, I'm looking forward to trying more recipes from it.

I got this as a gift for my baker friend, who LOVES it. Made a great birthday gift and she has vouched for many of the recipes as time goes by. Very fun for the baker that has tried and made it all.
