Starting as a corner bakery in NYC's West Village and growing into an international chain, Magnolia Bakery has made its name through crowd-pleasing renditions of traditional American baked goods. Here Bobbie Lloyd, the company's Chief Baking Officer, offers 150 recipes for Magnolia's classic treats.
Thinking about cake? Try the strawberry cake with strawberry meringue buttercream (works as cupcakes, too). Maybe a cookie instead? There's a recipe right here for New York's famous black-and-white cookies. Or you could switch to lemon bars with a shortbread crust. Pecan pie is here, as are apple walnut muffins, lemon poppy scones, and banana pudding.
The Magnolia Bakery Handbook speaks to the urge for tradition and simplicity, which is just what brings many bakers into the kitchen.
