I was recently given the opportunity to review “Small Batch Baking for Chocolate Lovers“ by Debby Maugans. The extensive 120+ recipe collection is the author’s follow-up to her earlier and popular “Small-Batch Baking” cookbook. Her newest book expands on “Small Batch Baking’s” techniques with an ingredient that is actually the author’s first taste of the day everyday: chocolate.
Because sometimes a 9-inch layer cake is too much and 2 dozen cookies is just torturous temptation, Small Batch Baking for Chocolate Lovers specializes in chocolate versions of favorite baked goods, including layer cakes, cookies, pies and puddings that are downsized to make just enough for a one time serving.
You can find classic desserts such as chocolate cake and chocolate chip cookies alongside unique combinations such as chocolate lavender cream tarts and java chili chocolate pecan crackles. Ideal for singles, couples, or small families, this book features lots of tempting recipes loaded with chocolate of all kinds and all forms, a real chocolate lover’s dream.
For more information, please see my full and extensive review of the cookbook at Honest Cooking.
I am pleased to share with you that Debby Maugans has generously offered to send one of my readers a copy of Small-Batch Baking for Chocolate Lovers.
