Batch Baking: Get-ahead Recipes for Cookies, Cakes, Breads and More

Written by

Cynthia Barcomi


04 August 2022

Who’s the author?: Baking expert, author, and TV presenter Cynthia Barcomi brought America coffee shop culture to Germany in the mid 1990s, before publishing two baking books for the German market. She founded a coffee roastery in Kreuzberg and a deli in Berlin Mitte, and often appears on German TV as a baking expert, spending her time sharing her passion and belief that anyone can bake. Batch Baking is her first English cookbook.

What’s it about?: In this gorgeous new cookbook Cynthia aims to make it even easier for home bakers to enjoy delicious treats from the comfort of their own home. Batch Baking is unlike other baking books you might have on your shelf, providing you with 70 recipes for make-ahead doughs, batters, and dry mixes, that can be transformed in minutes into delicious home-baked treats – with plenty of vegan and gluten free options included. With Cynthia’s helpful advice on making, handling, and storing your pre-made mixes, you will always be just a few steps away from freshly baked cookies, cake-ies, pizzas, pastries, and more. The recipes are designed to be flexible both to make and to store for later, so that you can whip up a big batch of mid-week pizzas from the freezer when you don’t feel like cooking, just as easily as you can sneak a few freshly baked cookies for yourself when the craving hits mid-afternoon!

Perfect for: Packed with recipes and advice from Cynthia, Batch Baking is the perfect cookbook for any home-baker or lover of baked treats who wishes they had more time to bake at home.
