When it comes to baking, less is more.
Would you believe that you can make high-quality, no-stress sweets using just three ingredients? What if those recipes can be made with ingredients you already have on hand or can buy in a single trip to just one grocery store? Does it sound too good to be true? Charmian Christie, creator of blog The Messy Baker, promises that it's not!
In The 3-Ingredient Baking Book, she shares 101 delicious and easy-to-follow recipes, from cookies to ice cream, to help you spend less time in the kitchen and less money on food. Whether you're looking for entertaining-worthy desserts or just want to make yourself an effortless treat, Charmian has you covered. Impress your guests with Quick Chocolate Mousse, Mini Baklava Bites or a heaping serving of Strawberry Eton Mess. Feeling like a bit of self-indulgence? Keep it simple with Peanut Butter Cookies, Maple Popcorn or Chocolate Hazelnut Mug Cake. She also provides tips and tricks, must-have pantry items and equipment, and walks you through how to avoid the most common baking mistakes.
If you're new to baking, this book is a great place to start. Nothing here is too difficult and you won't have to spend a car payment on speciality pans. If you're a seasoned pro, you'll find inspiration and new ways to make old favorites without the fuss. So grab an apron and take the 3-ingredient challenge!
