This book is a keeper! I actually baked some stuff from this book with a 5yr old, an 8yr old and a 10yr old boys. (Yes, I do have the patience of a saint. 🤣)
So I can tell you these recipes are easy and kid approved!

I loved this great baking cookbook for kids 8 – 12 years old. I think a lot of adults, like me, will love this book for themselves as well.

With super easy to follow instructions, BAKING CLASS is the perfect book to help children learn more about baking, and the abilities they have inside them to make fun, and delicious treats of all levels of complexity.

The pages are colorful, with wonderful photos of the equipment kids will be using, children busily creating, the finished food product, and so

Some of my best memories of raising my daughter was cooking with her. I bought a number of cookbooks aimed at kids, and the Klutz series was the best. To this day, at 22, she still bakes the brownie recipe in it. Some of the pages are glued together, and it is a bit worse for ware.

I bring this up, because Baking Class would probably be my choice if I had a little one to teach cooking to, today. The directions are bright, and colorful, and everything is explained, with pictures for each major and

Last year around this time I was lucky enough to review a new book called “Cooking Class: 57 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Make (and Eat!)” by Deanna F. Cook.

This year I am thrilled to announce a new book from the same author. This one is “Baking Class: 50 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love To Bake!“.

This new book is designed to teach kids how to turn your kitchen into an at-home bakery making muffins, cookies, pies, cakes, and more. Chapter 1 “Welcome To Baking Class” is an introduction to baking for k

This recipe book is lively and colourful with lots of great pictures. It is easy to read with lots of hints and tips to make baking as easy as possible. The photographs of the equipment and methods makes it easy to show children what is what and could be a fun game in the supermarket hunting the ingredients down. The book has a lovely introduction via the dedication at the beginning. One thing which stood out to me is the rating level of difficulty using cute rolling pins! This is useful when co ...more

Baking Class is just that - a baking class for kids in book form! The recipes are kid-worthy, the instructions easy to understand, and the illustrations engaging. This is a book I will buy for my young granddaughters!

I received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.

Great title! I've been doing some small baking lessons with our three year old, and he seems to love it. This book would be a great addition to our afternoon sessions. I appreciate that the recipes are rated by difficulty/tools needed. I'm excited to try a few of these recipes, and I can promise he's going to want to make cookies first.

I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

What a fun book this was! I just adore cooking books, especially ones that aren’t just text upon text. This one has lots of fun tips, tricks, lovely photographs, and much more!

I love how visual this one was. Of course there is text, small explanations under the photographs, or an introduction to the recipe, the ingredients list, but most rely on photographs, and I loved that. I think that kids who can’t read that well yet, will

This is an extremely cute little book which I think would be great for small children wanting to get into baking--especially if they've been watching cooking shows for years (like my nephew) and wanting to dip their toes in the water. The graphics are colorful and helpful, and the steps are easy to follow. I love how all the helpers in the book are kids (with a good variety in racial representation!) because it really emphasizes that yes, kids CAN do these recipes and so

Baking Class by Deanna F. Cook As a seasoned veteran in the kitchen Some of this book was a bit below me so to speak. It is written more on the kid level. BUT I did find some amazing recipes and even learned a thing or to. No matter how much you think you know about something there is always room for improvement and sometimes we just need to go back to the basics if for nothing else then  refresher course. If you are a beginner this book is great. It teaches tips and tricks as well as a whole bu ...more

This is such a fun book, and I have to admit, I was reading it for myself (not for my 5-year-old niece as I originally intended!).
From its colorful layout, simple illustrations, and great safety tips (rating from one rolling pin to three for difficulty), it made me appreciate baking -- it’s something I generally dread. However, if kids can do it, so I can (at least that’s what I tell myself).
Rather than have lists of necessary items, I think it’s great that the “list” is a photo of ingredients/t

A great cookbook for young cooks! There is a wide range of recipes of different skill levels that kids of various cooking abilities can try. Baking Class is recommended for ages 8-12, but my 2 year old (with my supervision obviously) was able to help me with some of the simplest recipes and loved it!

Baking Class is a great way to build opportunities for parents and children to bond together while making delicious treats. With older, middle school aged children, parents may even be able to kick

The great layout and photos make all the recipes enticing. Clearly-numbered baking steps are easy to follow. I like the spiral binding and sturdy, semi-gloss pages, too. Recommended for elementary-age aspiring bakers.

I think this book is for me and my kids ahah!
I seriously consider taking lessons to improve my baking skills, moreover, if I can share this with my kids it could be great! I'm sure they will be glad to learn baking. It is a good way to learn precision, patience and it's fun!
I have also seen that website called Zowedo, there is lot of baking classes from a lot of vendors, so the reader of that book you can move on from theory to practice here:

This books has great photos, menu ideas and clear instructions. This would be a great book if it didn't rely so heavily on diary milk, butter, oil, eggs and white flour. It is a shame that people still see these as staples in baking or in cooking in general, especially for children. They are so unhealthful and unnecessary. ...more

This was a beautiful follow up to Baking Class. I learned a lot from this book. However, like the last book, it did not imply that the dry ingredients had to be scooped and followed. I can tell the author was not an actual chef.

I adore this book! Fifty recipes for kids to bake on the kitchen either by themselves or with little assistance from an adult! There were so many recipes either I want to try personally or want to try with a little one that I’m going to purchase this book! I can’t wait to check out the cookbook!
