The Boozy Baker is a fun collection of recipes for cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, and more, all of which contain a healthy dose of alcohol. Home bakers will recognize classic treats such as profiteroles, peach cobbler, and spiced Bundt cake, and be delighted by the ways they are reinvented with chocolate stout, almond liqueur, and even Jgermeister. Featuring more than 30 full-color photographs, the book also includes sidebars throughout with instructions for preparing funky cocktails that add a punchy compliment to many of the recipes. Whether you are a pastry perfectionist or a one-bowl beginner, a bonafide mixologist or just looking for a way to polish off a few dusty bottles, this cookbook is sure to become a favorite, its pages splattered with chocolate, sprinkled with sugar, and garnished with a twist.

Patricia Helding, Founder, Fat Witch Bakery, and author of Fat Witch Brownies "This gem of a cookbook should be nestled right between your baking canisters and a bottle of your favorite hooch. Don't reach for one without the other." Rick Rodgers, author of Thanksgiving 101 and many other cookbooks "Lucy Baker has created a spirited collection of luscious recipes that are likely to make a dedicated teetotaller make an exception when it comes to dessert. Lucy knows what many pastry chefs have known for years--that a splash of booze can make or break a dessert. Cheers!" Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, authors of over seventeen cookbooks, including Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter "Finally, someone has solved that age-old riddle: you can indeed have your cake and drink it, too. Lucy Baker's concoctions are the perfect brew-sweet, spirited, and downright fun. Our only warning: she doesn't include a recipe for aspirin." Pichet Ong, author of The Sweet Spot "Of the many baking cookbooks in my stack, this one definitely takes the cake. The concept is utterly original, filled with irresistible photos, and inspiring recipes that will surely incite the inner child-and adult-among us dessert lovers and bakers alike." The Edge- Boston, 8/5/10"Baker has compiled a swoon-worthy collection of 75 original dessert recipes that use alcohol plus 25 cocktail recipes." Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty.

Kate on
Great book! I've already tried two of the recipes and they were a great success. The alcohol is subtle and just adds a little flavour to the baking. There's also some interesting takes on old favourite recipes - eg. a "margarita meringue pie", similar to a lemon meringue. As the book is from the US you do need to convert some measurements/temperatures but thats easy enough to do.
