    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The photos and recipes included in this collection are exactly what I am looking for in a cookbook. The photos inspire me, the instructions are easy to follow, and there is just the right amount of backstory included with each recipe (I'm side-eyeing you food bloggers who make me scroll through your life story before I find the info I came for). My husband had mentioned a few times that he liked carrot cake. I ha I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

The photos inspire me, the instructions are easy to follow, and there is just the right amount of backstory included with each recipe (I'm side-eyeing you food bloggers who make me scroll through your life story before I find the info I came for). My husband had mentioned a few times that he liked carrot cake. I had never eaten carrot cake and definitely never made one. When I saw the carrot cake recipe in this collection I decided to give it a shot. Especially when I saw that one of the ingredients is spiced rum! My mistake: I baked my cakes for the 30 minutes suggested but did not test the middle (which the recipe does say to do--oops!). The middles were not done so I used a large circle cookie cutter to take out the centers. This also meant I could't horizontally cut the 2 cakes to create 4 layers so I stuck with the 2 layers. I ended up with a cake shape akin to a bundt cake. Aesthetics aside, the end result was a sweet success. Now, what recipe should I try next? 🤔 Come chat with me about books here, too: Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest

    Kelly Fields grew up in low country South Carolina where both her mother and grandmother loved to bake and share their desserts with family and friends. Fields discovered her own love of baking while working in bakeries and decided to go to culinary school. After working in several restaurants, this cookbook is the culmination of her own baking point of view - making classic Southern desserts and baking more modern. The cookbook is organized into categories like cookies and bars, cakes, etc. Whi Kelly Fields grew up in low country South Carolina where both her mother and grandmother loved to bake and share their desserts with family and friends.

The cookbook is organized into categories like cookies and bars, cakes, etc. While a lot of the pictures looked yummy most of the recipes have a LOT of ingredients. I know baking isn't simplistic, but these recipes seem more fancy and professional than for the average home baker. It's a beautiful cookbook and I LOVE Southern food, but I personally felt like this was not geared toward the average home cook.

I really really hadn’t reached my maximum capacity until I got this baking cookbook in my hands. I am all about breads, cakes, pastries, cookies.. well you get it. My dream has always been to be able to make my own at home. The Good Book of Southern Baking has a ton of delicious recipes, and easy(ish) to follow instructions. I always have extra questions.. but when the baking goodness come out of the oven, all my questions and doubts went away. And although many of the recipes consisted of ingredients that I already had in my pantry, most are very common and many would also be in every household pantry., there were some items that I couldn’t even find at my local grocery store. Sooo I had to improvise.. only in some cases though so it wasn’t a big turn off. Overall a wonderful cookbook I will be referencing, and using time and time again. Especially during the cold season.

    Id die a happy person if I were buried in cornbread and biscuits. Kelly Fields's The Good Book of Southern Baking: A revival of Biscuits, Cakes, and Cornbread brought me back. Back to the years I spent at southern tables with folx that fed and cared for me. Nostalgia blended with twists and tricks to improve my baking. You can see the years of experience in the readability of the recipes. Baking can often be overwhelming, but in this book they are much less daunting.

Baking can often be overwhelming, but in this book they are much less daunting. The only negative I found, is that the recipes arent weighed out; I much prefer to measure my ingredients by weight when baking. Otherwise this book is going to make a love addition to my baking section, and Ive made biscuits every other day for nearly a week straight!

    Really, really liked this book. The photos were beautiful; the recipes easy to follow and well written; and the choices were abundant. My favorite sections were: 1) Puddings and Custards ... some interesting puddings such as Bananas Foster Bread Pudding and Cornbread Bread Pudding; 2) Cobblers, Crisps, Galettes, Pies, and Tarts ... because I love fresh fruit and baking with it this section was my favorite. 31 mouth watering recipes which I am sure I will be making; 3) Basics which had recipes fo Really, really liked this book.

    I'm not generally a baker but I will say that after having read through this cookbook, there are many recipes that I will attempt. While there are some ingredients list and instructions in some of these recipes that may scare some newbies in baking, there are many that are simple. I think from patience and preparation beforehand, many will find satisfaction from baking biscuits, cakes, and cookies. The stories behind these recipes were enjoyed and the photos are beautiful.

    New Twists on Old Favorites! I started drooling from the first picture in the book. The pictures are gorgeous, the recipes for the most part are easy. Great recipes for old favorites like pies and puddings and many recipes that will become my new favorites like Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. I am looking forward to trying many more recipes in the book. This cookbook is definitely a keeper! I've received a free copy from Lorena Jones Books in exchange for a free and unbiased review.

    As soon as this book arrived, my daughter, our resident baker, grabbed it and couldn't put it down. There are so many outstanding dessert recipes in this book. It's sure to become a classic for people who love to bake. The recipes range from the simple to the sophisticated. This book will get a lot of use in my house.
