Make that
What's Baking?!

50 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love To Bake!
by Deanna F. Cook

Following the best-selling Cooking Class comes this delightful baking companion for kids ages 8–12, featuring 50 easy-to-follow recipes. Lively step-by-step photos teach bakers-in-training how to knead dough, make biscuits, decorate cookies, and produce a perfect pie, along with essential skills like following directions and accurately measuring ingredients. They’ll learn to make both sweet and savory treats and will use fresh fruits and vegetables in recipes such as Bursting with Blueberry Muffins, Zombie Zucchini Bread, and Peachy Keen Crumble. Bonus goodie bag stickers, pop-out gift tags, and bake sale signs encourage kids to share their homemade delights with pride.


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 much more.

BAKING CLASS has 50 easy recipes for yummies among which are, Carrot Applesauce Bites, Fancy French Breakfast Treats, Crunchy Tortilla Chips & Nachos, Corny Corn Bread, Mix & Match Bread Art, Coconut Macaroons, Farmer’s Market Tarts, One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes, and so much more, children and adults alike will want to spend more time in the kitchen making amazing food, and happy memories. 

I truly do recommend this book to parents, grandparents, people of all ages. It makes baking fun and easy, not just for kids, but for any beginning baker.

I know I found some great ideas and recipes that I can't wait to try!

About the author

Hello! My name is Deanna F. Cook and I'm a kids' cookbook author. I wrote my first book, The Kids' Multicultural Cookbook, when I graduated from college and received a grant to travel around the world and collect recipes from kids. After that, I was a magazine editor for many years, first at Scholastic, then at Disney's FamilyFun where I often shared kids crafts and recipes on TV (Good Morning America, the Today Show, Food Network, and more). I now write children's non-fiction books. Check out my newest books: Cooking Class, Baking Class, Farmers Market Activity Book, Horse Play!, and Teddy Bear Doctor!

I'd love to hear from you, so please write to me at I'm available for kids' cooking classes, classroom visits, TV appearances, book packaging, and freelance writing.
