Dikla Levy Frances, creator of One Sarcastic Baker, has the answer for every baker whose cake deflates, whose cupcakes are too dense or whose cookies come out dry and overbaked instead of chewy-and they don't know why.

Baking is essentially chemistry in the kitchen, and Dikla removes the mystery of that chemistry with her easy-to-understand breakdown of how baking works: what purpose each ingredient serves in a recipe, how they combine and interact together and most importantly, how to use the correct temperature and ingredients to get incredible results, every time.

She pairs this instruction with easy to follow recipes that readers will use to take their baking to the next level. Learn how to use butter to create a perfectly fluffy and tender cake texture with Almond Chocolate Pound Cake, and create the perfect pie and pie crust with a Rustic Savory Galette. Readers will even learn the best temperature to use to tackle notoriously-tricky treats with her Pistachio Orange Blossom Madeleines.

In these 50 recipes, you don't have to be a scientist to understand how to craft the perfect baked good.

This book will contain 50-60 recipes and photos.
