Big, Bold Baking from the Heartland
America’s Heartland is a blend of the many cultures this great country is made of. “Midwest Made”, written by Shauna Sever is a medley of baked goodies from the diverse peoples that make up America’s Midwest.
The cookbook contains over 125 recipes that are sure to please. Pies, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies and cornbread are just some of the stars of this show. While there are not as many pictures as I like in a cookbook, the ones that are there certainly make you want to get in the kitchen and start baking. Warm , yummy, comforting goodness awaits all who choose “Midwest Made”.
A Love Letter to America’s Heartland, the Great Midwest
When it comes to defining what we know as all-American baking, everything from Bundt cakes to brownies have roots that can be traced to the great Midwest. German, Scandinavian, Polish, French, and Italian immigrant families baked their way to the American Midwest, instilling in it pies, breads, cookies, and pastries that manage to feel distinctly home-grown.
After more than a decade of living in California, author Shauna Sever rediscovered the storied, simple pleasures of home baking in her Midwestern kitchen. This unique collection of more than 125 recipes includes refreshed favorites and new treats:
- Rhubarb and Raspberry Swedish Flop
- Danish Kringle
- Secret-Ingredient Cherry Slab Pie
- German Lebkuchen
- Smoky Cheddar-Crusted Cornish Pasties
. . . and more, which will make any kitchen feel like a Midwestern home.
