Standout Baked Goods from Scratch the Easy Way

There's no denying that freshly baked homemade treats are the best, but these days it can be hard to find new recipes that don't take all day to make and don't have long lists of specialty ingredients. Who has the time or money? Quick-Shop-&-Prep 5 Ingredient Baking has the answer with 80 incredible new and easy desserts. With only a 5-minute shopping trip and a few simple steps, you'll have a warm, delicious homemade goody to share with family and friends.

Just imagine the smell of Maple Nut Coffee Cake or the first salty sweet bite of Salted Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars. Then there's the "mmmm" that comes after a forkful of warm Weeknight Fudgy Brownie Cake. And think of the pride you'll feel when your friends gush over your fresh Vanilla Bean Cake with Blueberry Whipped Cream. All of these with only 5 ingredients or fewer? It's true! Each incredible recipe needs only 2, 3, 4 or 5 simple ingredients beyond the basic baker's pantry, saving you time and money at the grocery store.

Bakers with years of experience will be surprised to see how delicious these simple treats are; and inexperienced bakers will be pleased to learn that these desserts are even better than a boxed mix, but not any harder to make from scratch. With Quick-Shop-&-Prep 5 Ingredient Baking, you'll bake something delicious and full of love for your family, your friends, a special occasion or just because you can.
