Update: Congrats to LaneHogger. Her comment below was picked at random, so she’s won a copy of The Seasonal Baker, which lucky for her, is sure to have plenty of apple recipes.

Clarkson Potter, $35.00

With his new book, chef John Barricelli, owner of the beloved SoNo Baking Company in Norwalk, Connecticut, serves up sweet and savory recipes that he makes at home, often with his three children. Even beginner bakers should find success with his Peach-Raspberry Crisp, Cranberry-Pumpkin Muffins, and a bounty of other quick breads, crisps, and cobblers that can be whipped up in no time. (Major bonus: The muffin batters keep for days in the fridge, which means you can bake a few at a time for warm-from-the-oven muffins whenever you want them.) Experienced bakers will delight in tackling more complex projects, such as the elegant Lemon Soufflé Glacé (a light, creamy frozen soufflé). Throughout, the recipes are written with care, with tips to help achieve excellent results.

Tasting Notes

Banana-Chocolate Chip Kugelhopf (page 154) This moist banana cake is not too sweet, and baking it in a mold makes it look pretty, too. The same batter can also be made into cupcakes topped with scrumptious Nutella Frosting (page 150).

Orange Sugar Cut-Out Cookies (page 83) Grated orange zest gives classic sugar cookies a fresh twist. The recipe makes a generous batch of dough, but it freezes well, so you can put aside half to bake another day.
