We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Even if you've been cooking for years, very few people can whip up a batch of cookies, a loaf of bread or a homemade cake without following a recipe. That's where these baking books come in handy. We've rounded up some of the best options for all skill levels and preferences, whether you prefer the tried and true classics or you're looking to branch out with some more adventurous options. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best baking book on Amazon.
