Although it’s always nice to bake a big batch of favorite goodies to share and freeze, sometimes it’s nice just to make a treat for ourselves, especially if we live alone or don’t have anyone to share it with. That’s why Kelly Jaggers’ cookbook, The Ultimate Baking for One Cookbook: 175 Super Easy Recipes Made Just for You is such a perfect addition to a good cookbook collection. All of the recipes are paired down to make just enough for one, and the recipes are mouthwatering, so when baking for one, you won’t have to sacrifice and eat something that isn’t what you crave.

The cookbook includes recipes for cookies and brownies – classics as well as new and unique – as well as cakes, cheesecakes, and mug cakes, breads, sweet breads, donuts, biscuits, scones, mini-size pies, tarts, and cobblers, quiches, puddings, and muffins and quick breads. Essentially everything you could ever want to bake.

Also included are hints to help when making small batches, such as sizes of small baking dishes, staples, and helpful appliances. What’s not included is photographs of each of the recipes. While the cookbook does include some photos, and they are beautiful, there aren’t enough. If the book could be improved, it would be to add more photos. However, the recipes are easy-to-follow, and they actually work. It’s impossible to look at this book and not make something.

Although it’s almost as much work to make a small batch, it’s nice not to have to waste leftovers. This cookbook has dozens of ideas for anything you may be craving, and is definitely worth having on the cookbook shelf.
