The Southern Baking Cookbook

Jenn Davis, creator of the popular Two Cups Flour blog, is a North Carolina native who knows all the secrets to good Southern baking, and she shares them in her new book, The Southern Baking Cookbook: 60 Comforting Recipes Full of Down-South Flavor (Page Street Publishing, 2022; $21.99). In this collection of 60 recipes, Jenn blends her Southern sensibilities with a unique approach to flavor, reimagining Southern classics with a twist. You’ll find Jenn’s take on pies and cobblers (Carolina Muscadine Apple Pie); cakes (Whole Lemon Cake); cookies and bars (Chocolate Chai Whoopie Pies); bread (Cheesy Drop Biscuits); and morning sweets (Pecan Sticky Whirls). Jenn’s creative use of everyday ingredients and clear, step-by-step instructions make each treat accessible for beginner bakers, yet inspiring enough for seasoned pastry pros.
