The Baked Library

If you like Baked, you will love our cookbooks.  Each book is distinct - each one has its own personality and all of them are filled with recipes from our bakery in Brooklyn as well as favorites from our fact-finding dessert research missions (aka vacations).

Baked Occasions

Celebrating a year in desserts, BAKED’s beloved duo Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito offer cookies, puddings, whoopie pies, cakes, brownies, and more to commemorate holidays both expected and unexpected. Rum-infused Hair of the Dog Cake for New Year’s Day and Peanut Butter Sheet Cake for Texas Independence Day join Praline Ice Cream Cake for Mardi Gras, Chocolate Pop Tarts for Halloween, and 12 Days of Cookies for Christmastime. With 65 gorgeous photographs and 75 unique recipes, you’ll have everything you need to create a wide range of sweet treats for quirky festivities and traditional holidays all year round.

Baked Elements

Baked Elements… is arranged by our favorite ingredients, ten distinct flavor elements from which to build a range of recipes. These are the ingredients that we would take to a desert island or rescue from a burning house. They are the basis of our bakery, our books, and to some degree, our lives… While we can’t expect everyone’s top ten ingredients to match ours, we do hope the recipes turn into new favorites.

Baked Explorations

Baked Explorations: Classic American Desserts Reinvented, our second cookbook, continues the tradition of bringing classic American baked goods from our bakery to your home.  We traveled the highways and byways of America in search of local specialties and unique treats - then we broke them down and gave them a Baked makeover.
