Bake the Book: Baked Elements

Sweets Emma Kobolakis Closed

Baking is a synergy of art and science, so a little organization of the elements goes a long way. Baked Elements: Our 10 Favorite Ingredients, the third cookbook by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, uses the principles of the periodic table to present recipes sorted by essential ingredient. Bananas, cinnamon, pumpkin, chocolate and even cheese are all featured elements, and each one is given a chapter around which recipes are built. More

Never been to Red Hook? It's a neighborhood that feels like it's made for lazy summers.

We paid a visit recently to hit up some of our favorite bites and make some new finds. Follow along on our crawl. More

Decadent Chocolate Desserts

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Certain times call for restraint, but other times you just want all-out decadence. In the form of chocolate, of course. From the famous triple layered chocolate cake at The Chocolate Room to fudgy dark chocolate sweet and salty brownies by the guys at Baked, there's no shortage of places in the city to satisfy that craving.

Behind The Scenes At Baked, Red Hook, Brooklyn

New York Donny Tsang 6 comments

It's no secret that we at Serious Eats love Baked in Red Hook (they won our search for the best cupcake in NYC in 2011). Since Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito opened Baked in 2005, the duo has been churning out baked goods tasty enough for the trek out to Red Hook. More

Mixed Review: Ghirardelli Brownie Mix vs. The New Baked Brownie Mix

Sweets Lucy Baker 48 comments

It's not every day that a baking mix makes it into the Wall Street Journal, so when the newspaper reported that famed Brooklyn bakery Baked had released a line of brownie mixes that were "worth every calorie," I knew I had to try them. More

Chocolate Mint Thumbprints

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 15 comments

It wasn't until I baked these Chocolate Mint Thumbprints from Baked Explorations that I realized where my longstanding affection for the chocolate-mint flavor combo came from. They call for Andes Mints, those wonderful little green foil-wrapped rectangles of deliciousness. More

The Best Cupcakes in New York City

New York Leah Douglas 79 comments

We know, we know—it's been years since cupcakes first hit New York. And Serious Eats is not the sort of blog that breathlessly covers every new cupcakery in the city. But at some point, we came to the realization that, when asked where sold the best cupcakes in New York City, we didn't have an answer. And that just wouldn't do. So we tracked down New York's best.

Cakespy: Magic Cookie Bar Pie

Serious Eats cakespy 27 comments

Magic Cookie Bars are, as their name might imply, no ordinary treat. Starting with layer upon layer of unrelentingly rich layers of buttery graham cracker crumbs, toasted coconut, chocolate and butterscotch chips, and nuts, they get even better from a rich smothering in sweetened condensed milk. With all that awesome, some might argue that a small serving is best. But I disagree, and to prove it, I've created it in a deliciously thick pie form. More

Seriously Meatless: Southwest Mac and Cheese With a Cornbread Crust

Serious Eats MichaelNatkin 3 comments

Macaroni and cheese is great to make for dinner parties that include kids. I like to make two batches: one with a simple and classic cheese sauce, and the other with big, bold flavors. Today's recipe is for a Southwestern version packed with three kinds of peppers (roasted poblano, Hatch, and red bell) and topped with cornbread crumbs instead of the standard breadcrumbs. More
