Cookbooks by Rebecca Blackwell
It’s no surprise that salted caramel is all the rage right now. Caramel – that gorgeous silky confection created by cooking sugar until it’s rich and golden – is the definition of decadence. But, adding salt takes caramel to a whole other level. Salt balances out the richness of caramel, complements its sweetness, and adds complexity and depth of flavor. Without at least a pinch of salt, caramel can taste a bit flat.
So, the real consideration is not whether you should add salt to caramel, it’s what type of salt to use and how much to add – two questions addressed in each recipe of this book. Almost every recipe in this book starts with either salted caramel sauce or salted caramel candies. Master these two recipes and you can turn everything into a salted caramel version of itself.
From salted caramel cakes and pies, to ice cream, brownies, doughnuts, cookies and more, this is THE cookbook for salted caramel lovers.
“I love this book!!! I love these recipes. I’ve followed Of Batter and Dough’s blog and tried several of her recipes, every one with great success. How great to have a new collection always accessible. My most recent try was the Salted Caramel Apple Pie. Delicious!!!! I even had an issue with a recipe (when I forgot to add salt to a cake) and I got a a quick reply to my desperate message to her which saved me! It’s like having a personal baking consultant at my fingertips. These recipes are THE BEST!!!”
“I made this cake for my Mom’s birthday a few weeks ago and it was a masterpiece! Everyone loved it! Take the time to make this right, especially the caramel sauce. I could drink that stuff right out of the bowl! I will make this again! Thank you for sharing!!!”
“Beautiful pictures and amazing desserts! This book offers some decadent desserts sure to dress up any special event.”
“So excited about this charming little book. I have been following Of batter and Dough for years and many of Rebecca’s recipes have become favorites.

Highly recommend!”
“This is truly caramel cake (thank you, brown sugar) and it is the most buttery, delicious frosting I have ever tried or made.”
“This frosting is amazing! I hate the sugary, hardened stuff that calls for tons of powdered sugar so I was excited to try this. I was nervous to make it since I haven’t attempted this sort of thing before. I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out light, fluffy and silky smooth, not to mention delicious.”
“I’ve just finished making this buttercream to spread on a 4-tiered chocolate cake for my son’s 1st birthday. I had a taste and it is AMAZING!”
“I love this cook book! I’ve made some of the recipes and I don’t think there’s a bad recipe in the whole book. Everything is delicious and simple to make. The photography is incredible, and it really motivates you – once you see the picture, you can’t wait to try it!”
“Excellent cupcakes and icing! I HATE buttercream frosting, but you have converted me! Thank you for an excellent recipe and flawless instructions.”
“We recently purchased this excellent book and the recipes we have tried are terrific! I only wish I lived closer to Rebecca so I could be a full-time “taster” when she starts working on her next recipe book!!”
