A Love Letter to America's Heartland, the Great Midwest

When it comes to defining what we know as all-American baking, everything from Bundt cakes to brownies have roots that can be traced to the great Midwest. German, Scandinavian, Polish, French, and Italian immigrant families baked their way to the American Midwest, instilling in it pies, breads, cookies, and pastries that manage to feel distinctly home-grown.


After more than a decade of living in California, author Shauna Sever rediscovered the storied, simple pleasures of home baking in her Midwestern kitchen. This unique collection of more than 125 recipes includes refreshed favorites and new treats:

  • Rhubarb and Raspberry Swedish Flop
  • Danish Kringle
  • Secret-Ingredient Cherry Slab Pie
  • German Lebkuchen
  • Scotch-a-Roos
  • Smoky Cheddar-Crusted Cornish Pasties

. . . and more, which will make any kitchen feel like a Midwestern home.
