A Good Day to Bake is full of 70 sweet and savory baking recipes for any day of the week, led by flavor.

Going through the ritual of bringing out the measuring scales, pouring out flour, whipping up the eggs, stirring the batter and impatiently slicing up warm cake is a beautiful thing that deserves to be enjoyed all year round no matter the day, season or occasion.

This is a cookbook that embraces simplicity, mindfulness and the therapeutic comforts of baking. The Great British Bake Off's 2016 contestant Benjamina writes so warmly about cakes and her recipes speak to a natural, seasonal and down-to-earth way of baking. Chapters include Herbs & Tea, Stone Fruit & Berries, Vegetables, Best of Beige, Spice Cupboard, and Chocolate.

Because every day is a good day to bake.
Benjamina Ebuehi writes recipes, styles and creates content for media, such as BBC Good Food, Waitrose Weekend and Guardian Feast as well as brands such as Sainsbury's, McVities, Lindt, Lyles Golden Syrup, Anthropologie, Baileys and Schwartz spices.

Benjamina is an ambassador for the incredible social enterprise Luminary Bakery, and co-founded, with her sister Bonita, The Sister Table (www.thesistertable.com), hosting pop-up brunches and supper clubs for women across London. Her food blog Carrot and Crumb (www.carrotandcrumb.com) was a finalist in the 2019 Saveur Blog Awards.

A Good Day to Bake is her second cookbook.

"There may not be a better case for the stylishness of beige than Benjamina Ebuehi’s latest cookbook, A Good Day to Bake. The book’s clean minimalism and soft neutral hues set the stage for narrow slices of toasty malted brown butter pound cake and golden spirals of chamomile lemon dough. The 70 recipes prove that you don’t need much more than sugar, flour, and butter to massively improve your afternoon tea or coffee break." -TASTE

"A Good Day has a breezy, impulse-baking feel—you know, when you wake up on Sunday morning and think, “Scones?” (In those moments, rosemary and honey scones are the answer.)" -Alex Beggs, Bon Appetit

"Her confident, friendly demeanor and creative flavor combinations won me over." -Julie Chernoff, Better

"These are recipes for the everyday, when a craving strikes and an ordinary evening calls for a tart, some shortbread, or a pound cake that tastes way better than any non-occasion deserves." -Eater

"Combined with stunning photography and a dreamy aesthetic, these recipes feel modern yet approachable." -Janelle Bitker, Soleil Ho, and Elena Kadvany, The San Francisco Chronicle

"An especially and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, family, and community library cookbook collections." - Midwest Book Review

"To borrow a bit from the GBBO judging criteria, Ebuehi is good with flavors. Her recipes are organized to emphasize this aspect of baking" -Eater

"Of all the books I’ve pored over in 2022, “A Good Day to Bake” is the prettiest, an escape into a timeless English dream world of sticky toffee treacle tarts and split scones spread with clotted cream." -Jennifer Reese, The New York Times
