First part of the book is General Instructions, with topics like Yeast Raised Cakes, Temperature of Dough, Hadling Sponges, Improving Old Doughs (I love that one,) and Proper Mixing of Flours. The second half of the book is Recipes. It has 28 recipes for bread, nine for cakes, five for doughs, three for rings, and ten for rolls, plus other recipe with German names.
