So how did an ordained Presbyterian minister and musician become so well known for his baking? He explains:
I have loved baking pretty much all my life. That love came from my family, and I have included some cherished family recipes in my book in their honour. The name of the blog, “Bengtsson’s Baking,” and of the book, Bengtsson’s Baking Secrets, are also an homage to my family as it reflects the original spelling of my last name and highlights the Swedish heritage behind it. I do include some traditional Swedish delights in the book, but mostly the focus is just good, all-natural, homemade foods for your family!
People within the Birmingham, AL metropolitan area, however, are in for a special treat! Bankson’s baked goods are available for custom ordering for special events or simply to try his delicacies for yourself!
