Rose Levy Beranbaum is an American baker, cookbook author and blogger.

She pioneered the reverse creaming technique of cake-making. In this process, the fat and flour are mixed first before adding the remaining ingredients. By coating the flour in fat, gluten development is inhibited, helping to prevent toughness.[1] This is in contrast to the usual creaming technique, which first mixes fat and sugar.[2]

Beranbaum has noted that she was heavily influenced by Julia Child and James Beard.[3]

She has been married to Woody Wolston since 2021.[4]
