Why dont we have cookbooks that simplify baking?

Update:

A boston cream pie is simply yellow cake with a chocolate glaze filled with pastry cream. Wouldn't it be easier if we simply broke the components down and constructed then constructed each component?  a Chocolate glaze will usually be chocolate mixed in butter and powdered sugar. Pastry cream is simply a sweet spreadable custard. a Yellowcake is simply equal parts fat, sugar, flour, and egg. one would use baking powder as there are not acidic ingredients present.

    baking is a science and you can only simplify it so much and beyond that you don't get the same results.

    I don't know what your recipe for yellow cake is, but mine is NOT equal parts of those ingredients by a long shot.   Same with my chocolate glaze ,    

    Recipes are often more complex because they are better

    Fannie Farmer Cookbook - if you can't follow the recipes in that book there is no hope for you. Reading is fundamental.

    It's not rocket science. What parts of baking are that complex.
