Product Description

Product Description

Home baking is undergoing something of a revival. This is partly due to fact that more and more people want to know exactly what they are eating, and if you make your own cakes, you do! Also, even in hard economic times, we want to treat ourselves now and again, and it is far cheaper to make your own, good quality, cake rather than buy from the supermarket. Perhaps most importantly, making your own cakes is very satisfying and straightforward: it is something for which you don’t need expensive, specialist equipment, or years of training, and everyone can do it in their own home.

In this short-e guide you will find basic information on cake making. There is guidance on what certain terms mean, what equipment you will need, essential ingredients, and step-by-step instructions on the fundamental methods: creaming, rubbing in, whisking and melting. And you’ll fine the recipes to go with them so you can make:

A Victoria sandwich
Cupcakes
Fruit cake
Cherry cake
Scones
Gateau
Swissroll
Flapjacks
Muffins

Time for tea!

More About the Author

Maureen's grasp of horticulture started at an early age on her father's market garden and plant nursery in Sussex: she soon learned that grasping a nettle was not to be advised, whereas picking a luscious strawberry straight from the plant left her taste buds tingling. Her horticultural education continued, on and off, alongside conventional education at De Montfort and Lancaster universities, to the extent that she found herself, at various times, teaching in the Women's Royal Naval Service, lecturing in English Literature at university, training as a professional garden designer and growing herbs.
It was during the latter venture that she met beekeeper Craig Hughes, who introduced her to his beloved honey bees. Since then Maureen has fallen in love with the bees and does all she can to promote their welfare, whilst at the same time keeping true to her horticultural roots.
As well as gardening for bees, Maureen's other main areas of interest are herbs - and in particular culinary herbs - and perennial plants, both of which have led her to writing books on these topics.
Growing up in the country and having an almost self-sufficient upbringing allowed Maureen to gain a number of practical skills. For example, she has kept chickens, can make bread and cakes, and is a pretty good cook - something her husband is particularly grateful for!

Very easy reading, and simple to follow recipes, not like some you get in the more well known books on sale.
