4.0 out of 5 stars useful tips and imagery 24 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have pointed out there aren't enough pictures of the food to quite satisfy but I do feel that the book is still very appealing and tactile and does entice you to bake. The font is clear, the recipes are well laid out and the imagery and straightforward description is almost as helpful as a picture to be honest. I am already a keen baker of many of the recipes in the book but did enjoy trying a different mix of ingredients (usually more decadent in this book!)and look forward to trying more. Best of all though was the vanilla bean tip in the introduction; who would have thought that you could buy vanilla pods on the internet at a fraction of the supermarket cost? Having bought 50 pods for less than 8 (currently 2 pods for 4 in Waitrose!) I have been even more keen to bake and see what difference real vanilla makes!
Since writing this review I have made a number of other treats from this book and have found that the tips and description really do make a huge difference - for example I have tried (failed at) baking brioche before but following the recipe here made beautiful beautiful brioche. Again, it's the descriptions that tell you how long to beat for and what it should look like that give you confidence as you bake. It also helps you to understand the chemistry behind the baking and then go on to experiment. I now do a 50% icing sugar to 25% butter to 25% mascarpone cheese topping for my cupcakes which I am delighted with. And don't miss out the sugar syrup - makes a big difference! Love love love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthusiastic Classic and Different Baking Book 11 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was blown away when this book arrived. It's got lovely sounding recipes, and has it's feet firmly in classic baking; but there are lots of twists on recipes to make your taste buds water.

It's not all sweet baking either, which I think is good, because as much as I love to bake, tea / supper needs to be cooked as well! Chapters are Breads, Cakes, Savoury Baking, Desserts and Patisserie, Dinner Party, Sweet Treats and Basics. Book is nicely done, clean layout and plenty of pictures - not of every recipe, but a good amount of them.

The first programme in her baking series was on TV last night, and all the recipes featured on it are in the book, which is good, as it's so annoying when featured recipes are not all there in a tie in book! No worries here though. There are basic, classic recipes like Victoria Sandwich, Swiss Roll, White Bread and Breadsticks and lots more beside.

A little taster of recipes are:

I Can't Believe You Made That (Chocolate) Cake
Stout and Stilton Bread Rolls
Flapjacks
Pear Tart Tatin
Pork Pies with Cider
Gluten Free Irish Cream Coffee Cake
Mojito Genoise
Big Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sun Dried Tomato and Rosemary Palmiers
Fondant Fancies
Chocolate Melting Puds
Glam Mac and Cheese
Chicken Pies with Mushroom and Tarragon
Pastilla (chicken pie Moroccan Style)
Banana Loaf with Rum and Pecans
White Chocolate and Amaretti Cheesecake

3.0 out of 5 stars Baking Made Easy 12 Feb 2011
By Jen M
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An attractively produced cookbook to accompany the excellent television series. However, I would have appreciated a photograph of each recipe which would have been particularly useful when cooking something new, otherwise one is not sure that the recipe has been made correctly. Also not keen on a cookbook listing ingredients and method over different pages. Difficult to turn pages back and forth when cooking with recipe book supported in book stand! For these reasons I give 3 stars. I have loved the series on TV but will be sticking with Delia for recipe books on baking!

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT ENOUGH PICTURES 22 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
After watching her show I was totally taken in with the whole look and feel and the fact it was EASY. I bought the cook book, and although I am looking forward to making 4 of the recipies today, I am very disappointed at the lack of pictures of food in the book. There is not much to inspire you when you are flicking through for something that takes your fancy. You can literally go 20 recipies and there might only be 3 accompanying photos of the completed dish. There are, however, plenty of photos of Lorraine, as gorgeous as she is, I would rather see the food. Please please please can we have more photos in the next book. Lorraine even says in her show that she always photographs what she makes, and there is a beautiful looking scene of her with her camara taking a photo, SO WHERE ARE THEY. Bit dissapointing, but still love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Baking is indeed easy 12 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
Bought the book straight away after watching her show cause she managed to make baking looks so very easy. The book just arrived today and I am very excited to try every recipes in the book as she describe elaborately and in an excellent manner on the methods. However,the thing that I don't like the book is the lack of picture for every recipe. I am the type of person who likes to know what the end-results looks like especially in baking and cooking. There were lots of pictures of the author though I don't know how it can contribute to the baking. Nonetheless, I would rate it 5/5 for its recipe and methods but overall, 4/5 cause not all of the recipes have pictures.

:)
