More About the Author

Lorraine trained at the leading Leiths School of Food and Wine before completing spells in some of the most renowned kitchens in the world. Eager to work for herself and exercise her baking talents Lorraine couldn't wait to start her own business, The Cupcake Bakehouse, in London's Covent Garden. Wide public attention beckoned after her landmark BBC 2 TV series, Baking Made Easy, introduced millions of viewers to her easy, impressive recipes. The book of the series went on to be a bestseller and was followed up by an even more popular book and series, Home Cooking Made Easy, making Lorraine the most successful debut cookery writer in the UK at that time. With further bestsellers, including Fast, Fresh and Easy, Lorraine has since sold over 1 million books in the UK alone, and continues to satisfy fans with her simple approach to delicious cooking.

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.

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

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.

Like other reviewers, I think the absence of a photo for each recipe detracts from an otherwise excellent programme and its' accompanying book. I was most surprised to see that the grandest of all the cake recipes (The Red Velvet Cake - supposedly a wedding cake) was not photographed; what a missed opportunity!

I have made only one of the recipes so far (only had the book 2 days) - peanut butter cookies. The recipe calls for 300g of peanut butter. The jar I bought had only 230g, but even that seemed too much for the recipe, and the cookies are very salty, but still very moreish. I have checked out other peanut butter cookies online, and the quantity of peanut butter is far less than Lorraine's recipe for same quantity of cookies (12). In some recipes there is as little as 30g of peanut butter, which seems about right.

If anyone else has made these cookies and disagrees or agrees with me, please let me know. Or, if Lorraine is reading these comments, please could you confirm that you do mean 300g of peanut butter to be used for just 12 cookies? Many thanks.

UPDATE:______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
My orignal review ended with the paragraph above, however since then I have made a few more things from the book and now wanted to confirm what I originally thought, that the quantities for some of the recipes (certainly, all that I have made so far) seem incorrect. As I have said above, the quantity of peanut butter seemed far too much (300g); I have now made the poppyseed and parmesan lollipops, and the flapjacks. Both have been failures.
