5.0 out of 5 stars perfect brownies everytime 3 Nov 2006
I bought this book for a cake bake day at work. Having never baked anything in my life, I was not hopeful, however the peanut butter chocolate brownies turned out perfectly. The recipe was clear and simple, which was a certain advantage to a novice such as myself. Each recipe has a beautiful photograph, and it has encouraged me to try some more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect biscuits every time! 16 Mar 2008
I took up baking as a hobby last year and this was one of the first books I purchased. I've tried out a third of the recipes in this book; the most notable so far being the chocolate coffee cream fancies, the peanut butter cookies, the coconut fortune cookies and the pistachio biscotti - all of which came out fantastic.

This book if one of many from the Australian Woman's Weekly and what I love about the series is that the recipes are very easy to follow and they really do work - as it says on the cover, they've been 'triple tested' before being published! The recipes are perfect for anyone including complete beginners as there are UK measurments for everything and there's a pictures for every recipe so you know how your biscuits should turn out. I have almost all the baking books from the series now and if you enjoy this book, I can highly recommend 'Simple Slices' and 'Cafe Cakes'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots to choose from 1 July 2008
By Mrs. L
I got this book and a few others from the same series and I highly rate all of them (also chocolate cakes, cafe cakes & simple slices). There is a good variety of recipes with different ingredients to suit different tastes. The peanut butter brownies are a big hit with everyone and the white choc, macadamia & raspberry blodies are to die for!

I bought this little gem of a book because since I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease 3 years ago I've hated nearly every gluten free biscuit or cake I've bought. There is only one exception, but it's purchase price is so inflated, for what it is, the situation pushed me into the kitchen to start baking.

These biscuits are delicious and easy peasy. I like my bickies quite plain, so I don't faff about with frosting, icing, drizzled or dipped in chocolate, etc. I can hardly believe I've successfully made, amaretti, passionfruit cookies, greek almond biscuits and my favourites so far, the orange polenta biscuits.

There is an interesting section of biscotti, the dry hard things in jars in coffee shops. They look very interesting. You make a dough, bake it like a small artisan loaf, slice it and then bake the slices. Dunkers!

I haven't strayed into the brownie section, my waistline forbids such indulgences. I'm a bit of a strange old bird, a woman who doesn't particularly like chocolate! But if I did, they look delicious. I might make some to give away over Christmas.

There are 28 recipes, each photographed, you can't go wrong. Altogether, I'm likely to use and eat 15 which is a high proportion of use of any cookery manual (It's mainly the 8 choc/brownie ones I'm avoiding.) Lastly there is a very good conversion chart of measures, dry measures, liquids, lengths and oven temperatures. Very handy since I've erroneously bought a USA edition of a Nigella cookbook! I'm sure I'm not the only one who's done this and now I know where to look.

5.0 out of 5 stars delicious 27 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Having received this book through the post at a school where i am employed i was asked to look through it for the food technology teachers. We were very impressed with the recipes which were simple yet looked delicious and also with the way the book was presented with an index at the back explaining measurements equipment and etc.
As a school establishment we are looking into ordering more of the same series for use in the classroom in the future for the students to use.
