Product Description

Book Description

Latest research from MINTEL has found that in the last five years alone sales of home baking products have risen by 25% to reach GBP429 million this year. Over the next 5 years MINTEL expects the market to grow by an estimated 28% to reach almost GBP550 million by 2011, crashing through the half billion pound mark as soon as 2009. Today, almost half of shoppers are baking from scratch, with cakes proving to be the most popular option. Sales of home baking products such as cake and flour mixes have grown by 34% between 2001 and 2006, compared to just 8% growth in the shop-bought cakes market.

5.0 out of 5 stars 200 Cakes and Bakes 11 April 2010
By Shaya TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Yum, yum, yum, yum! What more can be said!!!
From the first page to the last, this book is full of lovely yummy recipes for different cakes. Small cakes, tray bakes, Centre piece cakes, teatime loaves, cookies, meringue gateaux and plenty more. Every one as Yummy as the other!! Found out this also has recipes for Hot Cross Buns (needed one for Easter and found one on the internet as all my cook books were void of bun recipes) All are easy to follow with clear instructions to follow and a full page colour picture of every cake in the book and also some have alternative sugestions like adding coffee or Chocolate or fruits etc.
Lovely little book with a stay flat binding and wipe clean cover, although I usually put mine in a book stand but after using it a few times it does loosen at the binding. Mine was stiff at first.
These are a great series of books and would recommend them to any cook, amateur or professional.
Oh and finally, if like me you have one or two of the 101 Good Food recipe books, they are different. I have the Cakes and Bakes from both series and they have very different recipes in them.
Well worth it and at a great price too!

By Paul Stewart VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This little book has the title 200 cakes but there are actually 100 recipes with 100 variations.

The recipes are well presented, with a photograph on one page and recipe on the facing page.

There is a guide on preparation times and cooking times. I think the average preparation time is about 20 minutes.

There are sections for small cakes, biscuits, tray bakes, large cakes and my favourite - No bake cakes.

Because of the small size, it is easy to carry to the market but does not lie flat on the workbench which is a minor irritation.

So far, we have enjoyed every 'bake' and are looking forward to trying the others.

At this price, these books are a bargain. Going to buy more as presents for my children.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love these books.... 21 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have several of these Hamlyn cookbooks and they are really simple and straightforward with good instructions and nice pictures as well. The book is not too large and clunky so if you have a small kitchen like me you won't have valuable space taken up on your counter. Plenty of favourites to choose from and some interesting recipes I hadn't tried before. I'm a keen baker and this is a good quick reference useful for beginners to average bakers- there are no complex methods in here.... I think the Hamlyn team do pick recipes that really do taste great. Excellent and Yummy.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant................. 27 May 2012
By Rob Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My first impression was ooh that's a small book, comparing it to the others my wife has.

Her first impression was brilliant, the size is ideal, she doesn't have any more space for another huge book, what with all the new gadgets and dry fryers etc filling up the limited space our kitchen has.

The book is full of mouth watering recipes from big cakes, to little cakes, fancy ones, cookies, muffins, meringues, 200 in total. Each is illustrated with a good picture which is a must so you know what it is meant to look like.

Jayne my wife has today cooked one of the cookie recipes, she say's its brilliant, easy to follow, no daft ingredients that you have to specially buy, she enjoys cooking and I enjoy the results, the cookies were yummy, polished off by me, my little boy and our dog in one sitting, three very happy eaters.

Can't wait to taste some of the others things, I love meringue and have spotted a lovely looking picture that I have left open on the kitchen table, hope Jayne takes the hint.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good value cook book 19 Jun 2012
By josie82 TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This small and compact cookery book is part of Hamlyn's All Colour Cookbook 200 series. Following on from previous books, this follows the format of having one page for the recipe and the next for a full colour photograph of the finished item.

The instructions are clear showing you how many the recipe makes, preparation time, cookery time as well as a list of ingredients (in both grams and ounces). There's no calorie information which is a blessing in book like this and there's no waffling. It's just instructions which are clear and easy to follow.

There are 7 chapters in the book. These are: little cakes, cookies, traybakes, centrepiece cakes, cut-&-come-again cakes, pastries and no-bake cakes.

Sometimes these books are a little hit and miss but I really did enjoy this one and will see myself using it. It's got a good blend of traditional cakes and bakes as well as twists on old favourites. Basically there's something for everyone.

If you're looking for a cheap cookery book that's good value for money then you can't go wrong with this book. 5 stars.

Bought this for my grown up son who loves cooking. I've been cooking cakes for over 50 years and recon I know most variations but there are plenty of new ideas here. It's so good I'm gonna buy myself a copy too. Plenty of things here that my family would love to eat.
