For a British buyer, there are 2 things you need to know about Joy The Baker:

1 - Joy is a blogger. This means that in this cookbook, her recipes are accompanied by the kinds of things she talks about on her blog. Sometimes she talks about relationships or future children, sometimes she will recall childhood memories, sometimes she will declare her undying love for peanut butter, sometimes she will be having an imaginary conversation with you and sometimes she will just be writing about how much she loves the recipe on that page. Her style is sweet, chatty and fun. The advantage of this is that you get the feeling that Joy is there with you, telling you how to make these gorgeous recipes and that everything is going to be alright. However, if you're just wanting a book that simply gives you instructions on how to make something, each recipe's introduction may get on your nerves.

2 - Joy is American. This means that all her oven temperatures are given in Fahrenheit and her measurements are in cups or ounces. If you're not familiar with these measurements, find a conversion chart (easily done through a quick Google search), print out and keep inside the cover. Small hint, don't try to convert cups to grams - volume to weight rarely works well! The fact Joy is American also means that sometimes she uses spice blends that you can't get in the UK. Again, this is something that you can Google and find out the ingredients to replicate or alternatively, use your intuition and make up your own spice blend. Despite these transatlantic technical issues, the fact that Joy is American means that she does amazing things with bacon, peanut butter, buttermilk, avocados and popcorn - the kinds of which we don't often see over here.

I've now tried 3 recipes out of this book and it was AMAZING! The best chocolate buttercream frosting I have ever tasted; crazy cookie ideas like Peanut Butter Bacon cookies -- and it was delicious!! I'm looking forward to trying more and highly recommend the cookbook to anyone looking for a good dessert recipe! The product itself arrived in perfect condition within the projected time frame, so no troubles there.

This is my go to cookbook for so many cakes now. The kitchen sink carrot cake, simple vanilla cupcakes, chocolate bourbon-spiked banana bread, pumpkin bundt cake are just a few of the recipes I use time and time again. If you have an ice cream maker and you love peanut butter then try the chocolate and salty peanut butter ice cream. It was hard not to eat it all! And yes this book has American measurements and temps. In this modern world there is no excuse not to go out and buy yourself a set of cups. I bought this set on amazon and they work perfectly http://www.amazon.co.uk/VonShef-Quality-Stainless-Measuring-Measures/dp/B00DTTJR8K/ref=sr_1_5?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1412022178&sr=1-5&keywords=measuring+cups. Temps are easy to convert online. Her recipes are "never fail" and not complicated. You will not be disappointed!

One of my favourite cookbooks on the shelf! Delicious and consistent recipes from the always lovely Joy the Baker, written in her immediate, personable and downright charming style. One that you'll keep coming back to, as much for the writing as the recipes!

The book is packed with more sweet and less savour recipes.
There is all Joy's joy, she is waiting on every page with her smile, warmth, ironic distance and laugh. oh, and cookies. just love them...

I love this book! As well as the modern, delicious and easy recipes there are quirky tips such as how to make your own vanilla extract or soft brown sugar if you've run out and can't get to a shop, and it's all done in really friendly, chatty style. Yes, it is slightly inconvenient to have to convert American cups into metric measurements but it only takes a few minutes to jot them down or, as others have suggested, buy American cups.

I bought this as a present for my wife who is a big fan of Joy's blog. Book is really good and contains a lot of mouth watering pictures! Only word of warning is that measurements tend to be in cups so you may want to but them also
