I thought I'd list the recipes contained within the when I was looking to purchase the book, I couldn't find a contents list anywhere :-).

You'll find that Mary Berry uses minimal ingredients, and yet the cakes are superb.

I've listed the recipes below...enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars tony 24 Nov 2009
I have never baked a cake before , However to my wife being in hospital I decided to have a go.

Mary Berrys recipe for Apple and Cinnamon Cake is fantastic. Everyone including my wife and mother in law

said it was delicious. For a novice to make it was easy and I have now got the baking bug and will try some more recipes

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive book on baking 24 Oct 2009
I have several of Mary's books and have found them all to be expertly written and every recipe I have used over the years has produced excellent results without fail. I have received so many compliments on items I have made from Mary's recipes (especially the carrot cake).

Mary clearly explains techniques for beginners and gives tips on storing and freezing cakes, suggestions for variations etc. There are chapters on sponge cakes, fruit cakes, special cakes, traybakes, cheesecakes, meringue, biscuits (and special biscuits), childrens cakes, teabreads, bread and puddings & desserts. Contrary to what another reviewer said, there are some savoury recipes in the book - savoury biscuits, scones, breads, cheese straws etc.

It is worth noting that this book is a compilation of several other of Mary's books (including Ultimate Cakes, Simple Cakes and Puddings & Desserts). However, it is great to have all the best recipes from these books together in one definitive book. I echo another reviewer's comments that it is a pity that there are not more pictures but there are pictures of many of the dishes in the Ultimate Cake Book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb value 3 Oct 2009
An excellent simply written cook book from someone who really knows. (Not a show off, foul mouthed Johnny come lately!)Recipes are easy to follow and cover a wide range of baking, a real Bible! My only minor criticism is that a few more mouth-watering pictures would've been nice.
Brillint value on Amazon, but I have to say, I would pay its cover price it's so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I Expected 2 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great book, and I would highly recommend it. Clear and comprehensive introduction covers everything you need to know before starting out on the easy to follow recipes, and wonderful results. Beautifully illustrated so you know what things should look like, and ingredients clearly listed in a left justified column, so everything is easy to follow. It is in use several times a week, so I don't bother putting it away now. I could wax lyrical about the Crunchy Lemon Cake, Victoria Sponge, and several traybakes. Only downside is I'm using it so much that I'm starting to gain weight. I would recommend this book for beginners and experienced bakers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic 14 Jun 2011
If you love cakes and baking them like I do then this is the book for you. All the recipes I have tried so far work perfectly. It includes many well-known cakes plus many new ones. It includes the best fruit cake I (and friends) have ever eaten, the Victorian pound cake. I could list others but it's more fun to find out for yourself.

Recipes are presented in a very easy to use format and have clearly been tested well beforehand. Mary Berry's Baking Bible is the perfect name as Mary is the Goddess of baking.

5.0 out of 5 stars clear instructions perfect for novice bakers 11 Mar 2010
By D. Rose
We purchased this book by Mary Berry for my sister in law who wanted to start baking more. Many books assume a level of knowledge about techniques and cooking terms which those new to cooking may not always have. This book has clear step by step instructions making it a very good book for those who want to start baking and and the good selection of reciepes make it suitable for those who want to expand their repetoire.

All in all a very good book
