I thought I'd list the recipes contained within the book...as 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.

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.

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

As always, Mary Berry's recipes look delicious and are clearly written. Everything I have ever done from her cookbooks is foolproof and I look forward to working my way through this. My grandchildren are going to be delighted!

Although I love to bake, I wanted to buy a book which gave me all the basic recipes for reference and since Mary Berry is the baker of the moment I thought I couldn't go wrong. BIG mistake. I was OK with the cakes and breads that I had made myself previously, but whenever I tried a new recipe, I found myself coming unstuck due to the omission of important information such as what the consistency should look like on some recipes to how not to add ALL the ingredient stated on other recipes. I caught myself on many an occasion consulting Mr Internet to fill in the gaps that Mary Berry left behind. I wish I hadn't given away my 1950's Home Management Cookery Books :-(

initially on browising this book i felt that it lacked basic hints for a beginner like me,however I stand corrected as I have now had a good look and read of this book as well as trying out various receipes with I may say with success. Yes its a good book for beginner and anyone wanting to learn new tricks.

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.

I was looking for a book to help me get back into baking and this one has more than fulfilled my expectations. As other reviewers have commented, the recipes are easy to follow and there's really no faffing about. I have worked my way through a good number of recipes and all have been successful. It's also great to have so many classic cake recipes in just one place. Would highly recommend it if you are coming back to baking like me, or for someone who is just starting out and needs a variety of good reliable recipes to make a confident start.
