Book Description

8 Nov 2012 MRS BEETON

As a nation, there is no denying that we have a sweet tooth - and classic recipes such as Eccles Cakes, Victoria Sandwich Cake, scones and shortbread, have stood the test of time. MRS BEETON'S CAKES AND BAKES is a gorgeous and practical recipe book for the home cook, packed with delicious desserts and sweet treat ideas for any occasion.

All of the recipes have been drawn from Mrs Beeton's original BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT and have been updated for the 21st-century kitchen. Combined with sound, modern advice on how to source good food, plus detailed information on ingredients and equipment, and illustrations of all the techniques required, this is the go-to mini book for any aspiring or experienced home cook.
