Product Description

Review

A cookery book which is mouth-wateringly delightful ... the perfect selection of recipes ... -- Fiona Tarrant, Oxford Times, 13 December 1996

Even allowing for my boyish hyperbole, and growing enthusiasm for the muffin, this is surely the definitive book on the subject. -- Bill Clapperton, Edinburgh Evening News, 7 April 1998

If you like making muffins, you will learn more from this book than from anywhere else ... -- Orlando Murrin, BBC Good Food Magazine, November 2001

From the Author

Muffins have enjoyed immense popularity in Canada and the United States over the past couple of decades. This comes as no surprise: muffins are simple enough for the complete novice to bake successfully and healthy enough to enjoy without guilt!

Soon after moving from Canada to Britain in 1993, I noticed there was a growing interest in muffins here, but muffin recipes were scarce. I heard of various attempts by friends to import recipes from North America but always with disappointing results. This was inevitable as flour and measures differ significantly from one side of the Atlantic to the other.

As I sorted out these differences for myself, I enjoyed developing fail-proof, delicious muffin recipes for the British kitchen. (North American volume equivalents are also provided.) Muffins Fast and Fantastic was born! Every one of these recipes is baked and enjoyed regularly in our home, and has been carefully tested many, many times.

From its humble beginnings, Muffins Fast and Fantastic has grown by leaps and bounds: it has now sold well over 225,000 copies. Clearly this is the muffin book Britain was waiting for! In June 2001 the third revised and enlarged edition was launched, with the addition of lavish illustrations and gluten-free and wheat-free recipes and tips.

Muffins Fast and Fantastic has continued to evolve as I follow through on ideas for improving the recipes. Thus, while the 2008 edition substantially reproduces that of 2001, it also includes some updated information and variations.

Susan Reimer's 'Muffins Fast and Fantastic' is the only book you will ever need to make perfect muffins. It gives a brief history of the muffin and breaks down the ingredients with advice on alternatives to cater for specific diets. The first basic recipe can be experimented with but there are some wonderful, practical recipes for both sweet and savoury muffins to suit all tastes. The book itself is inexpensive, sturdy for use in the kitchen and, what's more, all the recipes are in Imperial measures and easy to follow. If you want to become a master muffin maker - look no further.

I've had absolutely no disasters with any of the recipes in this book. Every single one has been excellent. Best of all, Susan Reimer includes details on how to adapt the recipes for people with food allergies. Following her instructions, I've even produced muffins free from wheat, gluten, milk and eggs that have been fantastic! Wholeheartedly recommended.

This book may look small but its an excellent and well written little number. Not only have I cooked every recipe but it has also inspired me to experiment with flavours that I have made up. Its so simple and easy to read and as yet, no disasters to report. The children are delighted that I am making muffins bigger and better than the local bakery. I am thrilled that not only are they a quarter of the price but I know exactly what ingredients go into each one.
Buy this book, its money well spent. The only thing that will suffer is your waistband!

Having been a disaster when it comes to anything involving flour I could not believe it when I opened the oven to find perfect looking muffins, still unconvinced I thought that surely they must taste awful then! But no, they tasted superb, the whole family love them. Such an easy book to follow, no kitchen should be without it!

Never having baked a muffin in my life I was prepared for a disaster - but no - excellent results every time! Family and friends are hooked. Susan's muffins even have that 'just-baked' taste, texture and freshness the following day (unlike Delia's which can only be eaten fresh from the oven, I am told!). Go on, buy a copy and try out these delicious recipes - you can't fail!

Absolutely delicious muffins every time. The directions are very easy to follow and even those with a busy schedule can find the time to whip up fresh muffins. It's a toss up as to whether the Apple Spice or Iced Carrot Muffins are the favourite of my family and friends. But all are great. I have introduced a friend to this recipe book and am now purchasing another copy as a gift for my teenage nephew, a budding chef. If you like fresh muffins, this book is great!

I loved this book. Not only are there plenty of great recipes but this book was written for people in the UK to use so there is a lot of information on measuring in cups and the best ingredients to use which I found really useful.

This is one of the best cake making books ever. Everyone will enjoy them because they are so fool proof. You will have no disasters. ( I haven't )..
I make them for the children to put in their lunch boxes etc.. and they always take extra for their friends.
The pictures are a good indication of what they should look like and the instructions are brilliant. This is by far the best one. The only bad thing is you will loosen your waist band..Good luck..
