Product Description

Review

I love visiting National Trust properties and stepping back to a time where interiors featured acres of polished wood panelling, heavy textured brocades and wonderful displays of collector s ephemera, taking a turn around the gardens, then of course heading for the tearoom. The NT has got the market sewn up when it comes to proper cakes so I couldn t wait to see their beautiful new Simply Baking book, which comes out today. It lives up to expectations and I was hard pushed to choose just one cake, as they all look stunning --Reviewed by Sarah Wilson for Country Homes & Interiors Magazine, September 2012

If Sybil's recipe for Strawberry Cream Cake doesn't mentally transport you to an idyllic English country garden that the National Trust lovingly preserves, then nothing will. --Reviewed by Culinaria Libris, September 2012

Award-winning food writer Sybil Kapoor has taken the National Trust's mills, orchards and dairies as her inspiration for this round-up of classic bakes, including scones, Eccles cakes, hazelnut and raisin bread and squidgy Chelsea buns. There are also plenty of gluten-free options. Best bake: Almond blackberry cake." --Waitrose Kitchen Magazine

National Trust Simply Baking is much more than a book of mouth-watering cake recipes, although it has plenty of those. It is divided into themes such as the mill, the larder and the dairy, with savoury as well as sweet recipes. --House & Garden Magazine

National Trust Simply Baking is a comprehensive look at the rich history of the British produce with the majority of recipes accompanied by enticing food shots by Karen Thomas But at the same time it is as much about how British baking might look in the future. Because how can we know where it s going without first understanding where it has been?...this is as much a guide book to some of this country s most treasured heritage as it is to the cakes and bakes that it has inspired. --Handmade Living magazine, November 2012 issue

WE LOVED the whole book. In these days of economic and climatic gloom, how better to cheer yourself up but by knocking up a Seville orange crunch cake, a blackcurrant meringue pie or chocolate violet éclairs. The pictures are gorgeous and the recipes just beg to be tested. --The Jewish Chronicle, October 2012

This is a perfect Christmas present for anyone who loves both to bake and to eat. --http://thefoodiebugle.com/
--House & Garden magazine, November issue

If you are looking for an alternative to the many spin-offs from the BBC s Great British Bake-Off, you could do worse than this chunky, frill-free book. Sybil Kapoor has 30 years experience as both cook and food writer, and the book has a clarity and quiet assurance that makes it accessible to novices yet interesting enough to tempt the seasoned (and seasonal there is a lot on kitchen gardens) baker. --Sunday Telegraph s Christmas gift ideas feature, Sunday 25th November

--House & Garden magazine, November issue

A scrumptious book…brings together an inspiring collection of simple modern baking recipes that have influenced British baking for centuries. --The Oxford Times, 13th December

Much more than a book of mouth-watering cake recipes, although it has plenty of those --House & Garden magazine, November issue

Seasonal recipes, mouth-watering images and helpful text make this clean, contemporary book a year-round companion for any baker --The Edible Garden, April issue

Much more than a book of mouth-watering cake recipes, although it has plenty of those --House & Garden magazine, November issue

I've been on a bit of a cook book roll recently and have managed to find myself some incredible new ones, but this one has to be my favourite. I saw it on the shelf and had to pick it up-it's SUCH a beautiful book. Sybil's intro is really rather heart warming and touching, and she has clearly written this book with a lot of love and care, and attention to detail. Lots of old favourites and some completely new to me (try the Leek and Bacon Froise or the Cinnamon Parsnip Cupcakes), this has been a revelation. Additionally, Sybil goes right back to basics and discusses measurements, weights, temperatures, methods and terminology, really helping to ensure you aren't just following a recipe but really understanding, enabling every baker to amend and adjust the recipes to their own individual tastes and preferences-something I've never really got the hang of until now. Wonderful stuff.

Got this book a few weeks ago and I must say it is a beautiful book. The recipes are easy enough even for a novice baker like myself! It is a beautiful book to own and it takes pride of place on my cookery books book shelf.

You just can't miss the magnificent cake on the front cover of this baking bible. But the insides are equally mouthwatering and delicious. Every type of baking is here and Sybil Kapoor's recipes are clear and precise. This is both a beautiful gift for the baker in your life or a great self purchase for anyone interested in the current national obsession with anything baking. Thoroughly recommended!

I purchased this book after borrowing a copy from a friend and trying out a few of the cake and cheesecake recipes. All of them were great, apart from the scones but then they didn't exactly look light and fluffy in the photo so I wasn't surprised that they were a disaster - more like rock cakes. That said, it is a good book for cakes and desserts, but I am less inspired by the savouries so can't see me wanting to make any of those.

One of the things that I particularly like about the book is that the author gives a bit of background to the recipes, which makes it an interesting read. This approach reminds me of my favourite baking book 'Warm bread and honey cake'. Personally I prefer the recipes in the latter and have tried out many of them and they've always been a great success. 'Simply Baking' is a good book for someone wanting very traditional British recipes, especially if they are not experienced cooks as the author goes into much detail about ingredients and techniques. (Warm bread and honey cake is for the more adventurous baker, who likes to try recipes from around the world).

This is the second Nat. Trust cook book that I have bought and is easy to use and well set out. The recipes are clear and easy to follow. There are some more unusual recipes but the ingredients are not exotic and difficult to find.

I bought a copy of this book at the new Cake & Bake Show and am so glad that i did. The images are beautifully shot and the recipes just jump off the page. i like that the book isn't set out as grouped recipes for sweet, savoury etc but has chapters for cooking with ingredients from your dairy, larder, your kitchen garden and even the orchard. It's bright and colourful with a wonderful selection of delicious recipes and will be a well-used book in my kitchen. it's definitely the perfect Christmas gift book for the baker in your family!

I worked for the NT in the kitchens and know a few of the recipe contributors and they really are great recipes and are really easy to follow, definitely worth a go at the price
