Book Description

5 July 2012

Discover the secrets of great baking with Scandilicious flair...

Scandinavian baking is among the best in the world. Deeply ingrained in the culture, it is a distinctive part of the Nordic identity, history and well-being. Welcome to a place where cakes made with real butter are celebrated rather than feared, where entire festivals are dedicated to baking and where it is believed there is nothing quite like the thrill of making one's own bread, Christmas biscuits or cardamom buns.

Following on from the success of SECRETS OF SCANDINAVIAN COOKING...SCANDILICIOUS, Signe Johansen shares with us a mouth-watering selection of traditional and modern baked treats. Think moreish müsli bread hot from the oven; pumpkin, cheese and sage muffins that pack a real flavour punch; and irresistable redcurrant mazarin tart or upside-down blueberry cake - perfect for summer entertaining.

Product Description


Signe Johansen celebrates the gloriously flavourful world of Scandinavian baking . . . The straightforward and honest recipes, full of warming spices and feel-good grains, are enhanced by mouthwatering photography - Ms Johansen's enthusiasm and passion for hearty, comforting Scandinavian fare shines through (Delicious, Book of the Month)

Signe's second book maintains the fjord-fresh Scandinavian tastes of Scandilicious, with traditional and modern ideas. Her use of grains such as spelt and barley adds texture and flavour to more healthy baking (BBC Good Food)

Bakers sick of being assulted by frosting frou-frou and cutesy cakes every time they open a book will delight in Sig's earthy recipes . . . she's clever and creative. (Metro)

Signe Johansen is highly qualified to spread some Scandinavian baking love... you'll be busy for hours delving into these unusual treats (Fork magazine)

Full of flavours and clever ideas (Alice Hart, Saga magazine)

The coolest cook to bang the drum for Scandinavian cooking. (Taste Journal, 2012)

Perfect for seasoned bakers... these are chic updates on the usual Christmas bakes. (Olive, December 2012)

In a year crowded with baking books, this collection stands out. Johansen, from Norway, has the two qualities you want in a baker: flawless taste and rigorous technique. Her oat cookies are the best i've ever made, and sticky cinamon bun-cake, with a suspicion of cardamom, is the stuff of Nordic dreams... Scandilicious indeed. (Bee Wilson, Sunday Times Books of the Year)

You could have sold anything in 2012 by sticking the word 'Scandinavian' on it but this confident second book by cook and anthropologist Johansen reminds you why. Some of the world's best baked goods, presented in her now trademark easy style'. (Food Books of the Year, Financial Times)

Book Description

An introduction to Scandinavian baking, with more gorgeous recipes for breads, pastries, cakes and biscuits from Signe Johansen, all oozing with Scandilicious flair...

I already own (and use) Signe's first book "Secrets of Scandinavian Cooking" and so was eager to read her second book. Once again there is the same straightforward approach to recipes as I found in her first book but this second book seems weightier, more assured in content. I say I'm not a natural baker, I feel more confident in the more forgiving savoury cooking and (whispers it) don't really like overblown, over-sweet cakes with copious icing and please don't get me started on super iced cupcakes! But as with all things Scandinavian, the recipes here are well-conceived and balanced. Sweetness is restrained so it never becomes cloying but just enough. On receiving this book I immediately baked Signe's 'Sticky Ginger Spice Cake', a moist cake that improves everyday (that it lasts which may not be long). I already was a fan of her 'Chocolate & Orange Marmalade Loaf Cake' (recipe was on an old blog post of hers) and should say that that cake has had rave comments each time I've made it and is easy to make. Toasted Oat, Date and Hazelnut Cookies are delicious and are perfect mid-afternoon treats. Yesterday I made the Plaited Milk Loaf and although mine may not have been as perfectly formed as the one photographed in the book it didn't look bad for a first attempt, tasted delicious and was simple to make (once I remembered how to plait!).

Once again the photography is gorgeous, the layout clear and easy to use and the instructions very clear and confident. I can honestly say that, for a non-baker (although that's changing), I have seen loads of recipes I'd love to try and will. This book is a keeper. Today I realised that I haven't even tried any recipe in the Savouries section! That's the next baking session. Absolutely recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 17 July 2012
By Mariana
This book is truly wonderful! The recipes are mouth watering and they come with interesting information and tips. Possibly not the best for someone with little experience, but easy enough for those who have baked something before.

I recommend it fully! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Feeding My Addiction 12 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Being completely up-front and honest from the start, I have to admit to a certain addiction to baking/cooking books. I love 'em. Can't get enough of 'em and would probably have ALL the baking books produced if I thought I could get away with it.

Having ancestral connection to Scandinavia I have a particular love of Nordic cooking and baking so this was always going to be fairly close to the top of my current wish list and, in a moment of weakness, I bought it. I'm not disappointed - the pictures are lovely (and is that half the battle with food books?) and the instructions are clear. The favourites are there as is the use of cardomom and cinnamon and all those other lovely Scandi ingredients.

I don't think I'm in a position to say whether this is better than other books of the same ilk as I really can't give an unbiased critique of baking books - I find something in all of them to be excited about. However, this is, I would suggest, one of the better ones and, if you have space on your shelves, a useful and happy addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars best brownies ever! 26 Mar 2013
By Trisha
I now have both Signe's books and they are great. Easy to follow with interesting and 'different' recipes. I was lucky enough to go on one of her baking courses at the Leiths Cookery School, which was really helpful in learning to use fresh yeast, etc - I think otherwise I might not have tried making the Kardemommesnurrer (cardamom buns). But actually they were very easy and are absolutely delicious. The recipe makes loads but you can freeze them easily and just take out a few to heat in the oven when needed. Strangely, I seem to need them every day... I've made a number of biscuits etc too - all very good. And the brownies are the best I've come across - gooey but not too sweet, and easy to make. My only word of 'warning' is to take her oven timings with a pinch of salt - I've found my fan oven takes much longer (although it doesn't with other people's recipes).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 17 Jan 2013
By BShep
Baked my first recipe (blueberry upside down cake), very easy to do and tasted delicious. Our guests actually said it was one of the best cakes they'd ever eaten. Not bad for a first attempt. Also the book is absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to try more ..
