Book Description

11 Mar 2013
Since reaching the finals in Masterchef in 2010, Stacie Stewart has launched her Beehive Bakery to critical acclaim. Her bakes and cakes have proved enormously popular at festivals and events around the country- and now she has been named judge in the sweet baking category on Simon Cowell's new show, Food.glorious.Food, to be aired in 9 hour-long parts on primetime ITV1. This book includes all of Stacie's most well-loved recipes, from Beehive bars to Cheesecake brownies. She gives a modern twist on traditional bakes, so there's a lemon meringue pie cake, a coconut baked Alaska and a ginger parkin. There are gluten-free recipes too, including Old school bakewell tart and an orange and almond cake. You will find tarts, cakes, biscuits, bars, puddings, breads, sweets and savoury pies. There's something to suit every occasion, with chapters ranging from Hello summer and Mother's Day & vintage tea to The homemade valentine and New year, new you and new baking rules.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had hoped for 18 Aug 2013
Unless you are an avid viewer of Masterchef, you are probably wondering who Stacie Stewart is. I confess, even though I watch Masterchef, I found myself struggling to recall Stacie until I got to the recipe in her book that she spectacularly goofed, and then I remembered.

I had high hopes when I first picked up the book, as I am any book on my favourite topic - baking. After flicking through the book, my first impressions were that the collection of recipes was somewhat uninspired. If you have several baking recipes books, and anyone that is seriously into baking will do, you will find the majority of the recipes you will have a dozen times in the books you already own. Other recipes are familiar staples that have been given a modern make-over. To be fair, the tag line on the front of the book does state `classic cakes', so I suppose that should have been a clue. It is a shame though, because the few that are more original are great, and the ones I tried were perfectly delicious.

The book opens with the usual twee `when I learned to bake' story that you often find at the front of a recipe book, and the author seems desperate to shout of her working class origins. This is followed by a few baking tips, some of which I actually disagreed with, others are obvious and common sense, but I guess useful if you are a complete novice.

The recipes themselves are separated into sections that are not consistent in theme. Some are occasions such as Easter, or Valentine's, but there are also sections for the seasons, and meal times. There is a mixture of sweet and savoury, with a leaning towards the sweet.

The recipes themselves are full of clear instructions, and even include little tips and pointers along the way which is helpful.

Lovely book, have baked the cover cake and not only did it turn out the same, it tasted delicious. Only gave four stars as there was not a picture for every recipe.

Stacie Bakes: Classic cakes and bakes for the thoroughly modern cook
Not the best baking book I own. Didn't really find it that inspiring. Too many photos of Stacie posing for the camera and not enough of the finished items. The recipes may be ok but I just am not really inspired to cook anything from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 19 May 2014
By Nettie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoy watching Stacie on TV & saw her dem at the Food Show at NEC in November. I like Stacies relaxed & friendly style of presenting & I wasn't disappointed in her first book. There are familiar recipes as well as new ones & I'm looking forward to trying them out. I love the splattering of family photos & references, it makes the book feel like you're sitting at the table with a friend exchanging your favourite recipes. Well done Stacie!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic recipes with flavour twists 11 April 2014
Former MasterChef contestant Stacie Stewart has become fairly well known from her stints on various TV shows such as This Morning and Food Glorious Food as the cheerful, beehived recipe creator and judge. The Sunderland native has drafted a book, Stacie Bakes, with treats which can be created for various holidays throughout the year. Unlike, for example, Paul Hollywood, Stewart leans less towards artisan breads and other savoury treats, much more in favour of decadent sweets. The sweets are also quite creative - instead of the same normal recipes that you often get in cookbooks, these have some great twists (the chocolate torte incorporates some coconut, the black forest gateau becomes white chocolate) and so while I will caution that the books is primarily interested in baked goods as opposed to candy or stove top creations, it would be a great fit for bakers who are interested in some fresh twists and flavour combinations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book with lots of savoury and sweet ideas 12 Nov 2013
By HH1965
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the back of reviews and, whilst I have only made a few things so far, all have turned at well - the Glitter Fudge Brownies went down very well at a school cake sale and it is great book to browse through for those comfort baking moments.
