Product Description

Review

The recipes are comprehensive but extremely user friendly and they work! Chose something that fits into your timeframe and lifestyle and experience the peace of mind and body that comes with the wafting aromas of the freshly baked... The book's design makes it look 'homely', exactly the right feel for the recipes inside. The photography is honest, simple and informative and the content is pure Sue Lawrence. Another winner! (Australian Gourmet Pages)

There's something for everyone from all four corners of the world. And for those who prefer a healthy alternative, Sue has included a chapter of guilt-free treats. This is definitely a book for anyone who prefers "homemade" to "shop bought" goodies! (My Weekly)

Excellent recipes (Independent)

If you are looking to fill your kitchen with the delicious smell of home-made baking, then this is the book for you (Cakes & Sugarcraft)

Baking is perhaps the most daunting aspect of cookery, and this collection will give confidence to the novice and inspiration to the practised (Sunday Tasmanian)

A good-looking collection of bread, cake, biscuit and pastry recipes. Sue Lawrence has a warm and welcoming approach to her subject, and includes ideas for variations and anecdotes, which make the book perfect for bedtime reading. The addition of a few wheat-, dairy- and sugar-free recipes also means those on special diets don't need to miss out... The recipes work and the results are delicious (Sainsbury's Magazine)

Full of inspiring recipes (Olive magazine)

This is a personal collection of inventive, exotic and luxurious baking that embraces classic cakes and biscuits as well as new discoveries and imports (Telegraph)

This is a good, well-thought-out book, with something to appeal to everyone (BBC Good Food Magazine)

Just the ticket for the budding baker and an inspiration to the accomplished cook (Wine & Dine)

Rainy-day cooks will adore Sue Lawrence's cockle-warming BOOK OF BAKING with its international flavours: from New York cheesecake, Argentinian millionaire's shortbread and Australian Lamingtons to tattie scones and Forfar bridies (Scotsman)

One of the finest baking books I have clapped eyes on for a long time... Highly recommended (Bracknell & Ascot Times)

If you wanted just one baking book, this'd be it... Lawrence's Scots-sensible recipes promise baking heaven (Australian Gourmet Traveller)

'One of the best baking books around, full of really good sweet and savoury recipes that actually do work' (Sunday Tribune)

'Of the many new books I have received in the past year, the one that stands out most is Sue Lawrence's Book of Baking. The sticky, batter-splattered cover and well-thumbed pages bear testament to its popularity in this house, especially page 107. Warm date cake with fudge topping is one of the easiest cakes to make and scores a hit every time. Delicious, as are all the recipes in the book' (Elaine Lemm, Yorkshire Life)

This is an excellent and very thorough book that covers all the essential recipes that are associated with baking. With beautiful photos to accompany the text it is hard to stop yourself wanting to whip up some of the food there and then! Sue Lawrence consistently produces books of a high calibre and this is no exception. The recipes range from the traditional to the more innovative and each are accompanied with a story about the origins of the recipe or an anecdote associated with the recipe which in themselves are a joy to read. Too often i find that recipe writers simply plunk down the recipe with no introduction to it, with this author's book you come away knowing not just recipes but also their background and a bit of the author's life. If we are being honest not all of us will have time to produce every recipe in the book - as much as we would like to! - but with this book it is enough to enjoy it as a good read, standing alone from the cooking element of it.
In conclusion i would urge that people buy this book so as to rediscover the baking skills they didn't know that they had or even just to have something very comforting to read at bedtime. All in all a great book.

I purchased this cook book having seen Sue Lawrence on UKFood demonstrating her coca cola chocolate cake, and have been hooked ever since! There is a broad spectrum of home baking recipies - all easy to follow and all delicious! The carrot cake has become a favourite at my daughters school fete's.

This book has been borrowed by all my family and we have not had one failure yet.

Ok, it may not be "healthy" today to enjoy home baking but as sue says at least you know what is in your own home cooking and baking with your children is fun for all concerned, if a little messy.

I cannot praise this book highly enough. Also, the cola cake sounds awful but is VERY tasty!

I initially borrowed this book from the library, but when I made nine recipes in the first week it became clear I needed my own copy. Since then I've baked from it repeatedly, with delicious results every time. The book is quite broad in scope, with savoury recipes featuring as heavily as sweet ones, and almost everything is just begging to be tried (the exceptions are a couple of cloyingly sweet childhood treats - the author clearly has a sweeter tooth than I do!). My only complaint is that the "healthy" section is nothing of the sort - Ms Lawrence seems to think that the inclusion of oats in a recipe negates the unhealthiness of large quantities of butter and sugar. Still, if you accept that baking is best enjoyed in moderation, this book is hard to fault.

Everything i have made from this book has worked brilliantly, I use this book over and over again. The carrot cake is one of the best I have ever tasted, its actually called Passion cake in the book, and the Brownies and the Blondies are to die for...I have had several marriage proposals! I highly reccomend this book to anyone, simply fab!
