I bought this book because my son recommended it. He is working his way through all the delicious cake recipes. The recipes are straightforward and the instructions easy to follow. We've found several that are free of flour and that are simply too delicious to describe. Flourless Chocolate Cake (p.82)is food to die for. The Ginger Cake (p.55) is one of my favourites but don't just buy the book and enjoy looking at the pictures - try them yourself. I particularly like the helpful advice for troubleshooting anything that hasn't quite worked out right. I don't think I'm going to need it though, this cookbook just inspires confidence!
