5.0 out of 5 stars Baking made easy - and cheap! 6 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Baking is very much in fashion at the moment so we have seen many new baking books off the back of this trend such as the Great British Bake-off alumni, but Charlotte Pike has tailored her book to the new generation of bakers - students - but also incorporating those who might not have been at uni for a while but still have budget, space or equipment constraints.

Baking can be a real social activity, not only in the making but in the eating, and baking itself would be a great way of socialising at uni and bringing people together. Given the general (low) quality of student diets and their mutual love of items provided for free, I can well imagine myself a few years ago rustling up some of these cakes and bringing them to seminars etc to share with my fellow students as a bit of an ice-breaker or just a shared treat.

I would really recommend these books to anyone baking on a budget or eager to embrace the trend, or for people heading off to self-catering uni accommodation in the near future. I would have loved to have these books when I was at uni so they would make a great going away present. I have the general cookbook as well, and it's equally as good. Highly recommended, a really great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hungry Student Easy Baking book 11 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If there was ever a book to get you into baking then this would be it. I have loved making all of the quick breads such as tortillas, flatbreads, pizzas, naans, soda bread and cheesy caterpillar bread.
Charlotte's instructions, if you are worried about going wrong, are concise, very detailed and exacting which will provide you with all the information you need to make a successful bake.
As a student, this book would have saved me a fortune. I was always spending a fortune in the bakery for lunch, not to mention the temptation of afternoon treats but if I had taken this baking book off with me as a new student, I could have had so much fun baking and sharing out wonderful sweets with my house mates. We all loved food but relied upon the local shops far too much.
Charlotte's muffin recipes are something I would recommend if you are a baking beginner. Once tried, you will never go back to shop bought again. And the money saved from home baking will be very much appreciated.
The introduction pages of this book are also incredibly valuable and will advise and educate you in many ways, you will feel ready to get in the kitchen.
I would recommend this book to anyone, not just students, who is keen to learn more about baking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Baking Book for Students 10 Aug 2013
Affordable and comprehensive collection of recipes.Especially liked the loaf cake recipes, rarely found elsewhere.
Lavishly illustrated recipes which will inspire the novice or experienced baking enthusiast to get baking.Useful sections covering equipment for the budget conscious student and techniques and tips in plain English. Made the Chocolate Brownies- easy recipe, excellent result

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes and easy to follow instructions 9 Aug 2013
This is a brilliant baking book. I'm not a student, but I do appreciate easy-to-follow, quick and tasty recipes, and this book is full of them! And what's more, most can be done with a wooden spoon, a mixing bowl and a couple of tins - perfect for those with limited cupboard space for storing bake-ware.

There are great pictures, clear ingredients lists (and the recipes tend to use ingredients that are easily accessible, unlike a lot of other books I've tried), step by step recipe instructions, and I'm yet to find a recipe in this book that doesn't turn out as it should. The muffin recipes are particularly good, especially the carrot, apple and sultana ones.

So overall, if you're looking for interesting and tasty cakes and bakes that can be thrown together in very little time and with very little fuss, then I'd heartily recommend this book!

Even established cook's need a basic general baking book, so I purchase this one. The other reason to buy it is because it is for students on a tight budget, most of the recipes are economical too!
