This is a lovely muffin baking cookbook, with some fabulous recipes. The book is split into different sections like chocolate muffins, nut and spice muffins; fruit muffins, savoury muffins (you get the idea) and so far the two recipes I tried were yummy. They were Cinnamon swirl muffins and vanilla choc chip muffins. The majority of the recipes have a simple list of ingredients and very simple method (mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl, mix the wet ingredients in another bowl, then combine and put into cases and bake). The book is a UK published one so its all grams and mls, rather than the american measurement of 'cups', and for those very occasional hard to find items (like buttermilk), it gives an easy alternative. As a novice baker I've had no probs following the recipes and the results have been great. I can't wait to start another batch. Its a lovely book just to flick through as there are pictures I think for every recipe (a must for me), the hardest part is deciding what to try next!

The book has got some lovely pictures for inspiration. It includes great tasting muffins which are really, really easy to make. There are savoury as well as sweet muffins - so something for everyone.
There are some basic tips to allow your muffins to come out really yummy. So I'd certainly recommend this book to anyone who is a novice at baking, as well as to those who are confident with their baking gear.

I've just recently bought this book, and have tried two recipes so far. They were both a great success and much appreciated by the people I gave them to! I like that it has such a wide variety of recipes, including lots of tasty looking savoury, gluten free/healthier options. It also has a small trouble shooting section at the front which I found useful. Think this should be a good source of tasty snacks for a while:).

My 12 year old daughter borrowed this book from the library because she wanted to try making muffins, she's had great results so far without any help from me whatsoever. I'm so impressed I want to try making some too and of course I'm going to buy a copy of the book. There are so many different varieties to choose from, sweet, savoury, healthy, special diets and some of them contain surprising ingredients like cola and beer. The recipes are laid out nicely and the pictures colourful, all the ingredients are in English measurements and there are useful tips at the front of the book.
