Mabel Roark's `Bread Making Made Easy' is a short and sweet book that, of course, spans recipes but also basic information on breads of all varieties as well. The first couple of chapters cover ground on an assortment of topics including why it is better to bake your own bread for health reasons and what ingredients you can expect to use in bread-making. It is much more than just a recipe book.

As a complete novice to bread making I found this e-book was a gentle immersion to this new endeavor, and I can't wait to try my hand at making chapati bread. On that note, many bread making recipe books only cover bread that is baked in a loaf for things like sandwich-making but I loved that there were recipes for chapati and naan bread, as I'm a complete lover of foreign foods - particularly Indian.

The recipe section handily lists the baking equipment needed for each bread alongside the list of ingredients, which is wonderful for those who aren't sure exactly what is the right `kit' to be using. I also really love how Roark has sprinkled random bread facts throughout the whole book as I have always liked gathering small snaps of knowledge about various things.

My only issues with Roark's e-book are that at times the formatting is a little off-kilt and there is no comprehensive list of the recipes available, but I can assure you that the content more than makes up for such small mishaps.

Overall, if you're looking for a short and snappy guide to bread making without wanting to be submerged in far too many recipes then this is a good place to go. Never made bread before? Try this for starters!

A very large selection of bread recipes. Did not know that so many types were in existence for the home baker to try.

It was not what I was looking for.There were no recipes until I had read one third of the book.American measurements don't come easily to me.
