5.0 out of 5 stars BESTSELLER FOR A REASON, 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Traditional British Cake Recipes (Traditional British Recipes Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
It's easy to see how this book is a Kindle bestseller because it's exactly what makes Kindle great -- a low-priced recipe book that's well-written and perfect for your electronic reader. You get all of the traditional favourites in this recipe book -- Victoria Sponge, Fairy Cakes, Rock Cakes -- but you also get some recipes that are less common. We had never heard of Paradise Cake or Parkin but the recipes are written in an easy-to-use manner so it doesn't matter if you've never made the recipe before. Because I'm not the best cook or baker, I choose to use recipe books that are written for people who need things explained! The author does a good job of explaining how to make the cakes and she'll even tell you a little bit about what the cakes are or where they came from.

What was your favourite recipe? NEVER-FAIL BOILED FRUIT CAKE (PERFECT FOR ME!)

Would you recommend this to a friend? I'VE RECOMMENDED THIS TO MY AMERICAN FRIENDS WHO LOVE DOWNTON ABBEY -- THEY WANT TO BAKE AUTHENTIC BRITISH. :-)

What did you like most about this book? YOU GET THE SENSE THAT THIS WAS WRITTEN BY A REAL PERSON WHO HAS ACTUALLY BAKED THESE RECIPES FOR HER FAMILY.
