2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty pictures, Disappointing recipes!, 17 Oct. 2011
By 
This review is from: Home Bake: Cakes, muffins, tarts, cheesecakes, brownies and puddings, with foolproof tips from Master Pātissier (Hardcover)
I'm an accomplished cook and have tried some of eric's recipes. I always follow the recipe exactly during the first trial and I have to say that I'm very disappointed with the results.

The 'flour free orange and lavender cake' has without doubt not been tested by eric's team for the home kitchen.
Not only is it far too sweet, it also doesn't fit the size of tin the method asks for and to top it off the flavour of the lavender is totally lost by the spices and very thin sugar syrup. If one is to follow the recipe, it is positively impossible to have a syrup that looks remotely similar to the picture.

Perhaps Eric should have a blog that displays corrections to his recipes and perhaps try them in a home kitchen first - not just at an industrial scale!

Hi there, interesting review, as I've had problems with the lemon and poppy seed muffins with lemon curd? I dont know if it's me or the recipe thats wrong, as I do tons of baking and never had any problems with the outcome but these just dont work. Please let me know if you've had any success with them, thanks.
