4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious reading, 27 Oct 2011
This review is from: Step-by-Step Baking (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great book with 100's of recipes from breads, crumpets, teacakes to scones, fairy cakes and brandy snaps and much much more!

There are some very nice pictures of the various items you can bake in the front of the book, although I noticed some of the pictures are duplicated from one page to the next? I am not quite sure why, I think it may be an editing error! But there are also at least 80 recipes that have photographic instructions, so you know exactly what you should be doing at each step and what your mix should look like. There are also many simpler recipes that are instruction only, but in thoery you can't go wrong following the recipes!

A warning - The book itself is hardback and is EXTREMELY heavy. I am a fit 37 year old and this book even makes my arms hurt to lift, so although this may be a strange observation, it is worth bearing this in mind if you are buying this for someone a little frailer or who may have arthritis of the hands and may struggle to hold the book.

The cover has shiny pink cup cakes on it (the picture does not really show the shine) and looks rather pretty.

The pages are smooth and quite thick (which adds to its weight), so can be easily wiped if they get mixture splashed onto them.

On the whole this is a very nice recipe book that I would recommend not only to a beginner baker, but to the avid baker also.
