This review is from: How to Bake (Hardcover)
i was very excited to receive this as a chritmas present. Baked a loaf which came out ok. However tried the puff pastry which was a complete disaster. Why insist on this type of pastry where almost everywhere else rough puff seems to be recomneded as the quivalent with much less work?
tried the banana bread. The instruction '..cream together the bananas and sugar until fluffy." if you try this you will end up with a runny mush - do you think mr hollywood means cream together butter and sugar?
soda bread came out heavy and doughy. maybe its me but a bit more proof reading might be an idea. shame
