4.0 out of 5 stars magnolia bakery, 23 July 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook: Old-Fashioned Recipes from New York's Sweetest Bakery (Hardcover)
I have had this book only a couple of weeks and i've already tried about five of the recipes. If you dont have any american measuring cups its worth buying a set just so you can use this book. I found the recipes very easy to follow, and the layout of the book old fashioned and charming. All of the recipes i tried worked out great, apart from one, and i think that was a botch on my part. I will most certainly consider buying another book by the same author. The only problem i had was finding 'corn syrup'in this country, which is included in a few of the recipes.

If you subsitute corn syrup for glycerine, you should get the same results. I have tried for many years to obtain corn syrup in the UK, but nowhere stocks it.

Selfridges stock it, as do some of the delis with American sections. May be harder to find outside of London.

'Lets Eat Direct' are a store based in Milton Keynes but have a very good postal service and they stock corn syrup as well as many other American foods. Their website is http://www.letseatdirect.com/

Typically Golden syrup is used in the UK for baking, it has a similar colour and consistency.
