Product description

It's not hard to see why some cakes and bakes become classics, with family recipes handed down through the generations. You have only to sink your fork into a moist lemon drizzle cake or enjoy the smell of freshly-baked cinnamon buns to understand why there are some sweet treats that we simply can't resist returning to again and again. This book is a celebration of those recipes, drawing from a broad culinary heritage. From cookies and cakes to pastries and desserts, Victoria charts the delicious range of some of our much-loved classics. Lesser-know smaller bakes such as jumbles and fat rascals feature alongside indisputable classics such as rock cakes and fruit studded Chelsea buns. Larger cakes and pastries range from the quintessential Victoria sponge and Hummingbird cake, to those creations with an international flair: delight with a decadent Austrian sachertorte or a South African melktert. To finish, classic puddings include trifle and apple and blackberry crumble. Comforting and economical, these 60 vintage recipes are guaranteed to hit all the right notes of nostalgia and deliciousness.

A must have cook book. I have tried quite a few of the recipes thus far and they have all been excellent, so much so that I have repeated them. The Madeleine cakes I can not stop baking as they are particularly good. I have a lot of cook books but this is a top favourite. The recipes are clearly written with a very good accompanying photo showing the finished product... There are many recipes that will keep me occupied for a long time. There are the old favourites like Eccles Cakes (absolutely delicious) and ones that I have never heard of before, like 'Maids of Honour Tarts'.. This is surely a book I will be turning to time and time again.

A baker since a young age, Victoria Glass is an expert cake maker and owner of Victoria's Cake Boutique. The author of Boutique Wedding Cakes: bake and decorate beautiful cakes at home, she was featured in a recent retro-themed issue of the UK magazine Baking Heaven and recently released her second cookbook, "Deliciously Vintage."

"Deliciously Vintage" rounds up sixty favorite bakes from around the globe, including a wonderful selection of British standards (Jammy Dodgers, rock cakes, fat rascals, Chelsea buns, Bakewell tart, Battenberg cake, puddings) as well as international offerings (Australian Lamingtons, French madeleines, eclairs and clafoutis, South African melktert, Austrian Sachertorte, and many American contributions such as Mississippi mud pie, hummingbird cake, and Boston cream pie). Each recipe has a charming little story that gives background on a particular recipe; I found the British ones particularly amusing with schoolyard humor ("squashed fly cakes" for Eccles cakes, "dead man's arm" for the jelly roll).

Divided into biscuits and cookies, small cakes and bakes, large cakes, pastries, and desserts, you'll be sure to find the perfect baked good for any occasion, whether a dainty tea party (madeleines, Florentines, cream buns, lemon drizzle cake), elegant European coffee (Opera cake, Sachertorte, Kugelhopf), to a (children's) birthday party (cute butterfly cakes, PB&J cake, devil's food cake - hot chilis optional, although the chili horns make a particularly devilish touch indeed!). Best of all, ingredients should all be commonly available at your local grocery store.

I am a nanny and work for a family who like me to bake with there children every week.I like cookery books that are different and more challenging as I really enjoy baking, but I am not an expert by no means. I tried the milk tart south African dish as it appealed to me as I was born there. I really like the lay out beautifully illustrated and easy to read, the best thing for me is there are different recipes and with so many books now it seems to repeat the same recipes. so buy it if you like different and even if you don't buy it any way.
