It has fabulous easy to follow recipes, and with ingredients usually found in the cupboard. Only today my 12 year old made 4 recipes and was thoroughly satisfied with herself-she is my 3rd child to now use it!
Our book is falling to pieces and covered in cake mix, but we've all had great fun using it. You would never believe there were so many different cake recipes, and so easy and tasty too!
You do need to double or one and a half times the quantity of some of them though! I actually came to Amazon looking for a replacement and ended up writing a review as well.
A large range of recipes for tray bakes, small cakes, large cakes, no bake cakes, scones, children, and biscuits. Each recipe has a little introductory sentence which recommends each cake for a particular occasion. Helpful tips on how to store the cakes and a fantastic introduction make this book really easy to use.
All the cakes I've made from this book have worked really well and been very tasty!
The only draw back is lack of pictures but in the hardback version there are a few. In fact I find pictures often put you off making the cake as it looks too difficult!
Don't worry if you've never made a cake before,she talks you through it,and you never need another cake book.I've had this book for years and I have'nt nearly used up all the recipes yet-I just keep making the same ones over and over again but a bit different,and no one has noticed!
Faced with an unusually large hungry horde decending on us for Christmas, I was desperate to get my freezer full of goodies beforehand. This was a life saver for me and I would recommend it to anyone who cooks for charity, coffee mornings or just family visiting with the grandchildren, who is looking for good results, simply and quickly (and in my case, large quantities!!)
Lots of delicious recipes, such as the mincemeat brownies, and the can't-go-wrong chocolate cake, didn't. With toppings we hadn't come across before.
Only one small niggle - some of the recipe amounts did not seem to fill the tray size specified - or did someone nibble the raw cake mix.
Would love to see this as a spiral bound with washable surfaces.
You'll use it again and again.
A good cookery book will allow you to open it at a recipe and leave it open while you proceed through whatever stages are involved. You will probably want to return to it several times from checking the oven setting to the eventual timing. If the book closes when left, it makes following a recipe rather more difficult. It also uses a rather poor quality of paper and splashes of cake batter (not always avoidable) may not be easy to remove and leave permanent stains. I have no problems with its recipes, but the presentation makes it more of a source book than one that you could use frequently. You may need to write out or copy its pages to make better use. That rather defeats its purpose.
Mary Berry has benefited from a long career on TV and in magazines, and subsequently books. She can be seen on TV rather rarely now and her reputation remains high. This is a low-priced edition which does not well serve its potential users due to its presentation. Differently presented, it could justify a 5-star rating.

Cannot fault Mary Berry.Book contents will be a great guide but wish I had purchased a new book rather than a used one which was rather worse for wear. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ann Comiskey
