Every recipe is interesting, appetising and more often than not simple to make. Lots of machine led recipes here which suits me!
The Kiddy Traybake (chocolate cake) is *amazing*. Made with cocoa powder, oil and water (rather than solid chocolate and butter), it lasts for days without ever tasting less than freshly made. It also looks and tastes better than the picutre would suggest - a complement indeed to the total success of this book.
The "french and flourless" cake is by far my favorite recipe from this book.
Super ace brill man!
First of all it contains a Sachertorte recipe that didn't contradict itself and utterly befuddle (though that does come from another book). Second, even though my mother spent most of her professional life teaching cakey things, I don't have any particular skill in that area yet I have had only successes so far with this book.
Incidentally the pictures are mouth-watering.
The only caution I would give is that so far the cakes we have made have been quite expensive to make... although admittedly we have used fresh fruit out of season. If you are cooking on a budget then don't go near this book, but if that is not an issue, and you enjoy baking, enjoy trying new things then go for it... you shouldn't be disappointed.
