This is a particularly nice edition (jealous!) which maintains a good level of photography so you can whet your appetite, and I'm looking forward to tasting the results, that I haven't made for a change!
Watching her on Tv, she always has these 'unhealthy' shortcuts when it comes to baking and cooking and happy to say that there are non of these shortcuts in this book.
I've made a couple of recipes so far and I've been very pleased with the outcome.
Recipes are clearly written and easy to follow.
The only recipe I have ever had a problem with is the chocolate brownies, but I think that's down to my brownie pan. Everything else I have ever tried has been 100% perfect. The Autumnal Birthday cake is a particular highlight in our family, as is the dense chocolate loaf cake. My particular favourite is the dark chocolate mousse cake, which sounds complicated but really isn't and is well worth a go.
We have also tried many of the savoury recipes. The pizza dough gets regular outings and the savoury onion pie and chickpea and filo pastry pie are brilliant at parties if you're bored of quiche.
Sensible, practical, no nonsense advice from the queen of all baked goods. If you could give this book more than five out of five I wouldn't hesitate.
This is going to go alongside our well-thumbed Elizabeth Davids as an essential reference.
Some notable successes are the banana bread which is scrummy (too good for the children!!), blueberry muffins, pancakes, jam doughnut muffins (seriously naughty), the most wonderful passionfruit curd, a delicious spiced apple chutney and the piece de resistance without a shadow of a doubt are the scones which are the best I have made or tasted.
Buy this book and you won't be disappointed but you may need to exercise a lot of willpower keeping it to treats only or buy some bigger clothes!!
