Those of you who avidly watch the Great British Bake Off and follow the contestant's baking journeys post-GBBO will probably know already that 2011 winner, Jo Wheatley, has a new cookery book out! 'Home Baking' is the second book from my favourite GBBO winner and I have to say that, in the short period that I've had a copy of the new book, the new book is already knocking others off the shelf for first-place in my list of 'best baking books'.

Wheatley's style of baking is very much family-centric and it shows throughout the book (i.e. lots of fun, baking photos with family) - something I really like about both this and her previous book. One of the first things I noticed about 'Home Baking' is that the layout is very consistent with Wheatley's previous book (even down to the cover photo which is almost exactly the same pose albeit with a new outfit and new cake. Consistency is something I find very admiring in books from the same author; it's good to be able to identify a number of books with an author just by their appearance. I cannot tell you how many times I've bought books from a single author only find they're deeper or taller (meaning they don't sit flush on my bookcase). Hurrah then, for Wheatley and her band of baking helpers for creating a book that looks good on the outside as well as the inside.

Something else that I noticed almost immediately was that there was a ribbon page/book marker - something I picked up on in my review of Wheatley's previous book. I hate it when cookery books don't have a page marker as I'm someone who will look at a recipe in the morning whilst planning the evening meal, after which I book mark it for later. No ribbon = bits of paper sticking out of books to mark pages - not good!

It's only been a year since Jo Wheatley's first book hit the stands and already we have a lovely second installment of Home Baking!!

I would particularly recommend Home Baking to anyone who may feel a bit unsure about baking in general. Jo's approach is so reassuring and comforting as she assures us that anyone can bake! Saying that there is plenty here for the experienced baker as well.

The book is broken down into ten chapters starting with Biscuits, Bars, and Cookies; Bread and Scones; Cakes; Baking with Children; Crumbles, Tarts, and Pithiviers; Quiches, Pasties, Pies and Savoury Puddings; Quick and Simple Special Occasions; Supper Bakes; and Teatime Treats!

Here is a list of the recipes I can't wait to try:

Oaty Fruit Squares
Blueberry Brioche Rolls
Cheesy Tear and Share
Potato Bread
Parmesan and Pesto Fantail Loaf
Banana, Pecan, and Butterscotch Cake
Lime and Coconut Tray Bake
Lemon, White Chocolate, and Macadamia Bombs
Cheesy Mini Ketchup Scones
Apricot Frangipane
Chicken and Mango Empanadas
Basic Scones
Rocky Road
Apple Turnovers
Fruit and Nut Brownies
Tempura Mustard Sausages
Valentine's Salted Caramel Chocolate Pots
Mince Bakewell Tart
Banoffee Eclairs

After reading Jo's books, blog, and following her on other social media sites I can't help but love her down-to-earth personality and family style baking. Following her progress from her win on the GBBO it's hard not to feel like I know her personally as she lets us into her life and kitchen.

Anyone who loves the series with Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, will, no doubt remember Jo, as she battled the various tasks. And a lot of us, fell in love with her gentle charming manner, as she had a success or not so successful bake...we all felt like it was us sharing her joys and sad when she got upset. I bought this out of curiosity, and because Jo felt like a friend/neighbour....and I have pleasantly surprised at the delights within this book. I have tried a few of her recipes and they have worked , I kid you not. I love the pictures and the way the narrative to each recipe, its as if Jo was with you in the kitchen talking to you as you bake and sharing a cup of tea all at the same time....after all, thats what we women do best with our friends, and Jo makes you feel part of her life through her recipes,
Definately would say to buy this book, or her other one...soo pleased i did.

I loved Jo's first book Passion for Baking and this new one doesn't disappoint at all. When I sat down and read it from cover to cover, I knew it was going to be another winner. I couldn't wait to get into the kitchen and bake! I find Jo's recipes and tips very inspiring. You won't find recipes demanding obscure, impossible to find in supermarkets ingredients here which I love. The recipes look stunning but most importantly achievable. The book is divided into the following chapters:

Biscuits, bars and cookies

Bread and scones


Baking with children

Crumbles, tarts and pithiviers

Quiches, pasties, pies and savoury puddings

Quick and simple

Special occasions

Supper Bakes

Teatime treats

My copy is butter splattered and flour dusted already but I think (I hope!) Jo would be quite happy to hear that. Here is what I've made so far...

Raspberry red velvet cake - This is the gorgeous looking cake on the cover - and it tastes as amazing as it looks! Now just to add, you won't get the normal brick red velvet colour here - it's more of an darker, earthier colour due to reducing the amount of red food colouring and using pureed raspberries in the cake batter. A very clever trick! Not that the colour will be on your mind anyway when you take a bite of the finished product! I actually made this when Jo posted the recipe on her website last year and I'm so pleased it made its way into the book because it is a really stunning recipe. One of the best cake recipes I've made over the past few years.

Honeycomb bars - addictive! Whenever I make a batch of these they never last very long.
