About the Author

Lorraine trained at the leading Leiths School of Food and Wine before completing spells in some of the most renowned kitchens in the world, but, eager to work for herself and exercise her baking talents Lorraine couldn’t wait to start her own business, The Cupcake Bakehouse in London’s Covent Garden. Wide public attention beckoned after Baking Made Easy, her landmark BBC 2 TV series, introduced millions of viewers to her easy, impressive recipes. The book of the series went on to be a bestseller and was followed up by an even more popular book and series: Home Cooking Made Easy, making Lorraine the most successful debut cookery writer in Britain.

In every recipe, there is a comparation between ordinary and Lorraine's lighter version of recipe, but some differences are just 5-10 calories.Howewer, recipes in this book are all easy and tasty.

I bought this book mainly for the cake section. I love cake but am conscious that most recipes contain, in particular, a lot of refined flour & sugar. I have been experimenting with reducing the sugar in recipes, substituting wholemeal flours, using healthier fats, ground nuts, including vegetables and some fruit purée and using a small amount of ground flax seed. All these tactics create tasty, healthier cakes with good textures and, incidentally, lower calorific values. My feeling is that if you are going to eat cake then make it as healthy and nutritious as you can. I don't think the recipes in this book come up to the mark on that score.

I usually rate Lorraine Pascale's recipes highly and own other books by her. So I was really looking forward to getting this book to add new ideas to my repertoire. There are a few interesting recipes but I find most of them uninspiring and not really worth the bother. In my view they don't go far enough to break away from conventional recipes. The small reductions in sugar and refined flours plus the frequent use of egg white (ignoring the nutritive value of the yolk and importance of it in creating a tender texture) result in very minor reductions in calorific values at the expense of making the cakes healthier and more satisfying to eat without wanting to overeat. Including the ingredients I have mentioned above also helps to modify the effect of insulin spikes by lowering the glycemic index of the finished product so you are less inclined to want to stuff yourself silly and keep going back for another slice!

I have to agree with other reviewers about the publication style. The paper is too glossy and makes reading difficult as does the red print which, in any case, is far too small.

First impressions, a nice colourful and well presented book. Nice shiney pages and lots of colouful photos.
It is divided into, Breakfast and brunch, Bread, Savoury bakes, Puddings and desserts, Cakes, Cookies and traybakes, Teatimes treats, Special occasions and entertaining, Pastry and basics.
Some of the recipes are:raspberry and banana no bake bread, banana loaf, banana and honey muffins, mixed berry and cinnamon muffins, bagels, all grain bread, lasagne, baked salmon fingers, cauliflow cheese, lentil and bean cottage pie, victoria meringue with mango and lime cream filling, lemon yogurt pound cake, coconut and lime loaf, chocolate cookies,peanut butter cookies, shortbread, skinny caffe latte butterfly cakes, eclairs, meringue kisses,raspberry vanilla and white chocolate cake with almond flowers, lemon and keylime cheesecake,lemon ice cream, crispy filo mince pies, light Xmas cake, Xmas chocky Yule log and loads more.
Each recipe has all the calorific, fat,sugar, protein, salt information of baking the normal equivalent recipe plus the same information for Lorraines recipe so that you can compare.
A good book for weight/health conscious bakers. I love baking and cake but put weight on if I just look at a cake or pudding so this book is perfect for me and Lorraine uses mainly store cupboard ingredient's.

What a beautiful cook book........only received it a few days ago and I have done 3 recipes. My hubby loved the No knead Banana and raspberry breakfast loaf, and the banana loaf. I did add another banana and cut the sugar and fat down more and it was Delicious. Still rich in taste and moist....They did not last a day in my house.
The bread recipes are so tasty.
The book is beautifully presented and easy to follow. I will be purchasing some more of her books and look forward to bake and cook some more of her recipes.

My daughter is 8 years old and an avid fan of Lorraine. Each Saturday, she picks a meal for us to cook together and we go shopping and make it and curl up on the sofa to watch Strictly Come Dancing - bliss! Lorraine's recipes are delicious and easy to make and it's a huge bonus that this latest book has some healthier versions. Her skinny mac cheese is a winner. From her earlier book we also regularly make her easy Sri Lankan curry.
I particularly like her step-by-step instructions - it's really clear and easy to follow. I also love the little life sayings she includes in her book - not to mention, the book is beautifully photographed and laid out. It makes a great Christmas present.
