Product description

Review

Signe Johansen celebrates the gloriously flavourful world of Scandinavian baking . . . The straightforward and honest recipes, full of warming spices and feel-good grains, are enhanced by mouthwatering photography - Ms Johansen's enthusiasm and passion for hearty, comforting Scandinavian fare shines through (Delicious, Book of the Month)

Signe's second book maintains the fjord-fresh Scandinavian tastes of Scandilicious, with traditional and modern ideas. Her use of grains such as spelt and barley adds texture and flavour to more healthy baking (BBC Good Food)

Bakers sick of being assulted by frosting frou-frou and cutesy cakes every time they open a book will delight in Sig's earthy recipes . . . she's clever and creative. (Metro)

Signe Johansen is highly qualified to spread some Scandinavian baking love... you'll be busy for hours delving into these unusual treats (Fork magazine)

Full of flavours and clever ideas (Alice Hart, Saga magazine)

The coolest cook to bang the drum for Scandinavian cooking. (Taste Journal, 2012)

Perfect for seasoned bakers... these are chic updates on the usual Christmas bakes. (Olive, December 2012)

In a year crowded with baking books, this collection stands out. Johansen, from Norway, has the two qualities you want in a baker: flawless taste and rigorous technique. Her oat cookies are the best i've ever made, and sticky cinamon bun-cake, with a suspicion of cardamom, is the stuff of Nordic dreams... Scandilicious indeed. (Bee Wilson, Sunday Times Books of the Year)

You could have sold anything in 2012 by sticking the word 'Scandinavian' on it but this confident second book by cook and anthropologist Johansen reminds you why. Some of the world's best baked goods, presented in her now trademark easy style'. (Food Books of the Year, Financial Times)

Book Description

Great cookery book, I treated myself for Xmas having read an excellent review on it. Have tried at least a dozen recipes all of which have tasted great, yesterday made her vanilla bread which is superb toasted.

I already own (and use) Signe's first book "Secrets of Scandinavian Cooking" and so was eager to read her second book. Once again there is the same straightforward approach to recipes as I found in her first book but this second book seems weightier, more assured in content. I say I'm not a natural baker, I feel more confident in the more forgiving savoury cooking and (whispers it) don't really like overblown, over-sweet cakes with copious icing and please don't get me started on super iced cupcakes! But as with all things Scandinavian, the recipes here are well-conceived and balanced. Sweetness is restrained so it never becomes cloying but just enough. On receiving this book I immediately baked Signe's 'Sticky Ginger Spice Cake', a moist cake that improves everyday (that it lasts which may not be long). I already was a fan of her 'Chocolate & Orange Marmalade Loaf Cake' (recipe was on an old blog post of hers) and should say that that cake has had rave comments each time I've made it and is easy to make. Toasted Oat, Date and Hazelnut Cookies are delicious and are perfect mid-afternoon treats. Yesterday I made the Plaited Milk Loaf and although mine may not have been as perfectly formed as the one photographed in the book it didn't look bad for a first attempt, tasted delicious and was simple to make (once I remembered how to plait!).

Once again the photography is gorgeous, the layout clear and easy to use and the instructions very clear and confident. I can honestly say that, for a non-baker (although that's changing), I have seen loads of recipes I'd love to try and will. This book is a keeper. Today I realised that I haven't even tried any recipe in the Savouries section! That's the next baking session. Absolutely recommend it!

An absolutely fantastic cookery book from a very talented cook and writer.

It's a real pleasure to try these recipes - nothing is too difficult. All the recipes I have tried have worked perfectly.

The flavours of Scandinavian baking are appealing to all people who have tried the creations I have made from this book.

Following an editorial on this book in The Times on 05/07/12, I purchased this book from Amazon the same day and made the Carrot Cake the afternoon after! It was delicious, really moist and wasn't cluttered up with dates or raisins. In fact it was extremely edible without the cream cheese frosting. (See the empty plate!)
It's one of those books which you look through and want to try every single recipe even though there isn't a photo of each item. It's well written and has lots of interesting ingredients and comments. It's out on the kitchen worktop ready for baking for three birthdays in the next two days. I'm looking forward to providing something a bit different in the sweet and savoury lines and I'm sure the recipients are too!

This book is truly wonderful! The recipes are mouth watering and they come with interesting information and tips. Possibly not the best for someone with little experience, but easy enough for those who have baked something before.

I recommend it fully! :)

I completely agree with other viewers who identify that the book looks enticing, with apparently fairly simple recipies. However, there seems to be some editorial issues. One reviewer has mentioned the Saltkinger recipe being off; there are also problems with the Pretzels; again, a lack of liquid in the recipe; it's mistifying how you can boil 5 pretzels in only 300ml of water, and then after baking for the absolute minimum time they were well overcooked (yes, I do check my oven temperature). Whilst the book looks simple, it doesn't for example, actually demonstrate how to fold pretzels which seems something of an oversight. Fine if you are an experienced baker who can figure out how to modify and produce the required results, but even then it left me feeling frustrated and with a sense of what was the point in having the book if I ended up figuring it out myself. Hopefully, some of the cake recipies will work better.

I started to make the Saltkringler and had mixed all the dry ingredients then added the oil and honey but found that there was no other liquid specified. There is no way 30ml of honey and 15ml of oil will make a dough out of 500g of flour.
Had to guess at 300ml of water (I assumed).
Poor editing on the first recipe I tried and given that this is a second edition I would have expected better.
