I saw some of the recipes from this book in the Sunday Times magazine - especially interested in the no cook chocolate biscuits with Macadamian nuts and dried figs. Ordered the book through Amazon as it was much cheaper than through the Times. Made the biscuits which were very naughty but very very nice! All recipes have clear instructions and are easy to make. Would thoroughly recommend.

Every review had 5 stars, so i just had to get it! I'm so glad i did!

Up to now I've made 5 things from here. The peanut butter and maple cookies, the cherry streusel cake (which combined my favourite flavours), the fruit cake (which was amazing), vanilla cupcakes with raspberry frosting and the choc chip cookies. Everything turned out perfect.
I even used substitutes. I'm a gluten free cook and i basically subbed all the flours. I used combinations of spelt flour and brown rice flour and whenever it calls for milk, i will use almond milk with a teaspoon or so of olive oil to help with the fat content. Instead of cherry jam i would use raspberry or any really! For fruit cake i even ommited the nuts and i used a selection of figs, dried apricots and dried cherries and topped the cake with warm apricot jam. It wass a huge hit with the family!!

My husband loved the peanut butter cookies and basically ate them all! I loved the fact that i could make them and store them in the fridge pre-rolled and then you just slice them up when needed and pop them in the oven for 12mins.

My next thing I want to make is the muesli bars and the date bars. Oh, and also the almond cake!!!

Nevermind "weekend baking", i've been absorbed baking all week!! If it wasn't for all the other stuff i have going on, i would be baking something out of this everyday. In fact, i nearly am, lol.

The layout is great, she uses the same selection of pans the whole way throughout, so you dont need to buy a bunch of things. Pictures are gorgeous and the recipes are so simple yet different and not too out there. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, THERE IS A PICTURE FOR EVERY RECIPE , YAY!!!!

Buy the book, you will be pleased you did!!

OK - I admit it. I am a FOOL for cookery books - and especially baking books. One look at the cover, one scan of the other reviews and I was sold!

And I was not disappointed.

The first one I made was blackcurrant, berry and hazelnut crumble cake - except that I used Blueberries instead of raspberries, pecans instead of hazelnuts and blueberry jam instead of blackcurrant ....... (Don't shout at me! I can't help experimenting). I also cook in an Aga which can be tricky where cakes are concerned.

Anyway - even with these subs and the Aga - the resulting cake was absolutely fabulous. It barely had time to cool down before it was ... gone! Toffee pear muffins are superb and I plan to make the chocolate fudge honeycomb cake very soon.

This is a simple, unpretentious baking book and I LOVE it.

Heartily recommend to anyone who enjoys zoning out at the weekend and communing with flour and eggs (sounds a little odd put like that ...)

You will enjoy reading this book, you will enjoy cooking from it and you will most certainly enjoy the results!

I have just loved baking from this book, on my 5th recipe already, simple and they all seem to work, it is a must and great Christmas present, especially if you want to get the children involved with cooking as well.

I received this book as a gift; but all the family have benefitted from it! The recipes are clear and simple to follow. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't like cooking something if I can't see how it's supposed to look at the end! Each recipe has a photo accompanying it. The photographs really bring the book to life. My children have followed a couple of the recipes too. Really recommend this book if you're tired of baking the same old thing and want some new, inspiring ideas.

This is from the woman who can cook beautifully on two rings (she also dreamed up the recipes for Camper Van Cookbook this summer), so you can be sure she'll have success when she has a whole oven to work with. If you're after easy, scrumptious bakes, a relaxed approach and assurance that your cakes will rise (if they're meant to!) and give you great results - go order a copy and bake a cake as soon as you can.

The mouth watering front cover immediately makes you want to investigate further. Having purchased numerous baking recipe books, this has to be one of my favourites and it would make an amazing gift.

My problem is how to find the time to actually produce all the recipes I've earmarked, followed by an impending huge problem around the waistline!

Buy and enjoy!
