Bread is a lot easier to make than many people think. Women's Institute Bread starts by taking the reader through all the stages of bread making, with tips and advice on topics such as flour types, yeasts, temperature and storing. Advice is also provided on using the recipes in a bread machine. Recipes cover basic breads through to festive celebration recipes and yeast-free breads. Start by making a simple Farmhouse Loaf or an Oat and Honey Loaf, then expand your repetoire with favourites such as Pitta Bread, English Muffins or Foccacia. Add a twist to plain breads with savoury touches to create something a bit more unusual, such as Brie and Redcurrant Bites or Peppercorn Bread. For sweet or spicy recipes, try traditional Danish Pastries or Pain au Chocolat, or maybe something a little different such as Sugary Spice Dough Ball Ring. There are plenty of recipes here for anyone with a sweet tooth. Celebration breads will teach you how to make your own Pannetone at Christmas to impress friends and family, or try other traditional recipes throughout the year. Lastly, try something completely diffferent with yeast-, gluten- or wheat-free breads.Not just for those with a food intolerance, these are sure to become favourites with everyone who tastes them.

It has a happy mix of traditional, international and everyday recipes. It's a book to get you baking, so there is no massive chapters about esoteric kneading method nor pictures of the best artisan bakers of Vladivostok posing by their ovens.
I have now had the book for 6 months. I am working my way through the recipes, I have to say that as a beginner baker I have not been disapointed - all the recipes turn out with great results (my first effort with hotr cross buns was a bit disastrous - but that was down to my impatience).
I think that this is an execellent book for both the beginner and accomplished baker - good easy to follow recipes that don't disappoint.
It arrived days before it was due and I started baking that day. WOW... simple instructions and easy to follow step by step. The result a resounding success. Whilst it is only a very minor gripe but it covers the basic bread recipies but only a few of the more speciality breads. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a no nonsense reference book with delicious results!
