The chapters include: Sponge cakes, Muffin and Cup Cakes, Chocolate Cakes, Fruity Cakes and Cakes for Puddings. A few of the cakes are gluten-free and these are clearly marked.
There are the perennial British favourites such as Victoria Sponge, Madeira Cake, Gingerbread, Parkin, Sultana Cake and Cherry Almond Cake. Then there are favourites with-a-twist- such as Cup Cake Madeleines, Orchard Teabread and Coffee Battenberg. There are lots of innovative new flavours too such as Sticky Toffee Cake a riff on the ever popular pudding and the first recipe I tried -with utterly delectable results. Latin American Milk Ring was another winner( a slightly less rich version of the Tres Leches Cake), Dark Chocolate Stem Ginger Cake,Spiced Parsnip and Raisin Cake and Pear, Marzipan and Chocolate Chunk Cake to name just a few. And among the Small Cakes and Muffins chapter I enjoyed the Lemon Poppy Seed Cakes and Fudge Cupcakes.
There are lovely full-page illustrations of some of the cakes and an introductory section on methods of cake making and trouble-shooting tips.
I highly recommend this book to all bakers and would-be bakers; there are plenty of new ideas for the experienced and the clear and easy recipes will propel even a reluctant novice to start baking.
