Editorial Issues have ruined the book!
on 2 January 2013
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.
