NICE CAKES THAT ARE EASY TO MAKE
on 10 August 2015
I hope Amazon won't mind my reviewing this book when I didn't buy it from them but I just wanted people to know what a lovely book it is so that they could buy it for themselves.
There are some scrummy easy to make recipes in this book that will delight you and whoever you make them for. I make a lot of cakes for friends' birthdays etc so am always on the look-out for new and unique recipes and there are many in this book that I haven't yet tried.
I can highly recommend the following:
Orange, Semolina & Pistachio Slide (Page 64) - anyone who loves pistachios half as much as I do will love this!
Raspberry & Coconut Slice (Page 9) - ooooohhhhh
Cider Crumble Slice - easy to make traybake that will vanish in a flash
Cinnamon Cherry Slice (Page 116) - good for school events
Prune & Cinnamon Squares (Page 42) - gooey beyond belief!
Nutmeg Slice (Page 49) - dark, rich and spicy
This book is beautifully illustrated (nearly every recipe has a photo, but not all do) but just to flag up that the font isn't black - it's more of a medium grey colour so beware if you are buying for older people or those who have eyesight difficulties: they may strain a little to read the text.
Apart from that, it's a great little book and one that would make a lovely gift for a friend or co-worker who's not that accomplished as a baker. They soon will be.
