The Hungry Student Easy Baking book
on 11 September 2013
If there was ever a book to get you into baking then this would be it. I have loved making all of the quick breads such as tortillas, flatbreads, pizzas, naans, soda bread and cheesy caterpillar bread.
Charlotte's instructions, if you are worried about going wrong, are concise, very detailed and exacting which will provide you with all the information you need to make a successful bake.
As a student, this book would have saved me a fortune. I was always spending a fortune in the bakery for lunch, not to mention the temptation of afternoon treats but if I had taken this baking book off with me as a new student, I could have had so much fun baking and sharing out wonderful sweets with my house mates. We all loved food but relied upon the local shops far too much.
Charlotte's muffin recipes are something I would recommend if you are a baking beginner. Once tried, you will never go back to shop bought again. And the money saved from home baking will be very much appreciated.
The introduction pages of this book are also incredibly valuable and will advise and educate you in many ways, you will feel ready to get in the kitchen.
I would recommend this book to anyone, not just students, who is keen to learn more about baking.
