5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the only baking book you need, 24 May 2012
This review is from: A Passion for Baking (Hardcover)
This book is wonderful - beautifully laid out, with lots of glorious big pictures and clear instructions.

Jo covers a comprehensive list of baking for every occasion - Breakfast, Brunch, Family Baking, Afternoon Tea, Celebration Baking (Christmas cake, Easter simnel cake and even a wedding cake), Baking with Children, Breads, Biscuits and Cookies, Pastry and Desserts. All the basics you could possibly want are in there, and I especially love that she dedicated a whole chapter to child-friendly baking, with savoury and sweet recipes, as it truly makes it a book for all the family.

There are also a lot of recipes with the trademark Jo twists that won her the Great British Bake-Off crown last summer. The recipes that look extra-special and exciting are:

Coconut and cranberry Danish
Blackcurrent and cream cheese pancakes
Cinnamon and sugar popovers (amazing little doughnut-type things)
White chocolate tiffin
Blackberry and apple loaf cake
Chocolate, cardamom and strawberry swiss roll
Mini pistachio meringues (with whipped cream and topped with a fresh raspberry - so pretty)
Chocolate cheesecake mini cupcakes
Spiced orange rolls
Chocolate mud cake
Cinnamon swirl loaf
Halloumi and chilli flatbreads (I love halloumi - I didn't know you could bake with it!)
Honey and mustard sausage rolls

These are just my personal favourites - there's so many more in there! The most excitng cookery book I've bought in ages.
