A cookery book that will actually be used!,
This review is from: Step-by-Step Baking (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I very rarely buy cookery books as I find them full of recipes I would either never make or need to buy half of the supermarket for.
This one is great. It has step by step recipes, beautiful photos, how long the product will keep for and useful 'bakers tips.' I've already found lots of recipes I can't wait to make and, most importantly for me, think I will be able to achieve. Black Forest Gateau is first on the list, closely followed by chocolate brownies. There are over 350 recipes which are divided into everyday cakes; celebration cakes; small cakes; patisserie; biscuits, cookies and slices; meringues and souffles; cheesecakes; sweet tarts and pies; savoury tarts and pies; classic and artisan breads; flat breads; quick breads and batters. There really is something for everyone.
It lost a star as I really don't like buttercream or butter in sauces. Buttercream is in quite a lot of the cake recipes but I will be able to adapt them. I was really hoping to find a fish pie recipe that doesn't use butter, but it wasn't to be! I also think some of the recipes are things that I just wouldn't make because they are easier to buy (for example jam doughnuts.)
All in all a great book which I'm sure will get a fair bit of use!

Have you looked at the Delia Fatless White Sauce which uses a "sauce flour" made by Carrs.
