5.0 out of 5 stars US meets UK, 11 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook, The (Hardcover)
First off, I can't bake
Second, I'm in the UK and have/had no idea what a stick of butter looked like (nearly half of one of our packets!)
A wander dowN to the south bank food festival and some guys there were doing American cupcakes, cookies etc
I didn't buy their book, I bought this.
Then I bought some cup measures, then I bought some spoon measures, then I bought a muffin tin, then I opened the book, £30 or so later.
First up doughnut muffins. Instructions to stir for x amount of minutes until it looks like y. Wally proof. Even brave enough to take them to work. Usually my cakes could make decent doorstops and not even my kids will eat them.
This time I'm hiding the cakes.
Confidence restored it's on to biscones, now I'm not sure the dried fruit in the picture looks like the "use any dried fruit" I used- prunes- but despite that they're still edible, and more than once for a token keep me happy moment.
Today it's pecan sandras. This means I will not venture anywhere near weighing scales for a few weeks/ months. They are excellent, I'm so chuffed with myself I wish my mum lived round the corner so that she could praise me too.
In the absence of mother I shall just brag about how good I am at baking.
Oh, and the book's quite good too;)
