This review is from: The Delia Collection: Baking (Hardcover)
When I bought this book a few months ago I was a total novice cake chef; using Delia's fool proof recipes I have learnt how to make a variety of cakes and tray bakes. The recipes are laid out in a completely consistent fashion so you always know what temperature to preheat the oven to and what size tin you need to prepare at a quick glance; and Delia is very good at giving excellent hints and tips on the way through - how to measure out treacle without needing a full body wash for instance! There is at least one picture of every cake, so you know what you're aiming for; I've cooked most of them and have yet to find a single recipe in this book which isn't well received. Whether you're a beginner looking for guidance or a seasoned pro looking for some exciting ideas to broaden your repertoire, I would recommend this beautiful bargain book to you!
