I have more baking books than a person could ever need, truly; but I was still delighted to receive this one from my husband on my recent birthday. Its title says it all: British Baking. You will find all of the British standards here, including some home-made versions of commercial favourites like "jammy dodgers" and "fig rolls."

My favourite baking book. Have tried at least ten recipes and never had a failure. The Black Forest gateau is very good as is the raspberry cheesecake and the lemon drizzle cake and both swiss roll cakes. The treacle gingerbread cake is lovely and the coffee and walnut cake is just lovely. I'm not a great cook and I don't always obey recipes to the letter but this book has never yet failed me.

Finally a baking book that literally takes the biscuit! I am a hoarder of baking books, but this one I truly love. Have read from cover to cover and made lots of these irresistible recipes. A must have.

Or for what P&B call a fairy cake. Reading through this book I was repeatedly irritated to find Mr Peyton baking fairy cakes in muffin tins; when any cook with a degree of experienced knowledge of the subject would know that the (British) fairy cake is distinctly ...more

My daughter bought me this book as a Christmas present and it was a lovely surprise. As well as being a beautiful looking book it has also some great recipes with colourful photo's. The lemon drizzle cake is fab. I would recommend buying it.

In my opinion British Baking is the best baking in the world. This is a fantastic baking book, I have tried several recipes from it and they have all been fantastic.
