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.

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.

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.
One of the best collections of British recipes I have come across in recent years. if you are a baker you should have a copy of this on your cookbook shelf :)
