Publishers TextFrom Chelsea buns and chocolate drops to treacle tart and coffee cake, this stunning and comprehensive collection of mouth-watering recipes is guaranteed to inspire every cook.
Covering all the traditional teatime favourites such as ginger biscuits, fruit cake and blueberry muffins to more special-occasion treats such as light-as-air meringues, black forest gateau and chocolate chiffon pie, this compilation of 500 recipes is a must for every home baker.
A clear and concise introduction outlines the principles behind successful baking, including the importance of accuracy, preheating the oven, advance preparation, careful timing and how to line tins, to guide both novice and experienced cook to the best possible results.
Choosing is made easy with the cakes and bakes grouped into chapters by type or occasion. Children and adults alike will love the range of divine delicacies, from simple lunchbox snacks such as oaty coconut biscuits, fruity tea bread or carrot buns to party or weekend treats such as festive apple pie, caramel meringues or chocolate cheesecake.
Also included are invaluable cook's tips and suggested variations to encourage experimentation and to enable the reader to adapt recipes to suit their tastes and to improve their baking techniques. Ideas for decorating cakes and cookies, as well as storage advice and serving suggestions are also provided.
For those on a diet there is a section on low fat baking, covering delicious adaptations for healthy bars, buns, pastries, cakes and teabreads.
Every delicious recipe is accompanied by a beautiful colour photograph to both inspire and guide, and the simple step-by-step instructions ensure perfect results every time.
