Notes about this book

  • Sparkles75 on March 31, 2019

    On the whole I love this book and would buy it again in a heartbeat. Some of my very favourite baking recipes have come from here however I have also had a few flops so I would be testing a recipe before baking for any occasions

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Sticky ginger syrup cake

    • aargle on September 07, 2015

      This is a great cake - so easy and delicious without any unusual ingredients and no icing to worry about. A definite repeat. Also easy on the pocket.

    • Melanie on August 03, 2015

      This cake is perfect, absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I used all of the syrup (added after baking). Note that you also need mixed spice and fresh ginger.

  • Basic friands

    • aargle on June 26, 2016

      This is the first time I've made Friands and they turned out perfectly. I used muffin tins and frozen egg whites I had stashed in the freezer. Cooking time was as per recipe. Didn't realise how easy they were.

  • Pear and yoghurt muffins

    • Melanie on June 25, 2017

      Fairly sweet (more like a cupcake?) but very tasty. Freezes well too.

  • Ginger, fig and walnut muffins

    • aargle on August 03, 2015

      These are great muffins and I get about 16 muffins out of the mixture. Takes 20 minutes in my oven. I have made them several times and are great for lunchboxes. Highly recommend.

  • Zucchini and pine nut muffins

    • Sparkles75 on March 31, 2019

      These are a lovely savoury muffin and very popular at my house...they don't last long when freshly made and are a particularly yummy option to serve with soup.

  • Chewy pecan squares

    • Sparkles75 on March 31, 2019

      These are fantastic and utterly addictive. Have made these many times and always a hit, especially with coffee lovers when topped with the recommended icing.

  • Mitzie Wilson's nutty tray bake

    • Sparkles75 on March 31, 2019

      These were okay, nice enough but probably wouldn't make these again

  • Raspberry and lemon curd slice

    • Melanie on January 26, 2016

      Made this to use up some of a large batch of lemon curd. Made the base in the food processor, adding the lemon curd and frozen raspberries and baked (for a little longer than recipe suggested timewise). Very simple. Keeps well in fridge and tastes great.

  • Chocolate slice with macaroon topping

    • Sparkles75 on March 31, 2019

      These were absolutely demolished the day they were made and received rave reviews from the men in the house.

  • Chocolate chip cookies

    • Melanie on June 01, 2016

      Although there was nothing wrong with this recipe, the cookies came out flatter than I like. Not my favourite.

  • Anzac biscuits

    • Melanie on June 01, 2016

      These were delicious - great flavour and texture.

  • Muesli cookies

    • Sparkles75 on March 31, 2019

      Unfortunately these didn't work for me at all, very flat and flavour was a bit disappointing.

  • Greek honey biscuits

    • Sparkles75 on March 31, 2019

      These were a very disappointing result for the effort involved. They missed the mark by a long way for me
