Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Mulled wine

    • Lillibet on December 23, 2012

      Sounds too simple and plain but was really nice and spot on

  • Hannah's banana bread

    • marmite on July 12, 2013

      I found it took at least an hour to cook.

    • Alro9 on November 17, 2013


    • Grumbletum on July 21, 2018

      This is the best banana bread recipe to date. Sprinkle a layer of sugar on top before baking to form crust. Bake for 60 mins.

  • Elisabeth's lemon bars

  • Dittisham plum crumble

    • DeborahBluhm on July 16, 2014

      The best one I've made! And easy to play around with different flours, fruits, and sugars even. It's a show stopper!

  • A good chocolate cake

    • DeborahBluhm on July 16, 2014

      So fabulous! The most moist chocolate cake I've ever made and one of if not the best, I'm also not vegan. Ive made enough chocolate cakes to know! I also used the coconut oil from Ocado made by Biona that is manufactured specifically for baking and cooking… meaning it has no coconut flavour, so I will always use this method from now on for the ganache as its a lot healthier than glugs of cream. I couldn't tell the difference at all! Will prob use this as my chocolate cake recipe from now on.

  • Maggie's best chocolate chip cookies

  • Spelt bread & variations

    • Peerke on February 02, 2022

      Very nice, but goes stale quickly, so best to freeze what you don’t eat immediately.

Publishers Text

Following the Leon principle that what tastes good can also do you good, three-quarters of the recipes are sugar, dairy, wheat or gluten free - so there's plenty to indulge in even if you have a food allergy, an intolerance or one eye on your waistline. Co-authored by Henry Dimbleby and Claire Ptak, it is a book of two halves. The first contains recipes for Every Day: granolas, cakes, breads, pizzas, and puddings to enjoy as often as you like. The second half - Celebration - contains recipes for all sorts of special occasions, from Easter and Christmas to weddings and even funerals. Flourless chocolate fudge cake, toffee apples, caramelized onion and olive tart, plum ice-cream - there is something in here to tickle every fancy.
