Notes about this book

  • Sparkles75 on April 11, 2019

    Received this book yesterday and with an hour to spare today I tried 3 recipes and all 3 were quick to come together and tasted fantastic. While I love my big, beautiful baking books I seldom find the time these days to potter for a few hours while I bake. This book was a spur of the moment last minute addition to my shopping cart and I am so pleased! I'm surprised by the variety of recipes and the (so far) on point outcomes. This is a book that I can see myself working through. UPDATE:......26/04/2019- Have now had this book for 2 weeks and have made 12 recipes which in itself is amazing as I have so many baking books and so little time! From the 12 recipes all but one were very good to great, 6 have become absolute keepers and there has only been one recipe (the Anzacs) that I wouldn't recommend baking again. For now I have to step away from this book though because it's just too easy and yummy and my pants are feeling a bit too snug!

  • Cheri on December 21, 2013

    Tried Cinnamon Sugar Scones, Walnut Brownie cookies and Kitchen sink cookies today. All were excellent and would repeat. All very easy & yes, ONE bowl. Nice. Nothing revolutionary here, but nice quick variety of reliable recipes.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Strawberry cheesecake muffins

    • Sparkles75 on April 11, 2019

      We all loved these! Super light and fluffy, almost a cupcake in texture and with a delicious lemony tang complementing the sweetness of the strawberries. Definitely a keeper recipe although I will say the yield was off for me, got closer to 15 muffins than 12 but it may be the difference in Australian sized muffin pans to US.

  • Double chocolate muffins

    • aeader on February 28, 2015

      These were quick and easy to prepare, and tasted like chocolate cake - nice texture and not too heavy. I used mini chocolate chips which I would do again because they sort of melted into the muffins rather than having chocolate chunks in them. Definitely use the non-stick spray or paper liners in the muffin tin. I tried greasing the pan instead since I didn't have either on hand, and the muffins were a bit difficult to remove. Start checking them at 15 minutes.

    • Sparkles75 on April 24, 2019

      A great option to use up some Easter eggs, I just crumbled them up into the mixing bowl on the scales. A nice, light chocolate muffin which rose up beautifully. Probably totally unnecessary but I dusted mine lightly with icing sugar. I used paper cases and would definitely recommend doing that.

  • Easy orange-blueberry scones

    • Astrid5555 on February 14, 2015

      Very flaky and really delicious! Used frozen blueberries but did not mix them into the dough to avoid that off-putting grayish-blue color when you accidentally smash the berries. Instead, I patted the dough into a slab and spread the blueberries on top, then rolling the dough into a log with the blueberries enveloped inside.

  • Macadamia white chocolate chunk cookies

    • Sparkles75 on April 14, 2019

      These are lovely and reminded me of the Subway cookie. No photo of it in the book so not sure how it is meant to turn out but it turned out a thin chewy style of cookie for me.

  • Classic chocolate chip cookies

    • Sparkles75 on April 14, 2019

      A very good subway style choc chip cookie. Probably won't make these again as I prefer my cookies thicker and chewier, just personal taste.

  • Soft and chewy sugar cookies

    • Sparkles75 on April 12, 2019

      I have never eaten or baked sugar cookies before so had no preconceived ideas on how these should turn out. The taste and texture were fantastic but next time I will halve the size of the cookie balls and will only dip the top of them in sugar. As the recipe is written they make a large cookie and the full coating of sugar was just a little too much for me but with these minor changes they will be perfect.

  • Chew Anzac biscuits

    • Sparkles75 on April 14, 2019

      There is an error in the recipe, it mentions rolled oats but not included within the recipe. I added in with the flour and coconut. As I put these in the oven I was skeptical they would work out. Being Australian I have made a lot of Anzacs in my time and the texture seemed quite off to me. I was surprised to see they did bake up quite well however they don't really taste like an Anzac. The cookie itself is tasty enough however if you want to try an Anzac I would go with the normal method. Perhaps there is an error in the weights conversion (i bake via scale) but I won't be making these again.

  • Double chocolate espresso cashew cookies

    • Sparkles75 on April 12, 2019

      Another great cookie. Will make again

  • Crispy brown sugar shortbread

    • Sparkles75 on April 11, 2019

      Rave reviews all round. These are super quick and simple to put together and the taste is amazing. Keeper for sure

  • Classic lemon bars

    • swegener on May 11, 2015

      Another failed dessert. This split into a thick egg white layer and the lemon curd didn't set. I had to throw the whole batch away--which was very irritating!

    • Sparkles75 on April 14, 2019

      I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of this recipe however it was to die for and I won't bother making lemon bars any other way now. I thought something was off with the recipe as it baked because it had a slight whitish look to the top of it but once dusted with icing sugar it looked beautiful. Line tin with baking paper for easier removal

  • Peanut butter and jam bars

    • Sparkles75 on April 23, 2019

      I'm personally not a fan of pb and jam but even I quite liked these. Given success with other recipes in this book I'm keeping an open mind with recipes I normally wouldn't make and they didn't last long at our family Easter lunch.

  • Marble sheet cake

    • Joyceeong on June 28, 2017

      Lovely sheet cake. Moist with tender crumbs. I have reduced the sugar to 180gm (from the original 300gm) and it works out great, the sweetness was just right for us. Made this twice already. Great with coffee, tea and lovely with a glass of warm milk.

  • White chocolate cream cheese pound cake

    • Sparkles75 on April 11, 2019

      This is a deceptively plain recipe with a taste and texture that is actually very moreish. I've never eaten pound cake before so I have nothing to compare it to. I was in a hurry and realised half way through bake time I had the shelf in crooked so the cake cooked somewhat unevenly (totally my fault) so I'm keen to try this one again.

  • Satiny chocolate tart with sea salt

    • Gretchen718 on February 03, 2019

      Crust recipe is a bit skimpy, I found it better to increase everything by 25%.

  • Sour cherry almond clafouti

    • Sparkles75 on April 12, 2019

      I had run out of heavy cream and used sour cream in its place and the recipe turned out beautifully. Another delicious keeper from this book
