Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Hazelnut shortbread

    • usingSpoons on May 26, 2015

      The recipe doesn't specify the tin size, but it worked well in a 31cm x 17cm brownie tin (12" x 7")

  • Basic muffin recipe

    • dprostrollo on May 22, 2018

      Really useful basic muffin recipe - I kept the ratio as it was written and played around with replacing some of the milk with greek yogurt, different flavors, different icings... all really lovely. This is a great go-to if you want to develop your own signature flavors :)
