Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Roasted carrot & harissa galette

    • Astrid5555 on May 05, 2022

      Had some purple heirloom carrots on hand so this galette was the perfect occasion for using them up. Looks stunning and tastes delicous, got rave reviews.

  • Rhubarb, ginger & white chocolate cake

    • Astrid5555 on June 28, 2022

      Made this back in May with my first rhubarb from the garden. The white chocolate was a nice addition.

    • Lepa on May 05, 2022

      This is good. If I made it again I would add more rhubarb as the bites without rhubarb feel a bit dry.

  • Malted brown butter pound cake

    • Foodycat on March 26, 2022

      Gorgeous flavour! I really like her very careful instructions - when she says to use a medium saucepan for the butter, PAY ATTENTION - it froths up a lot more than I expected, and when she says to beat for 6-8 minutes so it's really light and fluffy it makes a big difference. I used Ovaltine instead of Horlicks because I am trying to avoid palm oil, so mine was a bit darker. For some reason it collapsed in the middle as it cooled even though it was properly cooked but it didn't affect the eating quality.

  • Pumpkin spice coffee scones

    • Lepa on April 24, 2022

      These were good but not my favorite scones. While my husband and I loved the coffee glaze, the kids didn't like it (and they aren't picky, especially about sweet foods). We also liked it better with a smear of creme fraiche (we didn't have clotted cream) to offset the sweetness.

Benjamina's new book is full of 70 sweet and savory baking recipes for any day of the week, led by flavor.

Going through the ritual of bringing out the measuring scales, pouring out flour, whipping up the eggs, stirring the batter and impatiently slicing up warm cake is a beautiful thing that deserves to be enjoyed all year round no matter the day, season or occasion.

This is a cookbook that embraces simplicity, mindfulness and the therapeutic comforts of baking. The Great British Bake Off's 2016 contestant Benjamina writes so warmly about cakes and her recipes speak to a natural, seasonal and down-to-earth way of baking. Chapters include Herbs & Tea, Stone Fruit & Berries, Vegetables, Best of Beige, Spice Cupboard, and Chocolate.

Because every day is a good day to bake.
