  • Wild one (raspberry mud cake)

      This is an awesome recipe and I make it alot for a celebration birthday cake. I use frozen raspberries though they are better if they are sieved to get the seed texture out of the cake.

      This is my 'go-to' recipe when making a mud cake - it is delicious. Have also made with other berries, including red currants but the raspberry is the best.

The Best Baking Secrets and Recipes from Australian and New Zealand Professionals.

There is nothing more satisfying than the aroma of freshly baked bread, or the knowledge that there is a rich, moist cake waiting to be cut. But great baking takes care, knowledge of techniques, and a great deal of passion. Many commercial bakers are going back to their baking roots and returning to smaller, more personal bakery with a highly individual touch.

This book is a colourful celebration of local baking as its very best with comprehensive reference sections for breads, cakes and pastries including basic principles, ingredients, techniques and measurements. Easy-to-follow step-by-step directions provide a complete understanding of how baking works and why. The bakery section presents tantalising recipes from our best bakeries including, Babka Bakery Cafe and Il Fornaio in Melbourne, Jocelyn's Provisions in Brisbane, La Bretagne and La Tartine in Sydney, and New Norcia in Perth.
