Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Monic's French chocolate sliver cake

    • SusanN on July 19, 2014

      I had trouble getting the sugar to dissolve, and the cake cracked on top as well (and then sunk once out of the oven). The texture didn't look as nice as the picture. However it tasted great! All the other recipes from the cookbook have come out 100% perfect, so I think I'll just have to try this one again.

  • Chocolate yoghurt cake

    • JoD on November 20, 2019

      An easy one-bowl cake to make. I didn't have a 24 square tin so converted to a slightly bigger rectangular baking tin which then only took 35 minutes to cook.

Publishers Text

Good home-baked products are the most delicious, but finding trusted recipes or stimulating ideas is not always easy. Julie Le Clerc knows many home-cooks and professional bakers who are constantly searching for reliable, inexpensive yet innovative recipes. That's why she's keen to share her favourites with you: easy-to-follow recipes that result in a variety of cakes, all with seriously good flavours. The cakes in this book are Julie's tried and true favourites - the ones she comes back to time and time again. Many she's been making since childhood, like her mum's sponge recipe. Others she's made hundreds and possibly thousands of times over the years in her cafe kitchen, to the great satisfaction of her customers. Now she's happy to share these recipes with you and provide pleasure to all who enjoy a little sweetness in life. Alongside all the recipes for luscious syrup-drenched cakes, creamy cheesecakes, divine chocolate cakes, spicy cakes, slab cakes, rolled cakes and even gluten-free delights, Julie happily shares with you her own hard-won baking advice. These invaluable hints are the set of nifty tricks she has picked up from a lifetime spent creating cakes, both in a commercial cafe setting and at home. Cake baking provides pleasure beyond the obvious sweet treat - it truly is about nurturing and nostalgia, caring, giving and sharing. No matter which section takes your fancy, all the recipes here are reliable and use honest, accessible ingredients that give delectable results every time.
