    Someone (Bob Dorough, but you may be more familiar with the De La Soul version) once sang that three is the magic number and this book proves that statement to be true. It's packed with recipes for cakes, breads, biscuits and desserts that only use three ingredients each!

    Three-ingredient baking is so popular right now with YouTube videos racking up millions of views and this book helps you make the most of it. Each recipe only has three ingredients - there are not even any seasonings or hidden extras.

    Suitable for bakers of all levels, every treat is fast, convenient and easy to make and among the 100 recipes are an almost-instant Christmas cake, banana bread baked in a slow cooker, muffins made from ginger beer and bread conjured from ice cream (!).
