A book full of deliciousness -

Bought this book just before Christmas as it was one of the few books that I had seen which was full of just cake recipes. Lots of classics with a twist and a few new ones. My New Year's Resolution was to bake at least one cake a week rather than buy all the pre-processed rubbish, I've been true to my word and then some, the recipes are easy to follow, the ingredients in the main are readily available and I've been very pleased with the results, steer clear of the peanut butter and choc brownies though, I think there is a typing error with the sugar quantity and it was vile, but 99% of the recipes are great and i would recommend it thoroughly.

Easy baking -

Recently purchased Rachel's book and have tried several of the recipes which were a great success. Love the fact that I can try some of the recipes without buying lots of expensive ingredients. Made a cake out of ground almonds and dates the other day, absolutely delicious. Well worth a try.
