From pastries to cakes, bread to biscuits, this book shows you how easy it is to do your own baking. In a world filled with preservatives and additives, home baking provides you with one of the healthiest, tastiest and cheapest ways of giving you and your family a treat. The mouth watering recipes in this book cover the basics - such as wholesome bread, delicious cakes and tray bakes (some with as little as three ingredients) - as well as a range of special treats for celebrations. As well as a vast recipe section, Diana includes in-depth techniques for perfectly risen cakes, the softest loaves and the crispest shortbread (as well as many more) that will ensure your tins are packed with goodies all year round. When home baking is this easy and tasty, why buy ready made? REVIEWS: 'Includes in-depth techniques for perfectly risen cakes.' Best of British Magazine.
