Mary Berry's Baking Bible
About this deal
You can also find a whole chapter in Mary Berry’s Baking Bible that delivers more bakes perfect for kids (or kids at heart! Mary’s easy-to-follow instructions and handy tips make it ideal for kitchen novices and more experienced cooks alike, and full-colour photographs and beautiful illustrations will guide you smoothly to baking success. Great guide to so many of the "technical challenges" that Mary Berry has her contestants do on the Great British Baking Show. One negative comment I have about the Baking Bible is that not all the recipes have corresponding photos to show what the final bake should look like! Please take a look at our books page – so many to choose from including the latest books Cook Up A Feast, At Home, Family Sunday Lunches, Complete Cookbook and My Kitchen Table – Sweet treats and puds and Cakes and Bakes.
Mary’s traybake section is superb and a great idea if you have a number of hungry teens to feed, want to take cakes into work or bake for a fete. These foolproof recipes come with clear instructions and cover everything from the classic Victoria Sponge, and Very Best Chocolate Cake to tasty muffins, perfect scones, and comforting bread and butter pudding.Whether you're looking for some textbooks for university, the latest biography or a travel guide - you'll find what you need in our categories. Number One on my list is the Victoria Sponge - quickly whipped up, the layers sandwiched together with strawberry (or raspberry) jam and either whipped cream or a buttercream frosting and the top simply dusted with powdered sugar. On the other hand, if you've been putting off exploring the world of true British baking because you aren't comfortable using metrics, then this is a great place to start. Among the things that filled the second suitcase were hard to get, very expensive here but not in the UK items like Maldon salt, Billings sugars, stem ginger and golden syrup was a copy of Mary's first edition Mary Berry's Baking Bible.
It’s not just her personality that does this, but her no-nonsense recipes that the everyday Joe and Jane can actually make at home.It needed to be made clearer that the book was second hand, maybe this was down to me not reading all the information.
This texture-packed loaf can be found in the chapter on bread, and is a lovely recipe to pull out as an accompaniment for dinner party cheese boards or for topping with cream cheese and smoked salmon at a weekend brunch. While I didn't go thru the entire index, the one recipe I noticed that is different than the original is the Pavlova. So many different recipes in this book I honestly think it’s the only book I will ever need for baking. I've tried a good number of recipes and, following the instructions, everything's turned out perfectly and has been very tasty! The metric measurements have all been converted to US standard, plain flour is now all-purpose and so on.
I won't rate/review a cookbook until I actually try a recipe so the first recipe I tried was The Pavlova.
