Recipes, Recipes, Recipes

I often get asked what my favourite baking book is and this is actually a pretty difficult question to answer as I have so many. I seem to have a bit of an addiction to buying all the new ones when they come out and I also have all my Mum's and Gran's old ones too! There's nothing like a cup of tea and a flick through your favourite cook book to make you feel better (and I can claim it's for 'work'!). 

So, I would say that one of my favourite all time is the classic Be-Ro book. I have used this book when I first learnt to bake when I was tiny and it's still the book I turn to when I'm making a Victoria sandwich cake or some shortbread. If you don't have it in your collection, I seriously recommend it-retro and great! In terms of more modern books, I think anything by the fantastic Rachel Allen is superb. In particular, her 'Bake' and (just out last month) her 'Cake' books are inspirational and the recipes always work. Happy Baking!
