I was sent this handy little recipe book by a friend who had obviously seen my attempts at baking. Anyway as soon as I recieved the book I thought excellent I can finally stop guessing and maybe even produce something that atleast resembled a cake of some sort. I am a wonderfull cook (but not at all big headed), but I was not given the flair for baking when i was born. The first recipe I tried out of the be ro home recipes book was a basic chocolate sponge cake and I must say I was most impressed how even I was able to follow a simple recipe that did not involve using daft ingredients such as the grated zest of this and a pinch or so of that, it just made a cake that was simple just like the ones Mum used to make. If I was to re-brand this little recipe book I would call it "the idiots guide to baking" because it's not for people who can already bake it's for idiots like me. (doesn't honesty hurt sometimes)

Hey - I've got this book - it was my mum's so you could say I inherited it. Good basic guide though. Hazel xx

Are all the recipes for cakes then? A brief overview of the cookbook would make it more helpful - I presume most of the recipes use flour? If I wanted to know whether or not to buy the book I would want top know if it included recipes for starters, main courses, deserts, snacks and of course cakes and biscuits/cookies; muffins and so forth - a few examples of other different recipes could be helpful - after all - it isnot as if there was a problem with writing too much being a "plot spoiler" as there would be with a story... jes ≈≈≈≈{; -)-{{:::{||||||<
