  • ISBN-10: 1465453237
  • ISBN-13: 978-1465453235


Baking with Mary Berry draws on Mary's more than 60 years in the kitchen, with tips and step-by-step instructions for bakers just starting out and full-color photographs of finished dishes throughout. The recipes follow Mary's prescription for dishes that are no fuss, practical, and foolproof—from breakfast goods to cookies, cakes, pastries, and pies, to special occasion desserts such as cheesecake and soufflés, to British favorites that will inspire.
Whether you're tempted by Mary's Heavenly Chocolate Cake and Best-Ever Brownies, intrigued by her Mincemeat and Almond Tart or Magic Lemon Pudding, or inspired by her Rich Fruit Christmas Cake and Ultimate Chocolate Roulade, the straightforward yet special recipes in Baking with Mary Berry will prove, as one reviewer has said of her recipes, "if you can read, you can cook."

Let me just start out this review with an ...
 "Oh my goodness ~ I'm in Dessert Heaven!"  

I can cook well but I've not been much of a baker. After watching The Great British Bake Off (and drooling over all of those luscious sweets), I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to review Mary Berry's newest cookbook, Baking with Mary Berry

I was enthralled by the recipes in this cookbook
Baking With Mary Berry but also a bit nervous because some of them are rather fancy. I wondered if I would ever be able to make them?  But as I love desserts of most any kind, I decided to go for it!  

Her recipes are clear, understandable and each recipes is written with our American measurements which makes it so much easier than having to convert to the metric measurements.  

I plan to start with the simpler muffin recipes, chocolate cake and brownies then work my way up to the more fancier desserts like coffee eclair, royal raspberry tart.  I don't think my family will mind being my taste testers; they're already going through the cook book marking down the recipes they would like to have me make. {Smile}

This book would make a fantastic gift for someone in your life who loves to bake or is yearning to learn. At the time of this post ~ Ama*zon has a special ($1.99) on sale for the kindle version of Baking with Mary Berry.

5 Stars! 

Thank you to Edelweiss and DK publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
