I haven't tried to bake anything from this but just the intro about how baking helped her deal with depression and the instructions are worth five stars, never mind how anything actually turns out.

From "Chocolate, Chili, and Cardamom Tart": "[flatten] them with the blade of a wide knife and then [chop] them as though they insulted your mother."

If the recipes work out that'll just be gravy...or ganache.... ( )

I love Marian Keyes and I love baking - a winner off the bat for me. But never before have I sat down and read a cookbook cover-to-cover. Even if you never make any of the recipes, this book is worth picking up. (But the recipes are awesome too.) ( )

I love this book! I waited so long for it come out. Very different recipes. I have made a few, they are well received. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 071815889X, Hardcover)

Learn to bake with Britain's favourite women's fiction author, Marian Keyes. "Saved by Cake" gives an extremely honest account of Marian Keyes' recent battle with depression, and how baking has helped her. A complete novice in the kitchen, Marian decided to bake a cake for a friend and that was it - she realized that baking was what she needed to do in order to get her through each day. And so she baked, and she wrote her recipes down, and little by little the depression has started to lift, along with her sponges...With chapters on cupcakes, cheesecakes, meringues and macaroons, chocolate cakes, fruit cakes and favourite classics, Marian's recipes are aimed firmly at beginner bakers, offering hints and tips to help along the way. Never patronizing, always honest and witty, accessible and full of fun, the bakes and cakes that Marian serves up in this cookbook will put a smile on your face and make you happy. From her Consistently Reliable Cupcakes and Very Chocolately Macaroons, to the ease of her Fridge-set Honeycomb Cheesecake, you will want to have a go at making all of Marian's recipes. The shoe and handbag biscuits particularly. Very covetable. Very Marian.
