One of the now many books in this series of handy little books, this one being devoted to cakes and bakes. After a brief introduction which discusses the basics of baking the recipes are presented one to a double page, with text on one page and a full colour photograph on the facing page. The instructions are clear and the majority of the recipes uncomplicated and given a preparation time of between 10 to 30 minutes, occasionally more - although I'm always a little sceptical of such timings, I invariably find they take a lot longer.

The range of recipes is wide and grouped under the following headings: little cakes; cookies; traybakes; centrepiece cakes; cut-and-come-again cakes; pastries; and no-bake cakes. Among these one can find the familiar and less familiar. There is an index, but as with other books in this series I find the index rather irritating, in this case recipes are listed under one or more of the ingredients and not by name of type of cake, which does not always make it easy to find what you are looking for.

As with other books in the series, this is very good value for money. ( )
