My boyfriend surprised me with book recently and what a good surprise it was! It is by Great British Bake Off finalist Ruby Tandoh and having tried out several of her recipes from her Guardian coloumn I was keen to put the book through its paces. The book focusses on baking and is split into several chapters each on a different type of baked good. Each of these chapters then gives tricks, tips and hints to help achieve the perfect loaf, excellent pastry and moist cakes. There are then two additional chapters, the introduction and ‘extras’, which detail essential equipment, conversions and a glossary of key baking terms.’Extras’ gives instructions on how to perfect the basics such as custard, caramel and chocolate sauce.
I tried out the spiced oat thins and they were so quick and easy to bake and tasted SO good. I loved the combination of flavours which were perfect for the wintery months.
