Summary of the Book:

Fast Cakes is an unmissable, definitive new baking book from Mary Berry. Mary has incorporated her ‘all-in-one’ method of preparation into as many recipes as possible, so her recipes are faster to make than ever. Nearly 100 of the bakes take only 10 minutes to make and Mary has included small bake variations for fruit cakes, which traditionally take a long time in the oven, so you can make one even when you are pushed for time.

There are scones, buns and biscuits that you can whip up for tea, traybakes and fruit loaves perfect for a school or village fete and of course foolproof cakes for every occasion from everyday recipes such as a Honey and Almond Cake to Mary’s First-Rate Chocolate Cake. Not forgetting recipes you can make with your kids from Happy Face Biscuits to Traffic Lights and Jammy Buns.

If you miss Mary’s wisdom and inspiration in The Great British Bake Off, or want a brand-new companion to Mary Berry’s Baking Bible, this is the cookbook for you, with over 150 easy recipes to make with confidence.

Straightforward recipes you can trust, Fast Cakes is a must-have for all busy bakers.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I read most of the recipes in this book and makes me think that I need a kitchen scale so I can weigh ingredients. I loved the pictures included in the book and saw a lot things I would love to try and make. I remember when she was on tv and she would challenge people to make sure recipes. I am no pro baker but I would love to get better at the basic and this book makes me thing I now know where to start.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
