Delia's Cakes

If you are going to buy any new baking book this year then this has to be the one. At the moment it’s on offer to buy from Thursday at Amazon, for £15 instead of £25 and worth every penny of it.

You name it, the cake is in this book from classic sponge cakes, loaf cakes (my favourite) family cakes, muffins, biscuits, celebration cakes and dessert cakes.

With information on the tyranny of tins, cake tin liners, how to remove cakes from tins, equipment, using the right ingredients and conversion tables.

It would make an excellent Mother’s Day present (must send that email to the kids!!).
