Simple recipes for cakes, biscuits, pies, puddings and desserts that celebrate Britain's glorious baking heritage, from Great British Bake Off favourite, Mary-Anne Boermans.
The UK has a fine baking heritage and food writer and baker extraordinaire Mary-Anne Boermans has delved into its history to rediscover the long-forgotten recipes of our past. These are recipes that fill you with confidence, honed and perfected over centuries and lovingly adapted for use in 21st-century kitchens.
These triple-tested recipes do not rely on processed, pre-packaged ingredients. All the ingredients are readily available in the supermarkets or, in a handful of cases, online, and they are all delicious.
In these beautifully designed pages you will fine such tempting delights as Gamrie Knotties, Marlborough Pudding and Almond Flory. And Mary-Anne reveals the stories behind the bakes, such as the fruit-laden Wood Street Cake Lady Anne Murray purchased for the 14-year-old Duke of York (the future James II) after his escape from St James's Palace in 1648, or the crisp gingerbread Parliament Cakes, named for the politicians and notable gentlemen of 18th-century Edinburgh who came to Mrs Flockhart's tavern on the Potterow to partake of her fine fair.
With a foreword by Great British Bake Off and Supersizers Go... presenter, Sue Perkins, this very special collection sits confidently among the best of British cookery writing, with recipes that have stood the test of time and that will both surprise and delight for years to come.
