About this deal

Author and chef Lottie Bedlow—a fan favorite on the television show The Great British Bake Off— will guide you through dozens of tasty recipes with her trademark wit and easygoing nature, helping bakers of all abilities feel confident and comfortable in the kitchen.

I remember trying a Cinnabon in Leicester Square when I was younger and promising myself I would learn how to recreate it - I’m not saying it’s exactly the same but I’m not far off. I found Lottie's snarky good humor instantly appealing, and as the season progressed, her warm and caring nature started to peek out.I developed quite a crush on adorable Lottie Bedlow in the 2020 season of The Great British Bake Off, so I snapped up a copy of Baking Imperfect: Crush, Whip and Spread it Like Nobody's Watching when I saw it at my local library. Before appearing on the show, Lottie was a Pantomime Producer with a degree in Animal Behaviour Studies. Big exam, AP tests coming up, the kitchen would be filled that weekend with all sorts of desserts to be given to friends and family.

From simple recipes to encourage even the most inexperienced bakers through to more ambitious centrepieces, the focus is always on great flavour.

Expect recipes such as triple chocolate and salted caramel-centred cookies, "sin-amon rolls", "minimal faff brioche" and "foolproof custard". Ranging from simple recipes for the inexperienced to ambitious centrepieces, Baking Imperfect gives the reader the “confidence to go for it, encouraging you to try your best without taking baking (or yourself) too seriously”. I get that she was trying to make it accessible for all, but I wish that would have been included in parentheses.At the end of the day, when it comes to food, pleasing the taste buds matters way more than it does the eyes. There are, of course, gorgeous pictures of food, glossary of baking terms, and a list of what you will need before you begin your baking adventure. Teenagers are overloaded, strapped for time, and often asked to wake far earlier than they should because of school start times. Since becoming a household name, Lottie continues to spread joy to her 227K followers on Instagram and on Cameo too. This same humor comes through in the book: Lottie's system of denoting a recipe's difficulty by ranking them 1 to 5 with an adorable cracked egg emoji is just one charming example.

Lottie is based on the south coast where she lives with family, and it is this that's at the heart of her relationship with cooking and baking: Lottie likes to make food that tastes good for the people she loves. I’m very grateful to Octopus and The HHB Agency for believing that I could put that message into my own original recipe book.

Maxfield commented: “I’m thrilled to be championing this extra‐clever baking book that stands out for its unique troubleshooting concept.
