About this deal

Paula Deen's 4 layer coconut confection with lemon curd between the layers and real buttercream frosting a half-inch thick that takes all day and every dish in the kitchen to make would never appear on a British table. Whether you want to go all out for a homemade eggs Benedict or simply enjoy these fluffy English muffins warm from the oven with plenty of butter, this is a must-try recipe for any baker.

I received an ARC of from NetGalley and Clarkson Potter/Ten Speed Press in exchange for an honest review.

I use quite a lot of recipes by Mary Berry, as always find her recipes are simple to make and the majority of ingredients are inexpensive to purchase.

The recipe introductions are on the fluffy side (I'd have liked more background/history) and only half of the recipes include photographs, which is a shame from a visual perspective as well as that of the home baker, who might like to know what the finished product should look like. Head notes are generally succinct statements about how tasty the recipe is and whether the it is a multipart affair. It feels like I’ve baked lots of recipes from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible however when I looked at the list of contents I realised how many more I still have to do (list of recipes in the book below with the recipes I’ve tried highlighted in bold). The original version of Mary Berry's Baking Bible (which is still available) uses metric measurements, so you need a scale, and requires a bit of translation for things like plain flour and caster sugar.

I'd like to kindly thank NetGalley and Clarkson Potter/Ten Speed Press for granting me access to this Advanced Reader Copy. There is something in this cookbook for everyone, whether it’s a basic chocolate chip muffin or something a little more British (Welsh? Easy-to-follow and made with easy-to-access ingredients, I had great fun testing a number of them out for myself and for friends!

Thank you NetGalley and Clarkson Potter/Ten Speed Press for this eARC in exchange for my honest review. So many different recipes in this book I honestly think it’s the only book I will ever need for baking. I loved her when she was on the Great British Bake Off, and I have a previous cookbook of hers as well. Dame Mary Berry is the nation's favourite baker and author of over 70 books, including the bestselling Mary Berry Cooks , Mary Berry's Absolute Favourites , Mary Berry At Home and Mary Berry's Baking Bible . That's where I first found Mary Berry, though she has been an icon of British home cooking since the early 60's.While I didn't go thru the entire index, the one recipe I noticed that is different than the original is the Pavlova. This definitive collection from the undisputed queen of cakes brings together all of Mary Berry's most mouth-watering baking recipes in a beautifully packaged edition.

Naturally, I scooped up Mary Berry's Baking Bible from my local library so I could drool over the photos and read about how knowledgeable Ms. This definitive collection from the undisputed queen of cakes brings together all of Mary Berry’s most mouth-watering baking recipes in one volume. First published in 2009, Mary Berry’s Baking Bible has long been the essential guide for bakers of all skill levels.There's recipes for beginners and more advanced bakers, recipes that can engage kids and challenge adults. It is in very poor condition, the spine is damaged and the glue has come unattached the full length of the book, the pages all appear to be intact. Biography: Dame Mary Berry is the nation's favourite baker and author of over 70 books, including the bestselling Mary Berry Cooks, Mary Berry's Absolute Favourites, Mary Berry At Home and Mary Berry's Baking Bible. That's what Mary stated in her foreword that she first published her cookbooks to help people learn the basics of homebaking and how easy it can really be. The use of extra large eggs and salted butter (or buttery spread) in most recipes was unusual (to me).
