  2. I can absolutely not live without the Primrose Bakery book! (even though I spend more time drooling over the pretty pictures and going to their branch in the West End to try all the varieties than baking them myself...). Zarina, London (turtlegoescanada AT hotmail DOT com). x

  3. It is still, for me, How to be a Domestic Goddess. I love that book.

  4. I cannot live without whichever baking book I most recently purchased, which is currently (still) the Flour cookbook. I also like to use the big red Betty Crocker book that my mom gave me as a base for more creative baking endeavors.

  5. followed. and now we can tweet ;)

  6. I love the Great British Bake Off book. I adore the show and love it. I also love Lorraine Pascales book!


  7. I still rely on the book that first got me into cupcakes: Cupcake Magic by Kate Shirazi. The recipes she gives are simple, easy to follow, and easy to tweak!

  8. My favourite is - Baking: From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan. So many great recipes, none have ever failed, i love everything in it.
    I don't know what baking book I'm looking forward to this year.

  9. I'm following you on twitter as @lattieh

  11. My favourite ever baking book is 'Mary Berry's Ultimate Cake Book'

    It is fantastic! It has a easy to follow instructions, a wide variety of different recipes- traybakes, non cook bakes, celebration cakes, family favourites, cupcakes, chocolate cakes, cheesecakes. It has it all! This has been my bible for over 10 year.

  14. Well, the old school baking book I ALWAYS go back to is the Be-ro one we've had for years, in various incarnations! But I also love Mary Berry's Baking Bible.

  18. My favourite baking book... hmmm... hard choice! But I would have to say 'Vegan Cupcakes take Over the World' I'm not a vegan, not even a vegetarian, but I love the varied ingredient’s and techniques used. Every cake receipe I have tested has been so yummy! :-)

  19. My favourite baking book has to be Red Velvet and Chocolate Heartache by Harry Eastwood. It is such a beautiful book and I love the use of vegetables in baking!
