Overview

Take a trip down memory lane and discover recipes for delicious, retro-style cakes and cookies that are perfect for a morning snack, afternoon tea, or an after-dinner treat. Small Cakes, Buns, and Bars includes tasty lemon bars, rich chocolate fridge cake, and pretty butterfly cakes. In the second chapter, Cookies and Other Treats, choose from the wonderfully named snickerdoodles, to buttery melting moments, and scrumptious Jam Sandwich cookies, otherwise known as Jammie Dodgers. Finally, you’ll be spoilt for choice in Large Cakes—try decadent devil’s food cake, moist spiced apple cake, or festive Christmas yule log. With cooking tips and variations, as well as interesting “Did You Know?” facts about the history of the cakes, this is a lovely book for your own shelves, or an ideal gift for a friend that captures the magic of traditional home baking.
