This book is another absolute corker. My mouth was genuinely watering whilst flicking through! It contains the type of recipes that you want to have a bash at on a drizzly Sunday afternoon. Proper comfort food.
The book is split into
- Biscuits, Bars and Cookies
- Bread and Scones
- Baking with Children
- Crumbles, Tarts and Pithiviers
- Quiches, Pasties, Pies and Savoury Puddings
- Quick and Simple
- Special Occasions
- Supper Bakes
- Teatime Treats
Some of my favourite recipes from the book include the ground cinnamon buns, cheesy tear and share bread (above), Christmas cake (in a holiday bundt tin!) and the Portuguese tarts. I adore reading Jo's work and listening to her talking about her baking. She's such a lovely lady. You can just tell that this is a labour of love because it's what she's done for years. She's making cakes for her grand children that come from her own nan's recipes. She even has a section called Baking with Children to encourage readers to show their own families how to bake. My grandma taught me so I fully understand the desire to pass it on.
This is another beautiful book full of little gems from the lady who won our hearts by being a normal mum who bakes for her family. Here's to book number three.
Home Baking is available exclusively to Sainsburys.
