It was my birthday last week and my family pandered to my predilection for baking, by giving me David Herbert's Best-ever Baking Recipes, published by Penguin Australia.
I think David Herbert is an excellent cookbook author. His Complete Perfect Recipes is one of my constant references in the kitchen. His Really Useful Cookbook, too is really useful. And my goodness me, this baking book is a cornucopia of baked deliciousness. Where to start?
Being a big fan of the carrot cake, I tried this recipe first. It lives up to all a carrot cake should be. I've also made the Date Dainties, a recipe from the 1930s. Yummo.
I look forward to baking my way through this book. I know the family looks forward to it too.
