The Great British Bake Off: Learn to Bake will bring baking to the heart of the family -- the parents, grandparents and children who watch The Great British Bake Off, but may never have baked before.
And it's a great way for the family to spend time together -- doing something fun, creative, learning a new skill -- and you'll end up with something delicious that you've all made together.
Learn how to make scones together, step-by-step, and then each choose your own way to customise them. See who can make the most tempting scones -- will the rest of the family choose the cheese or chorizo version that mum made, or the sweet cocoa and dried cherry scone that your brother chose. And if it's pouring with rain outside, you can easily spend a few happy hours making Giant Cookies and then decorating them as you see fit. The ingredients are store cupboard ingredients so you'll always have them to hand, and then use whatever else you might have to decorate. The important thing is to just get stuck in.
If you're throwing a bonfire party, why not get your kids to make our bonfire brownies. And the whole family can join in making pretzels - one to mix the dough, smaller hands good for kneading, and another to shape.
Here are 80 easy recipes to make, together with step-by-step techniques including creaming, whisking, rubbing in, all-in-one cakes, as well as informative reference pictures of key baking stages. The perfect baking book to kickstart your baking.
