About the Book

This is a completely replanned and re-written book which incorporates all Good Housekeeping Institute's latest work on home baking, with modern labour-saving methods, equipment and ingredients introduced wherever appropriate. There are hundreds of detailed, easy-to-follow recipes for cakes large and small, biscuits, cookies, children's novelty cakes, continental gâteaux and pastries, scones, teabreads, yeast breads and buns, and celebration cakes of all kinds, including ten iced and decorated wedding cakes. The splendid colour pictures and nearly 300 black and white photographs make it even easier to follow the recipes—all tested, of course, in Good Housekeeping Institute's own kitchens.
