A little while ago, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of Margaret Fulton’s ‘Baking Classics’.
I have loved this booked and have made a few things out of it, which is more than I usually do with cookbooks – I often enjoy looking at the pictures and decide there are too many ingredients or steps to make the effort. Not so with this book.
We all know Margaret Fulton as the baking queen, and in this book are lots of classic recipes for all sort of sweet treats. Lots of them are really simple, and lots of them use regular ingredients; you know, like stuff you always have on hand, or you might need to buy one or two things, but not a whole host of things you’ll probably never use again.
Here are a couple of things I have made from the book:
Chocolate caramel slice – sweet, salty, chocolatey, and not too stingy on any of the layers makes this slice so decadent.
Apricot and coconut slice – not too many steps, and the dried apricots are stewed such that it gives the slice a nice, tart flavour.
And these yummy lemon melting moments. These turned out to be so delicious. I’ve never made melting moments before, but these were well worth the effort, and they really delivered.
And here are some things that are on my list to try out…
Pecan caramel slice
Double chocolate cake
Black forest cherry torte
If you’re looking for a new book to treat yourself (or someone at Christmas), this is sure to go down well.
