The awesomeness of this faithful old book of mine defies belief :-)
The recipes are reliable, almost fool-proof and amazingly tasty, catering for all tastes, budgets and occasions.
A large variety of chocolate cake recipes constitutes one section, including chocolate zucchini loaf, apricot chocolate chip cake and chocolate peppermint cream cake. Another chapter gives recipes for food processor cakes, which work brilliantly, and yet another for moist syrup drenched cakes.
There are separate sections for quick-mix cakes, vegetable cakes, whole sections devoted to carrot cakes, banana cakes, ginger cakes, fruit cakes, and many more, not to mention the chapters devoted to bars and slices, ideal for pot-luck and church functions. There are also cakes designed for the health-conscious, which are tasty, full of fibre and tend to avoid wheat flour.
Over the years, my daughters and I have made many of the recipes and every single one has turned out really well. It was an inexpensive book when first purchased and is still available cheaply second-hand from Amazon.com.
If you like baking and ever see a copy of this book, buy it -you are very unlikely to be disappointed .
