Staff Reviews

This book is full of 60 easy and accessible recipes for cookies, cakes, bars, and brownies. And if you are like me (and love to bake but hate the mountain of dishes that follows) you will especially appreciate that these are mostly one bowl bakes. Even better, most can be made in under one hour, a perfect answer for that random craving or last-minute dessert plans. You are in for a treat with dazzling recipes like Ginger Cherry Oaties, Blueberry Swirl Blondies, Peanut Butter and Jam Cake with Raspberries - seriously this book has no skips! More of a cake aficionado? Arefi’s first book Snacking Cakes is also a can’t miss for me.
