Many of us can still recall a time when family cake tins contained a delicious variety of home-made biscuits, slices, fruit loaves and cakes baked each week by mothers, aunts and grandmothers. The contents of the tins brightened children's lunches, revived them after school, and refreshed friends and visitors at morning and afternoon teatime. Women also baked for suppers and teas at community events in response to the message 'Ladies, a plate' often printed on invitations. Cream-filled sponges, ginger kisses, lamingtons, custard squares, chocolate eclairs, club sandwiches and sausage rolls were just some of the many specialties perfected by home bakers. This is a book for anyone who longs to re-create their favourite treats with over 80 easy-to-follow recipes - all of them tried, tested and true.
