My Baking Journal
Editors of Hamlyn
I wouldn’t say ‘My Baking Journal’ was the favourite cake book of my collection, but it does have one great feature – specially designed note pages in-between some of the recipes to jot down your own favourite recipes or tips and a folder to store recipe clippings. I have loads of scraps of paper lying around where I’ve scribbled changes to recipes from books and other baking notes, so that alone makes this book a worthwhile addition to any cooking book collection.
Along with many standard cake recipes and the aforementioned notes section, it also includes a chapter that covers useful information on baking techniques and know-how and every conversion chart you will ever need to reference when baking.
