'If there's space by your oven for a new baking bible, this is the one.' Australian Gourmet Traveller
Belinda Jeffery baked her first cake at the age of five or six, standing by her beloved mother’s side. Ever since then, baking has been her passion.
In Mix & Bake, she shares her 100 all-time favourite recipes for cakes, scones, muffins, biscuits, slices, quick breads, pies and tarts, in the hope that they will become your favourites too. Enjoy sweet treats such as macadamia and chocolate chip brownies and a gooey butterscotch peach cake or savoury goods such as dill, ricotta and parmesan muffins and pumpernickel and polenta soda bread.
Beautifully illustrated with photographs by Belinda’s long-time collaborator Rodney Weidland, Mix & Bake is bound to become a much-loved and well-used addition to your kitchen bookshelf.
There are many ways to compliment cookbook authors: food-smeared pages for one, and several of their books on your bookshelf. But the greatest compliment has to be the taking to heart of a recipe that has worked – and worked well. All around the country, cooks pay these compliments and more to Belinda Jeffery. She has a wonderful knack of creating recipes for food that you want to cook over and over again, and a warm, distinctive writing style. An award-winning author, Belinda has worked as a chef, TV food presenter, freelance writer, restaurant reviewer and cooking teacher. Her books include Belinda Jeffery's Collected Recipes (a compilation of her first two books, Belinda Jeffery's 100 Favourite Recipes and Belinda Jeffery's Tried-and-True Recipes); Mix & Bake; The Country Cookbook (all about living and cooking in the Byron area), and Desserts.
