From The Manufacturer

When Nadiya Hussain, the UK’s “national treasure,” began cooking, she headed straight to the oven—which, in her home, wasn’t used for baking, but rather for storing frying pans! One day, her new husband asked her to bake him a cake and then . . . she was hooked! Baking soon became a part of her daily life. In her newest cookbook, based on her Netflix show and BBC series Nadiya Bakes, Nadiya shares more than 100 simple and achievable recipes for cakes, cookies, breads, tarts, and puddings that will become staples in your home. From Raspberry Amaretti Biscuits and Key Lime Cupcakes to Cheat’s Sourdough and Spiced Squash Strudel, Nadiya has created an ultimate baking resource for just about every baked good that will entice beginner bakers and experienced pastry makers alike.

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

There are so many 'ordinary' bakes here with such great twists, adding freshness and interest. Instructions are clear, photography is gorgeous, and Nadiya herself is like a ray of sunshine.
Hussain also includes notable chapters on no-bake bakes—ideal for summer months—and savory bakes, perfect for lunches or dinners. The star baker’s fans will no-doubt delight in these stellar offerings.
Even beginners can make these intricate loaves of bread, tarts, puddings, cakes, and more. By the end of this book, you’ll feel like a novice chef.
The recipes themselves are detailed and well-written; the inclusion of measurements in cups and grams is particularly helpful.

What reviewers didn't like

My only issue is there is not enough photos. I believe a cook book should include a photo for each recipe.
Unfortunately, this is another cookbook that didn’t come with many pictures.
While this cookbook is packed with photos, not every recipe is accompanied by an image of the final dish. With some recipes having almost a dozen photos and others having none, the book sometimes feels a bit unbalanced.
