Baking with Mary Berry
A sweet and savory collection of more than 100 foolproof recipes from the reigning "Queen of Baking" Mary Berry, who has made her way into American homes through ABC's primetime series, The Great Holiday Baking Show, and the PBS series, The Great British Baking Show.Baking with Mary Berry draws on Mary's more than 60 years in the kitchen, with tips and step-by-step instructions for bakers just starting out and full-color photographs of finished dishes throughout. The recipes follow Mary's prescription for dishes that are no fuss, practical, and foolproof--from breakfast goods to cookies, cakes, pastries, and pies, to special occasion desserts such as cheesecake and soufflés, to British favorites that will inspire.Whether you're tempted by Mary's Heavenly Chocolate Cake and Best-Ever Brownies, intrigued by her Mincemeat and Almond Tart or Magic Lemon Pudding, or inspired by her Rich Fruit Christmas Cake and Ultimate Chocolate Roulade, the straightforward yet special recipes in Baking with Mary Berry will prove, as one reviewer has said of her recipes, "if you can read, you can cook."Author Bio:Mary Berry is one of the UK's best-loved and most respected cooking writers and bakers, with more than 80 books to her name and over 6 million copies sold. She is a judge on the primetime ABC series The Great Holiday Baking Show and the PBS series The Great British Baking Show, based on the hit BBC TV program (The Great British Bake Off). Her focus on family food and on recipes that are no fuss, practical, and foolproof have won her a legion of fans worldwide. She lives in England and has five grandchildren--with whom she regularly bakes.

    I adore the Great British Bake Off, and one of the vital parts of that show is Mary Berry. She's a shrewd baker who provides thoughtful, considerate critiques, and is best known for her judgment of pies with soggy bottoms.

I was delighted when my mom bought this cookbook for me for Christmas. Mary has published scads of cookbooks in the UK, but this is the only one released in the States with American-standard measurements.I had permission from my mom to not wrap this gift, but to utilize it for the holidays. Therefore, on Christmas Eve, I made Mary's recipe for double-crust apple pie, which also used her recipe for rough puff pastry. It was different than my usual apple pies--the apples are softened on the stove top, which drains off a lot of juice--but the resulting pie was good. It was less sugary than our American-style apple pies, usually loaded with caramel or spices, but it really emphasized the apple and the pastry together. Plus, it did NOT have a soggy bottom.There are a bunch of other recipes I'm eager to try, too, such as choux pastry (a total failure the one time I tried it years ago), chocolate muffins and cakes, an apple tart, and a Swiss roll. I don't think Mary Berry will steer me wrong!

    Like many others, I am a fan of The Great British Bakeoff and wanted a cookbook that would give me recipes with similar tips for success that you get on the show.

While this book has many things that I like in a cookbook, such as an easy-to-read layout, informative table of contents, and color pictures, I was disappointed that each recipe is simply a list of ingredients and basic directions. I didn't realize, until I tried to use this cookbook, that I look for recipes to have a little blurb or description of variations, troubleshooting, or even a description of what it is traditionally served with. Very few recipes in this book have a blurb, and so I was left feeling like this book is not as comprehensive as I would expect from the proclaimed "queen of baking." I tried the recipe for choux pastry, and its ingredients and directions were too basic. My pastries were too flat and not crisp enough. If she had written a few of the tips that I learned from watching the episodes of Bake Off (and others I learned in doing my own research about choux pastry), I would have given this a higher rating and felt like it lived up to the expectation.

All of it was or looks simple-- most had 3 - 5 steps and basic ingredients like flour, sugar, butter. And the one ingredient I had to buy (sunflower oil) was easily available at the grocery store (I live in a large city). I first made the Zucchini Loaf (8 ingredients/ 4 steps) and it was delicious. So good I served it as a "side" with dinner because I couldn't stop eating it. To be honest the only thing I thought that might be a bummer was that I was going to have to convert the measurements the way I sometimes have to for European cookbooks/blogs but I didn't. This is definitely a good buy for fans of Mary Berry, The Great British Bake Off, or as a gift for anyone who enjoys baking-- or wants to start.

I didn’t see anything really interesting that I’d want to make...so, kind of meh for me. Oh, well. Maybe I was looking for newer, more interesting recipes.

    I get the feeling this is a book compiled by editors, and Mary Berry's name and picture are put on it. Not many tips on how to do things, a collection of desserts, WAY too many fruit cakes. Also, a few recipes had steps naming ingredients, but the ingredient isn't in the list, so you have no idea how much you need.

    The technique chapters in the beginning are must-reads. Her recipes are concise, yet yummy. This is a very British book (treacle tart, anyone?) but the measurements are converted and there are lots of pictures to guide you. Worth checking out if you like to bake; I really enjoy her no-nonsense approach.

    The formatting on this book was off and didn't work well. I tried it on multiple devices. These recipes also seemed more basic and lacked the creativity that I enjoy from her recipes. This is however, a wonderful book for beginners that would like a good explanation from a master.

There is a section at the beginning that serves as a crash course in baking essentials like how to make a shortcrust pastry, making meringues, making sponge cake, etc., which I found really useful. My main complaint is that there are hardly any blurbs to accompany the recipes -- nothing about the background or history of each recipe or suggestions for serving or substitutions. Half the fun of cookbooks are the recipe blurbs, and I was really hoping to find some in Mary Berry's trademark voice: extremely proper with a hint of sass. I didn't find much of that here, but still found some good recipes just the same.

Berry really does cover it all, from muffins, loafs to cakes, pies, tarts, cookies - and British favourites. This was my favourite chapter! Devon scones, treacle tarts, Banoffi pie, sticky toffee pudding and more. Absolute comfort food that reminds me of my gran. Every recipe looks delicious and there are some unusual pairings I have to try - Chocolate and Beet cake!?The layout of the book is clean and easy to read. The recipes call for ingredients most bakers will have in the fridge or cupboard. The methods are also clear and easy to follow with only 3-7 steps in each. My only wish is that colour photos had been included with every recipe. Those that are look delicious. No nutritional info is included. But butter, sugar and chocolate are, so it's probably better to just enjoy a treat without worrying.This is a cookbook I'll be using and enjoying for many years.

Her recipes are clear, understandable and each recipes is written with our American measurements which makes it so much easier than having to convert to the metric measurements. I plan to start with the simpler muffin recipes, chocolate cake and brownies then work my way up to the more fancier desserts like coffee eclair, royal raspberry tart. I don't think my family will mind being my taste testers; they're already going through the cook book marking down the recipes they would like to have me make. {LOL}This book would make a fantastic gift for someone in your life who loves to bake or is yearning to learn.

However, the Chocolate Fudge Frosting recipe which is included just didn't work for me. I tossed my first lumpy attempt in the garbage can. On the second try, I adjusted the ingredients, and hey presto! I had a spreadable chocolate frosting. I wonder if something got lost between the translation of British ounces to American cup measurements? Anyhow, it left me feeling somewhat reluctant to try any other recipes, even the ones in the British favorites section.

    Many people will probably pick this book up, as I did, as fans of Berry from The Great British Baking Show on PBS. I have to say I was underwhelmed, partly because it was fairly basic but more because there were very few stories leading up to the recipes. You know, the "I make this for my granddaughter every year" or "This is just like the cake they serve at such-and-such hotel" stories that add so much to cookbooks. I did like seeing some of the traditionally British desserts in here.
