Nothing smells more enticing than the aroma of freshly baked bread.
Here is just a taste: Focaccia, Sour Dough and Pumpernickel as well as Hot Cross,
Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns. For brunch, add a delicious touch with a basket
of Currant Scones, Savoury Cheese Biscuits or Irish Soda Bread.
Flavours are captured in Berry Cream, Banana Nut and Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
served fresh from the oven. The scrumptious Strawberry and Rhubarb Loaf or
Spicy Pumpkin Bread will appeal even to the most finicky eater.
Everyone loves homemade cookies, especially when they’re this good! From Apple ’N’ Raisin
to Double Chocolate Drops, Whipped Shortbread to Coconut Macaroons, Gingersnaps
to Jam-Jams, you’ll love these adaptations of time-honoured favourites.
The only hard part will be choosing which one to make first.
Luscious Lemon Squares or Coconut-Raspberry Bars, Apricot Squares and
Granola Bars are guaranteed winners. For a chocolate treat indulge
in the egg and milk-free Chocolate Fudge Brownies.10
Celebrations and cakes – the two are inseparable. Mark your next festive occasion with
a Prize Winning Carrot Cake, a Spectacular Angel Food, or the Rich Dark Fruitcake.
Deliciousness reigns with the Orange-Delight Cupcakes and Butter Frosting.
For the finale, the stay-moist drop donuts called Gem Bits, are sensational.
Preparing a good pie crust has become something of a lost art. The easy-to-follow
instructions will have you making the perfect pie crust every time. Make the most
of summer’s flavours with Raspberry, Blueberry or Peach Pie. The fresh taste
of lemon is at its best in Lemon Meringue Pie. Holidays just wouldn’t be
the same without Autumn Apple or Maple Pecan Pie.
Here is a profusion of choices for ending any meal. Country meets city when
old-fashioned Apple Brown Betty, Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler or Pineapple Upside Down
Cake is served. For a show-stopping dessert, serve your guests one of these:
Chocolate Raspberry Mousse, Black Forest Cake or Sticky Toffee Pudding!
