Delia's Book of Cakes was first published in 1977, and such is the staying power of this 35-year-old phenomenon, it has never been out of print.
Now, to celebrate its success, it has undergone a complete
contemporary makeover. It still retains the much-loved favourites
that have stood the test of time, but now alongside them there are
new recipes, new ideas, new ingredients, and new and simpler
methods. Over 90% of the recipes in the book have been tested
From timeless classics like coffee and walnut sponge and
old-fashioned cherry cake, to seasonal classice like Christmas and
simnel cake, to exciting new recipes such as iced hidden strawberry
cup cakes and chunky marmalade muffins, Delia brings her touch of
baking magic to your kitchen.
All this is as you would expect from Delia: easy accessible
recipes, carefully tested, and utterly to be trusted.
Quite simply - as then, so now - the only book of cakes you'll ever
need is Delia's Cakes.
