I have been on the lookout for a copy of this book since I took it out of the library over a year ago. I was talking about baking last month (as you do) and the friend I was talking to mentioned they had just bought a copy of this particular book at a second-hand book shop in Kalk Bay and then, get this, there was another copy on the shelf at the time. With great excitement, I immediately phoned the shop to reserve it.
To my surprise and delight, I unwrapped a near perfect and seemingly unused copy of it two days later on Christmas day. Thank you Jane and Gordon, it’s a wonderful, practical and comprehensive book of thoroughly tested recipes which will be a perfect base from which I can ‘play’ from. It was published in 1994.
I also have the Golden Cloud book: Home Bakes, by Carolie De Koster (Published by Lannice Snyman in 2001) which is superb. I have my eye on the double white chocolate cake recipe in there, so watch this space.
