‘The Comfort Bake’ by Sally Wise OAM

Life can be stressful and tough and sometimes just a bit ... meh. Baking is the perfect antidote to busy times, providing a double dose of solace: the contemplative act of baking itself, and the great big buttery prize at the end, which tastes even better when shared. You don't need fancy equipment or specialist skills. In this foolproof recipe collection, icon of good old-fashioned country cooking Sally Wise serves up recipes that are big on comfort and low on fuss. Savoury classics (including pies, quiches, breads and focaccia - and the creamiest potato bake ever) sit alongside a glorious line-up of sweet treats, including Coffee Hazelnut Cake with Espresso Drizzle, Rhubarb & Caramel Slice, Spiced Ginger Cookie Sandwiches and a simple Whisky & Orange Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding. 'The Comfort Bake' is all the invitation you need to nourish yourself and your loved ones with food that warms the heart.
