Baking should be rewarding and stress-free but sometimes it can seem like a chore. In "Weekend Baking", Sarah Randell offers delicious treats that the whole family will love, without demanding hours in the kitchen. Turn to Small Cakes, Muffins and Meringues and bake a batch of Crunchy-topped raspberry and banana muffins. Cookies and Biscuits are for adults and kids alike - the little ones will love helping out with Bright-as-a-button biscuits. When you want to pop a treat in your child's school lunchbox, Tray Bakes, Bars and Slices like Throw-together muesli squares will come to the rescue. If you've promised to bring a cake to a friend's house for a get-together, why not try baking something In a Flash? Apple and Amaretto cake is to-die-for and speedy to make. Make use of a free hour on the weekend to get ahead and fill the tins with something moreish like a really lemony gluten-free cake. Finally, when a Special Occasion calls for a special cake, you'll find plenty of inspiration in this chapter.
