We are all aware of the benefits of eating seasonally and healthily, and yet often this isn't something we consider when baking. Amber believes that cakes, bakes and puddings shouldn't be made with refined white flour and white sugar. She develops recipes using fruit and honey to give sweetness and ancient flours such as buckwheat, spelt and rye to give depth of flavour. Chapters are Seasonal Cakes; Puddings, including baked fruit, crumbles, pies, sponge and rice puddings; Tarts and Meringues; Small Bakes; Creams, Custards & Compotes; and Herbal Teas. Enjoy making an Apple and Rye Cake with a crumbly topping; make Berry Good Fairy Cakes for the kids, create a Coconut & Passionfruit Tart for a dinner party, or try the healthy Mince Pies with an orange zest pastry; and even make your own home-made herbal teas. Baking is always indulgent but, with Amber, it can be nourishing too.
