The ultimate guide to classic bakes and modern favorites that doesn’t just tell you what to do – it shows you.
What’s the difference between beating and folding? What should soft peaks look like? How do you line a pastry crust? When it comes to baking, knowing what an instruction means can be the difference between a showstopper and a soggy bottom. That’s where Illustrated Step-by-Step Baking comes in.
Each of the 80 classic recipes in this essential collection is fully illustrated, with photographs of every stage of the baking process.

If you’re spoilt for choice, at-a-glance recipe choosers help you find the right recipe for any occasion, while tips on freezing help you to prepare your bakes ahead of time. With sweet and savory recipes that everyone will enjoy, it’s time to roll up your sleeves, flour your work surface, and whip up something superb with Illustrated Step-by-Step Baking.
