Overview
-

Scottish baking is famous the world over. In this book, Liz Ashworth introduces a whole range of recipes arranged by theme – Bannocks, Breads and Scones; Biscuits; Tarts and Traybakes; and Cakes and Wee Fancies.

From bannocks to butteries, seaweed nibbles to shortbread, from  indulgent lemon Madeira cake and light-as-a-feather strawberry sandwich cake to wee fancies such as raspberry buns and ‘sair heideis’, the book features 40 recipes from all over the country. All are graded according to level of complexity (though none are difficult), making it ideal for bakers of all abilities to explore this glorious part of Scotland’s culinary heritage.
