Just how many cookery/recipe books do you own? For the purposes of this blog post, I've just been to check, and I seem to have somewhere in the region of 35 in all.
Now for my second question: how many of these do you actually use? Is this number dramatically less?
I use only a handful of my books if I'm totally honest. I use my Primrose Bakery book for making my lemon drizzle and my banana and chocolate loaf cakes. I use my Marian Keyes book for delicious rock cakes, and How to be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson produces fool-proof brownies. The others I use rarely, if at all.
The one book I turn to again and again though is a little-known one. I picked it up years ago in The Works for a smidgen of it's rrp and I use it constantly. It never lets me down.
What's your fool-safe go-to baking/cookery book? I wonder if it's on my shelf!
