Jo Wheatley – A Passion For Baking Book

My dad bought me this book a week ago and there so many items I want to try and make.


There are 10 chapters to choose from and I found one item in each chapter I want to try and bake.


In this chapter I found a pastry dough I would to try and make because it will give me practice making bread.



In this chapter I found something I would to make for my husband and I for dinner and it is piggies in blanket Danish because I love all three things sausage,bacon and bread.


Family Baking

In this chapter I found something that could make as a present for family which is white chocolate tiffin. Many people like the mixture of chocolate n fruit.


Afternoon Tea

In this chapter I found a treat for family when they come down for a cup of tea which is mini mint choc chip shots which are so lovely and easy to make.


Celebration Bakes

In this chapter I wanted different to try and make. I thought I would make mince pies because everyone loves these for Christmas.


Baking With Children

My little girl has started to want to bake and she would love to make these hedgehog rolls to show off her talent.



Breads is something I have to keep practicing on and one that my husband would love would be raspberry iced fingers.



I love biscuits in any flavour and would love to try and make Viennese fingers.



Pies are something everyone loves especially this apple and raspberry meringue pie.



There is something that might be good to try and have a go at which is strawberry cream choc cups.
