Cakes, Bakes and Biscuits is a treasury of modern and classic recipes from the National Trust that you can create in the comfort of your own home, on a lazy Sunday or with the kids. From classic favourites like Victoria sponge and simple fruit cake to treats for children, perfect preserves and even savoury breads and bites, there are over 100 delicious recipes to make and enjoy. These recipes include a variety of cakes, muffins, flapjacks, fancies, scones, tarts, buns, cookies – and even custard cream biscuits! There’s a section on savoury bakes too.

This book also includes regional favourites such as Barm Brack from Wales, Bath Buns and Banbury Cakes. There are also recipes with fascinating connections to NT properties too – Secretary Tarts from Polesden Lacey and Kedleston Marmalade Cake.

With tips and techniques to ensure you get a perfect result every time, Cakes, Bakes and Biscuits is the perfect accompaniment to a classic British teatime.
