From the cover: “Take a trip down memory lane with Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer and discover what the treats from your favourite childhood books really taste like. With recipes such as Bad Harry’s Birthday Trifle (My Naughty Little Sister), Swallows and Amazons Seed Cake (Swallows and Amazons) and Mrs Beaver’s Gloriously Sticky Marmalade Roll (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), you’ll be lost in nostalgia for a time when food was always scrumptious and the summer hols stretched out endlessly.
Divided into tantalising sections including Proper Elevenses, Picnic Treats, and Lessons in the Kitchen, each tried-and-tested recipe follows an evocative introduction of the book that inspired it, so you can relive timeless episodes from the children’s classics as you bake Jane Brocket’s delicious delights.
Guaranteed to take you straight back to your childhood, Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer is an escapist treat for grown-ups and will encourage you to read those much-loved books from your past and share them with the next generation. Now you can make More-Jam-Than-Puff Jam Puffs for an adventure in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and cakes that would make Mary Poppins exclaim, ‘strike me pink!’ “
