Mary Berry returns to baking with Fast Cakes

Headline is publishing Mary Berry's baking book Fast Cakes: Easy Bakes in Minutes. 

Publishing in June 2018, the book is pitched as "a must-have for busy bakers" and features almost 200 recipes - half of which only take 10 minutes to make - over 300 pages.

It is based on Fast Cakes, a book Berry first published 37 years ago with Piatkus in 1981. Collected together with recipes from Berry's follow-up book, More Fast Cakes, published in 1988, and beautiful photography, it will be a hardback edition for "a new generation of bakers".

Recipes frequently will incorporate Berry's "all-in-one" method of preparation while promising "no stressful steps or difficult ingredients". There are also small bake variations for fruit cakes, which traditionally take a long time in the oven.

Publisher Muna Reyal acquired world English language rights from Felicity Bryan at Felicity Bryan Associates for Headline Home to publish on 14th June 2018.

Berry said: "I’m delighted that one of my most popular books is to have a complete new lease of life."

According to Headline, Berry’s Baking Bible has sold over 260,000 copies TCM since its publication in 2009.
