A labour of love and transcontinental collaboration between two good friends, 'Our Sweet Kitchen' gathers 50 classic cake recipes from cupcakes to pound cakes – all brought to you from the comforts of their home kitchens. Together, this dynamic baking duo takes on iconic bakes, incorporating exotic spices and tropical fruits to create treats that are comforting and indulgent with just a touch of the East.
The idea of writing a book like this one came to each individually before they met and became friends through their blogs: an idea to put together a record of sweet recipes that they had come to cherish over the years. They hope to inspire women like themselves, busy women without the benefit of generations of inherited baking wisdom, to roll up their sleeves and start baking simple and delicious treats. The philosophy behind the recipes included in' Our Sweet Kitchen' is "simple with style". There is a deep respect for natural ingredients, with inspiration gleaned from seasonal and local produce. All the recipes in this book use natural ingredients, skipping colourings and flavourings in favour of the real deal.
