Brooke Burghley Baking Book

Celebrities including Joanna Lumley, Jo Brand and Rick Stein share their favourite recipes and baking tips.

The Brooke Burghley Baking Book, complete with celebrity recipes and baking tips will be available to download soon.

Famous contributors include Rick Stein with his sinfully delicious sunken chocolate cake (not a fish in sight), Jo Brand, who shares her favourite sticky date cake, and Joanna Lumley, with a typically classy treat – a lemon cake with an Earl Grey twist. There are also top tips from Gino D’Acampo on how to avoid a soggy meringue, and one unexpected piece of advice from Brooke Ambassador, journalist and newscaster, Alastair Stewart (hint: it involves ice and ovens).

The book also includes winning carrot cake recipes from the Brooke Burghley Bake Off, which took place at Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials on 3 September. Star of Great British Bake Off 2015, Ugne Bubnaityte, judged the competition and awarded a prize to Michelle Knott from Melton Mowbray for her Olympic Equestrian inspired cake.

The Bake Off star said:

“As well as baking, I also love horses and being involved in the Burghley Bake Off and this book has brought both my passions together. Horses in the UK have so much, and the animals Brooke helps have so little. Brooke helps horses, donkeys and mules who need it the most.”
