    5 natural and wholesome stars to The Natural Baker! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 I’ve been fortunate to review some stellar cookbooks lately, and The Natural Baker is no exception. It includes a nice mix of whole foods-based (not processed) recipes, some of which are vegan, more are vegetarian, and some that have meat. All of the recipes are pictured in full color photos, and many are two page spreads! The photos are on a bright white, clean background (the focus was on the naturally colorful food), and they have 5 natural and wholesome stars to The Natural Baker! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 I’ve been fortunate to review some stellar cookbooks lately, and The Natural Baker is no exception.

All of the recipes are pictured in full color photos, and many are two page spreads! The photos are on a bright white, clean background (the focus was on the naturally colorful food), and they have an almost bucolic appearance, which I loved. After going through the basics of wholesome baking, the book has sections for everything from breakfasts to desserts. It includes much more than just muffins and breads. The ingredients and steps are presented in a clear and concise manner. I found myself bookmarking most every page, so here’s the short list of what I’m eager to try soon: ~Almond Apple Porridge (baked oatmeal): We eat baked oatmeal regularly because it’s easy to prep in advance, I can stuff it full of fruit, and it’s filling. This one looks like a fresh twist. ~Green Pea, Fava, and Feta Cakes: Oh my! ~Feta, Olive, and Rosemary Soda Rolls: Please don’t notice the feta theme here. I promise I’m not obsessed with feta or anything. ~Polenta, Kefir, Raspberry, Lemon, Coconut Cake with a Rasperry Yogurt Ripple: This sounds like a doozy, but the recipe looks easy enough to follow, and there’s kefir in it! In a cake! ~Pistachio Cranberry Cardamom Sables ~Tahini Honey Tiffin with Figs: These look like brownies! With tahini! ~Coconut Oat Biscuits (Cookies) ~Pumpkin Spinach Ricotta Pie: YES! ~Millet Sweet Potato Kale Cakes with a Sunflower Seed Crust ~Plum Blackberry Blueberry Crumble with Lemon Syrup So, some of the above may sound “fancy schmancy,” but the recipes seem straight forward and not as strenuous as baking can typically be. I will make sure to update once I’ve tried a few things. Overall, I’m impressed with this cookbook’s presentation and content, and super excited to try some of these adventurous and delicious-sounding recipes! Thank you to Henrietta Inman, Jacqui Small/Quarto, and Netgalley for the ARC. The Natural Baker is available now!

    Fab baking book. The introduction bit is a bit shorter and less detailed than I expected, as I am not an experienced baker I'd love to read some more about basics. The pictures are really amazing. Caused me instant desire to try this recipes. There are some really exciting recipes, like Caramelized Red Onion Cheddar and Parsley Scones, Feta Olive and Rosemary bread rolls, Peanut, Rye and Raisin Brownie, fig banana dark chocolate cake, etc. I really liked the cake section, you could easily start Fab baking book.

I couldn't believe my eyes, after seeing a Gozleme recipe, which is a traditional Turkish pastry made in villages. The recipes are detailed and need many ingredients, but I think this is only normal as most of them are quite interesting combination of mouth-watering ingredients... Can't wait to try some of those.

    I love cookbooks that give alternatives when you have allergies or intolerances. And Henrietta Inman encourages you to adapt her recipes with local and seasonal products. It's a really good cookbook, I want to try a LOT of recipes, like Feta, olive and rosemary soda bread roll (yummy) or Honey and walnut tart with wholegrain oat pastry. The pictures are gorgeous. It's a beautiful and practical book to have in your kitchen! Thanks to the publisher for my e-copy through NetGalley. I love cookbooks that give alternatives when you have allergies or intolerances.

    I have gone through my fair share of recipe books recently. It is not that I immediately set to work on trying to recreate the magic so tastefully depicted within the pages but I still have a partiality for them. They are for those imaginary future instances when I would dazzle those even more imaginary visitors with delicacies. This particular book though puts something more attainable within my reach.

It is not that I immediately set to work on trying to recreate the magic so tastefully depicted within the pages but I still have a partiality for them. They are for those imaginary future instances when I would dazzle those even more imaginary visitors with delicacies. This particular book though puts something more attainable within my reach. This is a book with baking recipes for different meals of the day with varying amounts of complexities and although I am a vegetarian, there are ample options provided for me. Most of the ingredients are basic but the combinations relatively unique. The pictures do need to be mentioned though a lot of painstaking effort seems to go into the photographs of food books of late. The presentation of each recipe with a few tidbits of information made it time spent reading this ARC enjoyable. It is the kind of book I would gift a baking enthusiast who wants to cook for the slightly out of ordinary flavours. For other unrelated reviews: www.superfluousreading.wordpress.com

The book has beautiful pictures, even some step by step pictures and good, easy, intriguing recipes. The recipes include some gluten-free, some refined sugar-free and some dairy-free feature wholesome ingredients. You'll find recipes using einkorn, emmer and spelt, which are ancient varieties of wheat so not perfect for gluten free but a good choice for those avoiding modern wheat. There are recipes with wholegrain rye flour which is lower in gluten than wheat and spelt. Recipes with coconut flour, almond flour, rice flour, oat flour and more for gluten-free choices. Honey, coconut sugar, and maple syrup are some of the alternative less processed sugars used. Wait. Don't let those ingredients scare you. I live 3 hours from the nearest Whole Foods and I can easily find these ingredients in my very rural area and they are just as tasty and easy to work with as wheat flour and refined white sugar. The recipes Ms Inman presents are the kind you want to try, not the hippie dippie things no one would ever what to eat. As with just about any Quarto cook book this is beautiful, useful and the kind of book you want to have on your bookshelf. Thank you Henrietta Inman, Quarto Publishing Group-jacqui small and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review.

    I learned so much from this book! I do my best to follow an all natural cooking style and I've never heard of einkorn and emmer (two ancient varieties of wheat) and I appreciated how the author described why things go into baking (science, but for the lay person). The baking tips & techniques were super helpful as well - it helps me to understand why ingredients go together for baking; and not many cook books that I've reviewed contain this information.

They could have been a bit more simplified for me, but maybe that would affect the recipe? Overall, a great resource to have!

    Stemming from the author’s Suffolk roots, using fresh farm ingredients and growing with experimentation, The Natural Baker cookbook was born. These recipes are designed to be used with fresh, natural ingredients without additives, preservatives, or colorings. In the brief introduction to the book, the author indicates that the chapters for the recipes are merely a guideline. She suggests that some of the breakfast recipes may work well at lunch and the desserts recipes may work for breakfast etc. Stemming from the author’s Suffolk roots, using fresh farm ingredients and growing with experimentation, The Natural Baker cookbook was born.

In the brief introduction to the book, the author indicates that the chapters for the recipes are merely a guideline. She suggests that some of the breakfast recipes may work well at lunch and the desserts recipes may work for breakfast etc. Encouraging adaptation, the author continues on to suggest creating the recipe as written the first time and then adapting it to your own tastes next time. Core Ingredients are also discussed in the introduction giving you the background on the various staples you will need and use. Next are Magic Ingredients, those that give an extra wow factor. Baking Tips and Techniques which are used throughout the book are also discussed along with Equipment and Storage/Freezing requirements. Recipes are split up into five categories: Breakfasts Breads & Crackers Cakes & Biscuits (Cookies) Lunches & Suppers Desserts & Puddings It’s recipe category also comes with its own introduction. This includes some tips and suggestions as well. Each of the recipes has a brief description, serving size, and some also offer variations. The author’s English roots were showing when I was reading one of the recipes that called for several “knobs“ of butter. My Canadian roots were showing when I did not understand how much a “knob” was. Thank goodness for Google. Each of the recipes is beautifully photographed. I think it is so important to know what the final product will look like once you’re done. While the recipes have several ingredients each, they do seem to be fairly straightforward. There are not a lot of “recipes in recipes” to complicate things. Some of the more complicated recipes also include step-by-step photographs to help. This could come in very useful if you’ve never made that kind of recipe before. Excellent Variety And Unique Recipes While you may have heard of the basic recipe before, the flavor combinations for many of these recipes are unique. There are many classic recipes with interesting ingredients included. If you can make it through this book without wanting to go directly to your mixer and start working on something new, you have much more willpower than I. There are too many beautifully created wonderfully flavorful recipes to be able to withstand the temptation. See the full review and the recipe for Black Seed Oatcakes at The RecipesNow! Reviews And Recipes Magazine. This review is written in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

    What I found interesting in this book is the fact that the cakes and bakes presented are actually good for you. Inman uses a lot of wholegrain and healthy ingredients, so that you can enjoy eating cake without worrying about the health effects of having too much sugar and fat. I don't worry too much about high sugar and fat content as we mostly cook from scratch in my household and we have cake in moderation. I tend to bake once or twice a week.

I don't worry too much about high sugar and fat content as we mostly cook from scratch in my household and we have cake in moderation. I tend to bake once or twice a week. But now I have a child, I do worry more about what goes in his body, especially since, like me, he has a massive sweet tooth and loves chocolate (I swear I haven't seen a toddler eating 80% dark chocolate before, but he does...). However, I do like the idea of eating more wholesome foods, and putting it in a bake is a brilliant idea. I'm particularly interested in trying the bacon and egg pies with scallions and tomato, the Gruyère gougères, the caramelised red onion and Cheddar scones and the grilled spinach gnocchi. Now I've realised I've just told you about my sweet tooth and all the recipes I've mentioned are savoury. I guess I just like good food! The photographs and design of the book are gorgeous, which is always nice. There is a photograph for every recipe - I really don't like when cooking books don't show you what the food should look like. The only "issue" for me is that some ingredients will be a bit difficult to find if you don't live in a big place. I'm in a rural area so I know I won't find some of the ingredients and will have to do swaps. But I guess that's to be expected with healthier foods that aren't too common. Note - thanks to NetGalley and Quarto for a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review. More reviews on my blog.

    Gorgeous cookbook, a feast for the eyes. The recipes are too time-intensive for my stage of life right now, but I love the idea behind this cookbook of using natural, less refined ingredients in baking.

    There are even more ingredients I haven't heard about while I'm currently on a wholefood lifestyle. I will say while I love every recipe has a picture shown and some including photographed steps, there aren't that many recipes I'm willing to try. This isn't for a beginner or a minimalist baker being that some of these steps/ingredients seem extensive and time consuming. If these were ingredients I currently have, like coconut/almond flour vs spelt four (which I don't) then it might be something There are even more ingredients I haven't heard about while I'm currently on a wholefood lifestyle.

    I received an ebook copy in exchange for a fair review. This is a really nice cookbook. The photos are beautiful and the recipes are fairly easy to follow. Although there are a few ingredients I think one might have to really search for, most are completely do-able. Lots of neat ideas and very interesting takes on favourites. I recommend taking a look if you want to broaden your baking horizons!

    The Natural Baker by Henrietta Inman is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late May. Very outdoorsy and vibrant, like an orchard's kitchen.  Each recipe reads as decadent, treacley with heft and many European flavors (the titles alone are very stacked) with chapters on breakfast items, breads, crackers, cakes, cookies, dinner, and desserts.  My personal favorite recipes are for bacon and egg pies with spring onions & tomato and  crumbly hazelnut & dark chocolate baci.

    I don't buy many baking cookbooks but this one was so beautiful, I couldn't resist. From the cover to the internal photos, it's a delight for the eyes even before the mouth starts to water! The recipes are unique and fire up your creative juices to have a go at something you've never tried before. Perhaps lavender pastry or carrot, beetroot, parsnip, and apricot cake? The fact it's not in the kitchen cupboard with my other cookbooks but on the coffee table speaks volumes. I don't buy many baking cookbooks but this one was so beautiful, I couldn't resist.

    I bought this on Amazon for 5 buck. I didn’t hate this but I can see why this was only 5$. This is by a British author so much of the terminology is a little foreign. There are a lot o& ingredients with almost every recipe, although there are also a lot of pictures I don’t think I would have bought this had it not been so cheap.

    I have mixed feelings about this book. First, the cons: 1. In order to use these recipes you need either a farm or money to shop at Whole Foods. 2. If you were to work your way through this book, you would need at least three different types of flour which will go bad because they're organic 3. There are so many ingredients I've never even heard of, which is a turn off for me. The pros: 1: the recipes, at their core, are open to alterations and experimentation 2: many recipes take the form of some kin I have mixed feelings about this book. First, the cons: 1.

Final verdict: I wouldn't buy this for myself because I probably wouldn't actually make anything from it. On the bright side, there are a few organic/natural mommies I know who might like it.

    The photography throughout this book was art in itself! The recipes were not only well-laid out with full-detail but all were healthy and work with fresh ingredients.

I look forward to trying a few of the recipes that I can source ingredients for, I did find that a number of the recipes had a long list of ingredients as well as multiple steps in the recipe, both of which would put me off trying much of the book. This is a great book for those who can easily access the myriad of flours and grains required, and for competent home cooks that enjoy making recipes with a. Number of steps, for example one boscuit recipes had five seperate components for a batch of biscuits, I would not bother spending so much time on such a recipe.
