Book Review: Tanya Bakes by YouTuber Tanya Burr

It's that time of year when, not only am I buying, buying, buying for friends and family's Christmas presents but I'm also, rather sneakily, adding ideas to my own wish list, leaving a trails of hints which get more and more obvious as time goes by! 

So when I came across Tanya Bakes (by super-YouTuber Tanya Burr) it made me think that I should share it with you in time for you to add it to your Christmas list!

Tanya Bakes, as you can imagine, is choc-full (pardon the pun!) of gorgeous photography, perfect staging and clever words but is it worth the cover price? On a word, yes!! Every page exudes warmth, gentle humour and that zeitgeisty word hygge (the Danish word for the ritual of enjoying simple pleasures).

The book is spilt into 8 chapters, Cookies and Biscuits, Muffins, Cupcakes & Tray bakes, Cakes & Loaves, Puddings, Pastry, Bread, Brunch and Special Occasions.


And, oh my goodness, this book contains recipe after recipe that you will want to dive straight into the moment you turn each crisp, glossy page. With names like the Ultimate Celebration Cake, Chocolate Orange Cheesecake, Kate's Mum's Lemon Slices and Salted Caramel Brownies, your only problem will be which to tackle first.


Tanya's little preambles will boost your confidence no end, making you feel as though you too can conquer the world! She has a knack of spanning the bridge between celebrity and ordinary girl-next door.

{It should definitely be mentioned that there are mistakes in this book but Penguin here are at pains to say that these aren't a reflection on Tanya and offer to replace any copies that contain errors.}

Quintessential English Cottage Tour

Look at this gorgeous home that I stumbled across. It's a quintessentially English cottage. And it's for sale!! A snip (!!) at £575,000....

Take a tour and I dare you not to fall in love....

The thatched roof?

The beams!

The gorgeouss little attic bedrooms?

And a garden that overlooks a stunning church...

See? Those dreams of gorgeous English cottages really can come true!
