Martha Collison amazed the judges and viewers alike as the youngest ever contestant in the 2014 series of The Great British Bake Off.
Martha shone with her Showstopper skills and extraordinary ‘Technical Challenge’ knowledge. Here in her first book, she offers a brilliant new approach to baking – a way to master baking, while adding ‘twists’ to recipes to make contemporary bakes that everyone will love.
With clever illustrations and know-how throughout, alongside beautiful photography, Martha demonstrates how to take basic recipes and alter them into something new. Whether it’s a cake, a biscuit or even a pastry recipe, she shows how to alter the method, the balance of ingredients or the mixture of flavours to ensure exciting, magical bakes every time. Transform her Never-Fail Vanilla Cupcakes into Lemon Cheesecake Cupcakes, for example, or Caramel Macchiatos. Try Pink Grapefruit Drizzle Cake, instead of the usual Lemon, and then mix it up with Gin & Tonic flavours. Or take Macarons to a whole new level and try Peach Bellini Macarons or even a Macaron Shell Ice-Cream.
Fresh, innovative and genuinely exciting, Twist looks set to make adventurous bakers of us all.

About the Author
Martha Collison is the youngest ever baker on The Great British Bake Off – she made it all the way to the quarter finals whilst studying for her AS Levels! Martha is a self-taught baker who started cooking at the age of eight – the result of her brave parents letting her loose in the kitchen and enjoying the (sometimes mixed) results. Since then her baking repertoire has grown no end, and she now balances studying part-time for her A Levels with writing and testing recipes for various purposes, including a monthly column in Waitrose Weekend as well as her own blog. She loves spending time with her family, and is passionate about helping with charitable campaigns including
Absolutely love this cookbook! I made Martha’s basic brownie recipe recently and received so many compliments. I highly recommend. As a note, the measurements are all in grams and there are some ingredients that appear to be unusual. Many of these are simply called something different in the united states: example double cream = heavy cream. I suggest googling any ingredients that you aren’t familiar with as you may have most of these in your kitchen as well as purchasing a scale for measuring in grams as grams does not convert easily to cups (one unit measures volume, one mass). The only ingredient I found throughout the recipes that might be slightly less common in a US household or grocery store are digestive biscuits, which can be purchased on Amazon for around $8. The cookbook itself is incredibly well made, easy to follow and has a lot of great information on the science behind each bake.
