Learn to bake with Britain's favourite women's fiction author Marian Keyes, in her startlingly honest cook-book Saved by Cake.

Saved by Cake gives an extremely honest account of Marian Keyes' battle with depression, and how baking has helped her.

A complete novice in the kitchen, Marian decided to bake a cake for a friend and that was it - she realised that baking was what she needed to do in order to get her through each day. And so she baked, and she wrote her recipes down, and little by little the depression started to lift, along with her sponges...

With chapters on cupcakes, cheesecakes, meringues and macaroons, chocolate cakes, fruit cakes and favourite classics, Marian's recipes are aimed firmly at beginner bakers, offering hints and tips to help along the way.

From her Consistently Reliable Cupcakes and Very Chocolately Macaroons, to the ease of her Fridge-set Honeycomb Cheesecake, you will want to have a go at making all of Marian's recipes. The shoe and handbag biscuits particularly. Very covetable. Very Marian.

Never patronising, always honest and witty, accessible and full of fun, the bakes and cakes that Marian serves up in this cookbook will put a smile on your face and make you happy.

'Medically speaking, there is no such thing as a nervous breakdown. Which is very annoying to discover when you're right in the middle of one. Whatever was going on with me, I had to wait it out. I had to find ways of passing the time until I was restored to myself again. So I baked a cake - a chocolate cheesecake, as it happens. And I enjoyed making it so much that I baked another. And another' Marian Keyes

I love Marian Keyes and I love baking - a winner off the bat for me. But never before have I sat down and read a cookbook cover-to-cover. Even if you never make any of the recipes, this book is worth picking up. (But the recipes are awesome too.) Vollständige Rezension lesen

Über den Autor (2012)

Marian Keyes is a phenomenon. The multimillion copy, internationally bestselling author of some of the most widely loved, genre-defying novels of the past thirty years - including Watermelon, Anybody Out There and Grown Ups - has millions of fans around the world. They are irresistibly drawn by her warmth and wit, fearless honesty, relatable characters and relationships, and sheer storytelling magic. Not only has Marian inspired and entertained countless readers, but also the next generation of writers too.

As a beloved author herself, Marian is a passionate champion of storytellers everywhere, playing an active role in encouraging new voices. She has been the chair of judges for the Comedy Women in Print prize, a sponsor of the Curtis Brown Creative Novel-Writing Scholarship, and most recently ran her own hugely popular Instagram Live series bringing free creative writing courses to thousands of viewers. Marian also uses her position to raise some of the most challenging issues of our time, including addiction, immigration, depression, domestic violence and the Repeal the Eighth campaign.

Both critically acclaimed and commercially unstoppable, Marian's fifteenth novel, Again, Rachel - the sequel to her groundbreaking novel Rachel's Holiday - was a No. 1 bestseller in four global territories- UK, Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand, and a No. 1 Audible bestseller.

In addition to her novels, Marian has written two collections of journalism, one of which was used as the inspiration of her hit BBC Radio 4 show Between Ourselves. She also co-presents the popular BBC Radio 4 podcast Now You're Asking with actress Tara Flynn, which has been praised by Guardian for its' warm-hearted joy'.

Marian is based in Don Laoghaire, Dublin.
