The very best cakes are always the ones we bake with love at home.
Inspired by the best ingredients found in her native Northern California and her adopted home in England - from fresh-picked berries to peaches straight from the orchard - these 85 recipes for cakes, cookies, desserts and savoury treats showcase how seasonal local produce is the key to creative, memorable and delicious homemade bakes.
Be inspired by the Californian way of life with English classics that take on a west-coast twist, such as Brown Sugar Victoria Sponge, Chocolate Violet Babka Buns, Tahini Halva Brownies, and English Angel Cakes that are perfect for a birthday party. You'll also find Californian favourites reimagined with British flavours like Ras el Hanout Snickerdoodles, Coconut Pudding Cake and Black Tea and Poppy Seed Muffins. You'll even find the recipe for Prince Harry and Megan Markle's famous Lemon and Elderflower Wedding Cake.
