Comfort: Delicious Bakes and Family Treats

Comfort: Delicious Bakes and Family Treats


Simply delicious bakes for every day of the year.

'I'm so excited about this beautiful book. Delicious, cozy recipes that are pure comfort on a plate’ Fearne Cotton

Secondary school teacher and pub landlord's daughter Candice Brown stole the show with her amazing bakes and weekly lipstick change in The Great British Bake Off tent of 2016.

This year the Sunday Times columnist will be bringing out her first cookbook - all about home comforts. These are the recipes Candice learned to bake from her nan and mum, recipes close to her heart, that should be served up as a big generous slice - and preferably on a vintage plate if you have one.

Candice's recipes are easy to make, no nonsense and hearty. She has a recipe up her sleeve for every occasion - for baking with kids, birthday parties for all ages, Christmas, afternoon tea, quick savoury bakes for weeknights and fancier recipes for weekends.

About the author

Candice Brown

Candice Brown is the winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016, a cookbook author, Sunday Times columnist, and pub landlady.

Born in North London, Candice grew up in the pubs that her parents ran - and that she famously immortalized in gingerbread for her most talked about showstopper - always chipping in when needed, be it pulling pints or mopping floors.

Since her GBBO victory, Candice has taken on numerous new challenges including live food festival demonstrations, TV appearances, virtual cookalongs, and supporting charities that are close to her heart.

In December 2018 Candice, together with her brother Ben, took the keys to The Greenman Pub in Eversholt.
