Lottie Bedlow was the stand-out star from Channel 4's The Great British Bake Off 2020 and taught herself to bake through trial and error. No stranger to the mishaps (and epic disasters) of homebaking, Lottie's signature sense of humour will see you through this delicious collection of sweet and savoury bakes.

From simple recipes to encourage even the most inexperienced bakers through to more ambitious centrepieces, the focus is always on great flavour. Each recipe highlights potential pitfalls, with notes on what to look out for and how to find a fix.
