Who’s the author? Benjamina Ebuehi is a cook, food stylist, author and baking columnist who appeared on The Great British Bake Off in 2016. She has since pursued her passion for all things food and baking, creating content for media including BBC Good Food, Waitrose Weekend and Guardian Feast, as well as working with a number of brands ranging from Sainsbury’s to Anthropologie.

Benjamina is an ambassador for the social enterprise Luminary Bakery and co-founded The Sister Table with her sister Bonita, hosting pop-up brunches and supper clubs for women across London. Her food blog, Carrot & Crumb, was a finalist in the 2019 Saveur Blog Awards. Benjamina’s previous cookbooks include The New Way to Cake and A Good Day to Bake.

What’s it about? With her third book, Benjamina showcases 70 simple recipes for all your baking- and dessert-related needs. Being the designated ‘dessert person’ for any event – big or small – is often met with panic, but Benjamina is here to show you how to create puddings, bakes, and sweet centrepieces with that all-important wow factor all year round.

From one-dish recipes to desserts that are easy to transport, puds for feeding a table of four to fuss-free recipes to please a crowd, I’ll Bring Dessert is the ultimate bible for all things sophisticated and sweet.

With chapters covering Something Fruity, Something Chocolatey, Something Creamy, Something Nutty, and Something on the Side, you’re guaranteed to have the perfect dessert at your fingertips as each chapter includes a mix of hot and cold desserts, vegan and gluten-free recipes.

There are recipes that can be made in advance, as well as plenty of tips on how to transport your desserts and assemble or finish them later. From comforting fruit pies to indulgent cakes, there are recipes for when you want to really push the boat out and others suited to a more relaxed gathering. With this gorgeous book, no matter what the occasion, you’ll find yourself offering to whip up a brilliant dessert without breaking a sweat.
