Discover delicious delights of baking with a Scandilicious flair...
Scandinavian baking is amongst the best in the world and is deeply ingrained in nordic culture and part of their heritage, identity and well being. Entire festivals are dedicated to baking and real butter cakes are celebrated and enjoyed. Scandinavians believe there is nothing better than baking ones own bread, favourite cardamon buns or christmas biscuits, all delicious delights to share.
Following on from the success of Signe Johansen's first book, Secrets of Scandinavian Cooking... Scandilicious, she shares both traditional and modern baked treats, all mouthwateringly good, the only problem is you won't know which one to try first! Recipes such as moreish musli bread hot from the oven, cheese, sage and pumpkin muffins, packing a real flavour punch and tasty upside down blueberry cake or redcurrant marzipan tart are truly irresistable and perfect for entertaining.
Which ever recipe you choose to try first, whether you prefer savoury or sweet each recipe is easy to follow and the photography of the food is beautifully photographed and tempting...

Reviews of Scandilicious Baking
“Signe Johansen celebrates the gloriously flavourful world of Scandinavian baking… The straightforward and honest recipes, full of warming spices and feel-good grains, are enhanced by mouthwatering photography – Ms Johansen’s enthusiasm and passion for hearty, comforting Scandinavian fare shines through.”
Delicious, Book of the Month
“Signe’s second book maintains the fjord-fresh Scandinavian tastes of Scandilicious, with traditional and modern ideas. Her use of grains such as spelt and barley adds texture and flavour to more healthy baking.”
BBC Good Food
“Bakers sick of being assulted by frosting frou-frou and cutesy cakes every time they open a book will delight in Sig’s earthy recipes… she’s clever and creative.”
“Full of flavours and clever ideas.”
Alice Hart, Saga Magazine
“In a year crowded with baking books, this collection stands out. Johansen, from Norway, has the two qualities you want in a baker: flawless taste and rigorous technique. Her oat cookies are the best I’ve ever made, and sticky cinamon bun-cake, with a suspicion of cardamom, is the stuff of Nordic dreams… Scandilicious indeed.”
Bee Wilson, Sunday Times Books of the Year
“Perfect for seasoned bakers… these are chic updates on the usual Christmas bakes.”
