Book Review: One More Slice


One More Slice is the second book from author Leila Lindholm. Her first book, Piece of Cake, was all about baking. Her new book is concentrated on bread, pancakes, waffles and pizza and pasta from scratch. There are also a few sweets such as brownies, blondies and ice cream.

I enjoyed the rustic feel of this book. It’s printed in matte rather than all shiny and glossy. There are plenty of photos to accompany each dish. The recipes are all clearly laid out and easy to follow. I’ve made three recipes from the book already and I’m definitely feeling brave enough now to try making my own pizza dough or even some bread (which if you know me is my nemesis)!

Blueberry & Blackberry Crumble

Poppy Blueberry & Blackberry Crumble


I made a Poppy Blueberry Crumble which was fantastic. Summertime is making me crave more fruit and this really hit the spot. I don’t typically like oats in my crumble as it can get quite soggy but the topping on this was lovely and crisp.
Lime & Coconut Blondies
Lime & Coconut Blondies

These were supposed to be Lime and Coconut Blondies adapted from Leila’s recipe for Raspberry Blondies. They tasted more like cake than a Blondie but they were still moist and delicious.
In the book there is a recipe for brownies and then there are eight recipes for brownie variations using the first basic recipe. The same format is used for pizzas, ravioli and baguettes. In the case of pizza you can make double the portion of dough and save half for later. This is pretty useful for me since I don’t have a lot of time on weeknights but I still want to cook.
I also made the Sage Sauce with Vanilla with spaghetti for dinner one night which was nice and tasty. I really enjoyed this book and I’ll be using it again for dinner inspiration.

  6. My favourite crumble is one with ingredients sourced from my parents' garden in Somerset as homegrown fruit tastes so much better – either apple and blackcurrant or pear and ginger – delicious!

  10. Apple crumble is the best, nothing else comes close in my eyes! However, I will always have a 'bit on the side' with rhubarb crumble. I adore rhubarb!

    I think Apple crumble will always be my favourite… Best with a little cinnamon in the crumble and slivered toasted almonds on the top! Served with Oatly cream or Alpro Vanilla Custard!!

  18. and finally the retweet (@pavghuman)!

  19. I love crumble but dont get to eat it that often an i'm allergic to apples… so my fave is summer berry crumble! PS also a follower @tashkahn

  20. I adore the classic Apple Crumble. My mother-in-law makes the perfect combo of soft apple & crunchy topping. I've yet to master the right topping no matter how much I try.

    Regardless of the competition (though it would be fab to get the book) I think everyone should know how great Rhubarb, marmalade and ginger crumble is. My mum made it loads when I was little and I still love it – don't get it enough these days. mmmmmm

  22. lauloubakes

    A new combination I tried the other day – mango and banana crumble with some dessicated coconut in the topping – amazing!

    I love apple and blackberry crumble with fresh clotted cream or homemade vanilla custard. Yummy!

    My favourite crumble would probably be peach or nectarine crumble. When the fruit are in season and they are nice and ripe yum yum
