The book - 'Loaves, fishes and more...' - features 70 recipes from church leaders and members of the public. For every copy sold a donation will be made to Christian Aid.

Dr Williams's recipe comes in the 'Teatime Treats' section and he has this tip for his biscuits: "Great fun can be had by making the biscuits into Gingerbread Men and decorating for Christmas!"

The not-for-profit book is endorsed by TV celebrity chef Kevin Woodford, who has appeared on shows including Ready Steady Cook and Planet Cook.
