I don't always use the same flours the author suggests, but things usually turn out any way. I like the different tastes different flours add. Not the same as gluten-baking, but not bad, just different. Overall, recipes seem to be pretty forgiving to alterations.
Now imagine these treats prepared without eggs, or butter, or milk, or cream. "Not too challenging" you are probably imagining.
But then imagine preparing these same treats without wheat or other gluten-containing flours. Now that's a formidable task, eh? But with THE ALLERGY-FREE COOK BAKES CAKES AND COOKIES by Laurie Sadowski as your guide, you can pull it off and pull it off brilliantly!
Excellent vegan cookbooks abound and I have been collecting them for over four decades. But for years I have been afflicted with food allergies and Celiac Disease (an allergy to gluten) and I've been searching specifically for allergen-free vegan baking books. The search has been daunting, especially when it comes down to baking without gluten, wheat, dairy and eggs. But lately more and more gifted cooks and talented bakers are bringing forth amazingly successful gluten-free, allergen-free, vegan recipe collections. And I love collecting them, studying them, testing recipes from them...and eating from them! Without a doubt THE ALLERGY-FREE COOK BAKES CAKES AND COOKIES is one of the best of the best!
I think every kitchen, allergen-free vegan or not, would benefit from having this creative book on the cookbook shelf.Read more ›
As someone who was an avid baker before going gluten free & dairy free, this cookbook was a revelation. In the 4 years since going GF/DF, I have struggled to find a baking cookbook that offered me recipes that produced great results every time. This cookbook does just that and more. I have found that the author provides a wonderfully diverse range of recipes from cakes, cupcakes to even bars. The flavor profiles are appealing and unique but provide that comfort food feel to them. Many are very nostalgic recipes; for instance the Pecan Pie Squares with Pecan Crumble remind me of a holiday recipe that I grew up with.
I have found myself wanting to try as many recipes as possible from this cookbook. Some of my successes have included: Orange-Olive Oil Cake, Banana-Chai Cupcakes, French Toast Cupcakes (a personal favorite), and Mini Triple-Coconut Cupcakes. Each one has been a huge success with GF/DF consumers and non-GF/DF consumers alike. They just taste good! I have found that even though the ingredients might seem challenging, the recipes themselves are very user friendly and many are simple to make. In addition, knowing that the ingredients are wholesome and vegan makes them truly healthful indulgences.
If you are aren't as familiar with many alternative flours and vegan products, the author provides excellent resources & explanations for the reader. I especially loved the lists of substitutes and baking tips and tricks.
Overall, I can't say enough great things about this cookbook. It's a new favorite in my household, and I can't wait to continue to make great recipes to share with everyone. You can read more about my review with pictures on my site: [...]
