The sidebars of information on kitchen equipment were helpful.

I can confidently say that this is the only vegan baking book you'll ever need in your cooking/baking book library. I've tried quite a few of the recipes and they have turned out delicious. They definitely don't taste like the vegan baked goods you find in stores. WAY better. The textures are perfect, the recipes are flawless and the author's helpful hints, tips and write-ups make you feel like a baking pro. I have a bunch of vegan friends where I live and I'm definitely passing the word around about this book.

Thank you for finally putting out a fantastic recipe book that brings vegan baked goods to a whole new and delicious level.

I'm sure that the review above me with the one star meant to be 5 stars, considering their glowing review. :)

I, myself, am not a vegan, but my husband is. He loves his sweets and when he converted, that is what he missed the most. We found a vegan baked-goods stand at our farmer's market, but it gets pretty pricey very quickly. I am learning to prepare vegan more and more everyday, but baking was always a fail; until I got this book out of the library.

FINALLY!! We were both very pleased with the results. My husband because he loved the finished product, and was able to enjoy his treats again. Me, because I take pride in my cooking/baking and was finally able to make something I could be proud of! When friends come over, I dont tell them they are eating vegan treats until after the fact. They are all pleasantly shocked.

I had to buy the book. Worth every penny.

This is the baking cookbook that vegans have been waiting for!

Donna, an experienced vegan baker, has written and tested over 150 delicious savoury and sweet vegan baking recipes using healthy ingredients that will appeal to both vegan and non-vegan palates.

I have made quite a few recipes with great success! The recipes are well written and easy to follow. One of my favourites is Mocha Cake. Made with a combination of chocolate and coffee, this is one moist, decadent cake.

I really recommend this cookbook. It is just not just a vegan baking book, but also a guide to healthier baking for everyone. It surely should be added to the baking section of anyone`s cookbook collection.

I bought this book when it first came out and have been very pleased with the outcome of all the recipes that I have tried. Most people that hear "vegan baking" think dry and tasteless. And to be honest, some recipes that I have made BEFORE getting this book are just that. THESE recipes are FAR from that, and the ones that I have tried taste as good as any regular recipe, but are healthier for you, which is a bonus!

The author, Donna Diegel, adds a nice description to each new chapter. The tips and notes that go along with the recipes are very helpful and add some tidbits that you might not have known.

What I like the most about this book is the fact that Donna has added all kinds of breads, rolls and pastries to round out the collection. Also included are Strudels, Turnovers, Tarts and Galettes; all of which will make your mouth water and you will be anxious to try them all. They are easy to understand and just as easy to bake.

I recommend this book to everyone. Long time vegan cooks as well as beginners, and non-vegan bakers as well. If you aren't Vegan, and just want to try a healthier type of baking, this is the book for you, too!

This book is packed with great recipes. I am not vegan and sometimes substitute ingredients for the real thing, i.e. eggs, butter, milk, etc. Recipes are easy and delicious.

I have baked several recipes from this book and everyone was excellent. I checked it out of the library and am about to wear out my six weeks! So I am going to have to buy one, I have been vegan for awhile, but these are some of the best cakes and baked goods I have found. One gripe, no biscuit recipe... for that you have to go to [...]the book is flawless.
