Mani Niall has become famous for the beautiful yet indulgent desserts sold at his Los Angeles bakery. In Sweet & Natural Baking
, Niall explains how to make naturally sweetened treats using only whole grain flours. (Some are also low fat, but that's not a particular objective in this book.) Carefully detailed instructions should guide you to perfect results for baked desserts, including cookies, muffins, scones, pies and cakes. There are useful descriptions of ingredients to help anyone unfamiliar with using whole grains and sweeteners such as concentrated fruit juice and maple syrup in baking. Mouth-watering photos show why Danny DeVito, Roseanne, and rock groups have made Mani "baker to the stars."
