Having tried several food allergy cookbooks and being an avid baking family, this is BY FAR THE BEST food allergy baking book available. I simply LOVE the Food Allergy Mama and am thankful she wrote this book!!! Not only does it have fantastic recpies but also great product and technique suggestions for baking without eggs/nuts/dairy. By the way, her blog is a wonderful resource as well.
The first recipe from the book I tried was the yellow birthday cake. My son is only 2 1/2 but already is aware that he can't have everything that the rest of his family can due to his food allergies. So, for my husband's birthday, he asked me to bake a cake my son could eat also. I presented my family with a three layer cake from this book that looked like the "regular" version...and I literally was jumping up and down when we all tasted the results. My son kept saying, "I have daddy's cake! Can I have more?" The cake was moist, rose like a regular cake, and was truly delicious. Other favorites: oatmeal raisin cookies (even better than my old version), whole wheat oatmeal pancakes (the best pancakes I've ever made AND they're healthy!!!), and muffins. Pretty much everything we've tried is super.
Having a child with egg and nut allergies, our world has been turned upside down. This book has brought a lot of joy back to my life as a mommy who loves to bake for her kids. Thank you, for helping me let my child experience many of the fun kid moments like yummy birthday cake and homemade cookies hot out of the oven! I can't say enough good things about this book.
