5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Flying Apron Bakery, November 25, 2009
This review is from: Flying Apron's Gluten-Free & Vegan Baking Book (Paperback)
I have enjoyed Flying Apron Bakery's cupcakes with my children for years. The cookbook includes all of our favorite recipes, most notably, the cake and frosting recipes used for cupcakes! I will be making these regularly! It is a pleasure to have a cookbook that uses such healthful ingredients. Thank you!

So far, I have made the pumpkin pie (with brown rice crust) two times, both times a big hit. If you're not used to Flying Apron pastry, it is quite different from regular wheat-based pie dough. The texture is very crumbly, like a crumbly shortbread, and very grainy compared to conventional pastry. However, it is delicious. I was not enthralled at first taste, but I love it and so do my kids. This last time I made the pie crust, I had extra and made a little apple tart out of it (topped a circle of dough with chopped apple tossed with maple syrup and honey, and then topped that with another circle of dough which I crimped and baked along with the pumpking pie). The apple tart came out great, and I'm definitely going to be making this very easy crust to put together my own impromptu tarts for breakfast or desserts.

Tonight I made the dark chocolate cake as cupcakes and the german maple frosting. Tomorrow, I'll be serving these german chocolate cupcakes for my nephew's birthday. Beautiful!

One confession: I have a sweet tooth and have added extra sugar to both the pumpkin pie and to cupcakes. If things aren't sweet enough for you, this is an easy change to make to any recipe.

I am grateful for a commercial baker like Flying Apron who cares so much about customers that she is willing to publish her recipes. Thanks again!!
