2.0 out of 5 stars Only tried one recipie so far, but thanks Erin for doing this book!, August 24, 2011
This review is from: BabyCakes Covers the Classics: Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes from Donuts to Snickerdoodles (Hardcover)
My son can not have gluten, dairy, eggs or soy an it is so refreshing to have a cookbook where I do not have to substitute anything and play mad scientist! Many people seem very harsh about the cost or the amount of ingredients but this gal experimented in the kitchen and that's what made the confections taste good, it's still more cost effective than buying these types of treats. So far I have only made the chocolate glaze, I dipped chocolate cup cakes that I made with the GF chocolate bobs redmil cake mix. I used ground flax seed and water in place of the eggs and so delicious unsweetend coconut milk instead of cows milk. I also added a few trader joes chocolate chips to each cupcake. The chocolate chips have some soy lecithin in them but my son can have that. These turned out decadent and beautiful. You could use half the salt the recipie calls for but it was still amazing! Everyone who tried them said they were the best cupcakes ever and the audience had no food allergies!

Thanks Erin! I will update my review after I make some donuts and cake!

I updated this review after trying more recipes. way better recipes online! now only 2 stars

I haven't read this book yet, but if it calls for a lot of oil it might be compensating for a lack of butter, eggs, etc. found in traditional recipes. If you compare the recipe to a traditional version you might find the overlap and differences helpful in adjusting it to suit your needs :-)

Have you made anything besides the glaze yet? I am curious to see what you think about the actual baking recipes.
