While this cookbook doesn't boast hundreds of recipes, the recipes it does have are so rich and decadent, and offer something different from the other vegan baking books out there. I have several, and I count this one as a great addition; it's not simply more of the same.
Here are a few of the things I love about this book:
* It's beautiful! There are photos of just about every recipe.
* Measurements are given both in grams as well as cups/spoons.
* The chart at the front of the book giving ingredient type and brand equivalents for US and UK bakers.
* A list of UK stockists at the back of the book.
* A blend of English and American recipes. (Jaffa Cakes and Jammy Dodgers...doesn't get much more English than that.)
* It doesn't rely heavily on egg replacer.
Thus far I've made the Lemon Cheesecake Cupcakes, Chocolate Cake (adapted from the Turkish Delight Cake), and Victoria Sponge. Victoria Sponge is a cake I'd not yet had any luck with making vegan. It turned out fantastic. I used the cream cheese icing, and everyone who had it loved it.
Here are a few tips/points to consider with this book:
-Most of the recipes call for self-raising flour. I never bother keeping this on hand. Instead, I substitute. For every 1 cup of self-raising, use 1 cup of regular flour + 1 teaspoon baking powder + ¼ teaspoon salt (this is why the recipes do not call for salt).Read more ›
So easy to follow (I am a complete novice and I haven't gone wrong yet!) and all the ingredients are easy to purchase in any normal supermarket.
So far I have made vanilla & mint choc chip cupcakes, blueberry & lemon loaf and Victoria sponge.
All are gorgeous! Can't wait to start on muffins and cookies!
Buy this book! It's simply amazing!
The recipes are easy to follow and don't require loads of specialist ingredients, you've probably got most of it in your cupboards already.
I've only had the book a week and already blitzed through most of the cupcake recipes, one muffin and the lemon slice.
I love having this much cake back in my life.
even 10 year old granddaughter made some and got 2nd place in village fete
Yesterday I made the Victoria sponge, the texture was light and fluffy and it tasted just as good (if not better) as any other cake made with eggs and butter. My search for the perfect eggless cake has ended and I intend to work my way through most of these recipes. I am looking forward to the second edition
Tip - If you do not intend to decorate your cakes with buttercream and icings then add more sugar to your cake batter.
I have tried lots of recipes, but these are by far the simplest and Best gluten free vegan recipes i have ever tried!
You must buy this book! It really is Amazing.
Everything in it looked insanely good, and even my wary family members were intrigued to try whatever I planned on cooking up. I made my first bake (the blueberry and lemon loaf cake) yesterday and it went down a treat. Firstly, it was so quick and easy to make, it was kind of ridiculous. Secondly, everyone loved the taste. One person said that it could've done with being a bit sweeter, but they've got a very sugary-tooth! Everyone else thought it was wonderful and incredibly moist (no dry sponge here!); and with the lemon glaze on top it was just finger-licking good.
I'm really looking forward to trying all of the other recipes and seeing how they go down. No doubt this will become a staple baking book in my kitchen!
(One thing to note, is that for the above recipe the book said to put the cake in at 180C (so 160C fan) for 30-35 minutes. However, at 160C fan, I found I had to keep it in there for about 50-55 minutes. It came out beautifully blond, light and airy; so just be aware that times may vary depending on your oven etc.)
