Great free from baking, 4 April 2010
I have tried baking without conventional ingredients previously, but this book really delivers on removing all possible irritants. If you're looking for a recipe book that genuinely doesn't use gluten and avoids dairy, eggs and even sugar in many of the recipes then this is brilliant. The only downsides of the cake recipes are that they are in cups rather than weight and also they are designed to make a 9 inch 3 layer cake, which is absolutely huge, and often too big for a domestic oven. They do suggest using cupcakes instead but even their cupcake size is larger than a UK one (this is an American book). If you want to try these then I recommend doing a test of a quarter of the mixture, which will make about 15-18 cupcakes. Also, beware of the sugar free icing as it is still incredibly sweet - try reducing the agave in it. Overall fantastic and so nice to find something that gives a real alternative to conventional baking.
