The BEST vegan recipe book for sure!
on 9 November 2015
This book is probably the best baking book I've ever bought. For someone who has allergies to eggs, and who knows several people with dairy tolerances, it is marvellous to find so many delicious recipes to try in just one book, that are all safe. All the recipes are presented so well with pictures and cool writing and are so enticing. My overall favourite is the victoria sponge recipe, it's sooo scrummy, holds together so well, and always turns out to perfection. My family and friends absolutely love it, and many have said that they would never have guessed it didn't have egg in! Time and time again I am being asked to bake it again! It also works well with icing over the top :-) However, I also like the other recipes, in particular the blueberry crumble muffin recipe which I must admit, I have adapted to use raspberries instead, and have left out the almonds as I'm allergic, is sooo yummm. I have baked these many times now and I've had lots of lovely comments of appreciation come back! And also the blueberry lemon loaf cake is scrummy! There are some interesting and different recipes too which I have tried, like the lemon cheesecake cupcakes, which also seemed to go down rather well. The other thing I love about this book is the section on icings and spreads ~ there are different recipes for different types of toppings including buttercream ones, and they always turn out so well, and the methods are much better than recipes I used to use. I really can't recommend this book highly enough! Buy it! You really won't be disappointed! :-)
