Item Details

Free to Eat Sweets! The number of people with food allergies is skyrocketing, leaving puzzled cooks and anxious parents eager to find recipes for "normal" foods that are both safe and delicious. The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook features 100 tried-and-true recipes that are completely free of all ingredients responsible for 90 percent of food allergies, sparing bakers the all-too-common frustration of having to make unsatisfactory substitutions or rework recipes entirely. To make things even easier, energized and empathetic mom Cybele Pascal demystifies alternative foodstuffs and offers an insider's advice about choosing safe products and sources for buying them. As the head baker for a food-allergic family, food writer Pascal shares her most in-demand treats and how to make them work without allergenic ingredients. Her collection includes a delightfully familiar array of sweets and savory goodies that are no longer off-limits, from Glazed Vanilla Scones , Cinnamon Rolls , and Lemon-Lime Squares to Chocolate Fudge Brownies , Red Velvet Cake , and every kid's favorite: Pizza . In addition to being a lifeline for people with food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances, these entirely vegan recipes are perfect for anyone looking to avoid artificial and refined ingredients, and those interested in baking with healthful new gluten-free flours such as quinoa, sorghum, and amaranth. Best of all, Pascal has fine-tuned each recipe to please the palates of the most exacting critics: her young sons. Lennon and Monte like these tasty treats even better than their traditional counterparts, and you will too!

This is my go-to book for baking! I have not yet met a recipe i didn't like. I will usually substitute Guar Gum for Xanthan Gum as my son does not like the taste of Xanthan and occasionally substitute other flour blends if i have them around, but otherwise just follow the recipe. I found this book at the library and quickly decided that i needed to have it around all the time.

This is the first recipe for a vegan cracker that I have found (Motza made from potatoe flour and ground flaxseeds).

I have checked out so many gluten-free cookbooks from OPL and haven't found anything that comes remotely close to producing the results that Pascal's book does. Everything I bake, even when I make minor substitutions, has been absolutely wonderful. It was such a great find I bought a copy to keep myself ... and that's really something!

while it is lacking in eggs and milk... it has a wide variety of other things I'm allergic to... like rice and potatoes. bummer.

A wide variety of recipes but very specific and specialized ingredients that force us to go to specialty/natural food stores.
