Baking is a great way to bring friends and family together. After all – who doesn’t get excited when looking at a tray of freshly baked cookies? Unfortunately, not every cookie, cake or pie recipe is going to be a good fit for everyone. Some people might prefer a lower fat baked good, while others need their goodies to be gluten free. You can stock your kitchen with books on every single subject to make sure that you have your bases covered, or you can pick up a copy of Let Them Eat Cake: Classic, Decadent Desserts with Vegan, Gluten-Free & Healthy Variations, which really does offer something for everyone.
This cookbook starts out with recipes for delicious, classic desserts made with traditional, full-fat ingredients. The recipes cover a wide range of categories and include coconut cream pie, molten chocolate cakes and all kinds of cookies, including some twists on classic girl scout recipes. Â Each recipe is followed by three variations that offer easy ways to tweak a recipe for various dietary needs, allowing you to easily make that dessert vegan, gluten-free or lower in fat. The same three variations are listed for every recipe, which will really increase the number of recipes you can access in your cookbook collection – without taking up any additional shelf space!
The recipes are clearly written and easy to follow. The variations given are also easy to apply to the original recipes, and the techniques used will allow you to adapt other favorite recipes on your own. The book is also loaded with beautiful, full-color photos that will show you exactly what you have to look forward to before you start baking.
