What makes Bake Deliciously! Gluten and
Dairy Free Unique - Top Eleven Reasons

  1. Over 150 triple-tested baked recipes of favorite baked goods and most are completed in 5 or less steps.
  2. All recipes focus on whole, unprocessed flour mixes.
  3. Other gluten-free cookbooks use flour mixes of refined starches in the form of cornstarch, tapioca flour, sweet rice flour, arrowroot or potato starch in percentages as high as 60-75%! Starch is a necessary evil in a lot of gluten-free baking and recipes in this book were formulated with the goal of 25% or less refined starches. Some recipes in Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free are 100% whole grain.
  4. Over 50 pages of helpful information for the newly diagnosed such as:

  7. Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free contains 68 vegan recipes developed without eggs or dairy. Egg substitutions can be used successfully in most other recipes.
  8. Ingredient comparisons are given throughout the cookbook. You'll see what happens when you substitute one ingredient for another, see a photo of the results and read my notes. This will save you tons of time, trials and yes, errors in your baking. I've done the work for you!
