Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In recent years, treats that gluten sensitive people once thought unattainable have become accessible. Much of the credit for creating gluten-free desserts belongs to Erin McKenna, the proprietress and baker-in-chief of BabyCakes, now located in both New York and Los Angeles. Her Babycakes Covers The Classics delivers on its dust-jacket promise by showcasing gluten-free vegan recipes for temptations including Six-Layer Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Preserves; Chocolate Chip Waffles; Banana Royale; and Thin Mint Madeleines. Mighty tasty cakes.

From the Publisher
"I first heard about the elusive BabyCakes "Mounds" bars on a stick from a friend who said they were incredible. One day, I tasted them... Like heaven... I bought them for my crew at work on Bones and people came back for seconds and thirds…I even had them at my wedding. Now you don’t have to wait to try them; you can make your own!"
--Emily Deschanel, actress
 
"Vegan or not, gluten-free or not, Erin McKenna’s donuts are the best I’ve had in 20 years, without exception."
--Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything and The Food Matters Cookbook

"I am on a constant mission to find the best homemade, baked treats and desserts. BabyCakes’s chocolate chip cookies are not only made with really great ingredients, but they taste better than any other chocolate chip cookie in the world.  Don't feel guilty about having one, or two, or three...This book teaches you how to make them--and many other sweets!"
--Tracy Anderson, creator of Tracy Anderson Method

Recipe

THIN MINTS
1½ cups Bob's Red Mill
AllPurpose GlutenFree Baking Flour
1 cup vegan sugar
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup arrowroot
1½ teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup melted refined coconut oil or canola oil
¹/³ cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 cup vegan glutenfree chocolate chips
3 tablespoons mint extract
I'm Catholic by birth. Winter to us means Lent, which, to be honest, is about all I remember beyond the school uniforms. Anytime winter/Lent rolled around, the only thing we could count on was the housewide hostility that would mount as we spent several weeks avoiding sweets and desserts in all their overindulgent forms. The colder months, you might recall, make up Girl Scout cookie season. In a unique show of torture, rather than simply not placing an order with the Scouts, our family bought a bunch, tossed them into the freezer, and stored them until Easter—about two months later. This recipe is for all you lifetime glutenfree folks who have never been able to enjoy a winter of Girl Scout Thin Mints—and for all you weakwilled kids who can't help but break the Lenten period of atonement. Bless your hearts!
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, arrowroot, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt. Add the coconut oil, applesauce, and vanilla and mix with a rubber spatula until a thick dough forms.
Drop the dough by the teaspoonful onto the prepared baking sheets about 1½ inches apart. Gently flatten each mound of dough, smoothing the edges with your fingers. Bake for 7 minutes, rotate the baking sheets, and bake for 7 minutes more. Let stand on the baking sheets for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the chocolate chips and mint extract in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir until the chips are just melted. Do not overcook. Remove from the heat. Dunk the top of each cookie into the melted chocolate and place in a single layer on a platter. Refrigerate the cookies for 30 minutes, or until the chocolate sets.

    Best By Far

    I've been frustrated for a long time with trying to find baked goods that satisfy both my gluten free mother and I. This book is fantastic! Every recipe I've tried has worked flawlessly, and even thrilled picky family members. Its great to not have to clean up failed baked goods, and have a great tasting product for the time and effort spent baking

    On my wishlist!!!

    I have seen this book at the store in hardcover, and flipped through the pages myself. Great quality, and many pictures! I LOVE the book and the variety of recipes I could make for my allergy-prone son. Hoping that if I purchase on the Nook, that I will still get the same great quality photos. :)
