Overview

The naturally Sweet Baker If you have decided to stop baking with refined sugar for dietary or personal reasons, The Naturally Sweet Baker is the perfect cookbook for you. Chock-full of delicious and decadent recipes that use natural sweeteners instead of granulated, refined white and brown sugars, The Naturally Sweet Baker is not about deprivation—it's about indulgence. Author Carrie Davis proves that using natural sweeteners, such as honey and maple syrup, will result in some very sweet and tasty desserts. Just listen to these treats: Cinnamon Pecan Sticky Buns, Devil's Food Cake with Italian Meringue Chocolate Buttercream, Black Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream, and Banana Chocolate Crêpes. Those ought to excite your sweet tooth! Not only are natural sweeteners delicious, but they are good for you, too. Natural sweeteners contain minerals and vitamins; the process of producing refined sugar, however, strips it of its nutrients, leaving behind only "empty" calories. If you're thinking you have to shop in natural food stores to use this book, think again. Carrie makes it all very simple with descriptions and explanations of each sweetener—maple sugar, barley malt syrup, and molasses, just to name a few. Many of the sweeteners are probably already in your pantry. And for those that aren't, there is a convenient mail order list so you can stock up on your favorite ingredients. With chapters on breakfast treats, cakes, cookies, ice creams, cobblers, and pastries, you'll never run out of ideas. The Naturally Sweet Baker is your source for decadent sweets without refined sugar.
