    For a gluten free, vegan cookbook it s fantastic Not all the recipes are winners the pancakes were horrible The plain cake donuts are light and fluffy are are full of flavor The texture is perfect for a donut The Snickerdoodles are amazing once I doubled the amount of applesauce in the recipe I generally don t use bean flours so I have swapped out the garbanzo and fava bean flour for sorghum

    Babycakes books grow on me I finished just about every recipe in the first book so I was delighted to discover this one I love these recipes They are healthy enough and allergy friendly enough for me to eat But sugary and normal tasting enough for the family to like them.

    By this point, about 15 books in, I am definitely seeing some overlap in most of these cookbooks but I did quit reading this one when I got to the Caramelized Onion and Cheddar Cheese Crepes because I am heading to the kitchen to give these bad boys a try Will finish the book later grin
