Seriously Good! Gluten Free Baking

Phil Vickery
Authors:
Phil Vickery

This is a collection of 70 mouthwatering gluten-free baking recipes that coeliacs have until now only been able to dream about. Baking is often the most difficult aspect of the gluten-free diet to overcome, as it is gluten that gives bread its elasticity and cakes their spring. Recipes for delicious gluten-free cakes, puddings and pastries are hard to find - all too often the results are disappointingly crumbly and dry. But Phil Vickery's easy-to-follow instructions and practical advice, which draw on his Michelin-honed cooking skills, will have you whipping up melt-in-the-mouth Blueberry Cheescake, Chestnut and Roasted Onion Bread, Springy Scones and Squidgy Chocolate Brownies in an instant.
