Easy Gluten-Free Baking (Elizabeth Barbone)

“Gluten-free baking can be overwhelming, I wrote this book to make it easy,” says Elizabeth Barbone, the founder of Barbone, a Culinary Institute of America graduate with a specialty in baking and pastry arts, creates gluten-free recipes that taste as good, if not better, than their wheat counterparts. Now, in Easy Gluten-Free Baking (Lake Isle Press; April 2009; $24.95,spiral), she shares recipes that show that living gluten-freedoesn’t mean giving up the foods you love most. Recent studies show that 1 in 100 Americans have celiac disease and about 95% remain undiagnosed. As more people become aware of the disease and more gluten-free products flood the market, Barbone’s book sets itself apart with its foolproof recipes that can be trusted to be 100% gluten-free. You won’t find any expensive or hard-to-find ingredients here—Barbone makes stocking your gluten-free pantry easy and affordable. Avoiding off-tasting bean flours, her flour blends are customized for each recipe, ensuring the best taste and texture whether you’re whipping up a decadent chocolate cake for a birthday party or making thin-crust pizzas for the whole family. No need for overpriced store-bought mixes and flour blends—Easy Gluten-Free Baking shows you how easy it is to make your own. Having suffered from severe food allergies since she was a child, Barbone has lived her life knowing how difficult it can be to eat worry-free. She has spent endless hours testing her recipes—from buttermilk pancakes to gooey brownies—using real butter, sugar, eggs, milk, and cream. The only ingredient missing is gluten—and no one will know the difference! In Easy Gluten-Free Baking, you’ll find recipes for day-to-day use, special occasions, parties, gifts, and bake sales. Start the day off with Barbone’s gingerbread pancakes, sour cream coffee cake, and Blue Ribbon banana bread; barbeque with homemade hot dog and hamburger buns; have a family dinner with thin-crust pizza and cheesecake brownies for dessert. Barbone has a gluten-free answer to all of your cravings. In the “Tastes Like” section, Barbone has expertly created gluten-free recipes for everything from Oreos, Twinkies, and Honey Maid Graham Crackers to Girl Scout Cookies and Ritz Crackers. Indulge in your favorite guilty pleasures and never feel left out again. Barbone’s Easy Gluten-Free Baking includes invaluable baking tips and techniques that will make your time in the kitchen easier and more enjoyable. See all the rave reviews from readers on
