Gluten-free and Egg-free Recipes (with some Dairy-free options)

A New Cookbook!

It’s very rare to come across a cookbook that has suitable allergy-free recipes. Many will advertise as an allergy free cookbook, but when you peruse the recipes, they are only factoring in for substituting for one or two allergens, and they hardly ever have recipes for both gluten *and* egg free. A lot have gluten and dairy free, but require eggs to make them work. And by eggs, I don’t mean one or two, but three or more and it is very difficult to substitute for more than two eggs in a recipe and have the cake turn out well. A lot are vegan, and so will be dairy and egg free, but require wheat flour to work well.

You can imagine how happy I was to discover “The Good Cake Co.” with their allergy recipes free from gluten, eggs, dairy and nuts! They have just published their first cookbook “Let Them Eat Good Cake”. I think I must have been one of their first customers to purchase a hard copy, which I’m told is on it’s way. Last night I was delighted to find that I was runner up in their giveaway, and was emailed a digital copy of their book.

If you’d like to try out some of their recipes first, their Lemon, Raspberry and Rosemary Cake recipe is freely available on their site. I’ve made this cake and have really enjoyed it. If you sign up to their email list you also get their recipe for gluten-free flour, which I’ve used and it works really well.

I can’t wait to try their recipes!
