When Jennifer Katzinger opened The Flying Apron Bakery in 2002, she wanted to accommodate more people, as well as use healthier ingredients so she eliminated gluten, dairy, egg and wheat. The mouthwatering result? Cakes and muffins with a tender crumb, cookies with a chewy bite, frosting that's light yet satisfyingly sweet and pastry that flakes at the touch of a fork. In "Flying Apron's Gluten-Free and Vegan Baking Book", Katzinger shares the delicious secrets of her sweet and savoury recipes. Bake yummy pastries like Blueberry Cinnamon Scones and Lemon Poppy Seed muffins, or whip up a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies, or Cardamom Spice Cupcakes. In more than 80 recipes, Katzinger offers satisfying treats, whether you're transitioning to a vegan or gluten-free diet, or simply wanting to indulge a sweet tooth using healthier ingredients.

Our customer reviews

Hit: The bread recipes in this book are excellent - in particular the Flying apron house bread which is a fairly rustic style loaf with an amazing flavour from mashed sweet potato. This particular recipe can be used to make pizza dough and vegetable pasties (recipes also in the book). Bread recipes do not require proof-time and require as little kneading as possible, so they can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. They do however, have quite long bake times (average of about 2 hours). There are some delicious salads and soup recipes also. All recipes cater for the allergen stricken (soy free, nut free options etc.). Miss: Some of these recipes require expensive and obscure ingredients, such as matcha (Japanese green tea powder) and lemon oil etc. Living in Australia, I have had to search extensively for some of these ingredients, and usually ended up purchasing them online from another country. I have found that more ingredients are readily available nowadays compared to when I first purchased this book. For example, apple juice concentrate is now available from Coles for about $4 a jar. Some of the measurements and cooking times are off, which is a matter of giving a recipe a go and configuring for your own tastes and oven. Overall: There are some lovely recipes in this book but it is definitely not for someone who is not familiar with 'alternative' health foods, or who is new to GF. I highly recommend Katzinger's latest book (GF vegan artisanal bread) over this more

I bought this book as I was new to vegan baking and found it very disappointing. There wasn't a single recipe I could bake with the ingredients I had on hand in my pantry (have been baking gluten free for years). I have had the book for 6 months and I still haven't made a single thing from it book! Each recipe contains multiple types of flours and large volumes of sweeteners (maple syrup or fruit juice concentrate) ALL expensive items. Perhaps these ingredients are more available at a reasonable price in the US, but in Australia it would cost me at least $30-40 to make a single batch of cupcakes. I would have to go out and buy almost every ingredient on the list. NOT the book to begin your gluten free vegan journey with!show more
