    Forget everything
    you’ve heard about
    health-conscious baking.


    Simply, BabyCakes is your key to an enlightened, indulgent, sweets-filled future. This is important news not only for parents whose children have allergies, for vegans, and for others who struggle with food sensitivities, but also for all you sugar-loving traditionalists. The recipes in these pages prove that there is a healthy alternative to recklessly made desserts, one that doesn't sacrifice taste or texture.

    Having experimented endlessly with alternative, health-conscious sweeteners, flours, and thickeners, Erin McKenna, the proprietress of beloved bakery BabyCakes NYC, developed these recipes–most are gluten-free, all are without refined sugar–in hopes of combating her own wheat, dairy, and sugar sensitivities. In BabyCakes, she shares detailed information about the ingredients she uses (coconut flour, xanthan gum, and agave nectar, for example) and how to substitute them properly for common ones–all the while guiding you safely through techniques she’s spent years perfecting.

    When BabyCakes NYC opened on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in 2005, it helped propel the gluten-free and vegan baking movement into a new stratosphere. Suddenly there was a destination for those with wheat allergies and other dietary restrictions–and, soon enough, celebrities and dessert lovers of every kind–to indulge freely in delectable muffins and teacakes, brownies and cookies, pies and cobblers.

    Enclosed within these pages are all the “secrets” you’ll need to bring the greatness of BabyCakes NYC into your own home as well as raves and recommendations from devotees such as Natalie Portman, Jason Schwartzman, Mary-Louise Parker, Zooey Deschanel, and Pamela Anderson.

    For confectionists of all kinds, delicious alternatives lie within: Red Velvet Cupcakes, Chocolate Shortbread Scones with Caramelized Bananas, Strawberry Shortcake, and BabyCakes NYC’s celebrated frosting (so delicious it has fans tipping back frosting shots!), to name just a few. Finally, Erin’s blissful desserts are yours for the baking!

    • Babycakes Rock!

      This is the baking cook book that I have been waiting for! I've been looking for a book about baking with healthier alternatives to wheat and white sugar that do not use artificial sweeteners, and this fits the bill. Most of the recipes use agave nectar, a few use evaporated cane juice. This book gives you great base recipes that are easy to alter to accommodate food allergies; however, the recipes need little altering because they are already free of egg, dairy and gluten (there are a few recipes that have gluten, but most do not). I was not looking for a vegan cook book when I bought this, but I have been very pleased with it, and I will be exploring more vegan options because this book produced such delicious results. The vanilla frosting recipe is invaluable. I never knew frosting could be made without powdered sugar or butter. The Babycakes vanilla frosting is much better tasting than butter cream icing AND it is much healthier.
