If you have to be on a gluten free diet for any reason, you know how hard it is to find a really good dessert. You don't want ice cream, fruit, or something equally as plain; if you are anything like me, you crave cake! Unfortunately, a good gluten free cake is hard to come by, unless you want to use a mix – which usually comes out heavier than what you may like. However, I have recently come across a new book that takes gluten free cake mixes and spices them up. Suddenly, you have a whole new dessert instead of just a plain old cake!
Anne Byrn, the author of The Cake Mix Doctor series, now has a book out called The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten Free. In it, she shows her readers how to take gluten free cake mixes and create 76 new, easy-to-make, delicious desserts. Adding things such as fresh berries, almond extract, and lime, Byrn transforms plain cake mixes into delicious treats. Suddenly, a plain old cake mix is not such a bad dessert after all.
Check out this book and others like it at your local Mid-Continent Public Library branch.
