I am one of those people who can eat sweets for breakfast, lunch, dinner... and still wouldn't mind having one last bite before my bed... so when my friend (who probably knows me too well) gave me this recipe book from Babycakes in NYC, I was ecstatic!
I am not a vegan nor on gluten-free diet..., but it doesn't hurt to eat healthier, right? Especially if they look this great on pictures...
After browsing through the book many many times, I had my first [go] at one of the recipes this weekend. Strawberry shortcake. I had to hunt for some very eclectic baking ingredients like coconut flour, spelt flour, dry soy milk..., etc. at Wholefoods but somehow I managed to have all the ingredients on my kitchen counter yesterday.
I have to say... it was surprisingly easy and simple to make their vanilla frosting and short bread. I put baking soda instead of baking powder and I forgot to melt coconut oil before putting it in the frosting mixture... so that screwed up the flavor and texture a little but they came out still pretty okay. I would have to try it again with right ingredients and process.
I see more baking/cooking photos to come in the future!
