And although the bakery is now closed, Cameo decided to put all of their delicious recipes in to a 10th Anniversary cookbook!
To my surprise, upon receiving an electronic copy (Kindle), and then later hardcopy, of the book is the recipes are not only gluten free but allergy friendly! I'll explain more on this below.
Not only am I sharing our review with you about this delicious new book, but I am giving away one copy to a lucky winner! And that's not all! We've also teamed up with Wholesome Sweetners to also include some goodies to help get you started baking!
When I say that the recipes are not only gluten free, but allergy friendly, I mean it.
Each recipe is detailed, as it's written, what it's free from - gluten, nuts, dairy, corn, etc.
The book starts with a comprehensive section on baking tips and ingredient substitution ideas. What works... what doesn't... why she suggest certain items and not others. I love when books have this! I learn so much and it also helps me better adapt their recipes to meet our needs.
Crave Cookbook features five different sections of delicious baked goods recipes: Cakes & Cupcakes, Frostings & Fillings, Brownies & Cookies, Tarts, and Muffins. To get an additional sneak peek inside the book, check it out on Amazon and the "look inside" feature. ;)
For our review, I knew what I wanted to make: Muffins! I love baking muffins and having them on hand for breakfast, snacks, and lunches. They're easy to make and I love that I can freeze muffins, so they are ready at my finger tips for busy mornings or a quick snack.
Cameo's Muffin Base recipe is to.die.for! Those of us who frequently bake gluten free know that when people say "oh just sub for GF flour to make this recipe gluten free" immediately eye-roll... it's not as simple as a one-to-one ratio. Fact. So finding a good gluten free muffin base is key. And Cameo's recipe is just the ticket!
|We also tested the blueberry muffins using the base recipe. I ate them all. :)|
|Apple Cinnamon Muffins using the base muffin recipe + suggested add-ins|
My favorite that we made from the book: The Apple Cinnamon Muffins. Hello! It's like an apple pie in a delicious muffin wrapper.
I love biting down into the chunks of apples and that subtle taste of cinnamon. Yum!
Now for the best part!
Here is your chance to WIN a copy of this amazing cookbook for yourself!
And it gets even better!
