Is there much in terms of gluten free baking in this book?

You have made a lot of things from the book. I tried making the Chipotle and Corn Spelt Muffins today and didn't really care much for them. Of the recipes you have made, do have any personal favorites?

I just ordered this and I'm excited! I'm on a bit of a self-imposed cookbook buying ban as of late, but this is right up my alley so I couldn't say no. I'm a total flour hoarder and I always need new ways to use the more obscure stuff in my pantry. The recipes here all seem really creative- even that hazelnut shortbread looks pretty different to typical shortbread recipes. Can't wait to get started!

Man, so many recipes in this book look amazing. When I get back from spring break, I'll definitely have to make a bunch of them. One thing that's standing out to me right now is the jalapeno cranberry cornbread recipe. I love spicy and sweet together.

The photographs are dreamy.

I would get mad if this book didn't have a large variety of flours. I mean, it's in the title.

In flipping through the book, I see precious little that would be suitable for those avoiding gluten.

I made the Whole Wheat Raisin Bran Muffins this morning. They are really delicious! In fairness to the Chipotle and Corn Spelt Muffin recipe which I was less enthusiastic about, I think I am realizing that unlike yeasted breads, I generally don't care much for spicy/savory quick breads. Others may very well like it.

I loved those muffins! I love everything with cornmeal and chipotle. I really liked everything I tried ( I tested some more recipes but didn't take pics.). My favourites definitely were the brownies and the speculoos muffins. Oh, and the cracked wheat rolls! And you should definitely try the shortbread fingers I linked to. Those are great!

And I agree with Isa. I'd be pretty bummed out if everything was made with wheat in a book called whole grain baking.

Thanks for the recipe suggestions!

I also agree with everyone who has expressed enthusiasm for the fact that this book employs lots of different grains in its recipes. I often substitute whole wheat pastry flour for unbleached when making quick breads and the like but am not particularly versed in working with many of the other materials used in this book's recipes. I've hardly even done much with spelt! Yesterday, I picked up a variety of small bags of grains, nut flours and the like in order to try out a bunch of these recipes. I am good to go!

Just a quick note to say the "look inside" feature is up on Amazon, and it has a lot of recipes!

OMG that sounds really good! Jealous you have the recipe! Definitely post a food porn pic of that once you bake it!

That's great. It really is a lovely book; the variety of food types is wonderful.

my interest is definitely piqued! y'all may recall that i'm allergic to peanuts + all tree nuts. do many of the recipes call for nutty flours like almond flour, etc...? If so, are they substitution suggestions? I'm not really knowledgeable enough about flours to figure out what to sub for a nut-based flour.

My concern is multiple flours in a single recipe. Again, I'm not someone who bakes often so if that is normal in baking, I wasn't aware of that. And again, it sounds like a great book for frequent baker, maybe not for myself.

I didn't count or anything, but I don't remember seeing many (any?).

I was concerned about the yogurt, too, since I've never managed to find it unsweetened before, even with access to multiple Whole Foods and health food stores. So I was glad to have the silken tofu sub. But then today I went to the local co-op and they've recently started carrying the big containers of Whole Soy unsweetened! Which means I will be spending some quality time with this book this weekend. :)

hm. does it have to say "unsweetened"

I use nancys soy yoghurt, and there's almond yoghurt that i use (which is somewhat sweetish), and vanilla....not a lot of choices in my neck of the woods. (and since i bake for friends who are allergic to soy, tofu isn't an option either)

If it isn't plain unsweetened, you can just adjust sweetener elsewhere. I've made the VPiTs puffy pie dough with strawberry or blueberry yogurt. The dough color comes out a little strange, but taste is perfect.

I made the Caraway Onion Whole Wheat Loaf today for St. Patty's. It is so good! I was worried that the amount of caraway seeds would be overwhelming, so I did 1.5 Tbsp instead of 2 Tbsp. It was perfect this way. Just the right amount of onion-y flavor, too. I will be making this again!

i caved and ordered this book last night after some googling and seeing some recipe tester photos that i believe are different than the ones mihl posted on the first page of this thread.....

the soy yogurt may be an issue for me too. earth fare just discontinued carrying the giant tub of plain (but sweetened) soy yogurt by whole soy food co :( they still have the giant vanilla tub and the little 6 - 8 oz cups, but the little cups are pricey (and they don't carry plain in the small size) and not as good as a value as the big tubs.

as for subbing silken tofu for the soy yogurt, is it okay to use the mori-nu in the vacuum sealed shelf stable packs? i would assume soft??

Yep, I've been using Mori-Nu as a sub for yogurt and even oil in baking with no problems. I think you're gonna like the book!

Are you using the soft mori-nu? And yes, I think I'm going to like this book too. I was hooked at the jalepeno cranberry corn bread (or something like that!) and the photos are drool worthy! Although I admit, if I didn't have an Earth Fare in my town with bulk bins, I would probably have to pass this cookbook up which would have been very sad.
