Sue Baker's view...

While it is relatively easy to adapt to special diets when cooking savoury dishes, trying to recreate cakes without wheat flour and dairy is more of a challenge. Julia Thomas has some splendid recipes on offer, including favourites such as Cupcakes and Victoria Sponges and also some Mediterranean cakes made with almonds and hazelnuts. You don’t have to hunt down weird ingredients, the cakes are easy to make and won’t take forever, brimful of delicious recipes, Julia Thomas’s new book is a great addition to the range of books catering for restricted diets.
