Perfectly Golden: Adaptable Recipes for Sweet and Simple Treats

Angela Garbacz. Countryman, $29.95 (256p) ISBN 978-1-68268-476-4
In this delightful debut, Garbacz, who owns Goldenrod Pastries in Lincoln, Neb., shares recipes for 100 healthy pastry shop favorites. Garbacz creates delicious-yet-healthy desserts with flexible, easy-to-make recipes using gluten-free flour blends, dairy-free milks, and other readily available ingredients that can easily be swapped out to accommodate bakers’ dietary needs and tastes. With the “You Do You” key for each recipe, bakers can choose gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, or traditional versions of dishes; for example, yeasted dough made with almond milk and gluten-free flour is perfect for cinnamon rolls, sticky pecan buns, her grandmother’s peach coffee cake, and Fluffernutter buns. Snack cakes intended for breakfast or tea include Goldenrod’s zucchini-chocolate cake, and for dessert there’s an almond-walnut crusted cheesecake and multiple squares consisting of apple, lemon, apricot, or chocolate ganache. Birthday cakes, pies, creams, and sauces round out the collection. Health-minded home bakers will delight in this friendly, accessible volume. (Apr.)
