For a long time, people with food allergies had to steer clear of sweet treats, but now with wonderful cookbooks like The Divvies Bakery Cookbook, there are delicious goodies that everyone can enjoy, with or without food allergies.
All recipes are no-nut, no-egg, no-milk, and vegan. (Some are even gluten-free.)
I decided to make Divvies Famous Chocolate Cupcakes, which the author, Lori Sandler and her son, Benjamin, the inspiration for Divvies, made together on The Martha Stewart show!
They are so chocolatey and moist and flavorful and SCRUMPTIOUS!!!!
I realize they’re not frosted in this photo. Oops. I’m loops.
Ohhhh! I gotta tell ya one of my favorite things about this cookbook is a section up front where she gives you all these tips and tricks.
For instance, did you know that white vinegar can be an egg substitute? And plain seltzer makes cakes light and airy?
I know…that’s wackadoo and new to you, isn’t it? Me too.
Wanna try a sample recipe so you can see how delicious the treats are?
Try this one for homemade fudge. It’s next up at my house.
