Jean Duane, Alternative Cook has developed a combination of flavors using Sucanut™ – a pure form of brown sugar made from dehydrated cane juice, teff flour, a high protein flour from a grain found in Ethopia. She also uses molasses, ginger and shares her secrets on how to bake using sparkling water to add extra ‘lift’ and vinegar to balance the pH and to boost the leavening. Ms. Duane makes substitutions easy. For the teff flour, use another high protein flour such as garbanzo or garfava (a combination of garbanzo and fava bean flour) or quinoa flour. For the Sucanut™, use brown sugar. “In Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free, see how to substitute flours, liquids and oils to adjust recipes for any allergy.”, says Ms. Duane.

Parents of Autistic children report anecdotally that a gluten free, dairy free (GFCF) diet helps diminish symptoms. Those following a gluten-free, dairy-free diet due to intolerances report they have more energy, less joint pain, migraines and respiratory problems. Though “gluten-free” touts better health, one must be very careful to follow a diet that consists of whole grains. Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free Cookbook focuses on whole grain gluten, and dairy free baking.
