Next week it’s cake week on Great British Bake Off and since we’re all about celebrating all things sweet and on a total Bake Off sugar high, we’re offering one lucky reader a copy of the delicious Nourish Cakes recipe book by Marianne Stewart. The book offers 50 stunning recipes for cakes and bakes, both large and small, focusing on healthy ingredients such as nuts, vegetables and dried fruit. Many of the recipes are allergy or intolerance-friendly, using wheat-free flours and unrefined sugars, and each recipe is clearly coded to show which dish will suit you.
With sections covering light and zesty bakes (lime, coconut and courgette cake, lavender and spelt sables), vibrant and fruity (peach, olive oil and rosemary friands, fig and honey tart), warm and nutty (sweet potato brownies), and dark and spicy (chocolate, buckwheat and chestnut roulade, clementine, oat and cranberry muffins), the emphasis is on including exciting new ingredients, rather than on cutting things out, showing how you can get the same amazing tastes and textures with healthy alternatives.
With all the recipes checked by a qualified dietitian, the cakes in the book will lead you to embrace a more positive, balanced and inclusive approach in your baking. There's also an index to direct you to vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free cakes at a glance, and all the ingredients can be easily sourced from supermarkets or healthfood shops. Nourish Cakes presents an alternative way of baking and makes it appealing, celebratory and exquisitely beautiful.
