Need some inspiration? Kate Hackworthy’s Veggie Desserts (Pavilion). It promises that it’s not about sneaking vegetables into our cakes and puddings but making them the star” – The Independent, Top Food Trends of 2017
About the Veggie Desserts + Cakes Cookbook by Kate Hackworthy
Let’s celebrate vegetables loud and proud.
Pushing far beyond the boundaries of traditional carrot cake, Kate Hackworthy puts vegetables into scrumptious cakes, muffins, biscuits, tarts, brownies, pastries and even ice cream. Veggies bring moisture, natural sweetness and extra nutrients to baking. Avocados make a great substitute for butter, root vegetables bring sweetness and, in some desserts, vegetable puree can replace eggs. Just because we’re used to having veggies as savoury foods doesn’t mean we can’t serve them in sweet dishes too, so, it’s time to whack them out of the ground and onto the cake stand.
With 60 original recipes, this book is not about sneaking vegetables in, but celebrating them as hero ingredients, resulting in great-tasting treats that are a lot less naughty.
