Vegans and anti-gluten people, we’ve got some fantastic news for you — there is a cool new baking app made just for you and your special preferences! No doubt, there are many recipes out there that target gluten, dairy, and allergy-free desserts, we even have some on our blog. However, Erin McKenna’s cookbooks have no equal in my heart.
Erin is the founder and creative force behind the popular Vegan bakery called BabyCakes NYC. She has authored two cookbooks that are nothing short of decadent and fun. The revolutionary baker makes baking without certain ingredients feel like a celebration and not a deprivation. But where the physical store offered a baking sanctuary for vegans and gluten-averse individuals, the new BabyCakes app promises more value.
The app is in one word: adorable! It features recipes like Banana Chocolate Chip Teacake; guest appearances by Mark Bittman and Kiernan Shipka (aka Sally from Mad Men); and music from J Mascis, Bubbles, Cults, and Bleached.
If you already have the BabyCakes cookbooks or are extremely lucky to live near one of the decadent bakeries, you may or may not need this app. Otherwise, it is a must-have asset! The BabyCakes app is valued at $3.99 on iTunes.
