1. Ms Cupcake: The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town Kindle Edition

Gluten and Allergy Free Recipe Books

The preconception that a vegan diet is bland or automatically non-nutritious is as vapid as it is its very claims are, but Ms Cupcake (real name Mellissa Morgan) has set out to lay waste to such claims with her collection of unbearably flavourful cupcake recipes.

Vegan is the primary audience for this book, as is that of dairy-free individuals, but simple substitutions can also make each of the recipes here gluten-free as well. You can find this book at Waterstones:

Gluten and Allergy Free Recipe Books

Delia’s books scarcely need a long-winded introduction, so suffice it to say that this is the kindle edition of Delia’s Cakes, a title whose first edition was published way back in 1977. Needless to say each recipe in this book has stood the test of time, and what’s more, over 90% of the recipes contained within have been tested as gluten free! It’s a little more expensive than most (£12.99), but it’s well worth the extra money for the level of experience and the sheer weight carried by the Delia name.
