New iPhone App for Allergy-Free Baking
Do your kids have a food allergy? Chef extraordinaire Erin McKenna showed us that even the most allergy-prone child need not go without cupcakes. Her bakeries, based in New York, Los Angeles, and Disney World, Babycakes, have made it easy for anyone to indulge in gluten-free, wheat-free, or sugar-free cakes, cookies and donuts. Using healthy ingredients like coconut oil and fresh spices, the treats are a guilt-free indulgence. Her cookbook has made it easy to replicate the recipes at home. And now, an accompanying iPhone App makes it easier than ever to recreate these amazing treats. Even if you’re one of the lucky ones who has no food allergies, the recipes are delicious and enjoyable whenever, and provide a healthy alternative to more sugar-laden treats.
The Babycakes App features how-to videos with indie music from Bubbles, Cult and Dinosaur Jr. It even features a celeb endorsement from Kiernan Shipka, Mad Men’s own Sally Draper, herself a big fan of gluten-free baking. Download the app to make delicious gluten-free recipes like pretzels, sandwich bread, waffles, s’mores and teacakes.McKenna even borrows recipes from the likes of Momofuku and Del Posto. While it’s not always easy to find the ingredients necessary to make great gluten-free baking, if you’re willing to do a little research, and even order online, it becomes easy to incorporate healthy ingredients into your kitchen everyday. Plus you can bring cupcakes to school and not worry if there are any kids who can’t eat them.
