Just a few years ago, the idea that a gluten-free, vegan bakery could be voted best dessert shop in Toronto might have been shocking. But in three short years, Bunner's Bake Shop has taken Toronto by storm with their delectable takes on traditional bakery favourites made with non-traditional ingredients.

Ashley Wittig had been a lifelong baker before she went vegan in 2008, and she was determined that dropping eggs and butter wasn't going to keep her from enjoying her much loved, home-baked treats. So she stationed herself in her kitchen to recreate her favourite cookies, muffins and cupcakes without skimping on taste or texture, all while skipping gluten, dairy, egg and soy. She experimented and tested until each recipe was perfect-the cookies were chewy, the muffins perfectly moist and tender and the cupcakes light as air. Together with her partner, Kevin MacAllister, they started selling her treats at farmers' markets on the weekend. The reaction was so positive that they quickly decided to open a full-time bakery dedicated to this unserved niche, and Bunner's Bake Shop was born.

With numerous awards under their apron ties, Bunner's is ready to share their delicious recipes with the whole country. Now anyone, anywhere can bake their signature cinnamon buns, frost up a delicious French toast cupcake, slice into a pumpkin cheesecake or serve up an "I-Can't-Believe-It's-Gluten-Free Pizza Crust." With Bunner's Bake Shop, you don't have to apologize for gluten-free and vegan baking-you can stand tall and even show off a bit as you enjoy and share these delectable treats perfect for everyone and every occasion.

ASHLEY WITTIGandKEVIN MACALLISTERare the founders and owners of Bunner's Bake Shop in Toronto. They opened their first location in Toronto's Junction neighbourhood in 2010. A second location is planned for 2014.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks awesome i like the recipes in the book! they all look so tasty, and i'm new to GF vegan baking. i don't typically have the ingredients for the recipes on-hand, like earth balance butter sticks, xanthan gum, certain flours, etc. the recipes are treats, not really healthy but that's okay. was hoping the ingredients would be easier to find

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easily the most underrated vegan baking book! I've had a lot of success with most of the recipes in this book, with some of them even becoming my go-to. The ingredients can be a bit pricey, as with any vegan cooking, but are relatively easy to find and the results are unlike any gluten-free baking I've ever eaten. Bonus points that the recipes are also soy-free in addition to being vegan and gluten-free.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall Okay Book This book is like a regular baking book (aka. not very healthy) but gluten-free and vegan. I am a fan of the plant-based lifestyle, and find I don't reach for this book often because it doesn't provide me with the healthy treats I am looking for. Their recipes are pretty good, but they are just not food I want to consume very often (or at all)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, easy to follow recipes!! You would never know that the food you are making and eating is gluten-free AND vegan!! These recipes are easy to make with ingredients you may already have or are easy to find. I would highly recommend this cook book, especially if you can't make it out to Bunner's!
