One of the most common allergens after dairy and peanuts, eggs are often thought to be a necessity in baking. But what eggs do contribute to your sweets―fat, flavor, structure, fluffiness, moisture―can actually be found in countless alternative ingredients that are easy to find. And with meticulous experimentation, Mimi Council has tested them all: aquafaba (the liquid in a can of chickpeas) for fluffiness, yogurt for flavor and structure, cornstarch for thick and creamy custards, and more.

Explaining the role that eggs―and other powerhouse ingredients―play in baking, Mimi ensures that readers understand exactly how and why her recipes work. From classics like Blueberry Muffins and Chocolate Chip Cookies, to original creations like Orange Cardamom Loaf Cake, Lemon Poppy Seed Biscotti, and Raspberry Rhubarb Tart, these desserts are flawless. Colorful photographs and easy substitutions for vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free bakes make this book a diet-friendly delight.

the mountain baker cookbook


Mimi is joined by professional snowboarder and friend, Kimmy Fasani in The Mountain Baker, that's available now! From sweet and savory to fluffy and flaky―tried-and-tested recipes made for the 21st-century outdoor adventurer.

Most recipes are developed and employed at or close to sea level, so what is a baker to do if they live 5,000 feet higher? In The Mountain Baker, longtime mountain dwellers Mimi Council and Kimmy Fasani share their recipes for successful cakes, cookies, muffins, breads, and beyond. With their firsthand experience, Council and Fasani are just the women to talk about the science behind high-altitude baking and cooking.

From hearty eats and apres snacks to decadent desserts, these recipes include conversions for sea-level kitchens, so home bakers can enjoy these treats wherever they cook: Double Black Diamond Brownies, Honey Graham Pancakes, Rosemary Parmesan Biscotti, Pizza Bread, Snow Day Cake, and more. With tips on why your alpine cakes are sinking or why your cookies are burning, this is the go-to resource to help readers fearlessly face their high-altitude kitchen or simply get in the outdoor spirit.
