9780060779290: Perfect Light Desserts: Fabulous Cakes, Cookies, Pies, and More Made with Real Butter, Sugar, Flour, and Eggs, All Under 300 Calories Per Generous Serving

Everybody loves dessert, but nobody loves the calories. Perfect Light Desserts offers recipes for desserts rich enough to satisfy any sweet tooth -- but with sensible calorie counts.

Master baker Nick Malgieri and healthful food expert David Joachim have joined forces to create 125 exceptional desserts without the usual quantities of fats and sugars. The focus is on flavor and texture achieved through balanced ingredient combinations and superior baking techniques. Not a single recipe has more than 300 calories per serving.

The results are nothing short of spectacular, with desserts that range from devil's food cake (complete with fluffy icing) to a lemon custard highlighted with a colorful raspberry sauce. Old-fashioned American favorites such as hermits mingle with sophisticated treats like rum raisin semifreddo and white chocolate raspberry tartlets. Best of all, while these desserts are low-calorie, they are high in flavor. Moist coconut poppy seed coffee cake, juicy blueberry pie, and fudgy brownies don't taste like “diet desserts”; they simply taste great.

All of the recipes here achieve great flavor without resorting to artificial sweeteners or synthetic substitutes. The recipes use moderate amounts of real butter, sugar, flour, and eggs in perfect proportions. Every recipe includes a complete nutritional analysis as well as serving and storage notes. Everybody loves dessert, and now no one has to go without it.

About the Author:

Nick Malgieri is the author of seven books, including A Baker's Tour, Perfect Cakes, Chocolate, and the James Beard Award–winning How to Bake. He is director of the baking program at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City. His website, www.nickmalgieri .com, includes a schedule of his guest teacher appearances across the country.



David Joachim has written about healthy cooking for more than fifteen years. He has authored or collaborated on more than twenty-five cookbooks, including The Food Substitutions Bible and the New York Times bestseller A Man, a Can, a Grill. His A Man, a Can series has sold more than one million copies.

From Publishers Weekly:

Readers who know Malgieri as the author of such drool-inducing books as Chocolate, Perfect Cakes and Cookies Unlimited may be surprised to find the phrase "all under 300 calories per generous serving" on the cover of his new cookbook. Has the renowned pastry chef gone healthy? Only a little bit—and with nary a sprinkle of Splenda or spoonful of "buttery spread" in sight, Malgieri and Joachim ( A Man, a Can, a Grill) offer 125 simple recipes for chocolate desserts; cakes; pies and tarts; puddings, custards and soufflés; fruit desserts; iced and frozen desserts; and cookies that happen to be lower in calories than most. Some recipes are for traditional desserts that are naturally low in calories and fat (Blueberry Pie, Peaches in Red Wine, Biscotti), while others use lighter ingredients, e.g., a combination of whole eggs and egg whites (instead of egg yolks) or low-fat dairy products (Chocolate Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Icing, Ginger Lovers' Pound Cake). The authors only go so far with their "light" approach, though: real butter and even real heavy cream appear in several recipes—the result being a well-rounded recipe collection for delicious and fairly guiltless treats.
