View Full Version : any baked item be dehydrated?
09-24-2007, 02:56 PM
I was looking thru some of my other cookbooks and thought why couldn't some of this stuff be dehydrated instead of baked or cooked? I have some cracker recipes as well as dessert type stuff. Just thinking that the dehydrator just takes longer then the put in for 30 minutes at 350 degrees routine but end result would be same?
Was just gonna go ahead and try it but always like some input before I go and mangle more food! :p

Well, it all depends. Sometimes you have to substitute certain things for others. Also, a lot of baked goods and their ingredients depend on high heat. For example, baking soda or baking powder.
If you're using a vegan cookbook, you may get away with some things especially if you already sub flax for eggs, etc. But they may turn out differently. What I normally do is take cooked recipes and convert them over to raw by subbing ingredients and making necessary changes where needed. If you are not very experienced with uncooking, this may (or may not) pose as challenging if you're not certain WHAT should be subbed for what. But it can be done with a lot of recipes.

Yes they are vegan recipes and I have noticed when I have baked some things that they were not that cooked anyway.
Thanks for reply, I will see what happens and I guess can always cook stuff if have to just so I don't throw out the food.
