I haven’t reported on what I’ve tried in the past few months, so I have lots to cover.
Betty Crocker has come out with gluten-free cake, muffin, piecrust and brownie mix. They sell here for around $4.75 a box. I first saw them in the grocery store a week ago, so I haven’t had a chance to try any of them yet. All the information is on their website, along with offers for free products samples and a sign up for a gluten-free living newsletter.
I did buy a Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Cookie Mix and a Bob’s Red Mill vanilla cake mix, neither of which I’ve made yet. The cookies are on tonight’s agenda.
My sister bought me a Bob’s Red Mill brownie mix for Christmas, and I did make that. In the past I shied away from the Bob’s Red Mill brand because I found some of the products had an unpleasant aftertaste. The brownie mix was a keeper though. It made an 8.5 x 13 pan of cake-like brownies that tasted wonderful. I cut them up and froze them and they kept well in the freezer too.
I also gave Crunchmaster crackers a try. I bought the original flavor, but they had others. I like them, but if I have some kind of reaction to them if I eat too many. I’m not sure what ingredient causes that since they’re gluten free. They do contain four different kinds of seeds, so maybe one of those is the problem.
I saved my best find for last. I bought a Gluten Free Pantry French Bread and Pizza Mix at Whole Foods a few weeks ago. Gluten Free Pantry is my favorite brand for flour and baking mix. This was the closest thing to real bread I’ve eaten since I started eating gluten free. It tastes nearly as good as fresh bread, and the consistency is right on. Again, I cut it in chunks and froze it because I couldn’t eat the whole loaf before it got stale. Well I could have….. Anyway, this one is definitely worth a try.
As always, I have no affiliation with any of these companies. I’m just a satisfied customer.
