I love Flourless Chocolate Cake!

Located in darling Downtown Rome, Honeymoon Bakery has a handful of Gluten Free options, including Flourless Chocolate cake, which is my favorite. Now, being the dork I am, I forgot to take pictures while we were there Saturday. Crazy, I know. Thankfully, their website has pictures, so I borrowed one:

See the chocolate covered triangle on the top row (third from the left) well, that’s the Flourless Chocolate Cake, and it is delicious.

Lucky for y’all though, if you aren’t able to get to Honeymoon Bakery, you can make Flourless Chocolate Cake at home. I found this recipe on Pinterest the other day, and plan to try it soon. Fair warning though, it’s a SUPER rich dessert. Like, my mama, sister and I split the piece because it is SO very rich.

Regardless, it’s very tasty, and if you like chocolate . . . you’ll LOVE this!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Love,

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Pops

At the GFAF Expo the NoGii booth was handing out protein powder samples, and instead of just making a protein shake, I decided to change it up and make protein popsicles! 🙂

IMG_3629Here’s what I did:
In the blender, I combined 10 medium sized fresh strawberries (halved, with crowns and stems removed) with one container of yogurt, (I used Oh My Yog!) a 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk, and the 22g sample packet of the protein powder (use one scoop if using the container of mix) until mixture was thick, with a few chunks of strawberries remaining. Then, I poured the mixture into popsicle molds. There was some left over so I put it in a cup, and froze it alone. It wasn’t all that pretty, so here are the popsicles before freezing:IMG_3630

 Once in the molds, freeze for six to twelve hours, or until frozen solid. Run your popsicle mold under warm water until they separate from the molds, and you get something a bit like this:

Then, the popsicles are ready to enjoy! 🙂

I’d love to hear if y’all end up making these! If you do . . . let me know in the comments!

Have a Fantastic Friday y’all!!

Gluten Free Funfetti Cake Mix Review

I’ve been hearing rave reviews of Pillsbury’s Gluten Free Funfetti Cake Mix, but until this week I couldn’t find it in a store near me. Sad, I know. Anyway, I found the Gluten Free Funfetti mix at my local Walmart the other day, and thought I’d share my take on it with y’all! My sister made the mix into cupcakes and topped them with almond buttercream . . . (think delectable wedding cake, y’all!!)

1425651464Now, we’ll split this review into three parts (per usual) FlavorTexture, and Price. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

Flavor:
Awesome. These taste exactly like what I remember of the glutenous version of Funfetti cupcakes. I’d do a side by side comparison for y’all because I’m pretty sure that they’re exactly the same, but I won’t be doing that because . . . Gluten! Lol. They are simply delicious with no weird aftertaste like some Gluten Free mixes give you. I’d declare the flavor of these a ten out of ten! 🙂Texture:
Perfect. There’s no dryness or grittiness whatsoever. My favorite part, however, is they are light and airy with no denseness at all. In fact, texturally, these may be the very best cupcakes I’ve had since going Gluten Free. I’d give the texture a ten out of ten.

Price:
Not bad at all. This mix is $2.98 at my Walmart versus around $4.00 for other similar Gluten Free Cake Mixes I have purchased. They’re still more expensive than the glutenous version, but that’s on par for almost all Gluten Free products. I wasn’t shocked or disappointed. I’m giving the price a ten out of ten, because it’s more reasonable than any other Gluten Free Cake mixes I’ve tried.

Overall:
I think this mix is absolutely fantastic, the taste is fantastic, they’re light and airy and more cost effective than other Gluten Free Cake Mixes I’ve seen. I’m very excited about this product, and I would definitely recommend it to y’all as well as buying it again myself!! So go out and get one for the weekend, bake it up into cupcakes or another fun application, come back here and post your creation so we can all see how fun the “funfetti” can be!!

As usual, all opinions expressed within this review are mine and mine alone. Pillsbury doesn’t have a clue who I am.

Have a Fantastic Friday, y’all!!
Love,
Olivia
