Okay y’all! Let’s face it . . . eating Gluten Free isn’t always the easiest, especially when you can’t participate in fun events like National Doughnut Day. In order to help in finding substitutes for doughnuts, I thought I’d share some recipes I’ve found for Gluten Free Doughnuts!
I’m SO excited to share this product with y’all today! I met Marilyn at the GFAF Expo. What a great lady! She was super sweet, and she gave me TWO different mixes to review for y’all here on the blog. Today I’ll be reviewing the Original Bubble Bread Mix, and sometime soon I’ll be reviewing the Rosemary and Sea Salt Bubble Bread Mix for y’all as well!
The picture you see below is the completed loaf of bubble bread next to the packaging.
This bread is SUPER simple to make. In fact, it would be an awesome way to introduce your little ones to gluten free baking.
It’s made using a really interesting, yet simple process. So I decided to make a quick little video showing y’all how I made mine today! 🙂
In case y’all missed any of that . . . all you have to do is:
Pour your mix into a bowl.
Add in an egg or your choice of egg substitute.
Pour in 12 oz of a carbonated beverage of your choice. Use an entire can if you have one. The taste will change if you use a flavored beverage like root beer, gluten free beer, or fruit-flavored soda.
Stir until smooth.
Pour into a pan.
Bake for an hour.
Slather with butter or coconut oil.
Allow the bread to cool, slice, and serve!
As I said in the video, I’ll be doing a review of the bread here on the blog today, so . . . let’s dive right in!
Price: Though mine was free, I did investigate the price for y’all. It is $6.99 per package — which while a bit pricier than a loaf of Gluten Free Bread; it’s well worth the investment in order to have the experience of making it at least once! 🙂
Texture: Awesome! It’s moist and has a really great crust on it, with a soft interior. It’s not crumbly, and holds together impeccably well (a characteristic uncommonly found in Homemade Gluten Free Bread in my experience) which is fantastic!
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!!)
Now, we’ll split this review into three parts (per usual) Flavor, Texture, and Price. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
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.
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.
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.
