I found Marilyn’s Gluten Free Gourmet/ American GraFrutti here in Knoxville!

So, I’ve written about my love of Marilyn’s Gluten Free Gourmet before, but I had yet to see them in stores locally until the past couple days!

Yesterday at Kroger I found their Traditional Cheese Straws, and Gourmet GrahamsIMG_4261Then, today at Whole Foods I found their classic Bubble Bread Mix, and an assortment of cakes and cupcakes in the freezer section.IMG_4278I was SO thrilled to find these products around town, and am looking forward to trying them in the future!

Have y’all found any products from American GraFrutti/ Marilyn’s Gluten Free Gourmet near you? Let me know in the comments!

Have a Terrific Thursday y’all!

Marilyn’s Gluten Free Gourmet . . . an update!!

I wrote about Marilyn’s Gluten Free Gourmet awhile back, and showed y’all how to make their Bubble Bread! Well, the other day I made dinner rolls with their Rosemary and Sea Salt Bubble Bread Mix by following the directions on their website. (scroll down a ways) IMG_4007All you do is preheat your oven to 350º, grease a cookie sheet, and make your Bubble Bread Mix according to the instructions (I used Club Soda). Use an ice cream scoop to place dollops of dough on to your pan. Bake for 15 minutes. IMG_4008My ice cream scoop is a bit on the large side, so I ended up with 11 rolls opposed to the 15 mentioned in the recipe on their site!IMG_4015They ended up as very pretty dinner rolls (see above) and they were quite tasty as well!

I was quite impressed by how easy it was to use the mix for rolls, and plan on trying this again soon with another carbonated beverage and the plain bubble bread mix. If I do try it, I’ll be sure to update y’all on how it works out! 🙂

Have a wonderful day y’all!!

Love,

Marilyn’s Gluten Free Gourmet Bubble Bread Mix . . . a review!

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:

  1. Pour your mix into a bowl.
  2. Add in an egg or your choice of egg substitute.
  3. 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.
  4. Stir until smooth.
  5. Pour into a pan.
  6. Bake for an hour.
  7. Slather with butter or coconut oil.
  8. 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!

Taste: The most important factor, right? Well, this Bubble Bread does not disappoint. It’s a sweeter bread and is tasty with jam, and tea more than likely. 😉 I really liked the flavor of it, and I am looking forward to seeing what else pairs well with it!

Overall: I love this product. It was incredibly simple to make. It tastes fantastic, and it isn’t outrageously priced at all! Makes Marilyn’s Bubble Bread a winner in my book!

Thanks to American Gra-Frutti and Marilyn’s Gluten Free Gourmet for allowing me to review your product! It was splendid!

Have a Stupendous Saturday, y’all!

Love,

Olivia
