Betty Crocker Brownies

I just made a pan of the Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownies. WOW! These are the real thing. I added Nestle White Morsels to it before I baked it and they came out so moist and good! I feel like I am going to get glutened when I eat them because they taste so much like the real thing! These Betty Crocker mixes have been a lifesaver for me! Wow oh wow oh wow!

Add the kraft Caramel bits ( little round caramel not the big squares). The gluten-free Pantry ones are great, too!

I agree, Betty Crocker makes good stuff at a good price.

BTW, Pamela's Pancake/Baking mix makes a GREAT carrot cake. Made a homemade cream cheese frosting and honestly couldn't tell the difference. Amen!

I am also fond of Betty Crocker gluten-free baking mixes. I've added additional mini-chocolate chips to the brownie mix. Yum.

For my pumpkin dump cake (recipe posted in the recipe section) I used the Betty Crocker gluten-free yellow cake mix. Worked great. (I also subbed unsweetened coconut milk for the evaporated milk.)

Kudos to Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix. I use it all the time for both banana bread and pumpkin bread. I don't think anyone can tell the difference. Surprisingly I've not yet tried it for pancakes but have made pancakes using gluten-free Bisquick.

Thanks to all for giving wonderful suggestions to make our gluten-free diets very palatable! biggrin.gif

I use Pamela's for pancakes just about every week. I substitute skim milk for water and add no oil at all. Tastes like a "whole grain" pancake, pretty tasty.

I guess one of these days I may try it for pancakes although I do like gluten-free Bisquick and have some "from scratch" recipes I'd like to try. Before going gluten-free, I never did use pancake mixes as they are easy to make without mixes. Since I live alone, it's nice to have a stash of pancakes in the freezer to zap.

Pamela's is incredibly good stuff and there are lots of recipes on their website. After paying $6.29 for a 24 oz. bag at Giant, I did the subscribe-and-save at Amazon, which brought the cost down to $4.31/bag (at least at the time I subscribed).

The Betty Crocker gluten-free brownies and cake mixes are really good. On their website, they have a bunch of recipes you can make with the mixes to change things up a bit.

I'm trying the mint grasshopper bars this weekend, using the devil's food mix.

Has anyone made the Pineapple Upside Down cake using Betty Crocker yellow cake mix? I made it but didn't care for it. My friends said they liked it. Personally I think they were being kind. laugh.gif

I have two loaves of banana bread in the oven right now using Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix. I've made it a number of times and know it will be good.

My son's girlfriend who loves to bake has been so sweet about making gluten-free desserts for me. She made the pineapple upside down cake with BC mix - I wasn't wild about it, either. But of course I wouldn't tell her that. She also made the BC brownies with cream cheese swirled on top; those were out of this world! And they kept nice, too. So many of our breads and cakes seem to dry right out if you keep them more than a day or two. I haven't tried banana bread yet - sounds yummy!

Pamela's rocks!

ETA: I usually freeze it two slices to a cheap foldover sandwich bag and then put it into a larger ZipLoc freezer bag.

OMG - I was so skeptical with these - but I did find them and bought two boxes of mix just in case I liked them - although I was skeptical. Well, I am soooo glad I have two on hand! This is the first really sweet thing I have had in a long time - and woo hoo I loved them! My husband won't give them a try no matter how much I tell him - it is good! Oh well, I guess more for me! :)

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
