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! :)

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
