I Made A Huge Mistake!

Recommended Posts

Last week, I bought a couple of mixes from the Gluten Free pantry because I had heard so many good things about them on here. So I got the sandwich bread mix and the muffin mix. I tried out the bread mix a few days ago, and the whole family LOVED it. Then this morning I tried out the muffin mix and made blueberry muffins w/ struedel on top. They were amazing.

The problem is, I CANT AFFORD THESE MIXES!! And now I want them all the time. I don't want to go back to making things from scratch :( .

So does anyone have a recipe that is equivelant to these mixes????? PLEASE!!! I just cant afford to pay $5 for 1 loaf of bread. But I LOVE the taste.

Well, I haven't tried those, but I might try to approximate the recipe by using logical proportions of the ingredients they have on the package. Also taking note of the color, aroma, etc, while adding things, and attempt to match the original.

What may help is to bake a small amount of the mix like a cookie, for a reference. Then as you tweak your own blend, bake a similar cookie to see how it compares. This might waste some ingredients before you get the blend right, but once it's done you'd have the recipe forever.

I've seen many recipes come up in Google which emulate name brand products, so perhaps someone has already done the work and posted the recipe.

I make up flour mixes in big containers so I don't have to measure out six different kinds of flour each time I bake. That has increased my baking efficiency a lot.
