In Case Anyone Was Wondering About..

I found all the mixes at our local Food Lion here in TN. The Food City and Walmart did not have them. I haven't checked Ingalls yet. I bought the yellow cake mix and the brownies. I made the brownies and, with the exception that I'm having oven issues and over baked them slightly, they turned out great. They were chewey and fudgey with chunks of chocolate. They tasted like a regular brownie. My husband who is not gluten free loved them too. He said that noone would know they were different unless you told them and that they did not have that "gritty" taste. I have been making homemade brownies from scratch but they are more cakelike. We loved then!! I can't wait to try the cake. I think I paid around $4.49.

Yesterday at an altitude of 7,900 feet I tried the Betty Crocker yellow cake mix and made cupcakes...they came out really, really good. I used Spectrum palm oil shortening as a butter substitute and used a coconut milk frosting, topped with flaked coconut and a maraschino cherry. Non-celiac husband has eaten more than his share of them. The next time, I will try using canola oil. Unfortunately I can't "do" Betty Crocker brownies or chocolate chip cookies, because of dairy and soy issues. I will definitly buy this again to keep on hand for company,grandchildren, etc.

Finally found them at Giant Eagle in Canton, Oh, for $4.29 a box. Seems pricey, but it made 18 cupcakes which is only .24 per. I threw most of them in the freezer so they'll last me forever. Btw, you can frost them and freeze them. I can make a really good gluten-free choc cake, but it is a lot of work. I'm very happy with the product. Now, I need some good store-baught BREAD!
