So I bought these Udi's chocolate muffins so I could take them to a party where another celiac will be present. I know everyone here has said how good they are so I didn't REALLY have to try one before taking them, but they've been calling my name. I popped one in the micro for a few seconds and now I am in HEAVEN! They really DO taste better than just about any chocolate thing I have ever eaten! They are almost seven dollars for four muffins, but I WILL buy them again.

And now I have a question. The package they come in - it looks like the muffins were baked right in it. Is this one of those silicone pans and can I reuse it? It's still hard to believe one can bake in silicone without it melting, but the way one of the muffins has "flashing" on it that looks like they spilled some of the batter when filling the cup leads me to believe they did bake them in it.

If this IS a reusable "pan", maybe the price isn't so outrageous.

I tried this product once. These are NOT silicone pans - they are plastic. So, unless you want to clean up an icky mess, don't bake with 'em! :blink: I won't be available to help - I'll...um...be busy that day. ;)

Thanks! I'll throw the "pan" away, or maybe clean it and use it to store small guitar parts.

At 300 calories a piece, I am going to try not to indulge too often, but I can tell you that the next one I have will be heated and topped with vanilla ice cream. :wub:

I don't think the price is really outrageous. If you went to a nice bakery for a gluten muffin, it would probably be $2

That's true. Of course bakery muffins are about twice the size, but usually those are TOO big. I could never finish a whole one.

    • It looks insanely good. First time I've wished I was back in London for ages Omg I have to leave the thread I've not eaten yet and now I crave steak  
    • It has always been odd to me that the US, the land of innovation in the world, cannot make great gluten free bread. Of course, no one cares about that except Celiac nation.  I am not saying there isn't good gluten-free bread here because there is.  In the 12 years since my diagnosis, it has come a long way.  However, every time I visit the UK, I am amazed at how much better the bread is.  It more closely matches the flavor and, most importantly, the texture of gluten bread. In fact, there were a few times when I ordered something with bread in a restaurant, and I panicked after taking a bite, thinking they had gotten the wrong bread. No, they didn't...it was just that good!  For those near to London, I implore you to visit here:  http://www.beyondbread.co.uk/  You see those French baguettes?  I had a panini sandwich made from one of those and it was almost a religious experience.    They have won awards for their bread and I can believe it.  I tried to get them to come to the US and open another bakery but I don't think that's going to happen. They have 2 locations......Fitzrovia and Islington.  The Fitzrovia location is very near to the Goodge St. station. Now, hop on the Tube and go there! The meat IS good here, JMG.  We just have so many cows. Cattle country. Now they have created dry aged steaks, which are pricey but they are like the crack of meat. Once you taste how tender they are, you have trouble going back to regular, non-aged meats. They are so tender, they cut like butter. As far as the antibiotics in meat, you can easily buy unadulterated meat here. It's the cheaper, mass produced meats that do that. I know my food and the one thing I love about Europe is the food. In many ways on certain items, the quality is unsurpassed!
    • I was thinking of trying it like 1tbsp maple syrup and upping the egg whites by 10-20g Should make a giant 9"pancake basically with maple flavoring. Not tried it yet but it should work. I was thinking making that version for giant pancake (to thin to pour into smaller ones) that you cook low and slow and can perhaps even use for a breakfast pizza crust with a fruit topping and a creamcheese like spread or just as a pancake, or cut it into sticks for dipping. Should freeze well for toaster reheating later.
    • I'm sorry that I can't lay my hands on it now but I did read a peer reviewed study on morbidity rates amongst non gluten-free compliant celiac patients that said that 1 slip up per month was linked to quite a scary increase in risk of serious complications up to and including cancer. That's not to say that will happen, just that there are potentially serious consequences for celiacs that don't conform to the diet.
