Gluten Free Gift Pack Give-Away

Comments are closed.  Thanks to all who entered!  Our winner is Pat~ please email me with your shipping information, there wasn’t an email address in your comment so I am unable to contact you.  If I don’t hear from Pat via email by 12/27, I will select a new winner on the 28th.  Merry Christmas!

The kind folks over at Live Gluten Freely (General Mills) has offered one of my readers a box of gluten free goodies to try out.  (Yay!).

The box of gluten free products I received included items from: Chex, Betty Crocker, Larabar, Bisquick, and more!

You can read my initial post about my gift pack here.

Our favorite gluten free products from General Mills include LaraBars and Chex cereals.  We will be making gluten free muddy buddies to include in our Christmas goodies this year.  I always keep a few LaraBars in the car for those sudden starving moments (if you have children, you know exactly what I am talking about).  Plus, its winter time and it’s a great idea to have some snacks stashed in your car in case of emergency.  Since we consume the snacks on a regular basis, they get a good rotation and I don’t have to worry about wasting them!

    I would love to use the Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake mix and icing to make cupcakes and then use the fruit rollups to make designs on the tops. I would share these with my daughter’s kindergarten class because they love cupcakes just as much as I do.

    The day I found out they had gluten free cake was the best day of my life since becoming gluten and corn free. I bought a mix and tried it and I had tears coming out of my eyes I was so happy to finally have some cake. I hadn’t had success at all with any cake and this was fantastic. I even wrote to them and told them how happy I was.

    I love to make some cupcakes and put them in the freezer for those days I want something to nibble on.

    Lisa- we too keep cupcakes in the freezer. It’s a great prep trick! 🙂

    Hiya! Thanks so much for this awesome giveaway. It seems Celiac’s is rearing it’s head more & more these days. Quite a few friends & family have it & I seem to be doing more gluten free meals.

    Here is a really delish recipe!!

    Dark Goddess Cake (YUM)

    12 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate, chopped
    1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into pieces (6 oz. butter)
    1 tablespoon bourbon vanilla extract
    7 large organic free-range eggs
    1 cup organic light brown sugar, packed
    1/2 cup organic white cane sugar
    1/4 cup organic unsweetened cocoa
    1/2 cup almond flour

    To serve:

    Sifted cocoa powder or powdered sugar
    Fresh seasonal berries
    Whipped cream, if desired

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Line the bottom of a 9-inch Springform pan with a circle of parchment paper; tenderly butter the paper. Think: chocolate love.

    Place the chocolate and butter in a medium to smallish saucepan, and set the pan into a slightly larger sauce pan filled with two inches of hot water; bring the water to a simmer and slowly melt the chocolate and butter together. Stir with an old beloved wooden spoon until the chocolate and butter are melted together. Remove the pans from the heat, and set aside the pan of chocolate and allow it to cool a bit (to warmish). Stir it often to keep it smooth. (Or you could do this melting thing the postmodern way and heat it in a glass dish in the microwave.)

    On to the eggs. Using an electric mixer, beat the heck out of the eggs until they appear light colored and frothy; add the sugar and beat it all again until the mixture is thick and flows in ribbons, about 5-6 minutes.

    Slowly – very slowly – pour about half of the warm chocolate into the egg-sugar mixture (to gently temper it). Beat on low to combine. At this point I switch over to my trusty wooden spoon, and blend in the remaining chocolate by hand. Add the vanilla.

    Sift the cocoa into the batter and gently mix. If you’re adding the almond flour, do the same. Lightly combine.

    Pour the batter into the prepared springform pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for about 50 minutes. Ovens vary! Err on the near side if you like a fudgier texture; bake it longer and it becomes drier, more cake-like.

    Note: the top of the cake may be cracked – that’s fine. A toothpick inserted into the cake’s center will emerge clean with a few moist crumbs when done.

    Cool the cake in the pan, on a wire rack. Loosen the cake from the edges of the pan with a small flexible spatula, and release the spring clasp.

    You may serve the cake right side up or invert it onto a 9-inch serving plate and peel off the parchment. I like the shape of it as is, and serve it upright.

    Dust the cake with cocoa powder or powdered sugar and garnish with a few scattered raspberries or mint leaves, if desired.

    Lying in bed last night I was thinking I should make an espresso flavored whipped cream for a good sexy dollop.

    Serves 10.

    I love to make a dump cake using their vanilla cake mix. I mix a can of cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple and put that in the bottom of a 9×14 pan, cover with the cake mix and top with a melted stick of butter. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 – 45 minutes. It is delicious!
