King Arthur gluten-free muffin mix
The King Arthur gluten-free muffin mix was easy to make, and required similar ingredients as most boxed mixes. It mixed well, transferred well into the muffin tins and only baked for about 20 minutes.
Their muffin mix features a hint of vanilla, a touch of nutmeg. It says it makes a dozen light, tender, high-rising muffins, but I found I got a few more muffins if I did not over fill the muffin tins. It is just the muffin mix and you are encouraged to add in your own fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips.
These muffins were light and fluffy and riddled with blueberries that we had added. They were fantastic right out of the oven, but just as good the following day for breakfast. I was really impressed with the texture and the flavor of King Arthur's gluten-free muffin mix. King Arthur gluten-free mixes were given to our family to review. I was very skeptical with the mixes before I tried using them, but so far have loved each one that I have tried. I still prefer to make my muffins from scratch, but in a pinch they really seem to hit the spot.
I am 48 year old mother of three and grand mother to a beautiful baby boy. I have been married to a wonderful man, Michael for 13 years. I am Puerto Rican and very proud of it! I have Celiac Disease and so do my children (Ages 25 to 11). I think I have had it all of my life, but I was only diagnosed 5 years ago. My main goal as a mom and as a cook is to look at all of the benefits of eating gluten free and in empowering myself, my children and others to be able to create sumptuous meals and exquisite desserts that are virtually undetectable to the gluten eating world. My beloved mother was my greatest teacher and inspiration for all of my culinary endeavors. My passions in life are cooking, gardening, working with children, and teaching. I love to share my recipes and techniques. So I decided to take at least a few of my passions and put them all together into a new business. I am currently teaching gluten-free baking and cooking classes at Whole Foods Market and Gluten Free Specialty in Sacramento, California several times per month. I am also in the midst of starting a small gluten-free cooking/baking business “¡Buen Provecho! Enjoy Your Food!” in the clients’ home.
