Review continued from Sarah’s Namaste Frosting Mix Review …
I used Namaste’s Perfect Flour Blend to make Molasses Cake (the recipe is on the back of the bag), and it worked really well. The cake tastes like gingerbread without the ginger, and the texture and moistness was similar to their cake mixes. I’m guessing this flour mixture is similar to what’s used in the cake mixes.
Ingredients: Sweet brown rice flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, sorghum flour, and xanthan gum.
And… we tried the Biscuits, Piecrust & More! mix. We really tried. We made biscuits. We made piecrust. No one liked the biscuits: the texture was too firm and the taste was too baking powder-y. The piecrust was similar to other GF piecrusts we’ve tried. It was better than the biscuits, but still a bit sandy in texture for my taste. This is where it’s hard for me to fairly judge GF products, as I am easily able to whip up a batch of biscuits with gluten. But if I weren’t, would I like the ease and taste of these? I don’t know. The package also has directions for coffee cake, but I think I’d use the Perfect Flour Blend instead.
Ingredients: Sweet brown rice flour, brown rice flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, sorghum flour, rice milk powder, cream of tartar, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt.
Overall, we are definitely Namaste fans, especially when it comes to their cake mixes and frostings.
