Yes, Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes are back and the owners say it’s “for good”. We hope so.
Although there are many gluten-free mixes out there, only a handful are made in dedicated facilities without gluten, dairy, and all other top allergens. Plus, the collection of Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes includes the most fun and unique options. They have traditional cake and muffin mixes, but you can also make your own Mock Goldfish Crackers, Bagels, Animal Cookies, and more! See the box at right for all varieties of Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes.
We had the opportunity to sample a few mixes and were impressed with the outcomes. Caroline tried the Chocolate Cake Mix with the Chocolate Fudge Frosting Mix, and it was a huge hit. She prepared the cake with the frosting, took it to a board meeting and said that everyone went “crazy for it”. Her food allergic daughter concurred that it was delicious, helping to finish every last crumb. That said, like most gluten-free, allergy-friendly cakes, there was a little crumbling. The frosting was “very tasty” on its own, and helped to amplify the chocoholic experience. Caroline’s only complaint was that the frosting did take some work, and the instructions weren’t stellar.
I chose to try out the Soft Pretzel Mix, for something a little different. And because I love soft pretzels! The dough is softer, and breaks more easily than wheat dough, but I was still able to roll out some pretty cute pretzels. You can see a picture of them in the collage below, that is my photo. They were far from traditional, and didn’t really brown, but they had their own unique charms. The consistency was just barely crusty on the outside, and softened when stored. The inside was tender, but a little chewy, like many gluten-free baked goods. I wasn’t a fan of the vinegar influence on the flavor (there’s an option for making it without), but overall thought these could be fun to make with different flavors and toppings.
In addition to being free of dairy, gluten, soy, eggs, and nuts, Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes are also free of corn and GMO ingredients. They also offer a corn-free powdered sugar. I used it in several recipes and swear that the results were better than when I use Trader Joe’s organic powdered sugar.
Despite my somewhat lengthy review, we’ve barely scratched the surface with Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes. So feel free to share your own review in the comments if you have tried any of these conveniences.
