The following review was written by Laura Hanley of G-Free Laura.
I’ve had my fair share of gluten-free sweets the past few years. Whether I’ve baked them myself or received them from a gluten-free bakery, I’ve had the best of the best and the worst of the worst. So, when Jessica of kitch+table approached me for a review of her products, I was excited to see where her mixes would land on the scale of gluten-free deliciousness.
First off, I have to say that kitch+table has the CUTEST packaging, especially for a start-up company. I could tell a lot of love and attention was put into my little box of heaven, and that’s always nice to see when you order a new gluten-free product. I even received a personal Thank You card for taking the time to taste and review the products. The silly part is that I felt like I should have been the one doing the thanking, seeing that I had a box filled with gluten-free goodies sitting in front of me.
Included in my package was gluten-free pizza dough and gluten-free brownie mix. It was nice to receive a mix instead of a prepared product for a change because it adds to the overall experience. I mean, who doesn’t remember baking brownies with their mom when they were little? It never hurts to bring back those memories every once in a while, for the sake of your taste-buds of course.
I had decided to have a night of kitch+table baking, starting off with the pizza dough for dinner. You can see how that turned out over on my blog: Gluten-Free Pizza Dough. My plan: eat the delicious pizza for dinner, then end with the chocolate brownies. So, while the pizza was in the oven, I mixed up the brownie batter.
I don’t even know how to explain how amazing the batter was. It was not gritty AT ALL (unlike several other gluten-free brownie mixes I have had). It was rich, smooth, and irresistible. I don’t want you to even know how many spoonfuls “accidentally” ended up in my mouth.
After cooking up the pizza and taking it out of the oven, I let the temperature lower to the appropriate 325 degrees for the brownies. The instructions noted a baking time of 31-35 minutes, so I set up the timer. I then enjoyed far too much pizza (I’m telling you, when it’s THAT good, you just can’t make yourself stop)!
When the timer buzzed, I skipped on over to the oven and took the pan out. It looked perfect. I was so excited. I let them cool for a bit, and then cut off a corner because I couldn’t wait one more second.
Rich. Moist. Chocolate. Yum.
I snapped several photos and uploaded them to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. You wouldn’t believe the replies I was getting. So many people wished they were eating what I was. I felt like one lucky girl. If you like what you see here, you HAVE to order these mixes. You will not be sorry – Girl Scouts Honor. They’re easy to make and so much fun to eat.
