Confession: I have never mixed my own gluten free flour blend. I know many gluten free cooks and bakers make their own, but, seriously, what’s the point? There are so many fabulous gluten free flour blends on the market so no one ever has to mix their own gluten free flour blend and spend a lot of money trying to figure it all out. Today, with great pre-mixed gluten free flour blends, the baking process is so easy and efficient.
One recent flour blend discovery is Grandpa’s Kitchen Gluten Free Flour Blend. The kind folks at Grandpa’s Kitchen sent me a sample bag of their flour to try and review on the Good For You Gluten Free blog. This post also contains affiliate links.
Grandpa’s Kitchen calls itself a cup-for-cup flour substitution. This means you can use Grandpa’s Kitchen gluten free flour blend as the flour substitute in any recipe. It’s motto is “Gluten Free doesn’t mean Taste Free.” I agree!
For the purpose of this review, I decided to try a new recipe. I visited Grandpa’s Kitchen’s website and browsed the recipe list (lots of great ideas!) and settled on the Gluten Free Pumpkin Squares. I bought a bunch of canned pumpkin on clearance after Thanksgiving and was itching to use it!
So I gathered all the ingredients and got to work. I am hosting my in-laws for dinner tonight to thank them for some work they did for my business, so I wanted to have a special dessert awaiting them. These pumpkin squares should do the trick!
OK, here’s the deal. Grandpa’s Kitchen Gluten Free Flour Blend is seriously amazing! You have to get this stuff, you’ll be hooked like me! On top of that, you have to make these gluten free pumpkin squares. They were delicious – light and spongy, just enough sweet to satisfy a dessert craving, and just enough cake-like texture to satisfy those gluten free cake cravings! I am really excited to have a new recipe in my repertoire and excited to have this amazing gluten free cup for cup flour in my pantry.
I can honestly say that I don’t think the pumpkin squares would be as fluffy and light with another gluten free flour blend – there really is something about Grandpa’s Kitchen gluten free flour blend that seems to work well in this recipe. So if you want to try this recipe, or any of the other delicious gluten free dessert recipes you see on the Grandpa’s Kitchen website, you will need to get some Grandpa’s Kitchen Gluten Free Flour and judge for yourself.
To purchase Grandpa’s Kitchen Gluten Free Flour Blend, go to the Honeyville store – you can get this stuff at a GREAT price! It’s $13.99 for a 2lb bag (looks to have about 4 cups of flour in there), or $23.99 for a medium 5lb bag.
Once you try this flour for yourself, drop me a line or leave me a comment. Did I lead you astray? I don’t think so – I know you’re going to be thanking me for this fabulous flour – and recipe – find!
