Giveaway: Gluten-Free Baking with Betty Crocker and Joseph Joseph


One of the fun things about being a food blogger is getting to try new products and equipment. A few weeks ago MyBlogSpark sent me this cool baking kit which includes a rolling pin, a pastry brush, a small rubber spatula (I happen to LOVE spatulas!) and a super cute kitchen timer in this JosephJoseph baking gift set. To be quite honest I haven't had the time YET to try out these nifty tools, but I can tell you they are super cute!


Also included in the gift set was really nice non-stick 8x8 baking pan which is perfect for brownies or 1-layer cakes! Betty Crocker (the lovelies who provided this nice set) have brand new packaging for their gluten-free products ALONG with a few new gluten-free baking mixes. I decided to go out and purchase chocolate chip cookie mix. My husband is quite the connoisseur of chocolate chip cookies...

But instead of making cookies (I'm lazy, what can I say?) I decided to use the 8x8 pan and make a batch of chocolate chip cookie brownies! TO make the brownies all I did was add the required 1 stick of butter, but instead of one egg I used two, and then added 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 cup of milk. This made the brownies more cake-like, but Michael loved them. I baked the batter in the pan for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees. That's it. Super easy, super quick.

While I'm not a huge fan of gluten-free prepared baking mixes... it is fun to have these on hand for last minute chocolate chip cookie emergencies. Michael really enjoyed the mix and said he liked the brownies as much as he would have actual cookies... so win win!



But my favorite thing about companies like "MyBlogSpark" and Betty Crocker? 

They not only send me goodies to try, they offer bloggers an additional set to giveaway as well! SO Here's your chance! Want to win your own set of baking supplies?

  6. I love Joseph Joseph products, they're so colourful. I love to bake but don't actually own a rolling pin so winning this set would be awesome! At the moment I use a wine bottle to roll things out..
    I too love spatulas, they're just so versatile and come in so many pretty colours!
    Hope I win!

  46. What a nice set! I became gluten-free just recently and still am exploring the world of g-free baking (and learning!). Would love to win some new kitchen tools to help me learn how to bake (I just used to eat everything store-bought and since it's cheaper to make my own gluten-free food, I am studying every single cookbook now :).
