I love baking but honestly it takes a lot of time to buy the ingredients, mix everything together and bake to perfection. Factor in a boyfriend who's gluten intolerant and you can see why baking is kept for special occasions and rainy Sundays.
Recently though I found Sticky Mix on Twitter. This is a company that produces artisan cake mixes producing not only regular cookie & brownie mixes, but also various gluten, dairy, soya and egg free mixes.
They very kindly sent me a Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie mix to try out, so last night after a full day at work, the dreaded food shop and a gym session I made some brownies (in between cooking dinner and getting some washing ready)
The box contains individually wrapped sugar, flour & cocoa and Belgian chocolate drops. You only need to add a small quantity of butter and 2 eggs.
The instructions are clearly written out on the back - melt the butter & chocolate in a bowl, lightly mix the eggs and sugar together, then add the chocolate mix to the egg mix and add the flour. Bake in a pre-lined tin for 15-17 minutes.
And this is the resulting brownies. Even though I left them in slightly longer than the recommended time (that's what you get for trying to cook dinner at the same time!) the brownies are still soft and slightly gooey and taste amazing!
The Sticky Mix ready mixes retail for £5.00 per box with a £3.99 delivery charge. Each box makes 12 generous brownies or cookies that will be enjoyed by people with both gluten free and non gluten free diets.
I received a free box of the Sticky Mix Gluten Free Belgian Chocolate Brownies for this review, however all thoughts and opinions remain my own.
