Bisquick Gluten Free review and giveaway
I was sent this package.
It contained The Bisquick Gluten Free mix, a griddle with silver dollar sized pancake molds, a handy squeeze bottle to pour the mix into that allows you to write if you want to and a pancake sized spatula.
Sunday night I decided to make breakfast for dinner, one of my families favorite meals. My daughter and I had decided before hand not to tell my husband that the mix was gluten free to get his honest reaction.
I followed the directions on the box for the pancake batter, It may be a little thicker then your use to and I worried about that too, but as you'll soon learn It didn't matter. I heated the pan (after cleaning it and seasoning it) sprayed it with oil and started making silver dollar pancakes. I must admit the pan is a bit awkward to use and when my husband came into the kitchen he said he hoped I was making HIM bigger pancakes, So after my initial silver dollar pancakes, I switched to my own griddle and made MAN size pancakes. (if only my MAN SIZED man would do dishes). I kept them warm in my warmer as I prepared the rest of the meal.
On first bite I was amazed how light they were. I have used the regular Bisquick mix for pancakes before and always found them a bit heavy, but these were light and tasty and I really like them. My daughter loved them too. Now for the big test, my husband, the ultimate pancake lover. My daughter and I watched intently as he downed them as fast as he could get them Then after he was finished we sprung the news that they were gluten free and he said he could not tell the difference and that he thought they were delicious. One thing we all noticed after eating, is that they didn't leave you with that bloated feeling.
My entire family gives this product a big thumbs up!
