Gluten-Free Taste Test: Why We Love Cup4Cup Flours and Mixes
Whether you're gluten sensitive or you're just serving someone who is, these tasty gluten-free options from Cup4Cup will satisfy the entire crowd at your Easter feast. The great thing about both the Cup4Cup wholesome flour and multi-purpose flour is that you treat each blend exactly as you would treat either whole-wheat flour or all-purpose flour in any recipe. What could be easier than that?
These heavenly Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies are the perfect dessert for Easter. With a decadent cream cheese icing that's smashed between two fluffy carrot cake cookies, these treats are too good to pass up. We kept the entire recipe the same, but swapped out the all-purpose flour for Cup4Cup’s Original Multi-Purpose Flour. The texture is slightly different from the original (a bit more moist) but still very similar to the classic oatmeal cream pie.
Cup4Cup has four prepared mixes, and one of them is their Brownie Mix. A lot of gluten-free brownies can be too chewy, easily fall apart, or even get hard. These were everything you would expect out of a brownie—gooey, fudgy, and chocolaty. This mix can be made into a variety of other desserts as well, but we thought we'd keep it simple and classic with some powdered sugar dusted on top.
Lastly, we gave Cup4Cup's newest product, the Vanilla Cake Mix, a try. The great thing about this blend is that it's made with flaxseed and rice bran for added nutrition and a boost of fiber. While this cake mix can be made into birthday cakes, layer cakes, and more, we made mini cupcakes.
I simply followed the recipe exactly as it's listed on the back of the package, filling each cup about 3/4 of the way to the top. I then baked the mini cupcakes for 20 minutes. I topped each cupcake with the same cream cheese icing used in the Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies recipe and added a little strawberry slice for a festive, tasty finish. These little bites were moist, fluffy, and full of flavor.
