Cook up some gluten free magic with Delicious Alchemy
Regular readers of this blog will know we’re suckers for super cool packaging and ready made bags of stuff that you just empty into a bowl and create something scrummy. So – drum roll – we can highly recommend Delicious Alchemy the Yorkshire based gluten free brand that’s recently had a bit of a makeover (and doesn’t it look fantastic?).
Founded eight years ago by coeliac sufferer Emma Killilea the company has gone from strength to strength and has recently added a bunch of new products.
So what’s in the range and what did we try?
- Baking Mixes include Oaty Cookie Mix, Vanilla Sponge Mix and Chocolate Brownie Mix
- Bread Mixes include White Bread Mix and Brown Bread Mix
- Breakfast cereals include Purely Oaty Fruity Muesli, Oats, and Rice Flake Porridge
And we managed to get our hands on the White Bread Mix, Vanilla Sponge and Oats.
First up was the Vanilla Sponge Mix. Just open the packet, add eggs and butter – and, because I was feeling adventurous, a handful of raisins – then whack in the oven. And, wow, they came out beautifully. Light and spongy (natch). But also a really lovely rich flavour due to the bourbon vanilla extract. Success.
Next up was the White Bread Mix. Now, one of the best parts of this process was the amazing fresh bread smell that permeated the apartment when I took the tin out of the oven. I probably could have let it rise in a warm place a little longer. And I probably should have let it cool down a bit more before I dived in. But I couldn’t help it.
I can’t remember the last time I had warm, fresh bread. So this was a real treat. Lovely and crusty on the outside and soft and bouncy on the inside.
And the Oats? Well we’ve not even tried them yet. But on the website it says ‘perfectly heart-warming porridge in 3 minutes’ and we believe them.
