I personally love the Betty Crocker Bisquick Gluten Free Pancake and Baking Mix. The only down side is the small but pricey box, 16oz will cost you a bit more than 4 dollars. This product passed the ultimate test; our house guests didn’t notice they were eating gluten free pancakes.
A few weeks ago several friends of my son were sleeping over. During breakfast and after eating a stack of pancakes it dawned on one of them that our house is gluten free. He then asked if the pancakes were gluten free and continued to eat another stack. I went through two boxes of mix that day so in my book this mix is a true winner.
Just last week I tried a different gluten free pancake mix developed by Maple Grove Farms of VT. It was a dollar cheaper than the Bisquick and I do like several products produced by this company so I wanted to give their pancake mix a try. Sad to say I didn’t like the pancakes. I felt the pancakes had an odd taste, I think this was due to the soy flour in the mix but I can’t be sure all I know is my taste buds were not happy. I would describe the pancakes as somewhat heavy and while chewing had what I would describe as a dry texture. I had only one pancake from the stack and won’t be buying this mix again.
The old saying; “you get what you pay for” rings true for me in this battle of flap jacks. I will gladly pay more for a mix that no one can tell the pancakes are gluten free.
