Recently someone directed me to a gluten-free cinnamon roll recipe that used the flour mix from Better Batter, and the author raved so much about their products, I decided to buy some and test it out.
So let’s be honest: gluten-free is never as good as gluten-filled, particularly if you can still remember those blissful days of real bread (I can). Still, the Better Batter all-purpose flour mix is my new favorite. It contains pectin, which I’ve never seen before, and I think it must mimic the stick-together-ness of gluten better than even xanthan gum (which is also in there). Both of my gluten-eaters remarked—unprovoked!—on how awesome the cornbread I made with it was. It just results in a closer-to-the-real-stuff crumb, I think. Thumbs up from me.
They have a variety of products available in their online store, and they also have a rotating Deal of the Day, which is how I ended up trying the Pancake and Biscuit Mix in addition to the AP mix I bought. (I made biscuits per the box instructions, and they were… okay.) I can’t speak to their other offerings, but I can tell you I’m retiring my Pamela’s for Better Batter.
