A new gluten free carrot muffin mix from Incognito cakes.

New to baking?  Not a problem! using this incognito muffin mix, instructions are very simple and the end products are delicious.

Firstly empty contents of mix into a mixing bowl and add 3 eggs and 170ml of vegetable oil. I am not dairy intolerant so prefer to use melted butter. Another option might be coconut oil, will try that next time.

Then add 3 medium sized grated carrots and stir in.

spoon the mixture into the cases provided, I had enough muffin mixture for an extra one, result!

The muffin mixture then goes in a pre heated oven for 15 – 20 mins 

Image

check they are cooked by lightly touching the top of a muffin it should feel quite bouncy. Cool on a wire rack and wait. We struggled, Mr S ate his before it was completely cool. He loved it and he is a gluten eater.

Loved the texture and subtle cinnamon and nutmeg flavour, the grated carrot was still visible which I really liked. I think I will top my next muffin with a cream cheese and icing sugar topping, which I think would work well.

Incognito cakes hope to launch these mixes soon, to find out more click here

gluten free, dairy free coconut muffin mix from Incognito cakes

Yesterday I tested a new muffin mix from award winning Incognito cakes based in Ripley Derbyshire UK.

The mix is gluten, wheat and dairy free and the instructions were very easy to follow.

Image

Firstly I combined the mix provided with the 3oz butter and the 2 eggs.

I used butter as I do not have an intolerance to dairy.

Image

Once stirred together it had the consistency of a batter. I used a spoon to fill the muffin cases. I choose to fill big cases so made 5 rather than the 6 it would normally make. As the photo shows Im not the neatest baker!

Image

This all only took a few minutes. I had pre heated my fan oven to 180c so I could then quickly pop them in the oven.

Image

Just over 15mins later I was treated to the sight and smell of these delicious coconut muffins, beautifully golden brown.

ImageI left them to cool for a few minutes, not easy as I wanted to jump straight in!

Image

The coconut muffins were delicious light with a crispy outside edge very spongy. I would say more cake like than muffin but I prefer that. The smell of coconut filled my kitchen but the taste was more subtle. My family tried them too, giving them a thumbs up. Both agreed with me about the lightness and lovely flavour.

Check out kickstart here and read about what Incognito cakes are hoping to achieve.

They hope to produce cake mixes for chocolate cake, carrot muffins, coconut muffins, plain muffins, and limited edition chilli and chocolate muffins.

Cannot wait for these mixes to be available.
