Mrs O’s Glutenfree & Eggfree Melt in Your Mouth Biscuit Mix Review
Mrs O’s Glutenfree & Eggfree Melt in Your Mouth Biscuit Mix makes buttery, crumbly biscuits with no fuss, no complicated equipment and in absolutely no time at all! Just add lemon zest and dairyfree margarine for perfect freefrom biscuits everytime! Dairyfree, Eggfree, Glutenfree, Nutfree & Vegan.
Mrs O’s Fuss Free Mixes were founded to provide safe, allergy friendly but easy to use baking mixes so noone need miss out on cake again. They contain only ‘high quality vegan, organic and natural ingredients’ and are free from additives and preservatives. We loved Mrs O’s Egg Free & Gluten Free Vanilla Cake Mix and it was a great way for us to navigate glutenfree baking when both Ginger Peachick and my GF bestie were first diagnosed as having an issue with gluten. The cake mixes are even available for wholesale and have been used very successfully at Elodie’s old Preschool for baking activities!
So really I didn’t need asking twice when Mrs O got in touch asking if we would review their new Mrs O’s Glutenfree & Eggfree Melt in Your Mouth Biscuit Mix. I do love a biscuit, especially those lovely crumbly ones that literally melt in your mouth. They must also be great for dunking!
But what did we think of Mrs O’s Glutenfree Eggfree Melt in Your Mouth Biscuits?
Can you really make beautiful FreeFrom biscuits, without weird ingredients, that don’t taste like a bowl of sugar and have the texture of a sand tray?
Absolutely 100% Yes.
These biscuits really do Melt in Your Mouth. They are crumbly, buttery and even stand up to a little dunking – so, so GOOD!
But don’t take my word for it – I mean I know The Peas love a baked treat but they literally devoured these biscuits. And while the other two used words like Yum, delicious and tasty, Millie simply tried to work out if she could fit them in her mouth whole!
The Peas were quite made up with the special pretty packaging Mrs O sent their mix in. It made me think that actually these mixes would make a really great present for any occasion!
Fuss Free Mixes?
These really are.
Fuss. Free. Mixes.
They make glutenfree, vegan baking so incredibly easy that literally anyone could do it. Its basically 3 ingredients that you ‘bung’ together in a bowl, roll the dough into balls and bake. 15minutes, packet to biscuits! No complicated ingredients, just add dairyfree margarine (or normal butter if you can eat it) and whatever flavour you like. Mrs O knows The Peas love lemon so suggested the zest of one lemon for them! You can squeeze the juice into some icing sugar to make a zingy icing to drizzle over the top when the biscuits are cool. YUM!
Honestly it really is that simple! No special equipment required either – a bowl, a wooden spoon, baking tray (& a little elbow grease if you forget to soften the margarine first!) The Peas managed on their own (with a little help with the oven), making these a great option for baking with the kids if you are really not that comfortable in the kitchen but want to give it a go. Or like hubby, struggle with mobility with your hands. The dough is so beautifully, soft and easy to bring together that even on a difficult day hubby could bung the ingredients in a bowl and make biscuits.
My only niggle with this is that you need 225g of margarine and I tend to use baking blocks for biscuits as they give a more butter like finish. They tend to come in 250g blocks, like butter, so a slight tweak to quantities of dry mix in the packet to use a whole block would pretty much eliminate the need for scales completely – making the mixes even easier to use. (And not leave a random wedge of baking marg in my fridge door!) But I’m being picky!
Flavour how you like!
Like I said, Mrs O knows we love a lemony bake around here, so she suggest adding lemon zest to the dough. I added the zest of the whole lemon and the biscuits were like little bites of sunshine! But you could use whatever flavour you wanted. Add some cocoa powder alongside some dried sour cherries & chocolate chunks for a Wintery treat. How about making a batch of good old ginger nuts by adding a little ground ginger to the dried ingredients? Or just chuck in a handful of good old chocolate chips for a crowd pleasing batch of cookies! Its entirely up to you!
The mixes say they make 24 biscuits when using a tsp of dough for each biscuit. I made a batch of 12 as per the instructions and put the rest of the dough in the fridge for later. The next day the dough was just as soft and easy to work with and we used it to make thumb print biscuits. Basically you roll the dough into balls, arrange on a lined baking tray and then get the kids to push their thumb into the middle of the ball. Into the hole you can then spoon jam, chocolate spread, nut butter or just wedge in a chunk of chocolate. And then bake! We made ours half with strawberry jam and half with Moo Free Chocolate chunks.
**I was sent this cake mix for the purposes of this review but all opinions are mine – and the Peachicks & they are definitely not backward in coming forward about what they like!**
