One of the cool products I recently got to try was Kember’s Gluten Free. Kember’s was at the Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest in Austin, TX and I am so glad they were there. I got the chance to meet Marilyn, owner of Kember’s. She is super nice, friendly, and knowledgeable about the products she developed. They have a variety of mixes that include: pizza crust, crepes, pumpkin bread (which is clove free), donuts (which I sampled at the expo), waffles and oh course, brownies. I recently made the brownies for “Family Dinner Night.” I thought it would be nice to have a freshly made dessert, and who doesn’t like, or in my case love, freshly made brownies?
The mix does not require many additional ingredients to make the brownies, so that was a plus. I made these at my mom’ s house since we had dinner there. To be honest the brownies may not have made it to Mom’s if I made them at my house. So I ran home, grabbed the needed ingredients and baking pan. Or at least what I thought was the needed pan. You see, it calls for a 9×9 pan, I grabbed a 12×9 by mistake. More on that later.
So I started by mixing all the wet ingredients together first and then added the mix. I thought it might be easier that way. You can omit the egg yolk and reduce the cooking time for a more fudge like brownie, I will try that next time. The mix is a fine powder, that has a very wonderful smell. Once you have incorporate the mix to the wet ingredients it makes a pretty thick batter. I enlisted the help of a spatula to ensure I got all of the brownie goodness out of the bowl.
Now, you are suppose to place the batter into a 9×9 pan, greased. I had grabbed a 12×9, so my batter made thin brownies. The edges were chewy, and not as moist as the center ones. I think it was due to the pan. They were still very yummy. My mom said they were very similar to a name brand mix, which is her favorite. My dad, who usually will not eat anything I make that is gluten-free because he has had a few bad cakes when I was first going GF, came back for seconds. The non-gfbf thought they were the best ones we have had as well. I obviously like them, or I would not be writing this. The only thing I wish I would have done different, besides grabbing the correct sized pan, is adding nuts to the brownies. However, these brownies are great with any extras, such as nuts. Let’s face it, we all know of a mix or two that needs help and we end up adding extras to make them tasty. Kember’s does not need extras to make them tasty. Kember’s brownies are delicious!
They are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Soy Free. Along with being non-gmo. They are manufactured in a facility that uses tree nuts, soy, eggs, and milk. The nutritional information isn’t too bad considering that these are brownies and gluten free. You can find them on Kember’s website here. They also have a list of places you can find their mixes on their website, which includes Amazon and yes they are on prime. They also have some recipes on the site. OH, be sure to check them out on social media outlets as well. On Twitter they are @kembersGF and on Facebook they are Kember’s Gluten Free, they also have a Pintrest page. I’ll be repinning them shortly as well.
If you get a chance to try one or all of their mixes you shouId! I know I will be finding the doughnut mix soon (Mmmm….doughnuts!). That last brownie wasn’t left there for long, it was eaten shortly after I snapped that picture.
I can not wait to share the other Kember’s Gluten Free products as I try them! I am sure they will be just as tasty as the brownies!
