I am pleased to say that none of my family are gluten intolerant. However, my boys have friends that are. I therefore agreed to test out some products from Udi's. They have a range of biscuits, breads, crisps and cake mixes. They really are worth knowing about if you have a gluten free diet or know someone that does.
We started our afternoon tea with finger sandwiches. The bread was much dryer than regular bread. Having spoken to a friend who is gluten intolerant this is pretty standard. Personally I preferred the white bread to the multiseed.
We then tried the gluten free cupcakes and wafers. I had made the cupcakes myself using a sponge cake mix. They were simple to make and tasted nice. The lemon wafers were lovely and definitely worth buying.
You can't have an afternoon tea without tea and scones. These were lovely and I used a recipe provided by Udi's to make these. They are whiter than I was expecting but they tasted just as good as any other scone I have eaten.
To make them you will need:300g Udi's Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour mix1tsp baking powder 75g butterA pinch of salt 175ml warned milk2 tablespoons of caster sugar1 eggPre heat your oven to 200C In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt and butter Rub until it resembles bread crumbs Add the sugar and warmed milk Knead the dough until smooth Cut out the scones with a cookie cutter Brush with egg Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with cream, jam and a nice cuppa!
Do you know anyone that these gluten free products would be good for?We were sent the products for the purpose of the post but the opinions are my own. You can find more gluten free recipes here.
