I wanted to believe this was going to be a great addition to my low carb world. I purchased 3 thinking I better get them while they are discounted. Mostly try to use them as a pancake mix and in that capacity I found the texture gritty and difficult to work with plus the added minus that the flavor was not all that great. Now I mix some of this product with Bisquick. which is reliable and together I get better results but no longer the advantage from using this product alone. Something like half and half, plus eggs. Atkins recipe for making pancakes is a little quirky and it must be because of the nature of this mix. I wanted to like it very much but no dice. I was also very curious to their pasta that was and has been released on the same date as this product. I have yet to attempt to use it in other ways but let's just say it is not top priority. I give All Purpose Baking Mix a sad 2 Stars. Obviously the magic I was hoping for did not materialize itself on real tine.
I use my atkins cookbooks for baked goods religiously. I love having this baking mix available again. It has great recipe flexibility for replacing flour in baked goods. I love how well it seals and keeps for freshness in between uses too. It is a low carb staple of mine.
I was pleasantly surprised at the taste and texture of goods baked with this mix. I tried Atkins bake mix when it was first introduced many years ago and hated it. I don't know if it has been reformulated or if my tastes have changed, but this time around I really liked it.
I've given it four stars as it is not a complete bake mix since it doesn't have fat or leavening added. It is a low carb flour substitute and does well in most recipes as long as you add fat and leavening and a bit more liquid than regular high-carb recipes call for.
Nicely pleased. I was a little skeptical about his product. I have used this for pancakes, waffles, breading and making quick breads. A good change from biscuick for those who are watching our carbs. Gives a nice texture with no aftertaste at all.
I can't say I'm absolutely crazy about this mix, but I have found some recipes that I do like. I am a true southern girl, and I fry fish with this mix. It comes out crispy and delicious. I do make the pancake recipe. No comparison to the real deal......of course. However, I use Polanders sugar free jelly and it makes for a good breakfast. I made the bread recipe. That was good. Best way to enjoy it is right out of the oven with some butter.
So far I have made only pancakes. The recipe given is impossible; not nearly enough liquid. After considerable thinning it did make the 10 or more pancakes described. There was little flavor and the odor of soy flour was overpowering. I would have given this zero stars, but I will try to use it for another baked item and hope for the best.
