April 18, 2019Reviewer: Kelechi in Texas* I had seen some good reviews about the snack cake and I've used the cookie mix which I liked.
However, Good Dee's needs to recalibrate this recipe. I remember adding the "fake" lupin flour (the flour bought at Walmart that contains lupin, rice and another flour but marketed as lupin flour...but I digress) to the cookie mix because after following the instructions, the cookie mix looked too oily!
When I added my half cup of melted butter to this mix, I was immediately horrified at how oily it looked. I proceeded to bake it for the entire 24 minutes of the 18-24 range. It still seemed very jiggly, but when I dipped a knife in it and all I got was oil, I panicked. I cut out a little piece and put it on a paper towel and squeezed...I immediately knew I couldn't I couldn't consume this product.
I put the already baked but completely soft and gooey blonde back in the mixing bowl. I added real lupin flour and the bean taste was overwhelming so then I added unsweetened cocoa powder to cancel the bean flavor. Finally, I pressed it flat on parchment paper and baked it at 360 deg for 15 minutes.
My recommendation, use 1/4 cup of butter/oil to start otherwise you'll get a fat bomb instead of a blondie.
January 16, 2019Reviewer: Nancy in Ohio* These were easy to make but did not taste good. They were bland and weird fake minty sweet on the bottom of the blondies. I put them in a gallon sized baggie after cooled and they tasted a little better... not enough to ever make me purchase again.
