What will our baking mixes give you? Taste, texture and time.
TASTE & TEXTURE!!! I won’t release a product that already exists on the market unless I can improve on the taste and texture. Anyone who has tried gluten-free and keto food products/recipes will know the challenge behind a dessert that ticks both the taste and texture box. It’s hard to put into words so you’ll just have to try them yourself! I’ve definitely thrown out more than I’ve consumed over the years striving to get the taste & texture spot on. Anyone who has been, or is on, the same path will know exactly what I mean – things look appealing on the packs but once you try them they are totally different.
Although I myself have spent much time perfecting these mixes, you’ll get time back. Baking no longer requires you to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen to create a scrumptious homemade dessert that everyone will rave about. It’s gluten-free baking made easy.
Of course, we’ve worked super hard to ensure they are a cost-efficient choice and that the minimal add-ins can be altered to suit most dietary requirements or vegan guests.
My product boxes say we ‘positively impact hundreds of Australian families every day’ which is 100% true and one of the many reasons Melinda’s Gluten Free Goodies will always be manufactured in Australia. From the truck driver who delivers our ingredients, to the blenders, packers and companies who distribute our products every Melinda’s product you consume ensures jobs for Australians.
Why I created baking mixes
17 years ago there was a severe lack of good quality cake options in café cabinets. There was only ever the orange & almond or jaffa cake and I had loads of meetings at cafes so it became boring very quickly. Very frustrated I decided to gift my local café one of our family gluten-free Choc Mud Cakes and it sold for $7 a piece overnight and the café owner said ‘keep them coming!’ it just grew from there to a full café cake range and then morphed into the baking mixes.
Today, I thought I would share our baking mixes that came about from this realisation, the boredom of eating the same treats and wanting to create delicious goodies for those living an allergy-safe lifestyle.
