ISO: Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Bisquik


Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried this gluten-free product?   And more to the point, does anyone know which Ontario grocery stores might carry it?  Ed has tried a few Peterborough grocery stores with no luck so far.  

 

(Yes, I'm living gluten-free in the hopes it might help with the Lyme disease.  And while I'm fine making most gluten-free dishes, I thought I'd like to try the gluten-free Bisquik product.  Haven't used Bisquik for 61 years, ever since I discovered that I could make biscuits on my own.)

 

Or any other gluten-free quick bread/biscuit for that matter.  

 

Thanks.

 

Added:  Head Office in Superstore  said they are out of stock.

I just looked on the Betty Crocker site and there are 8 different ones.  I'm assuming you are looking for the one labeled gluten free?

Good heavens.  Yes.  Duh.  That was my whole point.  Thanks.

If any of your supermarkets have the Pamela’s brand gf baking mixes, they’re decent. Sadly, nothing is as good as plain old wheat flour.

Found Pamela's gf products at a local health food store.  Might go and look at them next week.  Thanks.

We've had requests for GF biscuits before, and I've had decent results with the Bob's Red Mill Biscuit and Baking mix, if you can find that in your area.  Or buy online.  Good luck!  I hope it helps!

@Darienne  I was at Farm Boy today and they have Bob's Red Mill Biscuit and Baking Mix.  They have a store on Lansdowne Road.  Maybe see if they carry it?

 

Gluten free, that is.

One small problem here, Elsie.  The Farm Boy you go to may not be the same Farm Boy as the one in Peterborough which is not part of the Farm Boy chain.  We've been to the Farm Boy in Kingston and it's a lovely big store.  The Peterborough Farm Boy is definitely not big or lovely.  However, I know of some stores which do carry Bob's Red Mill this and that.  I'll check it out.  I'm just not ready to face making my own flour mixes at this point.

You are right, and I think you mentioned that before.  Sorry.

Just saw this.

If there's a Sobeys anywhere within range, they stock the GF Bisquick in their natural/health foods section. Of course, your Superstore may now have it back in stock as well.

Just saw this as well - heard good things about this mix, want to grab one and try it for my kiddos (one has Celiac).

 

I can second Bob's red mill products, their cornbread is excellent (GF).

 

Will have to check out the Sobeys in the area....

OK.  I'll get the cornbread mix also.   Ed does all the grocery now so I have to put it on the list.

Might I suggest also adding some grated cheese to the mixture (I also did one rendition with smoked jalapenos)
