Dassant Baking Mixes Giveaway

Gift Guide Pick

If you are like me, then in the past few weeks you have been baking up a storm.  I’m not a huge creative person in the kitchen, but at Christmas I do like to try a few new things.  I’d like to share some baking mixes with you that I received from a company called Dassant, that will allow you to make baked goods simply but still with a homemade taste.  I received the following three mixes as well as a Vanilla Bean Cake Mix to try, see what I made with them.  The scale in our home, inching upward, has made me put the Vanilla Bean mix on the shelf for now!

Ginger Gingerbread.

If you want real authentic tasting gingerbread without all the work, you just found it. Both my parents immigrated from Germany, and I love gingerbread, especially at Christmas time.  American gingerbread is good, but if you’ve ever had European gingerbread, you know that American gingerbread is a lot more mild.   The combination of the molasses, nutmeg and ginger, makes a spicy cookie like I haven’t tasted in years.  Of course little men don’t cut it in our house, we have to make them in the shape of the mouse!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake.

We’re not big cake eaters in our home, but some mouth watering cookies never get turned down. Why not take a cake mix to start your cookie dough off?  You could even add extras so as to make your cookies even more chocolatey.  This has been one of my favorite mixes to make cookies out of…delicious.  The chocolate chips in the mix really are enough to make a tasty cake, cookie or cupcake, but my family ‘begs’ for more chocolate so I added in a few more chocolate chips!

Classic Beer Bread.

It’s true that beer bread is one of the simplest things you can make.  There is no challenge, and it tastes amazingly good. For those of you who do not drink, no worries, the alcohol all gets baked off, and you end up with a thick bread which has a dense consistency.  One bottle/can of beer and the mix, stir it up a bit and bake for not quite an hour, and you have a tasty side to a bowl of soup or stew.  I actually make it in my bread machine, I put it on the dough cycle just long enough to combine the beer and mix, and then turn that off, and put it on the bake only for 60 minutes.  I so recommend this Dassant mix, it’s one of the best beer bread mixes I’ve ever used.  If your family doesn’t consume the whole loaf (which they might!), it’s also really tasty toasted, and then topped with butter and jam.  You can do so many things with this bread.

In my opinion Dassant mixes are worth purchasing, and the results you get from them are superb!  You can purchase Dassant mixes online at Amazon.com or directly from Dassant.com.  They have free shipping on all orders with the continental US and if you order by tomorrow (Dec 14/10), you will have your order by Christmas!
