I received some mixes from Mimi’s Mountain Mixes to try over the next few weeks. My friend Pam and I cook together often and I decided to bring two of the mixes to cook with her last week. I love having other’s sample review products and get their idea’s and opinions.
Since neither of our families are beer drinkers, we were lucky she has some beer in her fridge that the doctor told her husband to drink when his kidney’s were giving him problems.
The two mixes I brought were the Cornbread Mix and the Spice Cake Mix. All of Mimi’s Mountain Mixes require the addition of only one product, 12 ounces beer or 12 ounces carbonated soda.
Corn Beer Bread Mix
For the cornbread mix we decided to use 12 ounces beer. This is a savory cornbread mix. So easy to make, just mix with the beer and bake.
The product itself was fresh and well packaged. While baking the smell from the yeast in the beer was wonderful. We knew this was going to be good bread.
It was not too dense as some bread mixes can be. The crust was good and the inside of the bread was light. It tastes great. There were no leftovers. Yum! People will ask you for the recipe!
This is the tastiest box cornbread I’ve ever had. It still has the great taste and consistency of cornbread, but its got just a hint of sweetness. It was a big hit with family and friends. The whole bunch wanted seconds. It had a smooth texture, and was not grainy.
This cornbread will put a smile on your face!
Cinnamon Spice Beer Coffee Cake
Next we fixed the spice cake for after supper with coffee. We decided to use Ginger Ale in this one. As with the cornbread, we mixed 12 ounces ginger ale with the mix and put it in the oven to bake.
This was a really great cake mix that, for me, tastes better than the store brand spice cake mixes, it has this delicious fall spice flavor to it. There’s nothing like a taste of fall on a cool summer evening with coffee.
Quick and delicious dessert. My husband wants me to order more of this mix and try adding peaches. He said it would make a great peach cobbler.
We were well pleased with both mixes and plan to cook more of them soon. I’ll be reviewing them on the blog when we do.
