Product Recommendation: Betty Crocker Gingerbread Mix

Some of you may be thinking I'm a month or so late with this post, and I admit: those some have a point.

For the record, I did write a post about gingerbread in that most gingerbready of seasons. But since the weather here is only beginning to get frightful, it's still a great time of year for warm, spicy cake, fresh out of the oven.

And that's what I made this afternoon.

My oh my was it good.

I don't usually do product recommendations, but in this case I have to make an exception. Here's why.
  1. The mix only requires water and 1 egg. (True confession time: I was out of eggs, and so substituted an egg-sized dollop of mayonnaise.)
  2. The directions call for mixing it together right in the baking pan. No extra dishes to wash! LOVE!
  3. The smell was heavenly, and the gingerbread is moist, flavorful, soft, spicy, and tender.
It almost literally could not be easier. And I don't mean virtually. I mean literally.

I think this mix is going to become a pantry staple. Not only is it great for whipping together something warm and sweet on a snowy, blowy day, I'm already thinking up ways it could be glammed up when I need an easy to prepare dessert  to complete a meal I've fussed over for friends.

Give it a try. You just might love it.
