Ready to Bake Liquid Baking Batters

In France, sweet treats have been an important part of holiday traditions for centuries, and this season, home cooks in America can impress their holiday guests by incorporating a new product from esteemed French dessert maker PrePat’33 into their Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year menus.

Filled with wholesome real ingredients, READY TO BAKE LIQUID BATTERS are inspired by actual French recipes. The handy pouches keep for up to a year in your cupboard and bake in 10 – 25 minutes, depending on which delicious treat you prepare. And the best part—no additional ingredients are needed. Simply pour the READY TO BAKE batter into a cake pan or muffin tin, and bake.

Serve up one of these gourmet treats this holiday season—we dare your guests to detect that they’re not scratch-made!

* Caramel Salted Butter Lava Cake: Based on a traditional French recipe; contains gourmet salt from Brittany.
* Chocolate Lava Cake: Rich, decadent, ooey-gooey goodness.
* Chocolate Cake: Indulgent and loaded with real cocoa.
* Brownies: Bakes in about 25 minutes. A French take on an American classic.
* Gluten-free Brownies: Just because it’s gluten-free doesn’t mean it can’t be delicious!
* Blueberry Muffins: Bakes in about 25 minutes. Loaded with real blueberries.
My Thoughts: I love to bake and I primarily bake from scratch. One of the reasons I was a scratch baker was because I could never find pre-packaged baking mixes that tasted as good as homemade until now! After sampling the Ready to Bake Liquid Batters...I've completely have changed my mind!

For this review I received complimentary packages of the Blueberry Muffins, Brownies and the Chocolate Lava Cake to try out for all of you. One of the things that immediately impressed me about these baking mixes is that you need absolutely no other ingredients! The liquid batter is in a squeeze pouch and you simply open it up, put it into your prepared pan and bake according to directions. These things are fabulous for RV travelers like me because we can now bake on-the-road without having to drag along a ton of supplies and ingredients.
The first one that my family tried out was the Ready to Bake Lava Cakes. We decided to pour the batter into a muffin tin and fill the cavities about 1/2 full. We baked according to directions and once they were done...we left them cool for a few minutes and then dug-in. These are delicious when eaten warm. You can eat them all on their own or top them with some vanilla ice cream, frozen whipped topping or even a creamy yogurt spread. Delicious! These didn't last long!

A few days later we whipped up the Ready to Bake Blueberry Muffin Mix. One of the things that really impressed me with this one was the size of the blueberries! One of the reasons I always stayed clear of pre-packaged muffin mixes was because the fruit was always super miniature in size. Well, not with Ready to Bake muffin mixes! These blueberry muffins were moist and flavorful. Just be prepared though...this is a very thick and gooey batter. I had to spoon it into my muffin cups...but other than that, it's fabulous!
If chocolate lave cakes are a tad too sweet for you but yet...you love chocolate, I highly recommend you try out the Ready to Bake Brownies! You can make them in a brownie pan or a muffin pan. (I like using muffin pans and filling the cavities 1/2 way when I make brownies b/c it makes the perfect sized portions. These chocolate brownies have a moist cake-like texture to them. They're not a "wet" brownie and I really enjoyed these!

I can honestly tell you that my entire family enjoyed all three of these Ready to Bake Liquid Batter Baking Mixes! I am going to look for this brand in stores near me and pick up several of them to have on hand. Plus...when we get the RV out again next summer...you bet, I'll be taking these baking mixes on the road with me. Absolutely fantastic!
