Ethel’s Edibles Gluten Free Desserts

I recently received two beautifully wrapped (and complimentary) packages of gluten free Blondies and Pecan Dandys from Ethel’s Edibles to sample and review. Ethel’s Edibles is a gluten free bakery in Michigan, founded by Jill Bommarito and inspired by her grandmother, Ethel (hence the name of the bakery).

Unfortunately, we could not personally try the products due to the dairy, egg and corn ingredients so I had a friend of mine play taste tester on my behalf and I will share her thoughts with you in just a moment, but first here are the ingredients:

Hot Blondie IngredientsButter, Gluten-Free Flour Blend (Expandex Modified Tapioca Starch, potato starch, corn starch, corn flour, white rice flour, xanthan gum), brown sugar, milk chocolate chips (sugar, unsweetened chocolate, whole milk powder, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla) eggs, vanilla, baking powder, salt.

Pecan Dandy Ingredients: Butter, brown sugar, pecans, Gluten-Free Flour Blend (Expandex modified tapioca starch, potato starch, corn starch, corn flour, white rice flour, xanthan gum), honey, sugar, eggs, heavy cream, pure vanilla extract, baking powder, salt.

Note: The treats I received from Ethel’s Edibles took a beating during shipping to my very hot (over 100° F) and very dry state (it hasn’t rained here in at least 2 months), so the pictures aren’t great but from the care that went into the pretty packaging, I can imagine that what I received was not how they the looked when they left the bakery.

My friend Angie thought the Pecan Dandys were decadent and rich and anyone who likes pecans would probably enjoy these…but a few bites go a long way (as in, they’re really rich) and they would probably go over better during the fall and winter when one is more inclined to eat heavier foods.

Angie also also thought the Blondies had good flavor but the texture was dry and crumbly (perhaps they dried out during shipping?).

Since this is a somewhat awkward review, I encourage you to read the reviews from some of my fellow bloggers so you can get a more well rounded idea of Ethel’s Edibles gluten free desserts:

  1. Gluten-free desserts are so difficult to keep "fresh." Maybe that's why it was dry. I usually stick to raw vegan desserts instead. They stay moist and delicious. The pecan dandies look like they were that way.

  2. Thanks for including my link! I really enjoyed the Pecan Dandys, but maybe because I love rich foods. I also enjoyed the Blondies and didn't get the dried out part – but maybe because I got mine locally. Great job being honest.
