Remember those brownie bites from the other day? The inspiration for those adorable bite-sized brownies came with the recent arrival of my new favorite baking pan – a NordicWare tea cake pan! You see, Challenge Dairy contacted me a while back, not just to inform me of their delicious dairy products, but also to share with me some news about new items coming available. They sent me much more than I anticipated, so I would love to share the wealth with you! Let me tell you – after baking with that tea cake pan, I’m sold on NordicWare products. Anyone who bakes gluten-free on a regular basis knows just how sticky gluten-free batters can be. Not with this pan! Those brownie bites fell out of the pan without any sticking. What’s better – the pan doesn’t warp. It’s nice and sturdy, unlike so many of my other baking pans. I’m definitely going to have to add some more pans to my “wish” list.
Another contributor to those delicious brownie bites was the Challenge butter. I’m a big butter lover, and I appreciate that Challenge Dairy only puts “real” ingredients in their butter – just butter and salt. That’s it. No preservatives, stabilizers, fillers – nothing you can’t pronounce. I believe that Jamie Oliver, in his “Food Revolution”, mentioned that if you read a label and it sounds like a science experiment, put it back. If it sounds like something from your Grandma’s kitchen (cream, flour, sugar, salt), then it’s probably okay. (Forgive me if this is not an exact quote, I’m going off of memory here!) Good to know that there’s a butter out there that meets this criteria.
Because I love you guys, I opted to share a bit of the wealth with you. I’m giving away this totally adorable NordicWare pancake pan – perfect for making little pancakes for your family!
