I have long been a fan of Katz’s Gluten-Free delicious baked goods so when they asked me to sample their new frosted chocolate cupcakes and vanilla rugelach – it took about two seconds for me to say “yes”. Oh, and they are graciously giving me one of their fabulous sampler packs to give away to one lucky reader. All you need to do is send me an e-mail and you’ll be entered. Enter by December 31, 2010.
Katz’s is also giving away a fantastic grand raffle prize of one of every product they make. You can enter right on their site – just be sure to tell them Gluten Free Mike sent you in the referred by field. The winner will be drawn January 3rd. What better way to start 2011 than with a fabulous cache of gluten-free goodies. If you just cannot wait and want to place an order they are even offering free shipping on orders over $30 – nice.
So now the reviews…
The chocolate frosted cupcakes arrived in perfect condition. The cupcakes were wonderfully moist and you could really taste the cocoa without being overly sweet. Each cupcake was enrobed in a right chocolate frosting and half-covered in colored sprinkles. Even my non-Celiac other half raved about these.
The vanilla rugelach was every bit as good as their other flavors but had a delicate note of vanilla that really allowed the pastry to shine. The crisp layers of rich buttery pastry are absolutely out of this world and you would never know they are gluten-free – but thankfully they are. These too are perfectly sweet so you can enjoy the complex flavors of the baked good themselves.
You really cannot go wrong with Katz’s baked goods and if you miss Challah bread – Katz’s is the absolute best I have come across. So, thanks to my friends at Katz Gluten-Free Bakery for making this holiday season and New Year so sweet.
