I tried carbquick once waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when....2005 maybe? I used it a few times. To me, it had a sour flavor. I used maybe half a bag just because I remember it being pricey and not wanting to just toss it.

I feel if I do 1/2 of each, the texture is so much better.

I think you will have to try them and not go on what others taste.
I agree. My daughter who doesn't even do low carb would choose the carbquik pancakes over the traditional ones when I made them for my family. I use carbquik to bread things. I do not use much of it so it lasts a long time. I use Jennifer Eloff's bake mix primarily. I use her original one a bit more than her gluten free one. I have in the past used KevinPA's mixes with carbquik and those were amazing but kinda backed off since this required so many ordered ingredients.

I was a constant (and successful) baker in my prior way of eating, and it has been a tough change over. I ordered a box of carbquick hoping for a good answer. I tried the brownies, and they came out horribly "sour" and bad tasting. The biscuits were semi-ok, but really dry. I have been really disappointed in it. Since I spent almost 12 bucks on the box, I will try a few more things, but I really can't afford to be using ingredients on yet more bad recipes.

I'm in the icky camp. But I think its one of those things that you have to try for yourself to see if you will like it. Some people hate it, but some people love it.

I don't use CQ or Carbalose anymore as I'm off wheat totally. But when I used them, I found mixing them with some of Jen Eloff's bake mixes eliminated the "funky" taste totally. I usually used about 3 parts of Jen's mix to 1 part CQ or Carbalose. The resulting bakedk goods were consistently tasty with good "crumb".

I don't mind either one -- but heed the advice upthread. Don't use the stuff like you would Bisquick. The recipes on the back of the box aren't so great in my opinion. Better to surf this board and use recipes that combine carbquick/carbalose with other flours and some flavors/spices. That's where I've had the best results.

We're all so different, aren't we!!

I made a dessert today with Atkin's bake mix and it turned out awesome. I vastly prefer it to Carbquick. I have a whole box here that I don't know what to do with.
