Okay... I just tried Carbquik dumplings. They are quite good. Not exactly like bisquik, but that's okay! I used a different box of the Carbquik this time.

They had a slightly different texture than the BQ (Bisquik) ones. I made two pots- side by side - one with CQ and one with BQ. They looked completely different, the liquid in the BQ one was very milky, where as the CQ was still clear.

Overall, I am happy, I will make it again and would definitely reccomend the recipe. Give it a try!

(I didn't add the "pinch of salt" in the recipe.)

Re: Aedie

I had the same problem you had with the salty taste. I just got my order Friday and today I made biscuits and the Impossible Coconut pie.

The biscuits had a salty taste and I did not add any salt as per the recipe. Now I am very salt sensitive and when I eat salty foods inside my mouth will break out in welts. When I bit into the biscuit I tasted the salt immediately and broke out in fine welts about a minute later.

After reading the posts I think the salty taste is only distinguishable to people like us that have a aversion to salt. It happens to me all the time. I will say something is salty and everybody else eating it will say it isn't and they actually add more salt.

The coconut pie though was very good and I didn't detect the salt taste. I think that is due to the presence of sugar added to the mix. The next time I make the biscuits I'm going to add a very tiny amount of Splenda and see if that helps.

But the thing is, I am not senistive to salt at all, I am the one who will continue to pour on the salt even if everyone else thinks it's fine!

But I made dumplings, they were fine. It may have just been a bad batch.

Good Luck!

Hi Chefgreg..

What I was saying..about the BQ and the CQ..is that I have
better luck when I use a regular recipe..(not a BQ recipe)..and
substitute the Carbquik for the flour...in it..which means adding
extra fat that may not be included in the BQ recipe.. I knew
you weren't yelling at me..LOL..

Of course, that's just my personal experience..and we are all
learning how to bake with this and have a good result..so
thanks for your patience..

And the Apple Walnut Cake is wonderful.. and the Cream Cheese Cookies are great, too..but I just subbed Carbquik
for the flour with great success...

CarolynF,

I'd say you have had success!

I made your Cream Cheese Cookies with my Dad today while visiting at his house and OMG they are the real deal! He asked me who's recipe we made and I told him CarolynF's, I reminded him that the Apple Walnut Cake was CarolynF's also. He replied "Man, she is good!" and I agree wholeheartedly!

Thank you for posting and keep em' coming.

I was asked where I get my carbquik since I live in Japan. I order from netrition.com just like everyone else! Thankfully they ship via Priority Mail to FPO addresses or it would take months to get here.

Had dinner at a local Mexican restaurant over the weekend.

I had fajitas, my daughter had the chile rellenos, which appeared to be a poblano pepper stuffed with cheese and sausage and rolled in some kind of dough wrapper and baked.

Any ideas on how I would make these at home using Carbquick?


Thanks! Barefoot

I love Chile Rellenos! I have a hard time finding them here in Wisconsin the way I like them. I think Carbquik would work well with them! Thanks for the idea! I roast and peel the poblano, then make a small slit, and remove the seeds, leaving the stem, so I have something to hold on to. Then I stuff them with shredded mozzerella (because it is cheap, but good - jack or Mexican cheese is good also) You could add the sausage too if you want - I like to add a little chopped onion. Then roll the peppers in the Carbquik (flour) to coat. Then I take eggs and seperate them from the yolk. I don't know how many eggs I use, maybe 4-6 for a dozen rellenos. Beat the egg whites until stiff, then add the yolks in. Roll the Carbquik coated peppers in the egg white mixture, and fry in an inch or so of heated oil until browned. I love these! Now if I can think of a way to make tamales!

There is a tamale recipe on this board somewhere. It is by Tatarhead I'm not sure if it is on this section or in the recipe room. Just search for tamales in both. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll find it in my cookbooks and post it. I haven't tried it, but most of the things Tatarhead posts are great. Julie

Spice cake!!!!

Yum! I made the recipe for crumb cake (on the recipe board.)

However I did make a few changes, I don't like coconut, so I didn't use the topping. And I added into the cake batter 1/2 teaspoon each of allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg.

When the cake was done (at 28 minutes...it cooked faster than the recipe suggested) I made my own cream cheese, cream, splenda, butter icing and drizzled it over the top.

I think this cake makes a great base for any cake! I think I will try a carrot cake version next.

Those recipes sound great..

You know..on making a crisp cookie..I'm not sure that is possible
with Carbquik and our sweeteners..Maybe our buddy Chefgreg
can help us out with making a crisp sugar cookie..

Erin: Your dad is so sweet..thank him for the compliment.

Wonderful, thank you ChefGreg. I made a rum cake every year for tons of friends, but it calls for a yellow cake, and pastacio pudding. The rest I could probably figure out. Any thoughts on the yellow cake mix?

Now I've made pancakes, sausage gravy and biscuits, turkey pot pie, impossible apple pie, impossible lasagnae pie, and a sort of individual decadent chocolately treat to cure a craving. Everything has been great, except we didn't like the turkey pot pie that well, but everything else has been just incredible, and such a treat.

This is my first post on this forum! Hi! I've been following this thread while waiting for my *first* order of carbquik to arrive and trying to decide what I'd make first!

After being on Atkins WOE for the past year...I was READY for it to arrive!

I LOVE IT! I got out my bisquick cookbook, and made the "easy drop danish, using SF blackberry jam, and substituted heavy cream for the milk, and of course Splenda for the sugar!

YUM. And again, YUM. The entire family loved them. I think I liked them better than I did with the bisquick!

Tomorrow I'm going to make an impossible cheeseburger pie for supper!

I am so looking forward to being able to have chicken and dumplings this winter.

I do have to say that I feel like I have been a total cheat tonight.
This doesn't feel right. I feel like I'll get on the scale tomorrow and see I'm up 5 pounds for eating a danish!

I hope it's ok to link to this web site, this is where all the recipes from the makers of Carbquik are.

Thanks Tom,

Boy do I feel stupid

By the way Tom, will Netrition be getting the Chip's Chips 0 gram Cheese Thins back in anytime soon? I have been waiting for a while to place my order in hopes that they would be restocked.

Thanks,
