I was online looking for mix in bulk and came across Pillsbury's retail bakers site. You can buy their mix in 50 lb boxes, and it goes by the name Baker's Plus. Anyone ever tried it? Wondering how it compares to the taste of the small boxes.
Wow, never heard of it but I sure do want to hear what others think. I only use Pillsbury for my white cakes and then Dr. them up.
Hopefully this bump will catch someone's attention who has tried it.
By the way what's the website address or can you post the link?
Hey- I found it at pillsburybakery.com. I think that 50 lb. boxes is the smallest amount you can buy, and then based on your distributor, there is a minimum order.
I've used it at work ( wholesale baking company ). It's ok . Texture is a little less downy than a single box, but you usually lose a bit of that in volume mixes. Not a bad product for a mix.
Yeah, I was worried it may be different. They said that there's already powdered eggs in it which I'm not too sure about. They're sending me some to experiment with next week before I buy anything.
We used it in school. I think it was like any other box mix. Now the very worst part. If your going to mix the whole bag, get a boat oar. LOL. Scraping the bottom of the bowl is nasty. You will be up to yuor elbow in batter.
Ha- thanks for the warning. I'm going to have to divide the recipe...my mixer is not nearly big enough!
The 50# will fill up a 60qt mixer. So I hope your in at least a 30. You will still need a loooooooooong spatula for the bottom. . If I remember right ( which I doubt) LOL. The 50# will do on the plus side of 30 9" rounds
Thanks for the info! That helps a lot.
