If I knew you were coming (Baking) Review by Mel – January 2019

I was so happy when this box arrived from If I knew you were coming, as I must admit we are only half way into the month and I am fed up of fruit and veg already. I would like to thank Chris and his Team for restoring some balance into my life. We all need to treat ourselves, and this is one subscription that is Naughty & Nice rolled into one.

I broke into song when I first looked over their Website, I mean it is a song after all. If I knew you were coming I’d have baked a Cake! I know you are all now singing that tune because of me.

The box arrived through my letterbox, it was obvious what it was as there was a sticker with their logo on.

I actually had to wait a whole day to unbox this, I honestly don’t know how I coped. You can watch back my live unboxing either on our Facebook Group, or now on our YouTube Channel below…

So what is inside?

  • Flour Mix
  • Sugar Mix
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Chocolate
  • Recipe Card
  • Parchment Sheet

The kit makes 16 squares in a 23 x 23cm baking tin. The bags are also fully compostable which really is great, I went and fished them out of the bin and into the food caddy as soon as I realised.

We have kindly been gifted an exclusive FREE COOKIE KIT!

Enough talking, time for Baking…

The steps on the card are so simple to follow, even your kids could do this. Mine were supervised of course. I followed the instructions as you can see from my lovely photos, and I absolutely licked the spoon and the spatula! No shame here…

    After this, it is now time to wait, tick tock…

The smell in my kitchen was amazing! I left them in for 10 minutes, then added a further 3 as they were not quite ready. The centre should be still soft, but the edges should spring back when you touch them.

And would you look at this glorious sight!

I could not wait to get these chopped up. I am not going to lie, I ate all three of these when my intention was to eat one and only use them for the photos.

They were just begging for me to eat them. My boys had one each, and the eldest already wants to take one to School tomorrow!

Our Verdict?

This is a fantastic idea, and the price I think is brilliant. We have all enjoyed ourselves baking (and eating) these brownies, and there are still a lot left. I am unsure how long they will last though as they are amazing.

Would I buy this, oh yes, I absolutely would. I think for £21.99 for 3 months of kits, it equates to £7.33 each, plus the free Cookie Kit worth £5. It is begging to be bought. If you were in my Kitchen when I made and ate those, you would have subscribed immediately.

Remember everyone, you are also supporting a Family owned small business too, and you all hear me talk about how I am a fan of that. Check them out on their Social Media, and Website below to order. They also sell individual kits if you wanted to purchase several, I mean why not?!.
