King Arthur Flour review, news and giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. Please enjoy reading our reviews!

King Arthur Flour in Norwich, VT is the meca for all things flour plus so, so, SO much more!

Founded over 200 years ago in Boston, MA, King Arthur Flour is America’s oldest flour company. In 1984 the owners of King Arthur Flour moved the booming business to Norwich, VT where 250 employees now call home. KAF has just completed a large renovation and hopes that you will be part of their next chapter, starting this weekend with their grand reopening. Click here for details on the four day event!

King Arthur Flours are staples in my house. Not many days go by before the flour comes out, the aprons go on, and the baking begins. Muffins are a favorite here. Banana, blueberry, apple, and pumpkin. My children often request waffles or pancakes for breakfast and I am happy to make these from scratch using a mix half KAF white flour with half KAF whole wheat flour. Last week I made chocolate chip cookie bars with this mix of flours and they turned out moist and delicious!

I am excited about King Arthur Flour’s line of baking mixes which are all developed, manufactured, and packaged in Vermont. KAF sent my family their Harvest Pumpkin Whole Grain Scone Mix. The dough came together easily in a few minutes with cold butter, milk, an egg, and a dash of salt. I followed the directions to make traditional triangle shaped scones. The scones came out much larger than I expected. We enjoyed them hot out of the oven. We tried them plain and with a pat of butter on top. Either or, they are great! Pumpkin is the dominate flavor, and you are left with a the taste of sweet ginger. These scones boast a good amount of fiber and are a nice way to start the day (or end the day!).

King Arthur Flour sent me their English Muffin Mix as well. The directions are simple. You mix the dough, let it rise, and then brown (and essentially) bake the muffins on your stove top. The cooking time is less than 20 minutes. I was sent round molds to make my muffins, but I also attempted to make other shapes with tin cookie molds I had on hand. The round molds are clearly made for this and are non stick and easy to use. Once I heavily greased my dog bone, heart, and pumpkin molds they worked fine too.

My English Muffins came out great! Who knew that homemade (all be it with a mix, I am okay with that) English Muffins trump store bought muffins any day! They are light, airy, buttery, and filling. They are wonderful on their own, or topped with your favorite jam, spread, or nut butter (or 100 other things I am sure!). The English Muffin mix says you will have 12 muffins at the end, and you will have 12 LARGE muffins at the end. You could easily spread them out, make them a bit smaller and have 15 or even 18.

The King Arthur Flour website is my go-to website for recipes, tips, tricks, and more. I love the reviews on each recipe (and product) because KAF responds when needed. If an at home baker has trouble with a recipe or product and writes for suggestions they will not only receive suggestions and ideas but the offer to refund their purchase if necessary. KAF gets a A+ for customer service.

  1. Hi Honi-you found out my secret-half whole wheat and half white KAF flour! (although, just to warn you, it makes cakes taste a little too healthy…). Fun article, you need to check out their chocolate LAVA cake mix sometime!!
