The Duggars have never been the type of family to follow the crowd. So it’s no surprise that they get a little harsh judgment from time to time from fans wondering why they are so set in their ways!
Recently, the Duggar family posted a recipe for “Grandpa Duggar’s Favorite Banana Cake” on Facebook. Some fans felt really strongly about the simple recipe, which calls for yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, and bananas.
“Why why why do you guys eat so much processed food?” one fan asked. “Why use a cake mix and a pudding mix when real food, flour, eggs, milk, butter etc is so much better for you and cheaper and tastier. Seriously mind boggling.”
“They have no clue, really,” replied a fan.
Loyal Duggars fans, however, were quick to defend the family. “Because it’s easier. Why do you care?” one fan clapped back. “If you want to bake it from scratch, or add organic peanut butter you made from your own peanut plants, or make it vegan because you can, knock yourselves out,” said another fan.
This isn’t the first time fans have slammed the Duggar family for taking shortcuts when it comes to cooking or baking. Jill Duggar was recently blasted for using not one but four cans of soup in a spaghetti sauce recipe. Her husband Derick Dillard was quick to defend Jill, calling it one of his favorite recipes.
