Good Cake Mix?
0

15 posts in this topic

My daughter and her boyfriend will be moving in with me shortly to help out.

The boyfriends birthday is coming up and I would like to make a cake for him. They agreed to be gluten free so I want to show that it can be yummy.

I want to use a mix because I haven't been well. Any recommendations as to brand?

King Arthur Chocolate Cake Mix. No one will know its gluten-free.

Pamela's is good, but salty. I wasn't the only one that noticed the saltiness so I do think it's there.

While I know King Arthur is better, Betty Crocker has a cake mix easily available in most stores around me. I know there is some debate over it on here and it's a personal taste thing. However, I like it because I can find it many stores easily and adapt for muffins. I like there chocolate cake, vanilla cake, and brownie mix...to me they compare to other gluten box cake mixes you would find in the store. If you want it to taste like you made it from scratch them get King Arthur.

My wheat-eating friends tried some cupcakes I made from the Betty Crocker gluten-free devil's food mix at a party. They said they were a touch dryer than wheat but that the flavor was good and all the cupcakes disappeared.

You do have to watch them...I usually pull them out earlier for that.

Great, thanks everyone.

I guess you could use yogurt as the liquid to make it more moist?

It was a trick I used in "normal" gluten baking too.

There's also a gluten free version of the Cake Mix Doctor cookbook. You can use the Betty Crocker as a base and add ingredients. I really like the orange cake recipe.

I just found out that his favorite is Black Forest Cake.

That should be fairly easy to do.

I like the Betty Crocker mixes and I think the "Cake Doctor" book is great. The more stuff you add, the more you can't tell there is anything different.

I found that the cake mix seemed like a smaller amount than a regular box of mix . . . makes less cupcakes than you would expect. Now I just double it if I want to make a layer cake or a sheet cake.

Would one box be enough for two round pans? I want to slice them and have four layers.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
