Most Delicious gluten-free B-Day Cake?

Recommended Posts

It must be chocolate! I am a chocolate lover! What's your favorite birthday cake box mix? I don't want to make from scratch; too much hassle. Must come from a box, just add water, egg, butter, etc.

 

And what about icing? Can be chocolate or vanilla. What's the best? Has to come already made--don't want to bother making it myself.

I like the King Arthur Flour gluten-free chocolate cake mix. Makes two layers (betty crocker ones only make a small cake or one layer) and stays fresh for a long time. Nice chocolatey flavor.  I use the icing in the tub from the store... I want to say Duncan Hines is the gluten-free one, but they all look very similar.  But at least one brand has gluten-free on the label, maybe more than one of the brands.  If you want to ice a two layer cake, it takes 1 and a half tubs of icing to make it thick on there, otherwise you have to put it on thin to make it go all over.

 

The betty crocker mixes taste good, but if you want a big cake you gotta buy two.  But not quite as good as KAF.

I like to use a brownie mix (Glutino I think?) and turn it into a small cake.  The box calls for about 1/4c oil and 2 eggs but I increase the eggs up to about 4 or even 8 if I use coconut flour.  I add baking powder, 1/2-3/4c golden flax meal, and 1/4 c chia meal if I have it. I often add 1-2 scoops (1/4-1/2c) chocolate protein powder too.  It makes a dense cake that is halfway between a brownie and pudding cake.  Tastes good with coconut cream icing or chocolate avocado icing.
