I stick with the mixes... My absolute favorite is Pamela's brownie mix, it has the recipe for cake on the side of the bag. Every time I serve this it gets RAVE reviews... everyone loves it and no one can tell it's gluten-free.

I just made a Namaste chocolate cake for my sons 1st birthday. It was a hit. I didn't tell anyone it was gluten free, then when my MIL saw my 3 year old celiac son eating it, she was like, "wow, this is gluten free! it is great, I never would have guessed!". Some even had seconds.

I used olive oil instead of vegtable. It raised nice and high, and was super moist.

I kinda dig Pamela's Luschious Chocolate Cake mix, very yummy and actually tastes like cake. My sister and I have tried some others that definitely tasted like chocolate, but didn't taste much like cake. I doubt it's low fat, but it sure is good!

I made a chocolate polenta cake (actually, I used carob), and added soy whipped cream and cherries, and it tasted exactly like grandma's black forest cake.

if you are interested in the recipe, lemme know. :)

yeah Pamela's has a chocolate cake mix too, but I like using the brownie mix because of the extra chunks of chocolate in it and it is soooooo moist and is always a big hit!

My dh made a chocolate birthday cake for me yesterday. OMG it was WONDERFUL. Let me say it again, OMG it was WONDERFUL. Kroger was out of Pamela's chocolate cake mix, so he saw that Pamela's brownie mix had a chocolate cake recipe on the side. He bought two, mixed both, and put 1/2 in each of two 8" round pans. He just used Pillsbury frosting, but this was possibly the best ever chocolate cake!!! Moist, and very chocolatey

Delicious.

....and what a hubby :)

Oh MY! I just made the Emeril 'flourless choc. cake' tonight for a dinner party. It tastes and has the texture of a godiva truffle. I sprinkled powdered sugar over it, had raspberry sauce, whip cream and garnished with raspberries. Beautiful and deeelish! Very rich though. But had to chime in and say 'what a hit'! Thanks for the suggestion!
