For my b-day yesterday, I had a vanilla cake from Arrowhead Mills. I had been extremely pleased with all other products by that brand, and was slightly disappointed by the quality of their cake. It was of similar consistency to a real cake, but slightly dry--it was pretty good, but a cake I tried 5-7 months ago from the gluten-free pantry, Danielle's chocolate cake mix, was better--and I don't even usually like chocolate cake that much.

Anyway, it was interesting to get perspective on the quality of Danielle's mix having tried another--both were good and I'd recommend the cake from Arrowhead Mills to those who like a vanilla cake, but to those more impartial about that sort of thing, Danielle's is better......just thought I'd post my reviews :P

Found an even better mix--the Gluten Free Pantry makes a chocolate chip cookie or cake mix. The chocolate cake mix was kinda dry and the vanilla cake mix reminded me of corn bread. This one was moist w/ chocolate chips inside it and the best I've found so far. If anyone finds a mix they like, feel free to add. I started the topic with my own opinions, but please add your own :D . Finding good mixes is a lot of trial and error.

I recently made some cuppeycakes out of Miss Roben's Chocolate cake mix. I am not a big chocolate cake fan, but these were REALLY good. I topped them with some Duncin Heinz frosting and MMMMM.

If you're a pound cake fan (and believe me, I am!), I LOVED 'Cause You're Special's pound cake mix (the classic pound cake mix). I found it to taste as good as the homemade ones I remember--it is a heavy dessert, but most pound cakes are--that's the only complaint I had from my family, who is not gluten-free--otherwise, they said it was great, too. YUM!


Gluten free since December 2004

Soy free since June 2005

Dairy free since July 2006

celiac3270 my friend, if you like yellow cake better than chocolate you have GOT to try the Dowd & Rogers Vanilla Cake mix. It is truly to die for. I LOVE chocolate cake, and I LOVE the Danielle's mix, but I would choose the D&R vanilla cake hands down over the Danielle's. I made both in cupcake form for my sons birthday and all the relatives were there and NO ONE could believe (a) the cakes were gluten-free or (B) that the Dowd & Rogers cake was so great. I ordered mine from the Gluten Free Trading Company if you can't locate it near you.

Order it and enjoy!!!

I will--I do prefer yellow cake usually.

Oh, I tried your potato chip chicken nugget recipe....it was terrific! Everyone loved them. I had tried nuggets using chicken and Ener-G bread crumbs, I had tried a processed, specially gluten-free nugget (Ian's) and it was pretty good. But these are the nuggets we'll be eating from now on. Thanks! :)

RE: Duncan Hines Cream Cheese frosting

In the past, I've blended a small amount of real cream cheese in with the Duncan H. brand. I am sure that it'll work for you if you use gluten-free cream cheese. It'll put the cream cheese flavor back into the frosting and give you a little extra to lick out of the bowl! ;)

Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
