Baking Time For Chocolate Brownie Or Cake Mixes

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I'm pretty new in my attempt to eat gluten-free. I'm also a raging chocoholic. :P I've tried a few different gluten free chocolate brownie or cake mixes. They've all needed a longer baking time than stated on the package. I'd never noticed this with wheat flour baking. My oven temps are correct. Can anyone explain this? I'm just curious.

I use Sylvan Border Farms chocolate cake mix that I buy on (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned). I find just the opposite--I usually cook it 5 minutes less than the package calls for, and it turns out wonderfully! By far my favorite gluten-free cake mix--and I have tried many. Even my gluten eating family loves it!

I find the chocolate stuff needs longer, too. It just depends on the brand, usually!

KipperCat, if you want to make a chocolate cake from scratch, I have a yummy, cheap and a very easy recipe.

My dd likes it wih 3/4 cup choc/pb chips, it makes a single 9" cake or a dozen cupcakes.

Also a great brownie recipe too, I make 1/2 a recipe b/c they are so addictive...and be sure to bake them long enough, they come out gooey so let them set before cutting. I usually bake them longer than the recipe to be safe.

I am not gluten-free, kids are, I love chocolate and baking....these recipes are the best I have ever had, gluten, cake mix, homemade or whatever! They beat everything...I have never bought gluten-free mixes...too expensive.

I recently had the gluten box kind of brownies and I thought they were gross...must be all the additives and chemicals.

I've found the brownie mixes take longer to bake...with any new gluten-free product we usually start at the minimum time and work our way up...corn pasta seems to take a few minutes longer than the longest specified time.

Favorite Chocolate Sinful Cake...It's my gluten-free son's 16th bday today, so I'm about to go frost one now. We make them semi-regularly for birthdays and to bring when we eat at other people's homes as everyone loves them and it's a real treat for my son and I.

Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix - mix in one cup of choc chips!

Candy-Fudge Frosting:

2 cups choc chips

1 can sweetened condenced milk

2 tsp vanilla

melt / mix in saucepan over medium-low heat. Once melted spread over layer cake...dip knife in hot water if hard to spread.
