Chocolate Birthday Cake

Recommended Posts

I was so excited to recently discover Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Mix. We used it for a birthday cake for a friend who is also gluten intolerant and it was fantactic. We added some chocolate chips to the recipe and you woudl have never guessed by the awesome taste that it was gluten-free. What a treat.

Does anyone else have gluten-free dessert products that they would recommend? I found the Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Mix really easy to prepare and it was economically priced (less then $5). I'm hooked and now realize you can be gluten-free, but still have your cake!

I use the cheesecake part from the following recipe on chocolate cake. It is wonderful but my cheesecake has always stayed on top. I did make a carrot cake by using Betty Crocker's yellow cake mix, adding some grated carrots and spices. Was excellent also.

Search the 36 hour chocolate chip cookies in the search forum above....AWESOME!

I have found that replacing the flours in recipes which have fruits or vegetables in them (ie zucchini or carrot) works without much issue. Even my DH who doesn't like much of the gluten-free stuff likes those. I found a recipe for my own mix..(can't remember where, bummer :huh: ) which works great..I also liked the King Arthur all purpose mix better thatn Bob's Red mill. I'm not a huge fan of the bean flours. They taste metalic to me. Well enough rambling B)
