Good Cake Mix?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter and her boyfriend will be moving in with me shortly to help out.

The boyfriends birthday is coming up and I would like to make a cake for him. They agreed to be gluten free so I want to show that it can be yummy.

I want to use a mix because I haven't been well. Any recommendations as to brand?

King Arthur Chocolate Cake Mix. No one will know its gluten-free.

Pamela's is good, but salty. I wasn't the only one that noticed the saltiness so I do think it's there.

While I know King Arthur is better, Betty Crocker has a cake mix easily available in most stores around me. I know there is some debate over it on here and it's a personal taste thing. However, I like it because I can find it many stores easily and adapt for muffins. I like there chocolate cake, vanilla cake, and brownie mix...to me they compare to other gluten box cake mixes you would find in the store. If you want it to taste like you made it from scratch them get King Arthur.

My wheat-eating friends tried some cupcakes I made from the Betty Crocker gluten-free devil's food mix at a party. They said they were a touch dryer than wheat but that the flavor was good and all the cupcakes disappeared.

You do have to watch them...I usually pull them out earlier for that.

Great, thanks everyone.

I guess you could use yogurt as the liquid to make it more moist?

you can also use apple sauce for the oil...moister and healthier!

Good idea!

There's also a gluten free version of the Cake Mix Doctor cookbook. You can use the Betty Crocker as a base and add ingredients. I really like the orange cake recipe.

I just found out that his favorite is Black Forest Cake.

That should be fairly easy to do.

I like the Betty Crocker mixes and I think the "Cake Doctor" book is great. The more stuff you add, the more you can't tell there is anything different.

I found that the cake mix seemed like a smaller amount than a regular box of mix . . . makes less cupcakes than you would expect. Now I just double it if I want to make a layer cake or a sheet cake.

Would one box be enough for two round pans? I want to slice them and have four layers.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
